    I think the old black people's place was Smoky Bones. It wasn't bad at all but the other day I saw that the name had been changed to Garden District BBQ. Was a white guy who owned the place. I asked him if he had bought it and he said the property had been in his family since 1929. The former owner fucked up someway like not paying the rent.
    He said the pitmaster was the same guy as before though. I got a pulled pork sandwich and beans. Was alright but not great.

    A couple of y'all said you like Sweet Baby Ray's sauce. I had a booth at the Mandeville Trail Head back in 2010 - 2013. People loved SBR. In general, people love sauce that is way to freaking sweet. I have never really looked, but I would bet that SBR's probably has high fructose corn syrup in it. It is just too damn sweet for me. I have found my self, over the last 20 years, gravitating toward more vinegary bbq sauces. SBR is sickly sweet. BUT, folks in general, love it.

    You would probably like the North Carolina style sauce. I have eaten at a couple of BBQ places there and the sauce is vinegar based.

    I bought a bottle of Jack Miller's once. Tasty but too thin.

    Sometimes I mix in some Heinz 57 steak sauce. For BBQ shrimp I don't use any BBQ sauce but I add Heinz 57 to melted butter, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice and crushed garlic and saute the unpeeled shrimp in the mix. Eat the shrimp alone or makes a great poboy. Also good for a chicken poboy. If you have some picka pepper sauce add a little to the mix.
