Time to stock the freezer with bacon.
I think that hog farmers and beef ranchers are going to have bad go of it. And unless you didn't know you cant just hold off and sale next year. The packing houses mainly only wont a certain size hog and certain size steer. This makes their butchering easier.
I use to like the sauce at Jay's BBQ. I haven't eaten there in years but it was a bit thinner than most sauces you get at the grocery store. But it tasted good. I believe the Sherwood Forest location as well as Government St are still open.
I'm not a huge bbq guy but Blacks in Texas, there are a few locations probably 5 or 6 and WOW. There is also a place in San Marcos called Hays County. Unbelievable how good both of those places are!
A friend's wife is from some town near Black's. She brought a bunch back one time from a visit home. I thought it was good but nothing to rave about. I've had better in Memphis and in Mississippi
Probably because it traveled. Eat it on location because what kind of nut gets "take out" bbq? Especially from a state away! Good grief dude, I worry about you!
Blacks is good, but there is a place in Hondo Texas, it's a little hole in the wall on the left side of hwy 90 as you enter town from the east. Their brisket is superb, best I ever ate at a bbq joint anywhere.
Some might find this interesting.
Wilber’s BBQ, in Goldsboro (about an hour west of me) was normally listed as a top 2 or 3 in any authoritative list of Best Bbq in NC lists. I found it interesting as it appeared to be at the end of the runway of Seymour Johnson AFB with the F-15s frequently interjecting their extreme jet noise as one bit down on a BBQ sandwich!
Anyway it closed about a year ago to the surprise and sorrow of the general public, but BBQ insiders knew the end was coming, accentuated by a new by-pass among other things. Good news, it was purchased last year and planned to open "like it used to be" this spring. I’m sure Covid-19 has fouled that up.
The link is to their new website. In the top right corner is a link to the menu. The menu is absolutely quintessential NC BBQ Joint.
That's cause you obviously never had a good one. Try salt lick's beef rib in dripping springs texas
