I don't know if we'd be considered hardcore BBQ enthusiasts...but we will ride for long distances for a good meal. As part of our second week of vacation, a quest for southern Alabama BBQ had us riding up to Dothan in some of the prettiest weather we've had since we took off work.
Doug found The BBQ Shack during an Internet search for local BBQ joints.
My pulled pork BBQ sandwich was packed with smokey meat, had a good amount of bark to it and the side dish (swooning) was a serving of beans in a thick sauce, chocked with bacon.
Doug ordered the shredded pork plate which came with two sides. The slaw was the fine chopped sort, just the way we like it, and not dripping with mayo. One of the owners explained North Carolina BBQ had slaw slathered on the meat so I gave that a try and stole a fork of Doug's slaw. Delicious!
There were 10 sauces on the table outside and two more were brought out - one was evidently a hot sauce with pepper and vinegar (I think). The others ranged from mild, medium, hot and sweet in both mustard and tomato based varieties. I'm always a sucker for the sweet sauce. (drooling just remebering)
Time to ride back...full bellies, planning for our next trip so I can sample that homemade peach cobbler....or banana pudding.
We need a bell like this one............
You may find them on Facebook too.
What a fun day.......still the rest of this week off and we plan to enjoy every moment.
Interesting week, weather-wise. On Tuesday evening we were able to sit outside enjoying a good dinner as the temperatures were Springlike. ...
