    Lawrence is nice. And it's right outside of KC if you want to go into the city. I'm down in Wichita myself.

    Honestly, the only time I left Lawrence was to go to the KC airport! Only time I've been in western Kansas was when we drove back from CA to IN. Went through Topeka but that's it.

    I too grew up in Texas and miss good ole Texas Barbecue. Dry rub is the way to go. Haha, just ordered a Rudy's brisket for New Years, but nothing beats Lockart Texas for great barbecue. As to NC, I agree with previous poster, two kinds of BBQ here, vinegar base in the west and tomato based in the east. Red or white slaw on your pulled pork sandwich?

    For Texas BBQ I'm a huge fan of the Salt Lick outside of Austin. That place rocks!

    Saw film from that place on both Man vs. Food and Top Chef (two of my absolute favorite shows). Looks amazing and too legit.

    Edit: And, wow rookie mistake at the store. I grabbed cilantro instead of parsley for dinner. Ugh, you'd think I'd be able to tell the difference! Should be fine either way though I don't know if it'll pair well with tarragon.

    I'm just getting into slaw as I have been so turned off for my entire life by the gross restaurant slaw served here:mad:. I've had a few awesome homemade ones that are delicious so I now want to pair a good one with my pulled pork. If anyone wants to help spread good slaw to a Northeastern dude, please PM me or post a recipe here.

    Yep, and while I don't eat any true bbq, I loves me some well made slaw.
    Two biggest problems: either too much sugar or too much mayo. For me, the easiest way is: equal parts red and green cabbage, .5 parts carrots all finely grated/julienned. Mix in some dijon mustard (not too traditional), small amount of mayo, a white vinegar (white wine, white balsamic, apple cider are all fine). Season with salt and pepper, BAM, done! There's plenty of other stuff you can add into it, but I like it nice and traditional. Celery salt is nice, some Tabasco, sour cream, red onion, herbs; the skies the limit. :D

    Alright, I promise this will be the last song post (have most of my dinner prep done, waiting for the wife to come home to finish). Andrew Bird is one of our absolute favorites. We've seen him 3 times now and are just wow'd each time. One of the most talented artists out there today. Classically trained violin player, insane whistler, guitar player and overall great composer.

    Been down with the flu the past few days, so since it seems this place is hopping again, wanted to drop this back in and see if there were any other options. Thanks BB, for your suggestion.

    As for BBQ and cooking. I also cooking most of the time, when we are eating at home. I love BBQ, and in particular smoking.

    As others have stated, smoking is so laid back and easy - the hardest part is probably prepping the meat. Once you get used to how your smoker reacts when increasing/decreasing oxygen, you rarely have to do much.

    I would highly suggest people who love to smoke, try building your own smoker. I built my smoker out of a 50 gallon drum for less than $60 in hardware. Best thing I have probably ever done - for food gadgets. When I brought the drum home, my wife said "why did you buy a big steel trash can"

    You can usually get the drums for free, or very little ($25ish) from an apple orchard, if you have any near you. Getting food grade drums are the best, because they don't have a liner inside that you'd need to burn out. If you can't get food grade drums, you can get a drum from anywhere, just make sure you burn it out, with lots of wood/pallets and then grind out any left over liner. After that easy peezy. $50 - $75 worth of hardwaare later, half hour to 1 hour of time, and you have a smoker ready to go.

    I got lucky, and got mine powder coated for free as well.

    Have I mentioned, I LOVE BBQ?

    I am a New Mexican but when it comes to bbq I do not mess with the Lone Star State. In fact, I am going to play Lyle Lovett's That's Right, You're Not From Texas right now!

    And slaw with my pork? Red, the only way to go imo. :)

    If I might add from Cali....BBQ means TriTrip, santa maria style seasonings (like SuzieQs or a home made mix with garlic, onion, seasoned salt and more garlic) or a bacon wrapped filet mignon, with santa maria style seasonings or burgers..all on a red oak fire pit/BBQ in the back yard with lots of friends and family.
    At least that's what it means to us....
