    Good point! I'm from Upstate and while I think the sauce and over quality is debatable.. I usually leave that place in meat sweats so full I feel like I'm gonna puke. Small portion size was not the complaint I was expecting:D

    I'm 145 Lbs and 5'11. I eat like the Hulk though. I ordered the pulled pork meal and The wife had ribs I believe. I tasted hers, but it simply came with baked beans, cole slaw (which was like in a cup) and a roll. How do you expect to fill anyone with that unless they are children...?

    Now I will tell you somewhere in NY that I liked.. Brooks BBQ out in Oneonta. They had great food and great portion sizes. The BBQ sauce was delectable. I can taste it now.. :) MMMM...

    I will caveat this by saying I have never ate at the one in Troy. But at the original in Syracuse you get your choice of multiple sides (typically ~10 to choose from) and never a roll (always cornbread). But like everything in life.. to each there own:)

    You really are a food critic. I enjoy good ole fashion food that is bad for you.. Why might you ask? Because everything that is worth doing has always been said is bad for you. BTW I love the fat on my steaks, because that has the most flavor. Yet I am still a little guy, even after the testosterone boost after my daughter was born. Crazy I know.. Different strokes I guess.

    Where are you at in Tennessee? I used to live in Kingsport, but there and Nashville are the only places I've been. I went to the opera house there to watch The Phantom Of the Opera. So awesome with the swinging chandelier.

    Please don't take my differing opinion as an attack. I appreciate everyone's tastes.... just don't necessarily always agree. It's never personal but always a great topic for discusion for me. I'm always more interested in/with people with differing opinions than mine if they are willing to discuss:)

    Regarding Fat... I have what can officially be classified as an addiction to bacon:p I try to eat healthy but do not go crazy and eliminate all good things from my life.

    There is something we can agree on !! Makes my wife sick when I eat it. Anybody else eat the tails on their shrimp ? She hates that too

    Wife was on vacation, which means I was not....

    We have a place now in Lexington called The City BBQ, based out of Cincinnati. It rocks pretty hard. My heart though is with the Commissary and their almost Soup Nazi demeanor.

    I do, it's wasting if you don't. Now, craw-fish is a whole different story. I really have my limits on that one !

    Take those tails and make a banging seafood stock which you can use for a soup or sauce. Freezes great too. :)

    Edit: oh just to be clear, you really want to use the tails/shells from their raw state, not after they're cooked.

    Sounds like the S3 watering hole has another resident chef! I always make stock out of my leftover since seafood stock is so hard to find and not as good as homemade. I freeze it and use it in the winter months for my soups and gumbos.
    Oh no, I brought up gumbo. Get ready Treb, this thread is about to blow up, since gumbo recipes are open to just as much conversation.!

    Please share a good gumbo recipe. I'm always looking for new things to try.

    I think the trick is the roux. Patience is key! I love to grab a bottle (not glass) of wine, sit on a bar stool and get my roux to the perfect copper color, add in my stock and begin the building process. I can't say there is a "recipe" that I follow, but a great well seasoned stock is an absolute must. Also, some people buy cheap sausage, that is a no no. since the sausage gives so much flavor I use a nice jalapeno or andouille sausage. Living on the gulf, I use live blue crabs and ,crawfish tails, shrimp and whatever else I can find. Oh, no, now,I am getting hungry!

    I do have one secret...... lol :stupido2:
