nothing some collard greens can’t solve

from washington, i aimed for chapel hill, north carolina. north carolina is a rogue state, experiencing a civil war that is as heated as jennifer aniston and angelina jolie at  a dave’s bridal shop sale.  it’s between two cousins as the york lancaster or the hatfield and mccoy families.  (both of them lower class as all get out!)

lexington and eastern.  two strands of how to do that bbq.  lexington (piedmont style–mostly in the west part of the state) barbecue is ketchup, vinegar, pepper.  with sweetening that makes your mouth feel like a snake’s parotid glands vibrate because there’s a mouse in the cage.  this style only uses the pork shoulder.  eastern style is taking every part of the pig except the squeal and only uses a dry vinegar and pepper marinade.  there have been bills in the north carolina statehouse over the issue of which is the best of north carolina and some lawsuits between competing barbecue festivals and restaurants.  me?  i’ll take it all.

 

i headed immediately for mama dips.

chapel hill is part of the raleigh durham chapel hill triangle.  eastern barbecue country.  although there's some barbecue skirmishes about whether mustard seeds and flavoring can be part of an eastern barbecue.  it's almost like crips and bloods.

so here’s a little bit of food porn from lunch with my sistahs!

there is nothing in life that can't be solved with fried chicken, black eyed peas, collard greens, sweetened ice tea.  if tupac and biggie had shared this meal, there would be peace on earth and good will towards east coast west coast.

    Nice, promise me a cup of coffee and then sell the farm and leave town. I thought men were supposed to be unreliable. Have a great tour. I am embarking in a Winnebago juggernaut for the same type of walkabout at the end of the summer. I intend to mix the perfect metaphor in my odyssey, flapping madly Icarus-wise. Best regards. Bob
