Monroe County BBQ?
 
I live in Simpson County and work at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. Monroe County is only a couple counties away, but they hold they recipes to their heart!

They take pork shoulder and slice it extremely thin. Place it on the smoke with some indirect heat at 250, mop it with a vineragary goodness that I can not figure out! Wait 11 minutes and then flip and mop it again......Wait 11 minutes and flip and the final mop.

I can not figure out the mop. It is just great! I dont feel like it is a NC type sauce....

Any thoughts or anyone know a decent recipe?

Must have sauce recipe!

Yea that stuff is great. Was raised in Clay county TN which is just across the line from Monroe and grew up eating at those places. There is one in Celina that had the sauce for sale last time I was there, wish I had bought some. Every time I go back up there I have to get me a plate or if my wife goes she knows to bring me back one.

if I can ever catch Francis' open I'll try it for ya & do up a recipe. I live out near Freedom,1/2 way between T-ville & Glasgow.:wink:

p.s. there's nothing worth eating in Glasgow,well other than @ my house.:icon_smile_tongue:

blues_n_cues 01-15-2013 04:30 PM

p.s.s. the new Vette rocks.:becky:

blues_n_cues: the new Vette does rock! I love this car!

Have you been to Big Moose's? I heard it was decent...I hear Frances is the place to go in TVille!

Pappy Q 01-15-2013 04:57 PM

There are also a couple of places in Glasgow that have it. Big Mooses BBQ for one. I've asked a couple of times about it but they are pretty tight lipped as well. I do know it's vinegar based and similar to Eastern NC but has something more that I haven't figured out yet. Very good eating.

Francis' is the only BBQ worth eating w/in 100 miles of here. Big Moose's is ok if you've never had 1/2 way decent BBQ before.it lives more off the name than the quality.:rolleyes:

I ended up w/ some Guy Fieri Carolina sauce for x-mas & that stuff was decent & similar to what they serve around here. my qife told me it may be John Anderson's sauce.

Yea Francis' is one of my favorites as well. If you are ever over in Celina try One Stop, it's at the end of town just across the river as you go towards Dale Hollow. That's where I seen the sauce for sale.
In Red Boiling Springs there's one called Big Eds that's good as well.
There used to be one called Goolsbys right there on the line going from T-ville to Celina but I think it went out, it was good.
Since I grew up with that type of BBQ I don't care for places that only have shredded BBQ.

cool.we go through Celina on occassion. growing up in south & central Texas & doing BBQ all over I can say that these people have a lot to learn about real BBQ. most do that thin sliced pork they call shoulder & it's like jerky w/ a bone in it. somebody opened a place in Edmonton a while back & the pp was too spicy even for me. 2 bites & I couldn't eat anymore of it,they have already folded and there's another place here in town that uses scraps from the pallet factory down the road which often times has pine in it. :wacko:

In St. Louis we call that a pork steak. And, they are delicious!
