Yep!

As weird as it may sound, Stonewall Jackson's arm is buried about 2 miles from my house. He was shot in the arm by "friendly" fire at the battle of Chancellorsville. They amputated his arm and rushed him behind the lines to recuperate. About a week later, he died of pneumonia a few miles south of me at Guinea Station which was a train station supply line away from the fighting for Lee's Army at the time. If you ever get a chance to visit Guinea Station near Thornburg, VA and hear the lecture, it's well worth the visit.

Well I sure would love a visit from the "Ghost of Louisiana BBQ Past" because "Louisiana BBQ Present" seems to be pretty much AWOL.

Now the future of Louisiana BBQ on the other hand.....

Having grown up less than 30 from Louisiana I know Louisiana turns out great BBQ too! I grew up eating Cajun style foods regularly. A lot of my family back home still makes gumbo on Christmas.......or any other day that provides a reason for good food!

I guess I haven't really checked out the scene in thw rest of the state, but I know that down here in the Southeast section decent Q Joints are few and far between. Even as far over as Lafayette. If you go further north there might be some I don't know about.

Same goes for just about anywhere, here in San Antonio, decent Q joints are hard to come by. There are a couple places I want to check out, problem is they are a 30 min. drive. I'm surprised at the amount of people that frequent crappy bbq joints... it's almost offensive.
