LOL... priceless ....... They are correct. Florida has ( where I lived for 26 years) ,after this resent election discontinued it affiliation with it's Southern heritage, except for a few pockets of resistance fighters in the North,West, and a narrow corridor in the middle( excluding Orlando).

There are pockets of Southernity in Florida but they eat alligator.

Love the video. It would have come in handy at our rehearsal dinner in MD. Instead I had to give a little speech.

Well worth my three and a half minutes. The silhouette of California representing Florida was hilarilous!

You have me laughing here in NC!
One of my brothers from NY spent one

Where is Oklahoma?

George Grant said...

Michael: You're right. There are several omissions. I had a great brisket sandwich in OK City once, that was out of this world. No mention of Kansas City BBQ--some of the best anywhere. And what about St. Louis ribs? Alabama gets short-shrift with no mention of Dreamland. Nothing about the smoked German sausages I've savored in Texas, Missouri, and Pennsylvania either. And then there is the whole issue of Speedies from New York--yes, New York. Finally, what would Bobby Flay (the New Yorker) say about the whole issue of leaving out Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho?

SEChapman said...

Oh George, remember it's a Southern thang..lol...and Oklahoma was still Indian Territory.

Lawrence Underwood said...

George, if you think Dreamland has good ribs you've not tasted the best that Alabama has to offer. We have a dream land in Mobile. It is alright. But the real ribs are at a little joint called the Brick Pit. You need to come down and we can get some. Of course the ones off of my pit ain't to bad either ;)

Ode to barbecue! Now than can't be beat.

Was that fiddle player actually playing? I saw his bow moving back and forth.....but no sound. All I could hear was the pickin' and the howlin'

Beef. It's what's for dinner. I must say that this west coast boy enjoys grilling barbecue when he can, and will no longer be using that word to refer to my grill or as a verb. Best bbq I've ever had was at a little hole in the wall diner in the Hill Country of Texas. Smoked brisket. Heaven here on earth! MMMMMM!

This is really funny. Our church here in Virginia has many members from the west coast, and I can remember several times being invited to "barbecue" only to arrive and find a cookout (hamburgers and hotdogs) and no "barbecue". It still confuses me to this day.

I realize that folks here in Kentucky used to be a part of Virginia before it was broken up into numerous states but do they have to show such a lack of edyoukashun to put a silhouette of Virginia under the name Kentucky? By the way, I am a Virginian born and raised and a current Kentuckian.
