Well you guys should come out here to California and have our Santa Maria Barbeque, not sauce on it , just seasoning and cooked over oak  fire  sliced into thin slices. Tri-tip  Pinquito beans,and fresh  salsa, it is soooo good.  The cowboys up in Visalia also add dutch oven cobbler for desert.   The style was started at the great rancheos here .   Yum.

Sounds good Susan, as a matter of fact one of the best steak houses in the world used to be located out there in Gaudalupe called the Far West Tavern, all the Vandenberg crowd used to go there and it was always crowded in the 60s and 70s.  I have heard they closed down after that :(.

David according to a website for Santa Maria , the Far West Tavern is still there , been there since 1912 .  The website says it still looks the same too.

Come on out and enjoy again .  about a three hour drive if I get out of L.A. basin during non rush hour traffic,  Oh wait there is no such thing anymore as non rush hour traffic.

Interesting, maybe what I heard was that it was not as good as it used to be.  Oh well, I'd give it a shot if I ever went back.  The Decor was rustic with  Frederick Remington and Charlie Russell accents, perfect for a steakhouse.

All this talk of yummy food is disturbing; indeed, it is cruel and unusual punishment, as my dear personal physician, the esteemed Doctor Professor Christine, has recently said that Matthew must element tasty food from his diet.

Let me redirect us back to the idea of the Southern Gentleman. Nobody has been able to define this creature. I think that perhaps this is a situation similar to the definition of pornography. According to the US Supreme Court, you might not be able to define it, but you'll know it when you see it. A friend just sent me this anecdote. I think I see a Southern Gentleman in it!

From the state where drunk driving is considered a sport, comes this true story.
Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a bar in Kinston, North Carolina. After last call the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so apparently intoxicated that he could barely walk.

The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes,
with the officer quietly observing.

After what seemed an eternity in which he tried his keys on five different vehicles,
the man managed to find his car and fall into it.


He sat there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.

Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off--it was a fine, dry summer night--, flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights.

He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patrons' vehicles left.

At last, when his was the only car left in the parking lot, he pulled out and drove slowly down the road.

The police officer, having waited patiently all this time, now started up his patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and administered a breathalyzer test. To his amazement, the breathalyzer indicated no evidence
that the man had consumed any alcohol at all!

Dumbfounded, the officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken."

"I doubt it," said the truly proud Redneck.
"Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

Agreed. Sweet has no place on meat. I'm talking about the dry rubs, which is the real BBQ.

Sounds super-good Miss Susan, but that's not BBQ.

Anyone want to discuss southern pizzerias?

Ole

I was staying outside Richmond in a Sleep Inn while visiting the city.  The people at the desk sent me around the corner on Jefferson Davis Hiway to an Italian place for pizza.  Being only one person I ordered a medium pizza figuring I would eat some and have the rest for breakfast in the morning and maybe dinner the next night.  There was a microwave and fridge in the room. 

The owner who was taking my order said no you want a large.  I said no I wanted a medium I am only one person .  He said no large.  After discussing this a couple of times I realized he was pointing to the special board.  The Large was about 2 dollars cheaper !!!! He was trying to save me money without saying any thing out loud.   I took he large sausage pizza out to my car and started out .  Had to hit the breaks at one point on the way home.  hmm cheese all slide off top of pizza.  Sausage also was slices not the crumbled I was use to in California.  I picked the box up off the floor of the van, checked it , slide the toppings and cheese back  and went to moel.  I took my baggies in I carry with me and bagged sets of two pieces up put them in the fridge and ate dinner  I think I was in Richmond three days and I got very tired of pizza.  The last of it ended up in the trash as I left

So there are southern pizza places and the staff are very nice .

With apologies Miss Susan, you said you visited an "Italian place for pizza" -- that can be a world away from a southern pizza. However, as Javal mentioned, there ain't no such thing and we all have better things to do than discussing that which doesn't exist.:?

I agree Ole we should not discuss what doesn't exist.  After all it was an Italian Restaurant Which is different.

PIZZA?

The absolute best pizza, bar none, can be had at Myles Pizza Pub, East Wooster Street, in Bowling Green, Ohio.

Ground buffalo and fresh mushrooms...:P

Ohio pizza. Next, you'll be touting scrapple and haggis -- perfect examples for our southern brethren to make excuses for greens and grits.

Now the best pizza is in a little town in Oregon , Cave Junction .  It is sausage, black olive and after cooking cover with little pieces of avacado .  It is to die for.

I believe it is an Amish abomination...although the Mennonites have been known to partake as well.

I do like peanutbutter and garlic dill pickle sandwiches...grilled  :)

I believe we've already determined that regional abominations exist. Good grief! They eat sea bugs all along the coasts, and inch-thick tender steaks throughout the midwest!  And grits in the southern tier of states. Some areas have even been known to put avocado on pizzas!

"I doubt it," said the truly proud Redneck. "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

Priceless!
