of recent note were actually at two barbecue joints:
"famous dave's hickory-smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers and chipotle peppers makes this a spread worth swimming upstream for. Served with fire-grilled flatbread."
this one caught me off guard. much more smokey and texture-rich than other smoked salmon i'd ever had--some kind of dry country smoke, maybe? anyone familiar with what might have made it so special?
and the other from buddy's barbecue:
buddy's nachos with chips, sour creams, cheddar, fresh tomato and scallions, served with pulled pork or chicken with salsa on the side. the sweetneess of the pork with the creaminess of the sour cream is ungodly.
i'm so obviously a southern gentleman after making this post.
