    Meathead has so much researched information here besides recipes and techniques, it's crazy. A lot of it hides unnoticed.

    Yeah, the French settlers in the Carribean were the first pirates and were nicknamed Buccaneers bc they liked to bbq meat the way the Arawak Indians taught them (boucaniere) being French for BBQ. I read that in a history of pirates (Under the Black Flag). Will check out the amazing ribs history section...

    I did some work in "Laugh-ee-yet" back in the 80s. Great town for gumbo! Every restaurant has a different recipe. My buds and I used to go "gumbo hopping"...bowl of gumbo and a pitcher of beer...each. Then off to the next restaurant for more of the same!

    Ahh yes, "boucaniere", or buccaneer, perhaps some of the first to practice barbecue. http://amazingribs.com/BBQ_articles/...e_history.html

    Traditional BBQ with a Cajun flair...

    This is the first place my now boss (then prospective boss) took me to when she was trying to convince me to move to Louisiana! Sold. They do a nice hot Cajun style dry rub on boneless country ribs that melt in your mouth. I usually get the 2 rib lunch plate, which comes with 2 country ribs, 2 sides, and a link of Boudin for roughly $15. Their Boudin is a local favorite (I call it Cajun pate because it has that consistency--ground pork sausage made with rice stuffed inside a real link). The link is boiled and not crisped or smoked but it is still dynamite. They have a nice BBQ menu that ranges from pulled pork sandwiches to more traditional Cajun dishes like gumbo. They fuse Cajun cuisine with some of their sandwiches, so you can get a grilled cheese stuffed with boudin, pulled pork, or brisket. They also offer traditional BBQ sandwiches and po' boys with any of their smoked meats and sausages. Good sides. You can't go wrong with the slow cooked green beans or the mac n' cheese!

    They are technically open from 10 AM to 6 PM Tuesday through Thursday, but you should get there before noon because they start running out of things after the lunch rush.

    Johnson's is also open from 10 AM to 9 PM on Friday and from 7 AM to 9 PM on Saturday.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
