Official LST BBQ thread?

I'm not going to lie, I'd eat that.

I unfortunately live in an uncivilized part of the world where what we call barbecue is actually grilling. There are starting to be some half-decent proper barbecue places, but it's still a rarity.

You poor soul.

In Florida (born and raised 24 years), pork and fish were king, and it was still real BBQ. As a kid, my Grandfather made me stack cinder blocks a certain way near the carport, and that was the pit for my entire childhood.

Moved to Texas and beef is king here, along with the central Europe/German style, so I got right to work trying to get it down because it is so damned delicious. If you ever come down here to get tattooed by some of our crazy good local shops, I'll give you a BBQ tour and fire up the pit at the house. Same goes for any LST'er.

I live near Kansas City, BBQ hq for the midwest. Have been to the American Royal Cookoff a few times when I was younger, and we also have Jack Stack, Joes (formerly Oklahoma Joes), and a bunch of other good bbq eats within about five miles. Have yet to do any myself though.

You guys know that you just ruined my measly ham sandwich that I just ate for lunch, don't you? I'm a pork fan, but have had some awesome beef ribs, too. There doesn't seem to be a particular style for this area (East Tennessee). We get a mixture of North Carolina vinegar-basted with spicy sauce and slaw on top (sorry, not a fan), Memphis sweet and spicy, Georgia sweet and spicy, and South Carolina mustard-based sauces (really not a favorite, but their pig-in-the-ground meat is awesome!). My favorite is from Dreamland in Birmingham, Alabama. I love the Hickory smoky meat, but it shouldn't be so strong that it gives me heartburn!

Nice thread @Isotope, and you don't happen to work at Franklin, do you?

Our daughter lives in Austin and my 6th session at ROA is coming up June 1st, so we're always visiting.

Usually we hit Uncle Billy's while we're in town.

Hit me up! This is just backyard hack stuff, I sure as hell don't work at a real joint. There is equal and better quality BBQ than Franklin that is low key, same style, and no wait. I will take you if I'm in town. Who's doing your work at ROA? I'm DYING DYING to have Tony Hundahl do a hand drawn Florida panther head with Florida paleo Indian shell axe. I've emailed a few times, no response, and the one day I was in town and could go south of the river (I work weeks in College Station as a research scientist, girl and I have a house in Austin, so I'm there during weekends), Tony and the gentleman who handles his booking were out. I just need to call, but I'm out any additional tattoo money this month after $400 worth of physical therapy and doc appts for the back. Maybe June.

Hooper is doing my left leg. Dreyfus is the scheduler. I don't know what Tony's backlog is like, but it's a great shop. I'll try and get in touch with you upon our next return, 'cuz I'm always up for excellent bbq!

I love pork ribs, but I admittedly have a soft spot for beef ribs. Done well they might even be my favorite. So much meat. So savory.

Hardly anybody does them in any of the places I've lived, though. :(

I just put together my new Weber gas grill. Grilling with gas is a new thing for me; we always had charcoal growing up. Tips for grilling chicken drumsticks like a boss would be welcome. I have a meat thermometer, but I'm still always paranoid about under/overdoing chicken.

Chicken is sooooo easy to turn into sparrow on a gas grill! I'm no cook, but I think one thing is to keep the top open and watch it carefully.

Crispy Cornell Chicken recipe

My husband makes Cornell chicken. Nobody from the south would call it barbecue because there's very little smoke but it is the best outdoor chicken I've ever had.

We did pork ribs on memorial day. We have something in St. Louis called pork steak. That's what we're going to do this weekend.

Sorry I didn't take pictures but I just got home from my town's annual BBQ challenge. They shut down main street and bbqers from all over the country compete to feed everyone the best smoked meats. We had a wild boar gyro and some phenomenal shrimp and sausage kebabs.

    • Hey bro, lookin good   I’m not into tribal art on myself but I like looking at others work. You sure went all in for your first tattoo and didn’t go wrong with art or artist I’d say.  Others have answered your question, but I would’ve definitely told you to stay with that artist if you were happy, changing in the middle of a project would probably not deliver the outcome you wanted. One artist one style .. i have 8 tattoos plus my left arm sleeve and I was worried like you were in the beginning, but I don’t even think about it until around 3 weeks for a truer finished product. I just use a lotion with a skin protective active ingredient like lotion from hospital, keep it moist but not overly as that can bring out the ink from my experience. I normally use lotion twice a day until the peeling is almost done then once a day after showering then when needed once peeling is done. Also shaving the hair off will give you the true look oppose to having a slightly distorted look from hair being over it. I shave my arms only after it’s healed about once every 2 weeks so they look the best. Good luck to you  
    • New to the online tattoo world and getting tattoos for the most part. I’ve had one small piece for years and recently started getting more and more tattoos since the woman I’m with now likes ink oppose to my last wife that didn’t approve. I am into monochrome for some reason, I don’t dislike color tattoos I just haven’t seen anything I would like on me and I am very pleased with black ink. My most recent endeavor started as upper arm hourglass, lower arm sword/rock , then all the background fill in. I hooked up with an artist that freehand so I showed him what i liked and let him put his own look into it from starting to the 98% I’m at now. The idea from the start was full sleeve so he knew what was going to go where when it was time. The background is a mountain, sunset with clouds and some stars. It looks good to me so hopefully I’ll get some good feedback from here about it. I only lack on inside upper bicep right at the arm pit and some touch up. The hourglass gets some more detail to make it pop more and it was the first ink so it’s not as dark now. Well anyway, look forward to talking to you all. Also I forgot to mention the stairway, the date on the first step is the date the woman I love and myself will be married!! The puzzle piece was a his and hers tattoo the girl and me got after we figured why the hell not, lol  so he had to work it into the sleeve.  sorry the pics aren’t very good, hard to pose right and get good pics selfie style
    • Hey bro, i hear ya on the sensitive skin areas.  My left arm has been a free hand sleeve project broken into 2 main tattoos and then fill in sessions. Well let’s say after the first fill in session I didn’t wait long enough to try and finish and damn that arm was just painful from the start. I’m 98% done now and had to pull the cord during 2nd fill in session. On the inside of bicep right at the arm pit lit me on fire, lol. Well my point was; try vasocaine lidocaine spray. After you get going on your ink and have broken skin all over, best after outlines, spray the areas and wait 5 minutes and mostly will be numb except in the most sensitive areas. It also helped with swelling, bleeding, and helped afterward not be so sore.  And no I’m not pitching the product, it just really works.
