Okay. I hate barbecue. Maybe that's a strong word. I hate beef barbecue so any other barbecue is not my favorite. Let me explain why.

When I was a kid, my parents loved Luther's Barbecue. Is it still around? I don't know. We ate there a lot. Not only did we eat there but whenever we went with friends to Pass Christian or Florida for the weekend my mom would send a big ole tin vat of Luther's Beef Barbecue. Makes me want to vomit just thinking about it.

But pregnancy does strange things to a person. I am craving a pulled pork barbecue sandwhich. So I got my fat pregnancy butt over to Langenstein's and bought a Boston Butt and am going to slow roast it for 6 hours, basting it every so often with a wet mop-that's what the recipe called it. I'll let you know how it turns out. If it turns out finger lickin' good I'll have to take a photo and email to Kate F. who is one of my favorite food bloggers. She may not be interested. She lives in the north. Do they eat barbecue in the north or is that an ignorant question?

I am no fan of BBQ either--especially Luther's. The one in Metairie is no more (thanks to Katrina--yea!). There's good BBQ in Baton Rouge at TJ Ribs--we'll actually drive the hour every blue moon just to get their ribs. I also like Voodoo BBQ. That's about it for me. Good luck with your Butt recipe. Let us know how it turns out!

When we can get our hands on it we sure do! I am a huge babyback rib fan, though I also like Carolina-style pulled pork sandwiches (at least, my Pacific-Northwestern-turned Northeastern self doesn't know much so maybe it's from elsewhere). I'm not huge on beef bbq either, though. I can't wait to hear how this turns out!
