Marshall Manson confesses to being a “barbecue snob,” specifically an aficionado of pulled pork barbecue prepared in a vinegar-based sauce, Carolina style.
Having acquired my taste for it in Texas and then having come to barbecue maturity in Alabama, I’m much more liberal in my habits. As long as it’s prepared properly, I’ll eat beef or pork, with or without sauce. Preferably, with some ranch style beans and cornbread on the side. About the only approved manner of barbecue preparation I shun is the North Carolina abomination of topping it with cole slaw. Then again, I don’t like cole slaw.
On this, however, Marshall and I are in absolute agreement:
Some people seem to like to eat their barbecue on a hamburger bun. I can’t abide this nonsense. Why would you want to fill yourself up on a nasty, tasteless, puffy bun when you could eat more barbecue?
