If you're from the south, this title makes perfect sense. For the rest of you I'll try and explain. "Que" is short for Bar B Que, that slowly, slowly smoked delicacy that we southerners are passionate about. We prefer pork but also enjoy chicken. Beef need not apply. We're finicky about our sauce too. It needs to be red with lots of vinegar, not sweet or mustardy. There are many great Bar B Que places around town. Today I feature two of them. I am not playing favorites, well maybe a little, but I promise to show you more in future posts. Full Moon Bar B Que at the top takes the prize for the best logo. I smile every time I drive by this one on southside. They are known for their spicy relish they add to their sandwiches and the Half Moon cookies. YUM! The bottom photo is the Golden Rule in Irondale , it is near the original restaurant started in 1891! Not long ago I was enjoying a sandwich and spotted Booker ( "the pit master") flipping those Boston butts on the pit. As soon as I finished eating I asked to take his picture. Behold the artist at work. Like I said, in Birmingham, it's all about the Que!
