Tyler, Ethan and I take a road game trip every year with the camper. Part of this tradition is the quest for good BBQ, especially ribs. We found 2 good spots. This year we’re in Alabama to see the dawgs play the War Cam Eagles in Auburn.
Chuck’s BBQ in Opelika: “Jesus the bread of life” was on back of the employees’ t-shirts.Maybe its just me, but I like my ribs a little chewy, not quite so tinder. Chuck’s ribs fit my preference. Ethan usually gets pulled pork. Chuck’s pork was OK, I’ve had better. The beans and slaw were real good, too. I called to ask them if their ribs were baby backs or spare ribs. They told me spare ribs, but we were served baby backs.
Mike and Ed’s in Auburn: the t-shirt back said “you can smell our butts for miles”. M n E’s had better ribs. Better sauce. They had a strange concoction called BBQ slaw. It was slaw with BBQ sauce in it. Very good. The joint was jam packed. I think we were the only non-tiger fans, which has got to tell you something. Mike and Ed’s sweet tea was awesome. Evidently, the serve a lot of it –>
