Why the hell did I say that?
Anyway, when it comes to Bar-B-Que and savory stews, Southerners Rule. Like the first rule of Bar-B-Que: Bar-B-Que = Pork.
The folks out west had potential, because so many of them came from the South-land. But you cats lost it when you stopped feedin' brisket to the coyotes and started eating it.
That was the point of no return.
