Lucky guy! I honestly beleive you can’t go wrong with Sonny’s. Your hardcore ‘Q heads may fuss and holler, but I drove from PepsiCola to Ocala and stopped at every Sonny’s we saw from the freeway.

I was amazed that this was on an ABC news site! Isn’t standard bill of fare for the non-Q-heads just to go to your nearest Chili’s and order the Riblets?

Re: Pointers to BBQ info?
You might want to subscribe to the Smoke ‘n Fire Enquirer. It’s a good monthly newsletter for Q heads.

4-Cheese Jalapeno Poppers
We do a similar thing on the smoker. All the Q-heads call them ABT’s (short for Atomic Buffalo Turd, I lie not).
