Great Hot Dogs at Rutt's Hut? Fuhgedaboudit!

Good review. The only way I eat hot dogs is fried, on a hamburger bun with lettuce and tomato. LOL

Best barbeque sauce out of a bottle?

Well I guess what my "issue" is is that you dont know what the hell you are talking about. I guess the 15 years I spent in NC trying to find good barbecue was completely lost. (scratches head).

NOBODY in Western NC puts WATER in their damn sauce, they use a red tomato based sauce in the Piedmont and mountains. And damn near everybody puts water in their vinegar based sauce as dictated by Eastern style. And Scotts has WATER in it. Take a swig, thats not straight vinegar, its been diluted, and apparently so has your brain.

Oh my, do you even know how vinegar is made? Its a vinegar sauce thats been diluted by water, common in many Eastern NC recipes. If you have a bottle of Scott's and cant discern the water in their recipe then you don't have any business posting on these boards.

This is what I said...."It was the best all round sauce IMHO, and you could mix it with anything." Disagree all you want, I didn't say it was the BEST sauce, if you know of another "all around" sauce that had the versatility Kraft's had before it was reformulated then why are you keeping it a secret? And we are talking about store bought sauce, not your grandaddy's recipe.

Because so few people eat that stuff outside Eastern NC. Scotts makes a good marinade for ribs, but I would never pour that watery crap on a pile of pulled pork.

They've always had sauce, just not what they're famous for.

Kraft was great because it mixes with anything, not so with other designer sauces. I just made a habanero puree and poured it right in the bottle. Great stuff, or it was.

Kraft is way underrated by barbecue snobs. It was the best all round sauce IMHO, and you could mix it with anything. I'll write the company too, Lea and Perrins went back to sugar after a huge backlash by consumers, maybe Kraft will listen too.

Blue Front is very good. I like the hot version, but both hot and mild are outstanding. Good suggestion.

Aw man what I wouldn't give for a Pig down here in Jacksonville.

The Homewood store at 3000 Montgomery Highway has it. I've shopped there before and I just called and the manager said they had both the Mild and the Hot and Spicy in stock. When I'm in town I usually bring back all kinds of supplies from there, mainly Grandpa Yoders Hot Chow Chow, they dont know what the hell that is in Florida.

Best Single Order of Steak in Toronto

Yeah I think Barberian's is the best in Toronto. The ambiance is like stepping back in time about 40 years, the wine selection and cellar is world class, and the steaks are absolutely top notch, so is the service.

Yeah, probably not. LOL

I checked the website, Target and Walmart nationally and regional southern chains only.

You know I couldnt find Grace Hot Jerk Marinade down here, I asked the Walmart manager about it and he looked it up, found it in the system and ordered a couple of cases. They're pretty good about things like that. Oregon needs this stuff. LOL

Its made in NC, I'm in Florida and we get it at Publix, Winn Dixie, and Walmart. I've found it in Walmarts in Alabama and Tennessee too so maybe they have it where you are too.

It not like any klnd of North Carolina sauce anybody has ever seen, its not a tomato base, its not a mustard sauce, its some freaky hybrid thing that does magic to barbecue, especially ribs and chicken. And it has anchovy paste in it, I am of the opinion that anchovies make everything taste better. Good luck in your search, Amazon has it too... at least you can read the reviews there but its kind of expensive to be shipping around. Its 3.79 in the stores.

You're all wrong. John Boy and Billy's Grillin Sauce is the best barbecue sauce in the known universe, and I've tried pretty much all the ones ya'll are talking about. Sorry.

Good eats in St. Augustine/Jacksonville?

Checkers sucks. And if you're sending people from St Aug to Checkers you need to check your map....Smokin D's is the best BBQ in the entire area, and it actually has a St Aug address on Phillips Hwy.

best florida supermartkets

Terry's Country Store is the best market in Jacksonville, its on Penman at the beach. An old fashioned butcher shop and prices that are 30% lower than Publix. Great local institution. Publix and WD suck.

Orlando - Convention Center Area?

Cafe Tu Tu Tango is my favorite place in all of Orlando, its super fun and the food is amazing. Make sure you have reservations.

Not far from I Drive is Mr Beefy's if you want to know what Arby's copied to start their business. A great 60's throwback. The best BBQ in the area isn't far away on Michigan.... at Cecil's, its fantastic.

TOP MEXICAN IN FLA

All due respect to the other recs, the best Mexican I have ever had (and I worked on the border, in Guadalajara, and Mexico City for 6 years) is Las Tapatias on Old Baymeadows in Jacksonville. My GF is a relatively skinny gal from Arizona and the first time I took her there (against her will) she had a $35 tab all by herself. Its purely incredible is all, and the restaurant is in the back of a store that sells cowboy boots and tack. LOL

Best BBQ in Jacksonville???`

Thanks pg, I'm going to Atlanta next month and will check that out on the way.

On the other hand, his website has a picture of French bread and beer, which
is not on his menu. Bad sign. I think I'll just stop at Gator's instead. Chopped and
sliced pork only according to the menu.
