Fried chicken in Alabama or Mississippi?

If you are in the central part of Alabama I would seek out Jim n Nick's Bar BQ, or
Johnny Ray,s everything is good. Also try the BBQ Bake Potatoes that they have
Delish. Use to live in Hoover and Mountain Brook Al but now in Toronto Canada
If you try one or the other enjoy and have some for me.....

Where are the Lemons or Lemon juice??? I know that this is a basic sauce ,but coming from Alabama this is how we make sauce.
I know that their are parts all over the south that have there way of making a good BBQ sauce but I have to have LEMON'S.

New England Hot Dog Buns

Having lived in Derry, NH which is 45 mins outside of Boston I had the chance to enjoy these tasty buns. I have to admit I thought they looked
a little odd, coming from Alabama we only see the long or short buns
split down the middle, and rounded on the sides. Now living in Toronto
Canada those odd hot dogs I miss. Thank's for reminding me.

Chicken and Okra, Fresh from the Fat

In Alabama our chicken is off the chain too, and yes to make good chicken the crust is the secret. The spices in the flour base is the trick, and the oil temp is also important.
If in Oakland I will seek the place out. Thank's !!!!

Skillet Cornbread

In the South true skillet cornbread is cooked on top of the oven.
Cooking until bottom has browned and top has set, and then you
flip it over, and let the top cook and brown. It takes alot of trys to get
it right, but when you do you will be happy with results.

Black-Eyed Pea and Caramelized Onion Salad

I am from the south, and black eyed peas are something that we enjoy
We make a dish kinda like this but we use chopped raw onions, and
chopped tomatoes that are in season and pour juice from peas over top.
I like the idea of cooked fennel instead of onion, they both taste the same.
Will make this soon.
