No way to choose just one of those sides. Baked beans, mac-n-cheese, coleslaw, and cornbread for me. But, the best way to eat BBQ is when it is served on top of a thick piece of white bread. Once you’re finished with the meat you have a BBQ soaked piece of heaven waiting for you.

Potato salad (or even better, my wife’s German Potato Salad), Noodle salad is good, Baked beans are a must, Corn on the cob, Microbrew beer, a nice little green salad with ranch or blue cheese dressing, watermelon or cantaloupe. Luckily, my wife loves to cook & absolutely everything is cooked completely from scratch. She does the sides, I smoke the meat.
I just got a very nice smoker a few years ago, it improved my outdoors cooking a lot! That & a grill & I’m happy…
So that we can avoid any future unpleasantness, please have the Meh staff review the correct spelling of “collard greens”. I know it’s been pointed out a few times already in the comments, but…it really can’t be overemphasized how critical this is from a unit-readiness point of view. When the SHTF, do y’all want to be running around shrieking and misspelling “collard greens” as “collared greens”, or do you want to be a group of missy-know-it-alls, have your top buttons buttoned, have ice-cold batteries in your tactical flashlights and be spelling “collard greens” as “collard greens”?
It’s ok, you can double-check your math before answering…this one’s a poser.
