Blog Roll

A forum I frequent has started a Blog Roll. With a new topic or question every week for all to discuss, it is going to be fun to read the different responses.

The first question is: What's the farthest you have traveled for food? Did you fly across the country just so you could have the perfect bowl of clam chowder? Did you cross the state line just for a scoop of ice cream? What was it, how far did you travel, and was it worth it?

Luella's BBQ in Asheville, NC is about 45 miles from where we stay when we are visiting North Carolina. If I were to measure the distance to Luella's from home, it would be a 316 mile round trip. We often ride our motorcycle in the beautiful mountains and back roads of North Carolina. Including Luella's in the itinerary is perfect.

Meat is at the heart of a BBQ place and Luella's has a big heart. Their selection of meat includes pork, beef, turkey, ribs and more. Perfectly seasoned, the meat is always moist and tender.

Hubby likes the ribs which have a St. Louis style seasoning.

I like the pulled pork sandwich with slaw, of course. Sometimes I am in the mood for the Sweet Pisgah Sauce. others times, I pour on Scooter's Famous Vinger Sauce. Yes, the meat is really piled that high on the sandwich.

Or, you can get a plate. I love their hushpuppies. Adding collards to the plate makes it look so healthy. I like to get a side of fried okra. Hey, underneath that crispy breading, okra is green!

It has always been worth the trip when we visit Luella's.
