Barbecue varies by region, with the four main styles named after their place of origin: Memphis, Tenn.; North Carolina; Kansas City; and Texas. Memphis is renowned for pulled pork-shoulder doused in sweet tomato-based sauce (eaten on its own or as a sandwich). North Carolina smokes the whole hog in a vinegar-based sauce. Kansas City natives prefers ribs cooked in a dry rub, and Texans … well, Texans dig beef. Eastern Texas’ relative proximity to Tennessee puts it in the pulled-pork camp, but in the western segment of the Lone Star State, you’re likely to find mesquite-grilled “cowboy-style” brisket. Locals defend their region’s cooking style with the sort of fierce loyalty usually reserved for die-hard sports fans. Just as you’re better off not mentioning the Yankees to a Red Sox fan, it’s probably best not to proclaim your love for Texas beef to anyone from Tennessee.
Other countries barbecue in their own style. Korean barbecue features thin slices of beef or pork cooked and served with rice. Argentina has asado, or marinade-free meat cooked in a smokeless pit. And of course, there’s Mongolian barbecue, which is neither barbecue nor of Mongolian origin but rather a type of stir-fry recently invented in Taiwan. But true barbecue is distinctly American. So this Fourth of July, when the parades have ended and the sun starts to go down, throw some meat on the grill and cook yourself a true American classic. Patriotism never tasted so delicious.(time.com)

So my wife was gone on a business trip for just about a week and we’re looking to celebrate her return.
What better way to celebrate any important event than to barbecue!
Danger dog is the slang term for a type of hot dog first sold by street vendors in Tijuana, Mexico, and is also known as a “Tijuana bacon dog.”A danger dog is a hot dog wrapped in a piece of bacon, fried in oil and served on a bun with grilled onions and chili sauce.(Wikipedia)
A whole lot of hugs, kisses, love and helping her grill the meat. 🙂

It’s Saturday and every other weekend I make sure to go visit my Mother in Tracy, Ca with my family. She was born and raised in Greenwood,MS and loves to cook! She taught me a lot about ways to engage in the fine arts of cooking and I am still learning something new from her everyday as time goes by.
She texted me on my way driving to her house letting me know that she was going to begin boiling the ribs in Coke while getting the other side dishes ready as well. If you are not familiar with boiling ribs in soda, I mentioned boiling ribs in Coke or Dr. Pepper in my blog post ‘Bring a bib for some beer and ribs‘ so take a glance at that when you have a chance.
