Homage to the Shack Tater

>> Sunday, July 13, 2008



Other than my family there ain't a whole lotta stuff I miss about Arkansas. Catfish would be one thing, good barbecue would be another. Oh the barbecue. And when I say barbecue I mean pork. Pulled pork. With a vinegary sauce. And cole slaw. Put in on bread and it's a sandwich, put it on a spud and it's a Shack Tater. I do big pink puffy heart love the Shack Tater.

I still can't get catfish here, but thankfully Joe's came along or I might've had to move back. Joe's pulls some good pork, and makes a real nice sauce, but I sure do wish they'd learn to make good slaw. I've learned to love a slaw-less sandwich, but the tater? Needs the slaw. Sometimes, when you want it done right, you just gotta do it yourself.

1. baked potato
2. pulled pork
3. coleslaw
4. butter and sour cream
5. bbq sauce

Radishes are not a traditional accompaniment but do a fine job of filling up an empty space.

Ah, you wouldn't have moved back, silly. I do miss the shack tater too. A lot. Remeber all that meat that came extra around the tater? Dave's Famous BBQ does a pretty good one, but still not the same.
Oh well

*drool* I love pulled pork more than is natural or healthy... Good 'cue is not easy to come by. Ah well. That does look 'lish... We have a Dave's somewhat in the area but it's not the best cue...

MMMMM pulled pork does sound good, but I don't eat pork. I've had chicken done that way and boy is that good eats. I'll have to remember to cole slaw trick when I make it next. I love cole slaw on a turkey sandwich with russian (aka thousand island) dressing. They used to make a pastrami sandwich that way at a deli where I grew up called a Rachel, (I had it with turkey instead of pastrami) and grew to love cole slaw on things. MMMMM.
