Goner Message Board / Memphis / Local foodstuffs

Since I'm going to be in Memphis for Father's Day, and because I have not yet gotten a gift, I was thinking I might bring back some sort of unique non-perishable epicurean item(s). Is there any local bbq sauce, seasoning, or anything else that would be good for this? Thanks.

Definitely recommend Uncle Lou's Corruption seasoning and also their sauce.
Though the last person I gave the "hot" sauce to said it was "hot as all blue blazes."

I also like Stubbs stuff (it's at the Krogers), but I just went to look it up on the web and it says they're located in Austin. So, Texas BBQ sauce...nevermind.

bbq shops' sauce is called dancing pigs and it's great! I somehow accidentally came into possession of some interstate barbecue seasoning and it's really come in handy and is very tasty.

Second. The packaging alone is priceless; that font used for "Corruption" is somehow frightening.

Somebody should be pointing you in the direction of dry rubs as they are more quintessentially Memphis. Rendezvous? Even if it's no good it's still MEMPHIS and your dad could at least play around with it. If it doesn't do the meat justice, he can slather the ribs in sauce and throw them back on the grill.

How's the Dixie Gas BBQ sauce that Goner has hidden amongst the dollar records?

I use that stuff on EVERYTHING...it's not just a BBQ rub. It is great on vegetables, in stir fry, in potatoes and onions for breakfast for dinner night, on fish...everything.

Does anyone know anything about that very, very quaint looking BBQ restaurant on Airways near Lamar? (Maybe near Park?) That place looked like the real deal, but I can't remember the name of it now.

And yeah, Sambeaux...I've bought the Rendezvous rub at the Krogers and used it all up.

B-B-Q is all you need. If your vegetarian, I question your sexuality and recommend the BBQ tofu rub.

Get a Diver from Silky O' Sullivans. There's NOTHING more Memphis than that!

Dang Harvey. Fag? Is this because I live a meat-free life or because I'm not a sports fan? The Goner board can be such a cruel place sometimes.

Nothing like bad Sangria and old draft beer.

It prepares you for for holding the hair of West Memphis girls w/ spray-tans all night.
