Ed Boudreaux’s – Asheville, North Carolina – Brad Nevin

On a recent trip to Asheville, NC, we made a stop at Ed Boudreaux’s for some Q as well as to sample the many sauces they have ‘on tap’. I love Asheville, and walking the streets in search of good food and beer is a great way to spend the day. Today’s order was the pork plate with andouille cheese grits and collard greens. The sides were good…the grits could have used a little more cheese. but the collards already had some liquid heat added so they were perfect. The pork was standard…a little dry for my spoiled taste, but after adding a mixture of Carolina Vinegar bbq sauce and some Alabama White, look out! Our server was not very interested in my request for their spicy pickles, which is my favorite part of the experience. After a second request, he brought me a pile of store-bought dill slices…not at all what I was asking for. He must be a newb on the scene, because they used to have these little spicy pickles that went so well with the bbq. Anyway, it’s always a decent meal at Ed Boudreaux’s, but next time I’m heading to the hood for some ribs I heard about.

    If you’ve slaved for hours over a hot fire to produce melt-in-your-mouth pulled pork, the last thing you want to do is throw a generic BBQ sauce on top. I’ve come across this article which is a complete guide on sauces:
