A plate!! By golly you are one fancy lady. Go to Joe Cotton's BBQ joint in
Robstown, Texas, or any other really good BBQ joint, and you get your
fixings on a piece of butcher paper on top of an oilcloth tablecloth.
Couple slices of white bread, some dipping sauce, few dill pickles, some
jalapenos, side dish of pinto beans with fatback, follow it up with HO HO
for dessert. Lip smacking good. We used to order a quart of end cuts with
dipping sauce and take it home and make sammiches out of it. Only
restaurant I ever was at that the State Poleece let the helicopters land in
the road median for lunch. Probably because the State Poleece helicopter
landed there pretty regular.
