Here's Billy Rodgers' version of a favorite backyard barbecue dish from his childhood. He dedicates it to his mother, Anna G. He cherishes memories of going with her to visit his grandmother in the summertime. Billy said, "Grandmother lived in a small town where everyone still sits on the front porch and waves at you as you drive by, whether they know you or not. Word would get out around town whenever my mother came home to visit. When people found out that she was cooking dinner, the house would fill. Anyone and everyone would come by to get a plate and sit a spell to enjoy each other's company."
"I would really get excited when I saw my uncle put his stereo speakers in the backyard, the adults setting the tables with red gingham check tablecloths on them and placing a big galvanized tub filled with ice and such between the tables. Yes! It was cookout time! I used to love to watch everyone try to get that old cast-iron grill fi red up to cook homemade oversized burgers, pork chops, and chicken. Mmm, mmm, mmm — I can still smell it as I reminisce. Here is a recipe that takes me back to those wonderful summer days in my grandmother's backyard. I hope that you enjoy it!"
