Highway food, literally…

While driving from Delmar to Dewey Beach, we drove through some fairly rural areas. See cows below for evidence.

We also drove past a BBQ cart on the side of the highway. It promised NC style BBQ. We had to check it out. Notice how happy that little pig and chicken look on the sign. They’re not gonna look so happy in my stomach.

They had two cookers set up. Look at these fine specimens of bbq wizardry. They had plenty of pork ribs and chicken smoking up in these bad boys.

We got the rib plate. It came with about half a dozen good sized ribs. It was NC style, so it was a vinegary sauce. You could tell it’d been cooking for a long time. The meat came right off the bone and it had a nice caramelized crust. Also in the platter was some delicious sweet corn that came from a can (nothing wrong with that) and a roll that was surprisingly good. Perfect for soppin up some rib grease. Yum! All this for $8 and a priceless view of cars whizzing by.
