Also, is anybody tailgating tomorrow? We'll probably head over to Neyland early to check out the festivities and would love to mingle with some Razorbacks.

Regionally, BBQ sauces are a very interesting aspect.  All of the BBQ sauces I have tried I had high expectations, and with some my expectations were not met, and then with some my expectations got met.

Here is the list of BBQ sauces I have eaten.  All of the following are Mild, no Hot Sauce.

Pink Flamingo    Fort Smith, Arkansas
Whole Hog Cafe    Fort Smith, Arkansas location
Jerry Neel's    Fort Smith, Arkansas
Penguin Ed's    Fayetteville, Arkansas
Rivertowne    Ozark, Arkansas
Back Door BBQ    Clarksville, Arkansas  (restaurant no longer in existence)
Hog Pen    Conway, Arkansas
Smitty's    Conway, Arkansas
McClard's    Hot Springs, Arkansas
Stubby's    Hot Springs, Arkansas
Uncle Joe's    Branson, Missouri  (restaurant no longer in existence as of several years ago, but sauce was still available up to around a year-and-half ago; I don't know since then)
Sadies    Branson, Missouri
Cowtown    Kansas City, Missouri
Fiorella's Jack Stack    Kansas City, Missouri
Gates and Sons    Kansas City, Missouri
Three Little Pigs Kansas City Competition Sauce    Kansas City, Missouri
Three Little Pigs Kansas City Sweet Sauce    Kansas City, Missouri
Three Brothers (Different Mothers)    Kansas City, Missouri
Wabash BBQ    Excelsior Springs, Missouri
Smokers Wild    Paola, Kansas
K&M    Spring Hill, Kansas
Curley's Hickory Barbeque Sauce    Hutchinson, Kansas
Elmer's    Tulsa, Oklahoma
Sa-Mokin Competition Recipe Barbeque Sauce    Tulsa, Oklahoma
Head Country    Ponca City, Oklahoma
Runt's    Muskogee, Oklahoma
My Place    Muskogee, Oklahoma
Fish's    Tahlequah, Oklahoma
Butcher BBQ    Chandler, Oklahoma
Van's Pig Stand    Shawnee, Oklahoma
John's BBQ    Okemah, Oklahoma
Horizon Original    Perry, Oklahoma   (Horizon also makes Smokers)
Lotta Bull BBQ    Marietta, Oklahoma
Sweet Spirit Foods    Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Corky's    Memphis, Tennessee
Interstate BBQ    Memphis, Tennessee   (Jim Neely's place)
Rendezvous    Memphis, Tennessee
Neely's    Memphis, Tennessee   (Pat Neely's place)  used to also have a location in Nashville, Tennessee, but I don't know if it is still there
Big Bob Gibson Championship Red Sauce    Decatur, Alabama
Jack's Bar-B-Que    Nashville, Tennessee   (on Broadway)
Sticky Fingers Memphis Original    Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina  (a Memphis style sauce)

To me, the best sauces out of that list (in specific order)

1a. Van's Pig Stand   Shawnee, Oklahoma
tie  1b. Curley's Hickory Barbeque Sauce   Hutchinson, Kansas

2.  Lotta Bull BBQ   Marietta, Oklahoma

3.  Big Bob Gibson Championship Red Sauce   Decatur, Alabama

4.   Wabash BBQ   Excelsior Springs, Missouri

To me, the worst sauces out of that list (in specific order)

1.  McClard's   Hot Springs, Arkansas   (just a weird BBQ sauce, especially the consistency of it; reminded of salsa that is to dip chips in)

2.  Interstate BBQ   Memphis, Tennessee

3.  Fiorella's Jack Stack   Kansas City, Missouri

4.  Jack's Bar-B-Que   Nashville, Tennessee

5.  Three Brothers (Different Mothers)   Kansas City, Missouri

I have never eaten at Wild Horse Mountain BBQ in Sallisaw.  I have though heard from people that it isn't as good since the Father passed away.  The Son now operates it, and I have heard that the Father didn't pass on his recipes to the Son  (the Father took the recipes to his grave).

I have never tried Big Bob Gibson's White Sauce.  People do feel that it really excels with BBQ chicken.

I am wanting to try some more BBQ sauces.  Here is what I am wanting to try.

RV Parking for Auburn
« Reply #15455 on: October 06, 2015, 10:32:49 am »

Is there such thing as an RV exchange board for RoadHogs?  I would like a pass with hook ups for the Auburn game. 

I know some other SEC schools have an official school sanctioned board that existing pass holders can place their pass for sale at face value.

There is parking available at Roadhog Park for non-members on the gravel lot with no hookups on football weekends. The fee is $150 for conference games.  Non-members are not permitted to use the electric sites during football weeks.  During other times of the year, non-members may use electric sites.

For more information, go to www.arkansasroadhogs.net

Just pray it does not rain. The gravel lot can get nasty. we had an RV there for Bama in 2012 when it rained all day. Tracked a crap load of mud  inside the RV and it was too muddy to set up tailgate gear outside under canopy.

Headed to the game this weekend.  Never been to Bryant-Denny.  Just driving over early that morning and leaving after.  Any must see/things to do?  I've heard the Bryant museum?  Any links or info greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  Go Hogs!  :razorback:

Lots of good info for visitors here: http://uagameday.com

Bryant Museum is a must-see. The strip (north side of the stadium) is where all the partying happens, tailgating will be happening most everywhere. I like to park at Central HS (south side of stadium, on 15th St), usually Boy Scouts or some group charging $20, but when the game is over, you're only a 10 minute walk from the stadium and you can avoid the traffic jam on 15th by leaving the rear side of the school parking lot.

Hope you enjoy your time Tuscaloosa (except for the outcome of the game).

I always liked the civil rights history stuff. Take a moment at the monument just up from the stadium. Get the barbecue nachos inside the stadium.

Friends outside the SEC who've seen the campus will tell you that's what a college campus is supposed to look like.

Take in the Quad, beautiful girls included (except for the freshman that answers to Carli...that's my daughter!)

Seriously, Tuscaloosa is not that great but the campus and BDS make up for it.

Only go to the original Dreamland off Jug Factory Road. The franchises are nothing special. But, you'll have a hard time getting in.

Have a safe trip and enjoy it until post game!  RTR

Get ready to have all those, 100000+ fans, shaking those red & white pom poms at the section where all/most of the Hog fans sit.  And, get ready to see the ghost of Coach Bryant watching the Bama players warm up, doing so while listening to Lynyrd Skynrd singing "Sweet Home Alabama", blaring out of some of the biggest speakers at any stadium.  And, then finally, if we happen to lose (and that is NOT a given) by either 1 or 100 points, all those "tiders" will stand up in unison, waving those same pom poms, and start their very irritating chant which goes roughly like this:  blah, blah blah, hey Arkansas we just beat the hell out of you.

One of the greatest places to see a football game ANYWHERE in America, and I love DWRS, but there really is no where like Tuscaloosa for college football.  Enjoy the trip; it's worth it...

The campus is nice the locals are polite (at least before the game), many of them will greet you and tell you they are grilling pork (they think that is just a hilarious joke - guess they don't know that you always eat the winner). Last time I was there was when we beat them after the rain delays, I think it was 2009. Some of the older fans were quite grumpy at the end and after the game, kept yelling at us and telling us to sit down. It was an awesome trip, we had painted Beat Bama and Roll Hogs on the sides and back window of the SUV, driving through some of the smaller villages in rural Alabama the natives looked at the car like if they had seen a UFO.

You will also get a lot of love when you stop to get gas etc from Auburn fans. (At least that week).

I went for the first time 2 years ago.  Dreamland was ok (I've been spoiled with all the BBQ places in Memphis.)  Had a good time there though chatting with Bammers.  Had a good time walking around campus and the stadium prior to the game too.  Everyone was polite and cordial, will definitely go back some day.

Although most Bama fans are cordial and friendly, don't be surprised when the typical Bama AHole fan you don't know comes up to you and makes a stab at the Hogs and/or our program.

Ok, now you are being crazy. This is the same state that had the rally on the Alabama state capitol steps claiming "Southern Lives Matter" which was a support rally for the Confederate Flag? Every trailer park in Tuscaloosa has a few Confederate Flags. I am in that area weekly.



And apparently, the demand is very high right now...

http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2015/07/confederate_flag_demand_has_al.html

Even the Alabama State Troopers wear the flag on their sleeve. But go ahead with your propaganda about Alabama being politically correct in all they do if it makes you feel better.

Dreamland BBQ

http://www.dreamlandbbq.com/default.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1

I have never tried Dreamland's sauce, but from what I gather it is a thin, tart, peppery sauce that is on the different side.  Maybe should perhaps be called a mop sauce.

Frankly, many people may feel that the BBQ places to go to in Alabama are Big Bob Gibson BBQ in Decatur, Alabama, and Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q in Bessemer, Alabama.

In 2007 we lost to Bama at bama by 3 in OT.  Later that year the win was vacated due to infractions of NCAA rules.  Bama's SEC record went from 6-2 to 2-6.  Their loss, our victory.

Edit...This is all I have to hold on too, so don't take it away from me.

Ate at dreamland during the summer. Had on a hog shirt. They customized my plate with a roll tide made out of sauce. When I got it I acted like I was about to puke and the waitress freaked. The manager came over, we all had a good laugh and I got a free dessert. Good food!

Depending on how you come into town - attempt to find and turn onto Campus Blvd East (McFarland will take you there).  Drive towards the campus (West) - when you see the RV parking (5th Avenue East), turn into the parking area -  there is a field behind the RV parking.  Bus stop #1 is directly across from the RV parking on Campus Blvd.  The bus will deliver you to the Quad, where you can exit and walk to the stadium.  Bama has the best bus transportation on campus that you will find anywhere - I highly recommend using it.  After the game - return to where you were dropped off and the bus will take you back to the bus stop.  Entering and exiting the campus is very easy from that parking spot.  After the game - you will probably get back onto McFarland to get to the highway that brought you into town.  Just relax - traffic is going to be a pain in the rear.   

Safe travels and I hope you enjoy the experience.

You must've been hammered drunk or something....cause I'm quite certain we haven't won at Alabama in over 10 years.

Wow you are right cause it was before our oldest was born, it must have been closer to 2003.

Ok, now you are being crazy. This is the same state that had the rally on the Alabama state capitol steps claiming "Southern Lives Matter" which was a support rally for the Confederate Flag? Every trailer park in Tuscaloosa has a few Confederate Flags. I am in that area weekly.



And apparently, the demand is very high right now...

Even the Alabama State Troopers wear the flag on their sleeve. But go ahead with your propaganda about Alabama being politically correct in all they do if it makes you feel better.


I hear their Klan rallies are top notch.

I say again for possible penetratration.^^^^^^^

Headed to the game this weekend.  Never been to Bryant-Denny.  Just driving over early that morning and leaving after.  Any must see/things to do?  I've heard the Bryant museum?  Any links or info greatly appreciated.  Thanks.  Go Hogs!  :razorback:

If you got to Dreamland be sure and order the BBQ ribs with white bread. Because that's all they serve, unless something has changed in the last 10 years.

Not disputing that dude. I am disputing this comment by your fellow Gump:
I'm quite sure you can find numerous confederate banners in any trailer park in Arkansas (I've been there also - spoken at statewide symposiums). I said that you won't find a confederate banner anywhere on campus or near the stadium, which is not true in Oxford. I stand by that statement. Bring back pix, if you see them. Outside the campus, Tuscaloosa is a gritty southern industrial town - tires, paper, other industries in the past and now car manufacturing. If you don't think you can find confederate banners in rural Arkansas, that's just being stupid. Personally, I'm from extreme North Alabama, and many of our forebears fought for the Union. I had two GGF serving in the Union army and one other who was a member of the Union League and had all - ALL - his property confiscated by the confederate state of Alabama, so, understandably I have no love for the banner. Get back to me, when you have pix of the banners around the stadium. Otherwise, it might be wise to drop the rhetoric without facts. BTW, did you know that over half the student body at Bama is from other states, and most of those from outside the South? Food for thought, if you can digest it...

I have never tried Dreamland's sauce, but from what I gather it is a thin, tart, peppery sauce that is on the different side.  Maybe should perhaps be called a mop sauce.

Frankly, many people may feel that the BBQ places to go to in Alabama are Big Bob Gibson BBQ in Decatur, Alabama, and Bob Sykes Bar-B-Q in Bessemer, Alabama.

I like Big Bob Gibson's much better than Dreamland. Don't even waste your time at a Dreamland franchise, like the one in Huntsville, AL. The one on Jug Road Tuscaloosa is good, but not as good as Big Bob's.
