A Good Night For Carryout

Yesterday I felt the need to hit the malls and Target in Little Rock. I mean they must have fall clothes out by now.I wasn't disappointed in the least....lots and lots of cute fall pants and blouses...No, I didn't buy any jeggins, although they were in every store!!After a full day of running, I didn't want to cook supper but I knew I would be passing a popular BBQ place on the way home...yes, carryout will work!





Ribs, slaw and potato salad to go please..







You might have seen The Mean Pig BBQ featured on Man vs Food recently. "Adam attempts to devour a super spicy pulled pork sandwich known as the Shut-Up Juice Challenge". Mean pig has four flavors of sauce; mild, medium, hot and shut-up!!! We had mild/ha
Adam completed the challenge by drinking milk (yuck) along with the shut-up juice, but he was sweating! And for all of his suffering he won "A T-Shirt"!



I told the owner I saw the show recently and he said he can always tell when it has been on based on the number of calls he receives for orders. He has an order ready to ship to Scotland and one to the UK....wow. I asked him how he ships food that far. He freezes it and packs it in dry ice! It reminded me of the Mash episode when Hawkeye was trying to order ribs from Adam's Rib in Chicago...it was so funny!

Mean Pig is close to the Jacksonville Air Base and many of his customers are in the military. He said when they get transferred they always take food with them...hence the orders from other countries.

If you are ever in the Little Rock area, check out The Mean Pig for some finger licking good BBQ.

Oh, those look finger lickin' good! I think after shopping, always calls for eating out! You know, when shopping, you work up your appetite, it's hard work, I know you know!
