More Bama BBQ!!

I travel a lot for work and happily, I travel almost exclusively in the South.  You can't beat the people , the weather, the history and of the food.  Southern cooking is just different.  It puts some meat on your bones and packs such amazing flavor.  I am in the South again today.  I am in Crimson Tide country (which I just tolerate because they have good BBQ!)  I went to a place today called Saw's BBQ.  It was recommended to me by some customers of mine.  I of course had to try it!

The place is small and looks just like an old BBQ joint, even though it is only 4 years old.  The ambience is awesome.  The food is better.  I had smoked chicken with a white sauce.  Amazing. Now if the sauce had not been on there, it wouldn't have been as good but it was on there so it rocked!  The rib I had was perfectly cooked.  Not too long but perfectly moist and tender.  The pulled pork was super tender.  Again, as usual in the deep South, pulled pork has to have a good sauce on it and this did.  It was a sauce that was a blend of Carolina  and Bama Q sauce.  Very tasty.  I of course tried their sausage.  It was just ok.  It tasted too much like breakfast sausage.  It was good but I would have it with breakfast, not lunch.

Overall, I have to say I loved this place.  Some of the better BBQ I have had outside of the Lone Star State in quite a while.  If you are in Birmingham, give it a try.  You won't be sorry!


  1. Can I just say what a comfort to discover somebody that truly understands what they are talking about over the internet.
    You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    A lot more people need to look at this and understand this side of the story.
    I was surprised you aren't more popular because you most certainly have the gift.
