I know Texas BBQ is good but Memphis does a pretty good job. Try Central BBQ when you are there. Pine wood? We use hickory.

How about a good ol New England clambake? Cooked with hot stones covered in seaweed, ingredients, more seaweed then covered by a canvas tarp in a hand dug pit. On the beach!

Ingredients include: Clams, lobster, corn on the cob, potatoes, fish, onion and linguica.

OMG, I'm drooling like a St. Bernard.

What type of clam do they use up there? Oddly shaped clam with what looks like a tongue hanging out :P

Throw a large rock on the beach at low tide and they spit water up. Dig there!

Beware, the sea gulls go into your basket when your not looking and steal them.

We have quahogs also. They are a hard shell clam (little necks, cherrystones)and good raw.

When the seagulls steal those they have to drop them on the rocks to break them open.

Pretty funny to watch especially when they are another 10 gulls waiting to steal that.

It's mud bug season (mini-lobsters for you northern folks!) in the Bayou City.   30# bag of live crawfish cost $2.35 per pound this past Saturday.  First time to use my "Christmas present" 80 quart pot and new double jet burner stand -->http://www.lacrawfish.com/Bayou-Classic-Cooking-Combo-3-80-Qt-Aluminum-P442.aspx  . 

Boiled the entire bag at once rather than small batches in my small turkey fryer pot.   Threw in 5 pounds of fresh caught Gulf brown shrimp for a couple of family members that don't like mud bugs.  Enjoyed some cold St. Arnold's beer during the boil.  Entire family of 14 (wife, three kids and their spouses, seven small grandchildren) had their fill !   There was just enough left-over bugs for the wife and I to enjoy a crawfish and cheese omelet last Sunday morning before going to Mass.

That's them, these were Hard Shell, DW ordered them thinking she was getting little necks, a bit chewy for me.

Yep, now you're talking. Heading to Lafayette, LA  for my yearly addiction fix.

The best lobsta roll I had is the homemade ones. Pretty simple and much cheaper. Wicked pissa!

That's the way it was made when I had them up there in 2016, garlic butter on the roll at one place and the bun was grilled, that was different but in a good way.
