Hello, I've found the discussion of Bar-B-Q very interesting, and by the way I am Tucker's friend Marshall (originally from southeast Texas) that uses the take out route at Bodacious. I like all the meats but probably prefer the chopped pork, and I certainly do not want to compete with Lee and Tucker for the brisket. I really enjoy their style of Bar-B-Q, and yes there are many styles depending upon which part of the USA or Mexico you are visiting. My wife and I have enjoyed eating Bar-B-Q in many states and have enjoyed many of the different styles. Interestingly, I have friends from Texas that do not consider the Carolina style with the vinegary taste to be real Bar-B-Q, however, we also like that style.
To be good in my opinion, Bar-B-Q must have a good smoked taste, even without sauce, other wise it is too much like roast with sauce on top. The mesquite wood used at Bodacious with the smoker provides a good taste to all the meats I've tried, and by the way I've tried them all.
Sauces like salsa vary regionally. We all have our preferences, and I like the sauce at Bodacious. Some of the sauces from Louisiana can be very hot and might not go over well in Montana. A friend of mine in western Louisiana was in charge of food (Bar-B-Q) at an experiment station field day. He was concerned about having enough food if a larger crowd showed up. The caterer said not to worry, if more people came they would just add a little more 'spice' to the sauce and the folks would eat less, and there would be plenty to go around.
I've rambled enough and must close for now. Just remember, Bar-B-Q is pretty good soul food, so relax and enjoy.
