If I was put on death row and was allotted one last meal I know what it would be.
Hell, I even know where to get it from.
That meal is BBQ, that place is the Black Eyed Pig in Naples, Florida.
I know what you are thinking. Logan, why would you be on death row? Well, it might be from someone trying to take this delectable barbecue goodness away from me.
No one takes my meats!
Arriving at this joint, you are met with joyful faces ready to serve you what is arguably the best BBQ in the Southwest Florida area.
Sweet tea, beer, smoked meats? This is everybody’s vision of heaven, unless you are vegan.
The sampler is the best bet, as you get four different choices of meat, two sides, and a jalapeño cornbread muffin or Texas toast; but stick with the cornbread.
The pulled pork is so juicy and succulent that there is no need for any sauce. The brisket, with a nice crusty bark on the outside, breaks apart with the slightest touch. The sausage is just the right balance of sweet and spicy.
Lastly, any side is fine, they are all amazing (get the baked beans and toss in some pulled pork).
Further selections of sides include bbq restaurant basics like: slaw, potato salad, collard greens and much more.
Appetizers, sandwiches, ribs and wings. These items are also on the list of grub to try, the fried okra is spectacular.
Wash it all down your gullet with cold beer or sweet tea and let the food coma hit you. I’m ready, If this is it, then I will die happy and full.
Just give me a to-go bag before I make the journey to the great beyond. I may get hungry for some pork.
