Stranger Things – Southern Edition

Our friend Marleah and her pal Patrice started a podcast. And the second we heard the subject matter, we were in! If you love good storytelling and are looking for a funky, uniquely Southern hub that talks about some of our region’s own “stranger things,” then The Strange South Podcast is for you. One fan called it “a haunted chicken coop for your soul.”

Sample stories shared so far…

Sweet Snake Serenity (live from Podx in Nashville)

The Devil’s Horses

The Mysteries of Bear Creek Swamp

Dead Under the Bed

The Outlaw Mummy Hazel Farris

Please tell them the D’Avanzos sent ya. 😉

The best little rib joint in Alabama

For 10 years now, we’ve been chowing down on Cooter Brown’s Ribs — the best in the land IMO. It’s just plain luck that this rib shack is just down the road from our place. Friends coming over and no time to cook? Call Cooter’s. Honkey Hawg Memorial Day Weekend around the corner? Better order ribs early. Wet or dry (we say dry!), you may never bite into a better tasting rib. And p.s., writer Rick Bragg thinks so too. We could go on and on about their ribs, potato salad, Hillbilly Eggrolls, Cooter’s Cob and (my go-to) the Bourbon Peach Iced Tea, but you just need to get on over to Hwy 204 in Alabama and try for yourself. ‘Til then, read about our “neighbor” from AL.COM…  The story behind Cooter Brown’s Rib Shack, a classic Alabama BBQ joint.
