+1 They are both down on the south side. Dreamland
is KNOWN for their ribs. For the longest time at the origional location the only question you were asked was 1/2 or full slab. They are served with sauce and a loaf of white bread.
If you go to the J Clyde you can tell them that some Free the Hops
people sent you there. They were REALLY big supporters in getting the abv limits raised in Alabama. We owe a lot to them. They even let one of my homebrew clubs hold meetings there, we can even bring our own beer. They also always get invited to our parties.
Another BBQ place I really like is Miss Myras, 3278 Cahaba Heights Road, Cahaba Heights, AL 35243, they dont have a website. Its not too far from where you will be. They have some of the best white sauce in the city. White sauce is mayo, vinegar, pepper, and lemon juice. Its strictly a North Alabama thing. It was started at Big Bob Gibson's BBQ
in Huntsville, if I remember correctly. Thats the only place that I know in Huntsville, but I dont care to know another.
Also if you want to know a little about the beer culture in Alabama click on the link in my signature and watch the video. We are working on changing this, but if you go to a chain place its going to be BMC with little else.
