Great BBQ and Goodbye…

Today is our last full day in the Savannah area.  Actually, yesterday should have been our last day, but we decided to stay over an extra day to eat at a place we heard about on the radio,  Wiley’s Championship BBQ.



 While driving around last Saturday, we were listening to a radio show about BBQ and they were taking to a guy named Wiley McCrary.

He talked about traveling around the country and competing on the Championship BBQ circuit.

I didn’t realize there WAS a Championship BBQ circuit.

But apparently there is a large group of people that compete in contests for money and prizes all over the country, just like golf or tennis.

And Wiley McCrary was one of the top guys in the country. And now he has a small BBQ place just outside Savannah. It only has about 8 tables, but he does a lot of takeout business and party catering.

And the BBQ was some of the best we’ve ever had.  Jan had the pulled portk platter with potato salad and BBQ beans, and I had the rib platter with BBQ beans and sweet potato casserole, and then we shared the different dishes.

For dessert we shared the Bread Pudding with Pecan Praline Bourbon Sauce.  And let me tell you, there was definitely bourbon in the bourbon sauce.

All in all, another great meal here in Savannah.

Tomorrow we head about 85 miles north to an RV park just outside Charleston, SC.   We’ll be there for 3 or 4 days checking the place out.
