Back in Alabama for a few days, so I hit up Jim 'N Nick's Bar-B-Q in Jasper for lunch earlier this week. I got to visit with their GM, Mark Kibler, for most of my lunch. Knowing I'm out in Texas, he wanted me to try their brisket. Not many places in Alabama serve brisket - though more and more are starting to - but theirs is worth a taste. You probably won't be able to tell from the picture I took with my phone, but it had a nice smoke ring, and the fat was pretty well rendered. It didn't need the sauce he brought out with it, but I used some of it anyway, b/c it was dang good. Mark is a ridiculously nice guy and a fellow cigar smoker, to boot. I'll be paying him (and his brisket) another visit next time I'm home.
