Just come on down. I'll take you to a rattlesnake roundup for some chili and some Texas beer. You'll be softened up in no time.

Wow, I just noticed that last post took me to the third page of this thread. I wonder what the record is for the longest new member thread. As a bonus, this one doesn't even supply useful information.

If you give me chili and beer then maybe we'll show you some special treatment after we take your cute little state over. So i'm assuming you've tried this rattlesnake chilie? how is it?

I have, but it was in Louisianna. Cajuns can make anything taste good - just put in the rite spice.

Little? LITTLE? You saw the map above, right?

It tastes like chicken (that was too easy)

Back about my freshman year of college, I had a high school buddy who took a job at a rattlesnake "market" (I'm not even sure what to call it). They'd drive all over the state and pay folks per pound for live rattlesnakes. They'd bring 'em back to the home office (aka the company owner's back yard) then get medieval on those snakes. They'd milk the venom and sell that to some medical research place, sell the skins to a bootmaker, the rattles to a jewelry maker, and the meat to some specialty meat market.

Over Christmas break he took me along on a run down south to the San Isidro area to pick up a load of snakes some kid had caught. On the way back we were going to drive within a mile of my grandparents' house, so I talked him into stopping to surprise them. Now, historically, my grandmother had served as a "straight man" for my jokes. When I told her we had a load of rattlesnakes in the back of the van, she decided now was the time not to believe me. So, we invited her out to see them. When my buddy opened the box, I think she jumped 10 feet in the air and landed behind my grandfather.

To this day, she's decided it's safer just to be my "straight man."

I haven't had good Cajun food in a while. Now you made me hungry. I never would have thought of them cooking rattlesnake. I'd figure water moccasins are more likely in that corner of the world.

What's fun is to go to the Beaumont/Port Arthur area and find some restaurant that does this Tex-Mex/Cajun combo food. Now that's tasty.

And now I'm hungry for Tex-Mex too, 007. You got it made in San Antonio in that area. I can find some decent Tex-Mex in Dallas, but to get the really good stuff you've got to go to San Antonio or parts south.

Don't make the mistake of having Mexican food in South Carolina though. I did that last year and regretted it.

With the recent influx of Migrant Workers to the New Orleans area, we are having a great time with finding good places to eat Mexican.

So, is there any kind of food native to the Carolina Alliance homeland you can brag about? Or do you get all your calories through beer?

We have alot of good low country cuisine if you're into that, fairly similar to many coastal states. Last time i was in Charleston i had eggs benedict with crab cakes, fried green tomatoes, cajun popcorn (fried crawfish) and shrimp and grits. I really dont like seafood but when in rome..... (or Charleston as the case may be). Anyway, nothing extremely unique that i am aware of but we have some good eats here in SC! Soul food

We have relatives in SC. As a kid our family visited them for a couple weeks every other year. I remember them always trying to get me to eat those grits. I also remember my cousins always addressing their mom and dad with "yes sir" and "yes maam".

Grits isn't a South Carolina thing. I eat grits a couple times a week in New Orleans.

Grits is just a southern thing in general, most yank's hate 'em. And i was brought up to say "sir" and ma'am''. I say ma'am to the 16 year old girl behind the fast food counter. It has nothing to do with age down here, its just good manners. Can anyone from SC think of any food thats fairly unique to the area?

I grew up on grits, gumbo, po-boys, jambalaya, Étouffée, catfish, crawdads, shrimp, and hushpuppies. Those and my family are the only things I miss about being in New Orleans.

I love seafood. I grew up on the Gulf Coast, so I learned what fresh (never frozen) seafood tasted like. Once I moved inland, I found myself quite disappointed in most seafood. I guess I was just spoiled as a child.

(hey, nd, did you finally sober up enough to remember where Charleston (and Ft. Sumter) are? )

Soul food is something I can get behind. Any vegetable tastes better slathered in bacon grease. When I was growing up, I thought all vegetables were supposed to taste like bacon.

In South Texas, I wouldn't say I grew up on grits, but I had 'em on occasion. I didn't consider them strange. Whenever I'm back down south visiting my folks, I insist we go out to a Mexican restaurant for breakfast. I miss the huevos rancheros, migas, chorizo, nopalitos, and refried beans and tortillas with breakfast. I also miss good taquitos (aka breakfast tacos, breakfast burritos in different regions (even San Antonio and Corpus Christi name them differently)).

I "yes ma'am" my 7 year old daughter to set a good example.

I'm impressed not only do you know where all those accent-y things go, but you can do it on vBulletin! Oh, and YUM to that list too. Haven't found a good Cajun place in Dallas :-(

Re your Austin traffic rant: I wish I remembered the name of the place, but about 10 years ago up on the NW side of Austin, in Cedar Park there was a little Cajun restaurant that was excellent. It was run by a family who had just moved there from New Orleans.

Sea food is not something i usually eat but i can stand certain things.... and sometimes just have to eat it cause i have the chance (when its fresh)

As far as i can tell Charleston is somewhere in SC, but i'm still convinced that Ft. Sumpter is overseas somewhere.....

I totally agree about the vegatable thing. My mom always made green beans in a big pot with a ham bone and about a pound of choped up ham. Pork and beans... ham cooked in with the collards.... ham cooked in with the black eyed peas.... it seems like in the south all vegies are cooked with ham, and i love it! There is nothing like food from teh south to make your heart hurt. My family is Irish and German in heritage. We came over to New York just like everyone else, then immediately moved down south. I dont think any member of our extended family, on my mom or dads side has ever lived up north for at least a century. Needless to say we have southern cooking down to an exact science. I have had some good food up north but nothing like down here. I think maybe we have found some common ground sawdust. Dont get me wrong, i still hate you since your from texas.... but you're alright

My dad's become the unofficial family historian lately. If you trace one branch of our family back 6 or so generations, they come from South Carolina. Who knows, you and I could be distant cousins. But that would mean you have ties to the Lone Star State. Let the denial and/or self-loathing begin...
