The Knight and I are both big fans of barbeque. We’ve both been hearing that we really needed to try the place in Gordonsville. He and his assistant finally got there last week, and he liked it so well we went to The Barbeque Exchange Friday night too.
We both got the pulled pork with two sides. The pork was tender and tasty. The Knight added the Hog Fire sauce, but I went with the Carolina sauce. Yum. He got macaroni salad, baked beans and cornbread. I got macaroni salad, a brocoli salad I don’t see on the menu but everyone we’ve talked to seems to think it’s a regular item, and when I couldn’t decide between the cornbread and the pumpkin muffin, the gal behind the counter gave me both!
It’s rare that I do a photo-less post, but you need to wander out of your way to try the Barbeque Exchange. I also have it on good authority that I need to try their bacon brownie. (Say what?!)
And if you’re a local, I do require more pumpkin muffin and brocoli salad if you’re coming this way. It’s all good, but those two items are remarkably so.
The Knight describes the cornbread as corn-poundcake. It is THICK, sweet and not too dry. How do you like your cornbread? Personally, I like it a little gritty with real corn included, but I want it sweet enough and moist enough that I don’t reach for the butter…
