Bubba-Q

"Bubba-Q” (also “Bubba Q” without the hyphen, or “bubba-q” without capitalization) is “barbecue” for a “Bubba” (Southern for “brother"). There is a “Bubba-Q” 1991 registered trademark from South Carolina, but the “Bubba-Q” term became more popular in the late 1990s.


Urban Dictionary
BUBBA Q
Southern combination of bubba and barbeque. A gathering of your best buddies (bubbas) and having a throw down barb-b-q. A mixture of massive amounts of beer, meat, cooking smoke, cigrettes, and unusually large men and women. After eating at the Bubba Q there will be redneck games that cause injury.
“Hey Shorty, we’re having a Bubba Q at Timbo’s Friday night. Bring a full cooler of Keystone Light.”
“Jessica got naked at Wolf’s Bubba Q last night.”
“It was all fun at the Bubba Q until the hunting jeep rolled over. My favorite shotgun fell in the river.”

I believe these BUBBAS are headed to MTSU (Murfreesboro) to a BUBBA-Q, but otherwise I don’t think Brad, mark (the lurker) or I have any trips planned. Ball’s in your court (or anyone else’s).

My only problem with Luling BBQ is this:

No corn.

Astroboy must have corn.  Especially with bubba-Q.

I’ve got some serious short timers syndrome here at work so I figured I’d stir some shit up and start a huge LJ-flamewar on what is most certainly a controversial topic in these parts: barbecue (or as many like to say Bubba-Q).
