Barbecue joints make some of the best banana puddings.
Why is that?
Is it because any place that understands low and slow is the best way to cook meat is also not going to get too hasty making pudding?
That is certainly the case at Ole Hickory BBQ near Huntsville.
From the hot custard poured on top of fresh-cut bananas and vanilla wafers to the toasted meringue that sits on top, this is banana pudding made the way grandmamma did it. No instant stuff here.
