From Southern Living 1981. A person can only have so many magazines around the house before you get that over-run feeling. I'm cleaning out my stacks and posting the recipes that I've tried and wish to keep here.

Lovely recipe - might make the rub doubled next time to use as a dip too - will make again, but Fried Green 'Maters will always have my heart! PAC orphanage 2009
