Miss Myra’s

Who says women don’t make great pit masters?
Not Renee Wheat of Miss Myra’s BBQ in Birmingham, Alabama.
The sauce is white (a mixture of mayonnaise and vinegar in the style of Big Bob Gibson’s in Decatur, Alabama). The chicken comes smoked to the color of burnished mahogany. Put them together and you get some of the best barbecued bird in the South.
You may remember reading about Miss Myra’s in BBQ USA. The restaurant inspired my smoked chicken stuffed deviled eggs.
