At the Top Hat Barbecue, Blount Springs, Alabama!
For over 40 years, the Top Hat Barbecue has been the place to go for pulled pork barbecue slow cooked over an open flame. The restaurant is located on U.S. Highway 31, just about six miles North of the exit 287 on I-65.
Seen here, large plate pulled pork barbecue with sauce, potato salad, baked beans, coleslaw & sweet iced tea. With generous tip, ~$20.
Typically, I think the plate would probably have included two side dishes.
I thought the bill was wee bit on the pricey side, but I knew what I wanted, and I specifically requested those three traditional side items to sample their fare. Further, having just driven about five consecutive hours, and not having eaten in 18 hours, I was hungry, and since I was only about 30 minutes away from my destination, I really didn't care.
While fried pies were typically available, there were none available this time, because the lady who prepares them suffered a death in the family, and was absent from work.

This is an area in Blount Springs along County Highway 5. The water in this stream actually comes from the falls at the Blount Springs community which I have posted a shot of earlier in my stream.
I was out shooting this afternoon with my father.

My wife and I were out riding around late Sunday to scout locations for getting sunset shots. We did not find any, but she took me to this spot to get this wonderful photo. This area sits between some mountains in the country, so with the sun setting, the majority of the light had left us for the evening. That is why the light level is slightly low. I think it gives it a very nice feel. Did I mention that it was cold? 32 degrees... wind chill 25.
