Larry VaughnThis corn is so delicious with barbecue ribs or brisket!  Most of Texas’s best barbecue restaurants serve this style corn with coleslaw, potato salad and baked beans.  Add a few slices of bread, pickles, onions, and hot sauce; and you have a feast!  You can even add in some bacon crumbles as shown above. Don’t forget to grab a bundle of napkins, because you’re going to need them!
