Written by David Montgomery   

“I’ve had enough and enough is too much!”

—Popeye the Sailor

“I’ve had all I can stands and I can’t stands no more!”

—Popeye the Sailor

Folks from the Old South just don't get it....you know, people from Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Florida, Virginia and North and South Carolina. Everyone knows that it is the Southwest that rules and Texas rules above them all. Here nobody (except for a few reprobates) eats hominy and grits and we would never equate pulled pork with BBQ for that would be blasphemy of the worst kind. Yes indeed, most Texans know better than that and we try to show others the way more perfectly. The problem is—folks from Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Florida, Virginia and North and South Carolina don't want to listen. I don't know why but they just don't.

The purpose of Big Dave's Facebook Page is to convert people (especially those from Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, Florida, Virginia and North and South Carolina) to a new and living way...one that is sans grits, hominy, and pulled pork. Because of recent despicable comments made on one of my pictures by David Dubya Brantley and Amber Ferrell Cat, I have adopted these two as special projects and hope to guide them to see the truth. They will then become the torchbearers of a new and enlightened era.

One way I can help them is to stop the mouths of false prophets like Joseph Theodore "Stinging" Nettles who spread another gospel which is not another. Yes, Nurse Nettles has crossed the line way too many times with me and I have just the method to hush him up for good. I have developed a series of sermons that I plan to deliver at Vidalia Old Onion Line Primitive Baptist Church that will bring the evils of grits, hominy and pulled pork to light. I shall then proceed to preach these sermons throughout the Southeast to proclaim the message of freedom and wisdom and give comfort to the afflicted. I have an extra special message on the evils of boiled peanuts that I will use when in South Georgia. I plan to deliver this sermon in a New York accent which really ought to touch the people's hearts.

Kind friends, it may be that I shall be martyred in this just cause, but I am not afraid for I have learned that “All things work together for good when brisket is served.”

Let the Reformation begin!

I love hominy....I guess that makes me an outcast of the north and the southwest. Probably why I need to live in GA. :)

Blasphemy against grits . . . as my yankee friend called them, "harmony grits!" That's the way we've always done it, and that's the way it will stay here in Georgia! If you weren't my little brother, I'd be compelled to break fellowship with you!

My little Phoebe (8 months old) already like grits....no pulled pork until she has teeth though. But the rest of my family loves pulled pork. does that mean you are going to make me leave Texas? LOL

Hey folks, I don't know what part of Texas our beloved David refers to, but I have live in 3 different areas of Texas and we all eat hominy. I am not sure what his problem is but he needs to leave Texas out of is his "fear of food"..

ha I was born there yes. but only because they moved the line on the map.. my dad, sister, husband and all his family are born Texans.. they all eat hominy.. and love it.. Texans rise and be counted...

Sally, you just married a Georgian...the Honeymoon hasn't worn off yet. You are very adorable I thank you so much for remaining my big sister. Wonder what Lori's gonna say???

Gregg Scott

Oh David...I think you're outnumbered on this one...Hominy and grits is some goooood eatin and although it can't compare to City Market in Luling's beef brisket, pulled pork ranks right up there. What I can't understand are these folks who decided it would be a good idea to put slaw on a pulled pork sandwich. Now that's just gross...
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
Gregg that is blasphemy!! Please check your comments again. I don't think you really meant what you just wrote.

Doubt Lori has a clue about grits . . . she was born in yankee land, and unlike her wiser, older sister, she didn't realize that the stork made a bad drop that needed to be corrected asap. She's still "up thar."
 
Danielle Cunningham
Danielle Cunningham
Oh Bro. David you are fighting a losing battle. Every one knows that grits and pulled pork are the best ever just not together. Next you are going to be saying white sause isn't real BBQ sause. We need an intervention here.
 
Rosanna Farmer Stapp
Rosanna Farmer Stapp
Being a former yankee I probably shouldn't put in my two cents but I have lived in Texas the last 17 years. I have to agree with David. Grits and hominy is not good eating.
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
White sauce is not BBQ sauce. It is an abomination. Danielle, how could you even think such?
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
I always did like you, Rosanna.

Yikes Big D! Looks like you lost this battle before it was really started, huh? Po' pitiful you...

For all of you on the tasty side of this argument, please do join us this weekend at Macclenny PBC's annual meeting where we will gather together for a delightful BBQ meal Saturday night before services. And by BBQ, I obviously mean the absolute finest Boston Butts you could possibly sink your teeth into.

ok I have to agree with David on the white sauce..that is not real Bar B Q anything..

But...if you put the white sauce on the grits with some shrimp. Slobber, drip, drool.
 
Amber Gowens Ferrell

Awwwww, shrimp and grits! Now, let me wipe the drool off the keyboard.
 
Sally Ownby Chapman

Yum! Shrimp n grits! Georgia wild shrimp, no doubt. Have you even tried it, Brother David? shrimp n grits, fried shrimp, broiled shrimp, shrimp creole, sauteed shrimp . . . has a familiar ring to it!
 
Jeb Owen
Jeb Owen
That was the best preaching I have ever heard you do Bro. David. Amen! When you BOIL pork and throw some sauce on it that don't make BBQ. Where's the Beef?
 
Chris Crouse
Chris Crouse
Big Dave I agree with you except for hominy, I do like it. However, on the rest, preach it and I'll give the exception and turn out my hearing aid on the hominy part.

Where do I send a check to help you in your righteous labors? Also, where is your burial plot in case you're martyred for the cause?

sorry but i still like grits and hominy! lol

Have mercy Maud!! I take ONE lunch break and the whole world goes crazy!! With the exception of Brothers Jeb and Chris (sort of), everyone has gone off their rockers. I personally think that Sisters Amber and Sally need counseling and that Sis Antoinette has stewarded too many flights (all that thin air). Bro Joe is beyond help but that's no surprise. Samantha is my son's girlfriend and she and I are fixing to have a little talk. Sister Amy is forgiven because Phoebe is so daggum cute.

But, I am NOT throwing in the towel...My face is set like a flint...

I can't stand grits, they are disgusting, I have never had hominy, and I have never even wanted to try it, they don't look very appealing.
 
Chris Crouse
Chris Crouse
One word of caution, Elder Montgomery. If you keep harping on hominy, grits and pork masquerading as BBQ, you're setting yourself up for one god-awful meal! Some sinister saint is gonna fix you supper with nothing but grits, hominy and pulled, or perhaps pushed pork. Just make sure it ain't when I'm with you! And your appetizer may be boiled peanuts, yuck and double yuck.
 
David W. Brantley
David W. Brantley
LOL!!! I am crying after reading that...with laughter. Here in the real world (the SOUTH) we eat CHOPPED PORK, aka BBQ. My 7 month old already likes Grits...must be good! Next time you're over this way Brother, remind me to take you to the restaurant that only serves Fish and Grits. Or maybe we'll grab some good bbq ribs...baby back pork ribs that is!
 
Rick Leasure
Rick Leasure
I'll side with David on the hominy issue.
 
David W. Brantley
David W. Brantley
Oh, and about the slaw on BBQ...that came from North Carolina, might as well add them to your list too!
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
You're right, DWB....NC is on the list. As for that restaurant, I'll take the fish and you can have the grits. Seems like you deep Southerners will eat grits with anything. I suppose that's why we lost the War Between the States...Yankees knew better.
 
Sally Ownby Chapman
Sally Ownby Chapman
No slaw on bbq? Now them's fightin' words. Maybe we do need counseling. Sister Amber, ya reckon we can get a discount for two on distance counseling?
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
Certainly you can, especially since I'm the guy whose gonna be doing the counseling!
 
Amber Gowens Ferrell
Amber Gowens Ferrell
Well Sista Sally, I think if both of us are going to "need" counseling, we could very well double team him and take over the sessions. I'll bring the rope...you bring the grits.

Mmmmm, slaw on a BBQ sandwich is the only way to go. Here's another...cheese grits mixed with scrambled eggs and slapped on a biscuit. Now, that's talkin'.
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
Please Amber...I just ate! ugh!
 
Sally Ownby Chapman

Together, we'll have him converted in no time . . . mutiny in the making, Captain Dave!

OK, Br. David, I can no longer hold back....

1) Allman's BBQ, Fredericksburg (VIRGINIA). You can get your PORK BBQ either pulled OR minced. Fantastic place. www.allmansbarbeque.com. We ate there the day before Emily graduated, and I already need to go back to get more sauce, which works well on beef AND pork.
2) The Beach Bully BBQ Restaurant. ... Hint, the word BULL is in the name--they offer both beef and pork BBQ. Does that make you happy? Eating there would make you happy!! www.beachbully.com. This one is located right here in VA Beach. Today I'm going there to pick up some CHICKEN BBQ for Emily's graduation party. Yep, CHICKEN BBQ.
 
Julie Snyder
Julie Snyder
I will confess, though, that I need so much butter & sugar on my grits that I don't eat them. Exception: SHRIMP AND GRITS.
 
Amber Gowens Ferrell
Amber Gowens Ferrell
Dag-nabbit! All this talk of grits had me salivating something fierce, so I made some shrimp-n-grits for dinner last night. Wouldn't you know that the kiddos that were raised on grits as babies turned their noses up to it this time around?? The two who can talk described it as being "too lumpy" and the one who couldn't talk just spit each and every bite right back at me.

Okay now...jig's up! Who switched my kids?
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
Your kids have finally developed taste buds? character? brains? all three?

I think it's wonderful that you confessed this, Amber and it proves that my plan is working. I was losing my faith a little, especially when Samantha Billiams and Julie Snidely Whiplash added insult to injury at the end. Now I know that my labor is not in vain and it is well with my soul.

Long live the Reformation!!!!

OK - I'll take the High Road: I shall be as Brother Paul - (I Cor 9:20) When I am in Texas, 'I shall become as' a Texan and eat brisket. When I return thence from 'egypt' I shall become again as a Georgian and eat BBQ and cheese grits. ... Hopefully, by so doing, I shall become fatter and happier than Bro. David, who - if at my Mama's house shall eat grits or go hungry.
 
Julie Snyder

Br. David, I went to Beach Bully BBQ today and had BEEF Brisket BBQ w/ mahogany sauce in your honor. BEEF. Then I picked up the chicken BBQ for our party. :D

Bro. Rodney, you sure were chowing down that beef brisket at our meeting last year with a relish. I heard no complaints your way.

HEY! shrimp n grits are GOOD! man....its like shrimp scampi, PLUS! You are living toooooo close to the Mason-Dixon line, Julie!!

DM, boiled peanuts are weird, no doubt about it. They are much better if you call them by their proper name, GOOBER PEAS. And Vidalias are da bomb, baby. Best onions on the planet! ( I do miss Texas 1016's when Vidalia season is over, tho.)

Amber Ferrell Cat. ROFLOLOL!!!! DM, you may be gettin old, but you will never change. Thanks for the laughs!!
 
(You're welcome--DM)

Mmmm...shrimp and grits, time for a trip back to the Ferrells! I say we take a big 'ol hog, drive out to Texas, cook it, pull it, chop it, and eat all day!
 
Reggie Medlin
Reggie Medlin
Somebody help them people in Texas! They're good people, just need to be lead in the right direction! And that direction is: Pork BBQ, vinegar based sauce, red slaw, hush puppies, and nanner puddin! That Montgomery fella is headed down the wrong path!! LOL!
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
No, Bro Reggie, I've BEEN on the right path for many years...I'm just trying to show you "Suthunuhs" the right way to go.

I'm getting ready to say something here and I want y'all to listen....Stop wasting good shrimp on yucky, terrible grits! It's a affornt to the wonderful food that shrimp is..Our Lord gave us shrimp to be enjoyed and I cannot believe that anyone in their right mind would ever want to mix the two. Grits is an invention of man and is an abomination to good eating...mixing grits with shrimp is like mixing grace with works.

Shrimp=Grace
Grits=Works


As oil and water do not mix so does grace and works. And as grace and works do not mix so does shrmip and grits. Now, let's all be Grace Baptists and not Grits Baptists and sweet will be the fellowship that ensues. We can do this y'all. I can help you but you've got to help me help you...OK? Help me help you!
 
Reggie Medlin
Reggie Medlin
Brother, you Texans are a seriously mislead bunch of good people! Now don't get me wrong, there are some GREAT restaurants in Texas. Pappas Brothers know fish, TexMex, Italian, and Steaks. But, those Greeks KNOW the business!

Now as for that stuff ya'll call BBQ, I hope you can come up this way soon and let me educate your untrained palate with some prime NC "Q." I had some stuff one time near Dallas they called "ribs" and it was these great BIG BONES with a little meat on them and a bunch of sauce? slathered on them. BEEF ribs! Now that ain't right!

Now brisket, that's another matter if it's smoked slowly. Sliced thinly on a good bun, it'll pass. I truly hope that you will be shown the light and come to the realization of the TRUTH about BBQ. We'll do all we can up here to help you out, even down to sending you some! ...

As for shrimp and grits, remember, we "po folks" up this way and were during the "War of Northern Agression!" We learned to eat what we had.
 
David W. Brantley
David W. Brantley
Bro DM, thank you for your wonderful example, and for helping me. I am very grateful for the Shrimp (Grace) our Lord hath given us...for we are his workmanship, created in Christ unto good works, which God had ordained we walk in...So, I guess that means, if we're blessed to have shrimp (Grace) we should eat good grits (works)...OK? Grits and eggs, fish and grits, grits and pork sausage!

Thank you for helping me help you...er...you helping us.
 
Reggie Medlin
Reggie Medlin
AMEN Brother David! Grits to you and yours!!
 
Danielle Cunningham

Faith without works is dead. Therefore it's a bland and sad meal without grits. -Danielle

Ephesians 2:11 - Not to boast of Grits. Romans 9 - It's not by works or will of man but the grace of God. Shrimp is fine just by itself. Not to help DM out but, if you are going to get scriptural here... If we make Grits work an shrimp grace then we are going to have a real mess with time vs eternal salvation. Can you enlighten us Bro?
 
David W. Brantley
David W. Brantley
Bro Reggie, we need to get him up to Lexington, NC one day, that should cure him. I also went to a so-called bbq place outside of Dallas one time, still not sure what they gave me. Now, I did find some good q just outside of Austin, but it was Pork ribs!
 
Reggie Medlin
Reggie Medlin
Good to know you WERE able to find some "Pig" in Texas! Lexington is OK, but we've got a Brother up here who cooks every year the Friday after Thanksgiving for as many Old Baptists and friends as want to come. Cooks about 30-40 hams over hickory coals. Now THAT's "Q!" If he got a bite of that, he'd be a convert!
 
Reggie Medlin
Reggie Medlin
Amber, Samantha and Danielle are women wise beyond their years! Listen to them Brother, it's NOT too late!!
 
David Montgomery

OK, now y'all really torqued me off!!!! I'll get yall back. the noive of you guys, using my logic against me! just wait!
 
Reggie Medlin

Surrender now, Brother Dave before we bring ALL our strenths to bear!! These "Q" wars can get rough!! LOL!
 
Amber Gowens Ferrell
Amber Gowens Ferrell
Amen, Brother D. Dubya Brantley. And yes, we need to have another Brantley/Ferrell get-together. Your boys need to reteach my chitlens how to like grits again. :)

We passed by 3 boiled peanut stands on the way home from church today. Mmmmmm-Mmmmmmm, that's good eats right there.
 
David Montgomery
Laugh it up Ms Amburr Groanings Ferris Wheel...my plan is get all of you back. As to when it will happen, I don't know, but I will have vengeance on you guys.

The following people need to be afraid, be very afraid...

...are you afraid yet??
 
Reggie Medlin
Reggie Medlin
I'm afraid that all you Texas folks will ever experience is those big rib bones you call BBQ! Seriously, Brother Dave, if you'll arrange a trip up this way, I'll see to it that you are fed some of NC's finest. We CAN resolve this peacefully! However, if you persist, Br. D.W. and I will persevere for your salvation from TQ!
 
Vernon Johnson
Vernon Johnson
I have eaten some of NC finest and it ain't bar-b-q. Long live Texas BBQ. I hate to think that I am siding with David on something, but at least this once he is right. Texas BBQ reigns. Anyone who has eaten Elder Townsend Cassell's bbq will never want NC bbq after that.
If faith without works is dead, so bbq without Texas beef is dead also...I saw some strange looking food in Kenya, but even that looked a lot better than grits.

Come to Texas and we will give you some Tex-Mex and you will never want to leave. We'll even serve it to you for breakfast and you will be begging for more. After eating it, you will never want grits again for breakfast.
 
David Montgomery
David Montgomery
Amen and amen, Brother Vernon!
