The Thicket is the ticket.. for a nice barbecue sandwich

Lizard's Thicket has a pretty mean little barbecue sandwich! I know you probably go there for the "meat and three" option, and I do too, but this is worth a try if you need a quick pulled pork fix without spending a lot of money.

I first tried it last week at the Airport Boulevard location, and I was surprised. I tried it again after church Sunday when me and Petunia, with seven teeth in her whole head, hit the drive-thru of the Knox Abbot location. This isn't the best way to go about it, because they put the sauce (mustard based) on the sandwich for you instead of in the little plastic cups, and they apply it more liberally than the governor applies tanning oil.

By the time I got home, the bottom bun had soaked through. It was "soppin' wet," as we say in the Bridges household. No worries. I took a piece of whole wheat bread and slapped it on there like a fresh Pampers diaper on Petunia. Gervais says, if a barbecue sandwich tastes this good with whole wheat bread involved, it's worth a try.

The Thicket is the best convergence of reptiles and 'cue since Wall of Voodoo sang the immortal lyrics, "I wish I was in Tijuana, eating barbecued iguana..." I loved that tape. Can anybody out there name the song?
