I fixed your pulled pork barbecue yesterday! 
It tastes just like the stuff I remember when 
I traveled through Virginia and North Carolina 
years ago. 

  Thanks for bringing back great memories :0)

Dear Willie:

I just received your cookbook.  It arrived at my
office AS I WAS TALKING to a friend about cooking! 
I opened the package immediately; and the result was
that my friend will be ordering a couple of these 
for her son and herself.

For me............. my comment to you is "FABULOUS"! 
Reading through the book is very much like revisiting 
my grandmother's kitchen!  She has been gone now for 
44 years; but she's alive again....... TODAY
............ thanks to your cookbook.

Thank you!  Thank you, again!

I was really  suprised to see you published your pork barbecue recipe right in your cookbook.  So many people won't share their with anybody.  I cooked half a pig overnight, following your instructions exactly.  It turned out perfect!  I can see myself making a little extra money selling bbq meals from my house.

Thanks again man.

Here's what a few folks had to say about the recipes:

"Willie,  Got your cookbook in the mail yesterday and cooked
your coconut pie and barbecued baby back ribs for 
some friends we had over today.  Needless to say, there were NO leftovers.

Thanks for such great recipes.

I tried your deep fried turkey recipe and my family
really loved it.  The turkey turned out perfect. So,
I decided to take one in to try on my office staff.
The local Winn Dixie was running a special on turkeys
at  29 cents per pound and I already had the peanut
oil, so I figured,what did I have to loose.  I also
baked a loaf of bread to go with the turkey.

I sent out an email to everyone in my department
announcing there was deep fried turkey and fresh
baked bread in the break room.  THE TURKEY AND
MINUTES! I had expected to end up taking some
leftovers back home. 

During the course of the day I had countless people
ask me for my recipe.  Several people also offerd to
pay me to deep fry a turkey for them.  I sent several
to your website to get your cook book.  I also agreed
to do several turkeys and will make a nice little 
profit at my newfound cooking skills.

Thanks Willie,
Don Caldwell - Raleigh, N.C. "


I tried your greens (collards) last night and 
they're exquisite!

"Mr. Crawford,

I fixed your pinto beans and hamhocks for my family
last night.  My family loved them.  The kids even
had some of the leftovers for breakfast.  Keep
up the great work.

Vivian W."


Your baby back ribs were the hit of our family
reunion.  YOU DA MAN!

Bobby Jones - Mullins, S.C."

I have recently visited with my Grandmother
who is 88 yrs. old, and we plan to use many of the recipes from this site for Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Thank you so much
