Batman has Robin like peanut butter has jelly like barbeque has sides. It’s true – no plate of BBQ can really be considered complete without a generous supply of sides. But, we’re not talking about just any side dishes. There are certain staple side dishes that have long been associated with barbeque because they complement each other so well, and we break them down here.

Hush Puppies
Hush puppies are a popular side dish with BBQ, especially in North Carolina. These delicious little fried puppies are made using cornmeal, onion, flour, sugar, buttermilk, and a few other choice ingredients.

Cole Slaw
Cole slaw is a favorite BBQ side no matter where you live. But, where you live could determine what kind of slaw you’ll be eating. For instance, in Lexington, North Carolina, they enjoy a bold and spicy red cole slaw that’s made with a ketchup-based dressing while in Tennessee they prefer a more traditional “white” cole slaw made using mayonnaise with a touch of mustard.

Potato Salad
Just like cole slaw, potato salad means different things to different folks. For example, some people prefer creamy potato salad made using mayonnaise while other prefer a more sparse version made with Dijon mustard, bacon, and parsley leaves, otherwide known as German potato salad.

BBQ Baked Beans

BBQ baked beans are sweet and zesty, wholesome, and dare-we-say-it, good for you! They’re also a popular favorite to have with just about any kind of BBQ. Like most other BBQ side dishes, baked beans are regionally unique. For instance, in the New England region they add molasses or maple syrup, rum, and bacon (or salt pork) to their baked beans while in the southern states, mustard is used to spice up the flavor.

Farmer’s Salad

A Farmer’s Salad is essentially made up of whatever’s fresh in the garden and ready to be picked. Seasonal lettuces, heirloom tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and more all topped off with a bright vinaigrette or creamy dressing.
