There is a little out of the way bbq joint in between High Rolls and Cloudcroft, NM that made exceptional barbecue. But what I really loved were their onion slices. They were crispy crunchy and ever so sweet! Almost like eating a slice of apple.

You WANT this on your pulled pork bbq sandwich!

They would never tell me how they did it but I think I figured it out.
