The Shed: Great barbecue in Biloxi, Miss.
As many of you long-time, rabid Tim McDonald fans know, I’m always looking for great barbecue joints in my travels, and Biloxi, Miss. has one of the best, both in terms of setting and food.
The Shed in Ocean Springs (www.theshedbbq.com) is a local legend. There were fears it would not re-open after Hurricane Katrina, because it suffered severe flooding (they have a line drawn at the watermark, which is chest-high). But, it did come back, with a vengeance.
It’s basically a pile of junk the owner, Brad Orrison, has collected over the years, and it has more than its share of redneck chic – the chandeliers made of rib bones and beer bottles, for example. But, it all works.
They have a blues band every Saturday night, always crowded with “Shed Heads,” and an annual Blues Festival every November.
The food is great, classic, Southern barbecue. All the meat is hand-pulled at the place – that might sound disgusting to non-barbecue fans, but you die-hards will appreciate it.
The spare ribs are falling-off-the-bone good, as is the slow-smoked brisket.
Plus, they have good-looking waitresses wearing short skirts.

Sounds like you're from Texas, all right.
