    I was in TN last week and it was in the 70's all week. Came home Sat. to 31 degrees and freezing rain with 6" of snow still in the yard. Why did I come back. (oh yeah, to help pay taxes and close the billion$ gap in the state budget):imaposer

    There was some chatter about BBQ stops earlier on. There is a great spot right off 91 exit 4 in Putney, VT. Left off the ramp if headed north and its up on the right next to a gas station. If you blink, you'll miss it. OR.....Route 2 in Bethel, ME. Heading east, little BBQ shack trailer in a parking lot on your left across from good sized gas station on the right. Both places have awesome food. I think the place in Maine is called the Wicked Good BBQ, lol.

    can I still chime in after I move to Tennessee? :imaposer

    That rib place in VT off exit 4 is called Curtis Ribs. Very good, but I doubt they are open yet. Outside dining only. I had a good meal at Little Mark's Big BBQ in Vernon CT, but the stuff in Tennessee is to die for.

    Curtis' All American Bar-Be-Que in Putney. There's also
    Top of the Hill Grill BBQ in Brattleboro.
    Both have the same ratings/reviews. Don't know which one is better.

    Having had both on multiple occasions I would pick Top of the hill over Curtis'.
    But when in that area I would pick Pitstop BBQ in NH on 12 west of Keene
