What is Southern BBQ? Well it came of Memphis and Alabama. This BBQ came from a man called Moe’s back in 1998 – when he would whip out the grill for his neighbors on the 4th of July. Along came three college kids – who loved his BBQ and were getting tired of going to school.
So what happened…? well you will have to just listen. But, the restaurants they own have grown like mad! Southern BBQ.

1/2 cup apple cider
1/2 cup sugar

2 to 3 black peppercorns
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
Simmer together vinegar, sugar, bay leaves, peppercorns and onion until soft. Remove bay leaves and peppercorn.
Chill onion mixture.
1/4 cup local honey
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
pinch of kosher or sea salt
3/4 cup seasoned red wine vinegar (Marukan works well)
1/4 cup salad or canola oil
3 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
Whisk together honey, lime juice, salt and red wine vinegar.
Slowly incorporate oil while whisking to form marinade.
Add chopped dill. Season to taste.
Pour marinade over cucumber and allow to sit, refrigerated, for four to six hours or overnight.
Combine chilled pickled red onion and watermelon and toss so that marinade is evenly distributed.
Note: If you marinade cucumbers overnight, cut watermelon the following day just prior to mixing. Doing this yields much better results.
