Again, a purely "pretty" picture, made after I restoked the fire (using a blow dryer) around 0500.

Making cochinita pibil continues with wrapping the pork shoulder in banana leaves and slow cooking until the internal temperature is 170 – 180 degrees F, and it is falling apart tender. In this case I’m also cooking another piece of pork shoulder with a different spice rub, but mostly salt and pepper. The cichinita pibil is in the roasting pan, and here I’m about to add some water to create a gravy (hopefully). These cooked for about 5 1/2 hours at around 250 – 300 F, in my offset smoker with an oak log fire. Note that this shot is at the very start of cooking.

Biscuits & Barbeque Diner, 106 E 2nd St in Mineola, Long Island

Biscuits & Barbeque Diner, 106 E 2nd St in Mineola, Long Island

Biscuits & Barbeque is a rare 1947 Silk City Diner that has a distinct Texas barbeque and Southern-style cooking flair to the menu. The place is spotless, smells great, and the people who work there (including the owner, Joan Gallo) are really friendly. I ordered a BBQ Pulled Pork Po’ Boy sandwich and some fries and it was one of the best things I’ve ever tasted. It was my first traditional submarine sandwich from Louisiana.

Among the interesting items served are Delta Jambalaya (spicy chicken and smoked Andouille sausage), Mustard Battered Catfish, Grilled Gator Sausage, and BBQ Gator Burger with onion rings. Dixie Chicken and Waffles with honey butter and candied pecans, a dish made famous in the south as well as in Harlem, is another favorite. The restaurant has a barbeque smoker which enables Joan to serve signature dishes Barbeque Chicken and Barbeque Pulled Pork.

Joan Gallo and her business partner, Tom Sullivan, also own and operate the Delta Grill, a Louisiana-style restaurant in the Hell’s Kitchen district of Manhattan.

*** Silk City Diners (Paterson Vehicle Company), Paterson, NJ, 1927-1964, built a fine-crafted diner in a variety of styles. Exteriors typically used a combination of stainless steel and porcelin in many different color schemes and often displayed the diner’s name on a large horizontal porcelin stripe. Two Silk City diners are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Clarksville Diner in Decorah, Iowa, and the Village Diner in Red Hook, New York. All Silk City’s that I have seen which were built before the mid-50’s, have a similar monitor style roof. Later Silk City’s feature a flat roofline and an unusually large vestibule, as does the Martindale Chief Diner located just off the Taconic Parkway in upstate New York.

Da1Stop, Nelson Street, #Greenville, #Mississippi – v5974

Da1Stop, Nelson Street, #Greenville, #Mississippi - v5974

A business on Nelson Street in Greenville, Mississippi.

The Mississippi Blues Trail mentions Nelson Street as a formerly very hopping place, with numerous blues nightclubs and big name blues entertainers who played there. Now, the street is only a remnant of it’s former glory. Building, after building, row after row of businesses lie fallow, empty, derelict in their duties, while an occasional barbecue smoker on wheels remains parked on the grassy sidewalks in front of the businesses, and the lingering sweet aromas of smoked pork cooking still fragrance the air.

There are signs that on periodically, on occasion, folks have made significant valiant, even heroic effort to revitalize and redeem the area. Fresh coats of paint adorn buildings that appear in good – some, even in excellent condition. But like Advanced Cardiopulmonary Life Support often is, it’s been all to no avail. It has tragically breathed it’s last.

As can be seen here, the "Come in, we’re OPEN" sign imprisoned behind the metal bars that protect a still-intact window – as if from grave robbers – betrays a very dark truth of the matter. The cash registers are as silent as a cemetery breeze. Like a grave – the final resting place of all human effort – this business too, is closed.

The Mississippi Blues Commission writes this about Nelson Street, in Greenville:

"Nelson Street was once the epicenter of African American business and entertainment in the Delta. Nightclubs, cafes, churches, groceries, fish markets, barbershops, laundries, record shops, and other enterprises did a bustling trade. Famous blues clubs on the street included the Casablanca, the Flowing Fountain, and the Playboy Club. Willie Love saluted the street in his 1951 recording "Nelson Street Blues."

"Whereas many Delta towns once "rolled up the sidewalks" in time for curfews, Greenville nurtured a flourishing nightlife, especially during the 1940s and ‘50s. Blues artists and audiences from throughout the area gravitated to the cafes, pool halls, and nightclubs of Nelson Street. The music ranged from raw Delta blues to big band jump blues and jazz. Years before he became America’s top black recording artist, Louis Jordan joined local bandleader and music educator Winchester Davis for some performances here in 1928.

"When down-home southern blues was at its commercial peak in the American rhythm and blues industry in the early 1950s, record companies headed for Nelson Street in search of talent. Leading lights on the local scene included Willie Love and Sonny Boy Williamson II, both of whom recorded for the Jackson-based Trumpet label. In 1952 Charlie Booker and others recorded for the rival Modem Records at the Casablanca, an upscale restaurant and lounge at 1102 Nelson, which advertised its services "For Colored Only." In the midst of one session, the local sheriff ordered the recording stopped when artists contracted to Trumpet attempted to record for Modem. The resulting lawsuit made headlines in the national trade papers.

"One of the Casablanca recordings, Charlie Booker’s "No Ridin’ Blues," joined Willie Love’s "Nelson Street Blues" as a local anthem when Booker sang, "Greenville’s smokin’, Leland’s burnin’ down." Booker, Love, and Little Milton Campbell were among the blues artists who had their own radio shows on WGVM or WJPR. Disc jockey Rocking Eddie Williams later had a record store on Nelson Street. Blues venues of the 1950s included Henry T’s Pool Room, the Silver Dollar Cafe and the Blue Note.

"Nelson Street alumni include Oliver Sain, Eddie Shaw, J.W. "Big Moose" Walker, Burgess Gardner, Lil’ Bill Wallace, Roosevelt "Booba" Barnes, Willie Foster, T-Model Ford, John Horton, and Lil’ Dave Thompson, as well as Greenville’s first black policeman, guitarist Willie "Burl" Carson. The most successful of them all, Little Milton, paid tribute to the Flowing Fountain, a Nelson Street show club, in his 1987 Malaco Records hit "Annie Mae’s Cafe.""
