    You've never lived until you have experienced the "grit-siccle". I used to work in a Wilderness Program with at risk kids. Grits was a staple of breakfast on the weekend, which we cooked "down trail" in an open air kitchen structure on a wood stove. On a semi regular basis, when we had grits, one of the kids would do something wrong and we would stop eating to go outside and talk about it. If the talk lasted more than 5 minutes the grits would cool off and stick together. When you stuck your fork in to get some, the whole portion would come out on your fork. Ahhh, the grit-siccle, those were the days.

    Oh yes, if it ain’t cooked in lard it ain’t worth eating, also leftover grits sliced up and fried are wonderful.

    When I was stationed in North Carolina, I always wondered why folks were so fat. I thought it was the BBQ. Now I know it must be the lard-fried grits!

    I may be south of the south, but there's nothing I love more than a nice big bowl of grits for breakfast (with biscuits and gravy of course)

    As a northener, I never could get into grits. But I had a friend in college who taught me how to at least make them palatable: 1. dump in a lot of salt, pepper, and butter 2. Crumble up a whole bunch of crispy fried bacon and dump in the grits, and most importantly, 3. drown the whole mess with Tabasco sauce. The crisp bacon gives it texture and the Tabasco sauce kills the taste buds so you can't tell how nasty the stuff tastes!

    I'd feel like a pervert walking into some store called "Piggly Wiggly".

    True Story....
    My wife and I (She from the South and me from the Nawth) were travelling through Wisconsin a while back. We stopped for breakfast and the waitress came to take our order. I asked her...."Do you serve grits here?" She kinda giggled and looked at my wife and then back to me...kinda nervous...."What's a grit?". I said "Thank God we're back in God's country!"
