"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
This recipe is from Jack McCarthy's Restaurant Recipes. Jack McCarthy hosted Friday Feast on Channel 7 out of Detroit from 1979 thru 1982. This recipe is from The Old South Bar-B-Que restaurant in Warren, MI. Not sure if this restaurant still exists but when my family has to have their biscuits and gravy a couple times a year, this is the recipe I use.
