Courtesy of the Southern Foodways Alliance, here’s a short video on Archibald’s, a joint that I’ve never been to but according to rlreevesjr is his ”last meal on earth joint”
We’re pleased to share our newest short film, Archibald’s, made by Wes Wages of Armosa Films. Head to Northport, Alabama, where you’ll meet George Archibald Jr., his sister Paulette Washington, and her son Woodrow Washington. Their family has been in the barbecue business since 1962. The tiny establishment just a stone’s throw from Tuscaloosa is famous in Alabama and beyond for its pit-smoked ribs and sliced pork butt.
