"...had my first taste of “grits” at Fort Knox when I was 19 (and hated it)..."

Now hold on a minute...if all you've had are Army grits, you ain't had grits, my FRiend! Army cooks could ruin hot water soup, and I never had decent grits in any chow hall, in y 11 years in boots.

Also, if they were loaded up with sugar, syrup, or anything other than butter, salt and pepper (hot sauce or sawmill gravy are acceptable under certain circumstances), you didn't have grits. I saw many a Yankee over the years think because they look like cream of wheat, they were...big mistake.

Cracker Barrel has about the closest thing to decent grits of any national, cookie-cutter, chain restaurant, but they're hit and miss. Next time you're in the South, stop at a Mom n' Pop greasy spoon or a truck stop, and chances are you'll be able to find good grits.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

Apart from homemade, the best “restaurant” grits I’ve had were from the Southern waffle/breakfast chain “Huddle House”.

Cracker Barrel grits are the bomb!

For an added treat, order them with a side of red-eye gravy.

Heaven!
