While perusing through press releases (as I am wont to do), I came across a missive issued by the Gwinnett Braves. This fledgling International League franchise was touting the fun to be had during its current Opening Week homestand.

right with the “Knucksie,” a pulled pork open-faced sandwich on a slice
of cornbread, topped with cole slaw and barbecue sauce and scallions,
that is featured at Niekro’s Sports Bar.

All I can say is that I could really go for a Knucksie about now. If you have been lucky enough to try one then please send a report to email@example.com
