Sometimes they're "co-colers". My grandpa use to drive the co-coler truck.

Unless maybe they're "arcees" or "arcee-colers". From "RC" or Royal Crown Cola which is disappearing as even a local brand.

At least in central and northern Florida, a very small town might be an "arcee-coler junction", probably from the sign on the vending machine at the town's only gas station.

Or more properly 'fillin' station". So go down to the fillin' station and get yourself an arcee-coler.

Im not a well traveled man, but I can tell you about Texas:

Gravy goes on rice too.

Barbecue is not A style of cooking but a spectrum. If you cant tell the difference between Texas, S Carolina and Kentucky barbecue you merit pity.

In general, open your mind and your pallette. In addition to Beef, Pork, Chicken and Fish you may be called on to eat a vareity of God's creatures great and small. These include but are not limited to Crawfish (Cornish Game Lobsters, yes you can suck the heads...no it wont impress us, some even consider it mandatory.), Gator, Squirrel, Deer, and Wild Hog.

Fitna <verb> - preparing to action. 'Im fitna go to the store.'

Any one that dont respect thier mama and daddy, aint worth knowing.

If you can sit on your porch, see nothing but trees and hear nothing but crickets , you have a much covetted position.

A good woman, a good dog, and a good gun are lifelong quests. If, in your lifetime, you find ONE of these, you are fortunate. If you find two you are truly lucky. If you find all three before you die, you are blessed.

Yes, we do all carry knives in various sizes. What elese would we clean our fingernails with?

The weather is always open for discussion.

Read your bible. You may not be religeous, but it will be referenced frequently.

Roadside produce is worth your consideration. Especially Black Diamond Watermellons.

Large Mason jars double easily as drinking glasses.

As Cargoman says, "all y'all" can be used to refer to people that aren't present: your family members or other group. You're on the phone, speaking to a father: "All y'all coming down for Christmas?" "Y'all coming?" would be acceptable as well.

"All y'all" can also be used to emphasize the completeness of the set. Suppose you're talking with three friends, and you want to invite them to a fish fry.

"I'm having a fish fry Saturday. Y'all wanna come?"
Friend1: "Sure, I reckon"
Friend2: "Sounds good"
Friend3: doesn't say anything, but nods. You want confirmation.
"So, all y'all are coming, then?"

Y'all is never singular.

No, no. Pork chops are fine eatin', and I've had some tasty beef and chicken barbecue. In fact, you can barbecue just about any kind of meat if you put your mind to it.

There are specialty markets around that stock up on obscurfed "Didn't they go out of business?' sodas RC ;probably won't comp;lete disappear for a while. Tennessee's "Double Cola" is still being marketed after all.

http://www.double-cola.com/

And it ws something I could only find in the clubhouse of a golf range my Dad used to drag my brother and me to when we were in late grade school.

The OP might not realize that "fitna" is just how "fixin'" is pronounced with a East Texas accent. Here in Georgia we actually pronounce the "x".

Then them people there was messin' with a coworker of mine who had to go out that ways.

He was invited to a Weekend Barbecue and asked what was being cooked.

"Barbecue."

"What sort of Barbecue?"

"Barbecue."

Rinse and repeat for a while.

Eventually they got the idea that to him, 'Barbecue' didn't mean Pork.
