I love cornbread, I just don't love MY cornbread! I can cook it in a hot cast iron skillet, I don't over mix (did that once and will never do it again) but my cornbread doesn't come out like the kind you get at a good bbq joint.
I'm thinking it's the ratio of flour to cornmeal. I tend to do 50/50 but maybe the ones I like have a different ratio? Can you make them with all cornmeal and no flour?
