A red banner outside Brother Jimmy's BBQ invites you to "Put Some South In Yo' Mouth."

We're talking Meat and Beats. Every Saturday night, locals and tourists alike in shorts, hats, and sandals hit up the Southern barbecue joint for some pickleback shots, Fighting Cock bourbon, and hot 'cue.

And in the spirit of the night, the meat lovers and beat bangers of Brother Jimmy's came up with some songs that talk about meat, all cuts of it.

Lil Jon and the Eastside Boys' "Get Low" featuring Yin Yang Twins

"Ying Yang Twins, from the window to the walls song," was the first song that popped into Eddie Beccles' head.

"What's the meat part?"

"To the sweat drip down my balls, I guess," the bartender responded as he poured whiskey and pickle juice into shot glasses.

Zac Brown Band's "Chicken Fried"

"I'm gonna need more beer for this one," said Christina Hill who was sitting outside by the bar with a friend.

"I really like the Zac Brown Band and they have a song about fried chicken," Hill said. "It's a country song."

"Is it really about fried chicken?"

"It's about wherever your imagination takes you," interrupted the blonde who was sitting next to Hill.

Aerosmith's "Big Ten Inch Record"

"I am a rapper. I'll rap for you right here," said Carlos Santiago.

"No, that's okay. You really don't have to."

"I got some beats about carne asada, but I can't show you because I have a record coming out with Colombia," he said.

"Of course you do."

Meat Loaf "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)

"Songs about meat? Like what?" questioned Santiago's friend who was sitting next to him.

"Well, there's the band Meat Loaf. You know that song 'I'd Do Anything For Love'?"

"Oh yeah, he beats his meat to that," he laughed as he pointed to Santiago.

"I don't know, I guess my 'Big Ten Inch Record' by Aerosmith?" he added.

Ying Yang Twins "Wait (The Whisper Song)"

Tywan Martin and his friend "Antonio Stabino" were perplexed when asked if they could name a song about meat.

"You really caught me off guard on that one," said "Stabino" (his "alter ego name"), as he searched for songs on his iPhone.

"Depending on what kind of meat you're talking about, the one I could think of is Ying Yang Twins' 'Wait Until You See My Oh,'" said Martin.

Suga Free's "He Pimpin' She Hoein'"

"Or there's also Suga Free's 'He Pimpin' She Hoein'' or 'Hunger Strike' by Temple of the Dog," added "Stabino."

Guess a smart phone comes in handy after all.

Ludacris' Chicken-N-Beer

"I don't really know any songs about meat," said Shardar Lewis, who was in the middle of devouring her beefed-up dinner.

"The only thing I could think of is Ludacris' Chicken-N-Beer album."

Nothin' like "Southern Fried" to juice up your night.
