Frodo, that's quite a recipe. I've never seen one with soda in it; should give the biscuits some extra punch.
I've also never seen a recipe for a vegetable gravy for biscuits, just a plain meat based gravy. That recipe could be adapted to include some fresh summer veggies, such as green onions and green peppers.
Thanks for sharing.
BTW, have you thought of hosting a cooking show? A cooking plumber - interesting angle. There aren't that many cooking shows hosted by men.

you could perhaps take his recipe for red gravy and substitute for the bacon grease, with a loss of flavor. to rip an old joke from NatLamp, bear grease or a half cup of uncooked duck fat...
sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

Frodo, this is the kind of recipe I was thinking as being a typically good Southern biscuit recipe. I'll get some buttermilk and try it this weekend.
No problem with the kneading; I used to make homemade bread and am used to punching dough. It's good therapy.
cut butter into flour add milk fold to mix put on floured cutting board, fold 5 times try not to handle the dough to much, less is better roll out to 1/2" thick , cut bidscuits place on greased cookiee sheet at 425 till g- brown
