Dredge the slices of tomato into the flour, then the eggs and finally in the seasoned cornmeal. Place the breaded tomatoes in the oil and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side.

For the sauce: Mix the mayonnaise, buttermilk, barbecue sauce, vinegar, lime juice and brown sugar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the sauce alongside the fried tomatoes.
