Gotta Love go-go boots!!!

Music City Brewers Festival was a blast......made some great contacts, one of which is scheduled to be an off-site mini "grand opening" at a local brewery, maybe two local breweries. Weather was great, beer was great, crowd was great......very good day. Attached this pic with some cigar girls with go-go boots. Ball, Duggan, Jeff, Kieth & Myself with the girls. How bout' jeff hugging two hunnies. Gotta give the guy credit.........could'nt decide how to "sweeten his tea" so he went after both the white and the brown sugar to suit his taste.......God bless him! This week will be a busy week....should be signing the final lease tomorrow and starting on the demo and construction work. Should have an official open date at the end of this week.

What is this Blog???

You ever been sitting around cooking for your family and friends and been told the following: "Hoss, this is the best I've ever had in my dadgum have got to open up a place of your own". The thought crosses your mind to do just that, but for whatever reason you dont. Well I'm "that" guy that actually went through with it and did it. I had absolutely ZERO restaurant experience! I decided to start this blog about my own experience hoping that it may be of some use and help to others who might be interested in opening their own place.
I learned this craft almost 20 years ago cooking whole hogs on brick & cinder block pits at a couple of little BBQ Joints in Henderson, TN. I learned from old, lifelong career Pit-Masters, working with them as an apprentice during school off and on for four years. Over the course of that time I learned the old, time-honored craft of REAL pit barbecue. At Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint I am trying as hard as I can everyday to bring that time-honored authenticity to my customers.
As you read you'll see I've made some stupid decisions, and I've made some good decisions. If you are thinking of opening a restaurant, especially a BBQ Joint, read this blog! Maybe some of this info can be of use to you. At the very least you will be entertained because I pull no punches.
Now listen, this is my blog to not only help with information but my blog to freely rant about my day to day experiences. There is no real "bad language" on this blog but there might be some things said that are very "tongue in cheek". If you are easily offended and/or cant see the satire in my posts then please just leave the blog. It will save both of us the annoyance of each other. For those of you who do like satire and are looking for good information about this experience, then by all means enjoy!
