Marvel Comics.......POWERBALL!

Had to post this pic.......Houston Hickey, "PowerBall's" brother, designed this. I'll post a more relevant update later today. Oh well I do have some news, just got a bill from my lawyer down in memphis to the tune of $1500.00 odd bucks. Lawyers!?!?!?!?!

Hey Brother,
I have to say I love your blog. I was taken aback when I saw Houston’s comic book. He never ceases to amaze me. Your blog is amazing and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Looking at the pictures, I hope You, Elis, and I do not die from asbestos, HAHA! I had a blast and cannot wait until the doors are opened for real.

Just wondering where your place is going to be in Nolensville? I live here in Nolensville and stumbled upon your blog!

I also wanted to inform you that I am helping organize a Fall Festival here in Nolensville on September 30th. We are trying to get around 25 vendors to set up a booth with crafts, gift ideas or just to promote their business. Not sure if this is something you are interested in or not. But I thought I would let you know. The cost is only $25 to cover location expense (insurance and permits) and advertising. You can e-mail me at for more information. Right we have around 18 vendors lined up!

Glad to see more dinning options coming to the town!

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!
