Before/After landscaping

Pics dont do it justice but here are the before/after pics in regards to the landscaping. The previous shrubs were out of control and literally taking the front of the building over. I didnt do anything real expensive, just cheap and tough. I'll stick some mums in the whisky barrels and pansies in the window boxes hanging off the deck railing. Lord willing Legendary fence builder Ellis Bryan is coming out this weekend to build the fence around the shed on the side of the building where the cooker, etc. is going to be. I think its only a matter of time before some T.V. producer puts together a landscape version of "Orange County Choppers" featuring ol' Bill Bryan and his boys over there off Granny White in Green Hills. The show would be a hit! Anyway, the sign was installed today and we got the majority of the sod laid but ran out of daylight so I'll get a pic of that tomorrow. The other full color version of the T-shirts are supposed to be delivered tomorrow at Bosco's by Nick. Thats it for tonight, I'm going to bed.

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!
