Yeah its been a week I know......

I'm sorry I havent posted in a while. I've been working like a dog trying to get the construction finished and Wyatt has been real sick (had a 103* fever and blowin' mud out of his can). We've put so much Desitin (cooling salve) on his rear end I'm thinking about buying stock in the company. The little guy is a lot better now. Martha has been through the ringer......she's one heck of a mother (and wife)! Later today I'm going to post about the progress with some pictures. This post is in regards to the kitchen. That filthy "sum-bitch" is filthy no more, cleaners came and did a great job. The original bid was $500.00 to clean it but that guy had no real idea what he was getting into. It ended up being a $1200.00 shot in the mouth but it was worth it! Let me tell you......this one picture DOES NOT DO JUSTICE as to how much cleaner it is! I'll post on the construction & landscaping later this evening.

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!
