Coke sucks (part two)

So Pepsi came this past Tuesday, hooked up the machine and all the syrup and we were in business by lunch. Meanwhile I still have not heard from Coke as to when they are going to schedule the pick-up of their equipment. Well a couple of days pass by and I finally get a call from the balding, hitler-mustache, mullet wearing sales consultant who for the past 18 months has done such a wonderful job of covering us. He says he can only pick it up on Monday, as in Today, at 8:30 - 9:00 in the morning. As you might know this is the day we are closed......funny how that all works out huh? So I say fine, see you Monday morning. Now....I live about 25 minutes from the joint.....thats 50 minutes round trip.......ah heck lets call it an hour. I leave this morning a little before 8:00 to get there. THE - BASTARDS - DID - NOT - SHOW - UP!!!!! Ticked off is not the word! I know some Coke guys read this blog, and I know they share my disdain for "bald with a mullet". I wouldnt be surprised if they switched some things around to screw his day up or what. I dont know what my retaliation will be, but I will keep you posted. I can tell you this..........they cant get their machine without me...........and it may be a few weeks before Captain Mullet Man gets it back. Stay Tuned.

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!
