Some of our smoked wings.

That looks great brother, but sorry, I've got you beat...

Check out the Weekend Report (part II)

Unless you think you're better, we'll have a Throw Down.

I'll take you hands down on the wings, but you have me beat on the Hog, until you teach me how...

Then it's just you and me, big boy...

Hope you feel better soon.

do me a favor.....hold the air valve on the side of your head down for a minute or two.

Those wings look great. How do you cook them? Do you smoke them for a while and then deep fry them? How long are they smoked? Do you use cherry or another wood?

smoked over apple/hickory, flash fried to bring to temp, then tossed.

Terry said...

Air valve? Hell son, there ain't no air between my ears. I can back my shit up. Care to take on 7th place wings?

As I recall, didn't anybody on the team even come close to that except for Evan and he beat all of us.

Bring it on fat boy, I'm waiting on ya...(GGG)


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!
