I'll be purchasing a BBQ sandwich for the first time in years this afternoon on the way to a ball game.

I called ahead because they close shop when they run out and I know I won't
be there till 3:00 or so. The gentleman told me to come around back if they were closed.

That's great to see a pitmaster getting a James Beard Award. Let us know what you think.

I'm bummed. I got there later than expected and as i expected, they were closed. I went around back and knocked on a door and no one came. They were already cooking for tomorrow so I sat in the driveway for a sec and took in the smell of pork cooking on a cinder block pit.

There will be another game.

I gotta try that! I feel a motorcycle ride coming up as soon as it warms up a little.

I've been wanting to try Jones' since I heard about it because of the Beard Award and have been near enough to it to give it a try if it was on my time. Trouble is it's always been on company time. Don't think they'd understand my excuse for the trip.:roll:

Tough luck Cliff. I've heard there's a big debate among the locals as to whether Jones or Craigs is better and I know how good Craigs is.
