IF you leave now, you just might make it. I'd almost bet that there's someone in line already. :-D

It's a fun experience, bring a chair and a cooler with your favorite beverage. I met a lot of really nice locals and travelers like myself.

Heh, read an article about Franklins and it did mention that waiting in line is almost like tailgating. People bring their beverage of choice, set up chairs and just hang out.

The trick is to have a call in order (must do it weeks in advance) and I believe it has to be over 5lbs of meat. Walk up at 10am, pass the line, pick up your food and take it somewhere to eat. Other than that, like said above get there at 8am with a chair. You could also go get basically the same thing by going to John Muellers trailer at 11.

That's nuts...you have to post pics of the meat. Make sure to sample everything, and induce food coma before you leave :-D
