Oh man I' so sorry to hear the news. I wish our family could help support the shop in some way. I would buy a T-shirt or two seeing as I can't make the trip to eat with the rest of you.

Willie.....you've done what so many of us have wished to do, owned a BBQ joint.....i'm sorry it hasn't worked out, but i know you gave it your all....I won't be able to make the trip, but I will hoist one in your honor on the 30th.
I wish you continued success in the rub/sauce and catering business.

Wow....so sorry to hear the news, Will. It just goes to show you that selling superior bbq and getting good press just isn't enough these days. I'd really like to be there on the 30th-- hope I'm not working....If you need anything, you know where to find me. Best of luck in whatever comes next.

I feel your pain...
As a BBQ restaurant owner I can understand how difficult your decision to close must be.

Kick butt with the catering and your rubs!

It's really a shame that this is happening to Willie. The food is pretty damn good there. It goes to show you that people are stoooopid!!! They will take sub par food over quality food for a few bucks difference. Sorry Will, I hope all works out for you.

I'll bring my Weber Performer 22" grill and I can also bring my Weber Smokey Joe 18".

I'll be doing Pigs in a hot tub (brats in a beer bath) and something else TBD. Might do stuffed onions. Saw Raichlen do 'em and boy did they look good.

I am planning on coming. I can make Third place wings in my ECB. Is the ECB needed? I pretty much get it out twice a year to cook chicken. So this would help justify hanging on to it.

Willie B,

I really wanted to make this one... still want to hang my pants and belt on your wall...(inside joke)

U r tha Best...

Willie Palooza Comp is still a fave!

My Mom was born 8/28/28... she will be 28 tomorrow...

My Dad has cancer and is in remission...(they gave him a 20% chance of remission and he told them...I'll take those odds!)

I'll be flying down to Naples,FL on Friday to celebrate my Mom and Dad...

Best to you Willie!!!

Yours in BBQ,

Cliff

Willie,

Thanks for such a great party! Thanks to all the other Brethren who made it a hit, too! After what we had gone through last week, it was great to hang with our buddies!

Willie - the ribs and pulled pork were a HUGE hit at our funeral after-gathering. People from all over the country - and the GLOBE - were blown away.
