If you live on a country road and sell BBQ with only decent BBQ, you are not going to be in business long, unless your BBQ rocks the world. Everyone needs a hook, convenience is a good one.
I for one, have little interest in sitting in a hut along a road waiting for someone to come on in. Then again, I walked away from cooking when the place was packed and tips were plentiful. So I am not the guy to go to.
I'm feeling bearish, and I'm packing a Wusthof Grand Brisket slicer from MABA
