I don't doubt it but all you have to do is look at the number of people selling propane pig cookers in North and South Carolina - there is a big market for them. I find a lot of barbecue folks in South Carolina don't worship at the alter of wood and charcoal the way we do. That's different in NC, particularly in Eastern NC but there are still a lot of propane pig cookers up there.
