We're talking behind your back, Jeremy.
BTW, the pickles get better with age. 3-4 days.

It is Jeremy's business and it is his life too. He will spend a LOT of time there and, if the TV makes life more fun, he deserves it.

Interesting to see how interested people are about a cheap refurbished TV.

That's the least of my problems. This week has included theft, missed brisket delivery, underage girls giving me their phone numbers, needing to call the police, towing cars, staff fights, etc.

And that's the tip of the iceberg. If I've learned anything through this it's that you need to have thick skin, take everything people say with a grain of salt, and don't be surprised by anything people are capable of.

In other news, a record Friday today. A local brewery has started a brisket food truck in town for a few hours on the weekend, but don't see that as a concern. And I'm in talks with a local hog farm about possibly sourcing all local pork.

Lots of good stuff happening.

Is someone from the brewery running it or did they bring in someone to run it for them?

I love it, brother... that's like you starting up a mobile brewery to "compete..." You obviously have your stuff in one sock on the barbecue front.

No matter what the staff say, you are The Boss. Kick ass and provide pink slips as needed. If they can't be professional about their duties, they have no business near yours.

Thanks very much for sharing your journey with the rest of us! We're behind you (at LEAST in spirit!) all the way and want you to succeed.

Keep the updates comin'.... even if they only provide you a place to vent before diving back in!

Kind regards,
SD

Yeah, we need to hear this phone number story. If I get groupies out of it, I might have to open a restaurant. I'm sure my wife will be OK with it.

Oh, you'll get some groupies, that's for sure. A girl wearing a high school cheerleading jacket just walked up and gave me a piece of paper with her name and number on it. I mean WTF? And my staff has said there have been a few ladies in here asking them about my relationship status. There are some crazy people out there.

As for the brewery brisket truck, I'm not sure who they are having run it. They have a small restaurant at their place and have offered some smoked foods for some time now. I'll have to go check it out next week and see how it is.

He's also losing customers just by virtue of being a BBQ restaurant because there are people that just don't like Q. Some people are never gonna be happy, and are only content if they aren't happy. It's a fact of life. Anyone who has done one second of research on the Pig knows about the lines, the waits, and the risk of running out of food. Buyer beware.

I, for one, applaud Jeremy for responding to what appears to be continuous requests for a TV. I'm not in his shoes, so I can't say if I would have bought it or not, but the fact that he can turn to his customers and say, "You ask, you receive," is pretty impressive. Sure as hell beats telling a regular that he can't afford having people hang around all day. If I'm the reg, that sends me a clear cut message: I'm nothing but a dollar sign to this guy. And all the evidence I see on the thread and on his facebook page is that Jeremy prides himself on seeing his customers return, not squeezing every dime from them.

Got my fingers crossed that on May 4, I'll make my first stop to the Pig. Heading up to Kalamazoo for a family friend's First Communion. I'm hoping that time permits a detour on the way back. Pretty sure my wife is letting me stop so I'll shut up about having to go there.

Oh and +1 on the pics of your food on the TV.

Really looking forward to seeing what the summer brings for you Jeremy.
I whipped out a double batch of your pickle recipe this weekend. Also looking forward to those.

You all should report that one to Yelp, because people from CA aren't allowed to leave, so there is no way that guy could have been there.

As such, I see nothing wrong with sliding_billly's post that would warrant this response of your's above.

People travel and reviewer's location should not be cause for speculation on the validity of the review. However, I hope you have been there per my comment above.
