I've been a professional chef for 16 years. If you know someone who is pulling a 30% profit please introduce me. I would love to work for him.

Why? He obviously isn't paying his employees anything.

Glad to hear things are going well! Still hoping to get over there soon.

Have you calculated what your food cost is running you yet on the average?

Hope the journey continues to go well!

Never a dull moment. Had some heavy rain last night and when I walked in the entire kitchen was flooded. Lovely way to start the day.

And who would have thought, but today's lunch was the busiest ever. Even busier than weekends. Been sold out of ribs, tips, and chicken since 1:30.

And a news crew from WNDU came this morning to do a story but with all the flooding issues to take care of I had to turn that down.

Just another day at the pig...

Sorry to hear about the floods. Any idea of the cause? Other than torrential rain, I mean?

I finally made it all the way through. I can definitely say I don't want to even go down that road. I don't know how you kept your sanity (or did you). Congrats on you success.

It won't be ready until late July.

And speaking of another smoker, I had a woman break down and start crying when I told her we were already booked for our big orders this sunday. That was brutal, so I told her I'd still be able to get her pulled pork and am just bringing in my WSM this weekend to help cook a few more butts.
