Default Sparky's Hatch / Iron Door BBQ Silver City

Shortfork and I decided to escape the heat in ABQ, road trip to Silver City to see Gringo Loco's side hustle: Iron Door BBQ.

First things first, I did a poor job with picture taking

The fastest way to Silver from Albuquerque is through Hatch, home of Sparky's. BBQ at Sparky's isn't my favorite, the green chile cheeseburger is the bomb!

Note to self, take the picture before you add condiments

The patty melt isn't really built right, it's just toast instead of the bun...
Sweet corn with green chile and onions, Shortfork had the seasoned wedge cut fries. The sausage comes in the boat from the warmer by the cash register, the sauce is in a hot pot by the drink machine. We got to Sparky's just after the lunch rush, the line was short

Saturday evening, the show went on the road for the first time to the balloon glow in Deming. Texas Hogger stopped by on his way home from Lordsburg to help out in the trailer. We had a great visit, thanks Terry!

I know I'm never starting a BBQ business, it's too much like real work.
Allen and Cruz are doing a great job with the food. Get there early, the ribs go quick!
Always dally thumb up!

Very cool Scott. I agree with you, Allen and Cruz are doing a great job. I wish them the best of luck with the food trailer. I know that they have been selling out every day they have been open.

Keep up the great work Allen.

Awesome pics Scott.
And you are correct about the hard work. I don't think Allen and Cruz have had a day off since they opened the trailer on the 4th of July.

They are doing a heck of a job.

This is fantastic. Great adventure, and the grub looks wonderful.

Crush it down in Silver City, fellas. Pretty nice setup you've got.
