Everytime you post a picture, it makes my mouth water (and I just finished eating lunch, so I'm not even hungry). I have a sudden hunger for rib tips, mac and cheese and cornbread... that cornbread looks delicious. Is it made from scratch?

Can I just say that everytime you post a pic the food looks great but makes the portion size look so tiny. can you post it zoomed in or grouped together to make it at least appear larger?

Your not cooking them long enough?

Rib tips are the absolute BEST part of the rib!

Yeah, drinks are a bit low, but not offering tea was a big drink killer. Tons of people would ask for tea, and since we didn't have it, just got water. But we just got both sweet and regular tea set up a few days ago. That stuff is going well.

Also, we started to pick up on some drink stealing. People were ordering water and then filling up with soda or something. But this week we're moving to a two cup system with clear cups for water and different cups that will be handed out at the register for other drinks. That should help keep leakage to a minimum.

I'm headed to my printer right now and placing a huge shirt order. As soon as they come in I'll post it here and I'll even have a page to order them online.

Yeah, one of my employees is friends with her dad and said he owes a favor, so we're trying to work something out.

Also got a bikini bike wash in the works.

No answer to the rib tip question yet? I'm also intrigued by these. What cut are they?

Hi! Just found this thread and I am really impressed. I am a cook who just lost his job at a bbq restaurant in Alabama. The food was great IMHO but the owners didn't want to advertise we were 1.5 mile from the busiest interstate in Alabama and we had to close after 8 months. So my advice is never stop advertising and try anything once if is low risk. I also have an idea for extra parking without much cost. You said you had a church across the street ask if you could use or rent the lot when they are not having service. And if you rent pay in goods and services if you can instead of cash (probably cheaper) for free advertising. Just a few thoughts from a unemployed cook in Bama. thanks

You can also buy rib tips by the case or in 10lb. boxes.

You can get larger cases of tips as well. I just ordered 20 30# cases. I've found it's hard to find consistent and meaty tips and have gone through about four vendors.

Had a record Sunday. Usually sundays are pretty slow and it's mostly an after church lunch crowd. Not this weekend. At about 1 in the afternoon the dining room was completely full and there were about 20 more in line waiting to order. After that huge rush it started to feel like a typical Sunday and was slow the rest of the afternoon so I sent everyone home but one cashier. Big mistake. At 6 it felt like the whole town decided to come in.

It was a crazy day. Sold every ounce of meat and every last bit of all the sides. And I don't know why, but I put on 7 briskets for sunday when it's usually just a 3 brisket day. I guess it was just a gut feeling or something, but it paid off.

Thanks for the update. This thread has been a huge help to me. This fall I will be opening a Friday-Saturday restaurant that will be located in a new brewery. Thanks again for sharing your experience, it has been and will continue to be an important reference for me as I venture into the dark side.

Brethren in NoVA need to know. Sounds like a great fall road trip for suburb leaf peepers....
