Default Beans

Yesterday we went to see Bush's Beans. They have a visitors center with a neat cafe' and a really good museum. Besides the history and operation of Bush's Beans they have a video about the history of BBQ. Wanna know who invented the first BBQ cooker as we know it today? Just down the road from Sevierville, Tennessee.

Couldn't find anything relating to Sevierville in a Google search. May have to check Snopes next...

I've seen cookers in museums that predate the civil war.

Captdan are you talkin about the Sevierville between Rogersville and Kingsport? I used to go down there every week, but never saw too many Que joints. Found one place that did fried baloney sandwiches though.

We hear Bush's beans are tiny and shrivelled , any truth to that?

We'd like to know but don't want to look....

Bush's is on a small road just off I40. Chestnut-hill, TN . The only thing there is Bush's. For reference us Dandridge or Newport, TN. According to the history video the kettle was invented by some guy that worked for the Weber Co. about 1910. It looks about the same as today's Weber. They have dozens of people and machines that grade the beans. Everything is state of the art. They don't seem to have anything against the Aussies. No booze there but there's still smoke in the mountains occasionally. Fun family place to visit. In the cafe' they have a 'bean of the day' sample with all orders. Don't walk in the grass without looking down first. Woof Woof
