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
OK, so it's Bush's that's just down the road from Sevierville. Not that there's a connection to the first BBQ grill as we know it today to Sevierville.

The sentence location led me to a wild goose chase.

That was pretty poor composition. Next time I will try to answer questions in a more orderly fashion. But it was fun watching you chase your tail.

Weber-Stephens was founded in 1893 as Weber Brothers Metal works in Chicago IL. Their primary business then I believe was making metal buoys.

The first Weber kettle was built in 1951, in Chicago, IL also, by George Stephen Jr. It was first commercially sold in 1952, and George Jr. bought out the company in the late 50's, and focused solely on grill production. Not sure what that had to do with Tennessee? Still, not sure a Weber kettle is the "first bbq cooker as we know it today"? But it is a damn fine product, as are their WSM's!
