Default Ole hickory & Restaurant food

Over the years I've read about how bad restaurant food sucks and some do. Recently I've eaten at a place that use's an EL Ole Hickory smoker, I love the flavor this smoker produces. I don't know much about their smokers but if I could put one in my back yard, (cheap) enough, I'd be a ole hickory man! This place keeps their smoker anchored down in front of the building, I'd be a fraid some bozo would steal it. Go Ole hickory.

Are you by chance referring to the Que joint near 53rd & N.W. Radial Hwy in Omaha? I've seen his Ole Hickory chained to that pole out from and wondered the same thing. Never ate there, might have to give it a try!

Trucky thats it. It's called Hartland BBQ, I just found a article about it and stopped by. It's a busy place at lunch time and not a very big joint. Their smoker is out front, Ole hickory. I've had the lunch special, three times now. Trucky I'm not sure how the FEC compares since I've never tasted food from one, I kick myself for not trying Plowboys food last year at the River city round up. I talked with him while he was selling it. As I said I like the flavor Ole Hickory produces.

I used to cook on Ole Hickory Pits at my last restaurant. They were pretty darn consistent and used a surprisingly small amount of fuel-- they were gas assisted.

I love the J+R pits we use at the new place, but mainly because they are run wood only and that's more like how I do it at home. They are not rotiss and I like that, too....

Martin's BBQ Joint just outside Nashville, TN uses an Ole Hickory pit for the restaurant. He also has one on his comp rig.

BRBBQ- One of these days we need to hook up for lunch. I've been meaning to give that place a try. I'll drag garyk1398 along as well.

Ole Hickory makes a smaller smoker. Not sure of the price, but if it's a chip off the ole block then it should put out some high quality BBQ (won't be cheap either).
