Default God Bless those that have eaten your BBQ

A friend and fellow employee is driving from one of our Florida operations here to Tucson. He called prior to leaving Florida to inquire as to the possibility of, "having some of that brisket that you cooked when you lived in Texas."

I had to reply in all honesty that, "it won't be possible." My statement was made with both a heavy heart and with pre-planned despair in my voice.

He asked, "Why?"

I replied, "No Hickory."

Him: "Can't you get Hickory in Tucson?"
Me: "Nope."
Him: "Where do you get it?"
Me: "Texas."
Him: "I'm driving through Dallas. Can I get some there?"
Me: "Nope."
Him: "Well...where can I get it?"
Me: "Fort Worth."
Him: "Done. Half-cord be enough?"
Me: "Yep."

God Bless friends that have been seduced by the smoke.

Make sure you keep up with when he's passing through Texas again.

Let me know the next time he's coming thru Texas and I can probably rustle up some hickory for free. I live about 20 miles N. of I-20 in East Texas.

I'm so desperate for some logs of Mesquite, I'm thinking of burning up the rest of my vacation and trucking it on down to TX just to get some.
