    • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
      1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
      2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
      3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
      4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
      5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
      6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
      7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
      8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
      9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
      10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
      11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
      12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
      12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

      Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

      I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
      I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

    Construction Update #1, continued...

    Around the Vent Hood area, you need Metal Studs, or you have to offset the vent hood 6" from the wall. Metal studs it is!

    I'm raising the ceiling in the kitchen to 9', so we have a roomier feel, and more room for upper shelf storage above the tables and the fridges. It's SO BIG!!!! something like 43 x 13.

    Thanks Paul! My mom is doing well. I'm sure I'll make it in relatively soon. Making lots of trips that way. I'm hoping to swing by and grab some grub on my way to DeRidder. I'll bring a load up the road and spread the joy!

            My concrete guys' crew had trouble (he fired a couple of them) so I took over and did the form boards setup, making sure it was square and level for the pitroom.

                        • Started Low-N-Slow BBQ in 2012. Obviously, it's taken hold (in chronological order:
                          1.) A pair of Weber Smokey Mountain 22.5's
                          2.) #LilTex, a 22" Expensive Offset Smoker (looks like a Yoder Witicha)
                          3.) #WhoDat1, a HUGE Gravity Fed Insulated Cabinet Smoker (cooking chamber 3'x2'x6')
                          4.) A Full Size Commercial Dryer/converted to Vertical Smoker.
                          5.) Jambo Backyard stickburner (my FAVORITE Pit so far)
                          6.) GrillMeister, a huge 24"x48" Adjustable, Charcoal Grill from Pitmaker.com
                          7.) 22" Weber Kettle with Slow-N-Sear
                          8.) Vault insulated reverse-flow cabinet smoker from Pitmaker
                          9.) BarbecueFiretruck...under development
                          10.) 26 foot BBQ Vending Trailer equipped with HUGE Myron Mixon 72xc smoker is HERE, Oct 2016!
                          11.) Opened www.PaulsRibShackBarbecue.com Food Trailer officially in March 2017
                          12.) Austin Smoke Works 500 Gallon Propane Tank Offset Smoker, named "Lucille" as travel pit for PaulsRibShack, Oct 2018.
                          12.) Opening Brick & Mortar location at 4800 Nelson Rd, Spring 2019. Had a pair of 1,000 Gallon Austin Smoke Works pits, both in RibShackRed for our new place!

                          Fabulous Backlit Thermapens, several Maverick Remote Thermometers (don't use any remotes anymore), Thermoworks Smoke, Other Thermoworks toys, Vacuum sealer, lots and lots of equipment...

                          I'm loving using BBQ to make friends and build connections.
                          I have #theRibList where I keep a list of new and old friends and whenever I'm cooking, I make 1 to 20 extra and share the joy.

                        Thank you all for your kindness and encouragement!

                        I'll be candid for a minute: This project is SO HARD. I've never worked harder in my life. And I'm not one to shy away from hard work. Every day I get new challenges and questions and things to remember. Sometimes, it's not all that fun. But, like Jesus said in John 16, a woman in childbirth has great pain, but she forgets it all when the joy comes from the birth of the beautiful baby! I'm sure I'll look back on this season as a fun story when we are up and running and it's going great.

                        Well, I tried to upload these pics with last night's post, but it just didn't work. Here are some pics of our building and the fantastic lights in the majestic Oaks!

                        This is the view from high atop my manlift, about midnight. It's a 45' lift, and I'm near the top of the front trees. So great!

                        The trees and lights work so well with the red smokers, don't you think?

                          Nice that sinker is expensive stuff, but beautiful. My mantle is wormwood hickory only because I couldn't find a hand made cypress sinker one at first Monday in Canton.

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                      the good one grill

                      The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.
