    Got here at 5:45. It's now 6:45 and there's already a dozen people behind me. The smell of smoking meats and oak is amazing. Ignore the sign on the door. There's plenty of good food waiting inside.🥩🔥

      It will be worth the wait. Don't forget to ask if you can go in the back and look at the smokers...

                Smile man, and ask for a beef rib. I think they offer them only one day a week, but if today’s the day get one! Enjoy.

                  It's currently 9:30 am central time. The restaurant is open for drinks/bathrooms/merchandise. They are working their way through the line to take meat orders so as to gauge how much product is being sold. The line is into the parking lot now. I purchased my tshirt, and asked about seeing the smokers. They take people back in small groups once the first wave of food orders have been served. Approximately 12pm central time.

                      Drinks will come later. Want to be on my game for this experience. I did pick up a Stagg Jr. yesterday.

                      luvthemstillers Wow Stagg Jr is a great whiskey, potent as the day is long, but some wonderful flavor. Hard to find where I'm at.
