    The Jack is Back!

    Going to be in the holler this weekend?

    I have no idea what your post is about.
    This: Appalachian Holler is a mesmerizing trip into Appalachia - far away from the American dream. A holler is a place where the kids can build a dam in the creek and have a good place to cool off and play.


    No, I’m gonna be in the swamp.

      In the swamp where it is cold and domp? So be kind to your fine feathered friends.

    The Jack Daniels invitational. The Jack Daniels distillery is located in the Stillhouse holler or as some people call it the Jack Daniels holler. If you have never gone to the distillery, I would highly recommend it.


      Sorry I didn't explain. After the 2020 COVID year shut down the Jack, this year it's only about 80 teams, all USA based. I first met Meathead at the Jack years and years ago...


        25 miles from my house. Going to be tough to be able to go with my current commitments. Maybe…

          You are so close!

        I first meet CandySue there about 5 years ago. I'm sure she does not remember. Neat town. In the past BBQ teams from all over the world would fly in and compete. The year I visited there were some guys from Australia, and many other country's .The Jack provided smokers for them. Kamado's

          I do remember randy56! You understand how different it's going to be with just USA competitors. I doubt if there'll be much public attendance either. I'm not giving out samples this year. I'll be judging.

        If you are not involved in BBQ competition you may never heard of the Jack. I'm sure CandySue is already on the road to the event. It is a BBQ invitational 1st prize is$25,000 in what is widely considered the world’s most prestigious barbecue competition. I just when't as a spectator. Press release below.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
