      Welcome to the Pit, glad you're here. My family is from Germantown, IL, and moved to St. Louis when I was young. Ironically I didn't discover smoking my own BBQ until I moved here to North Carolina. Then I discovered one of my now favorite BBQ stores about 2 blocks from my mom's house in Affton. I hope I can visit one of your restaurants the next time I'm in St. Louis, best of luck with any new venture.

              Welcome from San Diego. Sorry you had to shut down. My son owns a restaurant in the San Francisco area and it's a challenge. We expect you to bring us some of your secrets of the trade. I'm sure you bring an entirely new perspective to the site.
