    A great story on barbecue and helping people

    Here's a local Gainesville story with multiple ways folks here at the Pit should find it interesting. First, it's from the Sports section of The Independent Florida Alligator where, many moons ago, Meathead was sports editor. Second, it's about barbecue.

    The story is about Shannon Snell, former All-American tackle for the Gators who went to play in the NFL. Now he is a certified pitmaster working at Sonny's. During the pandemic, he's been engaging in "Barbecue Drive-By", where he drops off his great food for individuals and even groups of up to 450 nurses, just to help out folks on the front lines or those in need of a meal.

    This little snippet gives you the flavor, and it almost got to the point of saying "amazing ribs":

    “It is a learning process every single day because not every person is going to cook the same way. So we have good briskets and bad briskets, have great ribs and bad ribs, so it's just trying to perfect every single day to have that perfect bite, that perfect brisket, that perfect piece of pork, that that you cook and somebody will say, ‘Man this is amazing.’”
