"Money...Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash!"
The ol' sayin' goes, "Money can't buy success," but in the world of COMPETITION BBQ it certainly HELPS!! Going from Backyard BBQ to Competition BBQ is a HUGE jump. Now, the initial move is not bad, BUT once the 'proverbial BUG bites' you better have a BANKROLL!
I won't get into the specifics now, but consider, the GranPappy started smokin 'officially' after attending the 2006 Hudson Valley Ribfest (disregard the fact that GranPappy's MOTHER owned a 'ribjoint' called BONES in the late 80's-early 90's).
|Since that time, the GranPappy went from cookin' grilled cheese on a Coleman campstove to a Great Outdoor Smoky Mountain to a BACKWOODS.|
|The PARTY model -- check out the NEW EXTENDED PARTY!!! Dang....TELL YOU WHAT@!|
GranPappy's sage advice-->Bottom line - time, money and practice coupled with the desire to SMOKE THE COMPETITON will get you CALLS. But it AIN'T EASY.
Fred is the WELL-known smokin' guitar player (NEXT time we want to hang out and JAM!). The brisket class was informative and Fred was forthright with any questions that were asked. TIM, Fred's 'partner' (NO!, not THAT kind of partner!!) was helpful and worked to keep Fred on-task. NOT an easy job!
|FRED...rubbin' his meat! And it WAS good!|
MORE than once the crew from TELLYOUWHATBBQ.com remarked how much they would LOVE to have a place like Fred's Music and Barbecue Supply close to our 'hood!! We would DEFINITELY be sittiin' round on Saturday morning shootin' the SMOKE!
Fred's Brisket class was money well-spent by a team looking to improve. TYWBBQ would recommend this class to anyone who is interested in improving his/her brisket. AND!! the BONUS is...this MAY be the BEST BBQ STORE TellYouWhatBBQ has ever entered. If only we had more time...and MONEY!
NEXT TIME you are near SHILLINGTON PA...maybe headin' out to CABELAS??? DO yourself a FAVOR and stop by Fred's Music and Barbecue Supply. Be SURE to ask for CORI (Fred's daughter)- who was patient enough to hang out with SWEATHOGS all night! She will point you in the right direction with a SMILE.
Hey FRED...ROCK ON...we'll see you "On the Road again..UP on the STAGE!"
|TELL YOU WHAT style!|
YOURS in SMOKE~~
