One of these days they'll get me.  They'll make me change my way of cooking, and when they do, that'll hurt my product. The style of barbecue we have here in Lexington is very unique. I think it will start to fade away.

Joint: 
  • Sausage: Very average, bland, tough casing.
  • Potato Salad: Good Mustard/Mayo mix, smooth texture. Yum!
  • Dessert: Peach/Cherry cobbler was great too.
  • Sides: Fresh baked bread was great for testing out the sauce.
  • Beans: Just damn good ranch beans.
  • Coleslaw: Good mix of carrots, cabbage, and purple cabbage.
  • Atmosphere: Big Chimneys as we drove up. Big bad barn. Inside was all BBQ. Great amount of deer mountings.
  • Spare Rib: Firm, Meaty, Nice flavor
  • Sauce: Nice, smokey, dark-red sauce, Pretty darn thick too.
