As I mentioned in my previous post, today I got to meet up with several great people this afternoon. I traveled about an hour northeast on I-85 to meet up with Cyndi (and her son), John (and his son), and Fred (who won a Masterbuilt smoker giveaway on Cyndi’s blog). Our destination: Lexington BBQ #1. I think this section of the blog entry can be best said in pictures rather than words:
After John and his son left, the rest of us were treated to a nice surprise. While making conversation with an employee, he told us that we could ask for a tour of the smokehouse. We got to talk with the Ricks, who were the pitmasters manning the fire that afternoon. Below are some pictures of that tour.
All in all, it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. I got to reconnect with friends I haven’t seen in a few months, and I got to meet a fellow Twitterer face to face. In my opinion, it’s definitely worth a repeat performance!
