Finally, the euphoria and adrenaline from being in Lynchburg last weekend is starting to subside, and now I can really start to reflect on just what transpired in the hollow. In my last post, I attempted to portray the general overall sense of excitement and sweet smoke at the Jack Daniel’s distillery. Today I want to tackle another aspect of the weekend — the amazing people!
If I had to describe this past weekend in one word, that word would be WOW! Yes, in all caps. It was just that awesome! The hardest part about this trying to figure out where in the world to start. I guess the beginning would be a good place…

Today’s “Teams that Do Know Jack” feature keeps us in the US Midwest. About 360 miles from Springfield, MO (home of our last feature team Here Piggy Piggy BBQ) lies Omaha, NE.

So is this your first time to go to the Jack? It’s mine too! I’m seriously going to be like a kid at Christmas when I arrive. I have had this date circled on my calendar for quite some time now. Again, another big huge shout-out to my friend Jay Prince for allowing me to tag along on this trip.
