I count myself fortunate to be able to live the lifestyle that I do. Between our RV travels and my work travels, I’ve been able to see a large portion of this country. During those travels, I have made it my mission to eat as much BBQ as I can to uncover the hidden gems. Sure, I could have made a list of the top BBQ joints in Texas.

So without further delay, here is my top 5 list of BBQ joints in places where you’d least expect them: Continue reading “My Top 5 BBQ Joints in Unexpected Places”

Those who keep a close eye on me know that I like my bourbon nearly as much as I like my BBQ. In fact, my first introduction to bourbon was through Four Roses Single Barrel.
