Husband had the pulled pork which he said was good. I had the St. Louis rub ribs. they were tasty but tough. either they had been sitting under the heat lamp too long or they tried to rush the smoking process.

In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.
