Why not take it to the next level and find a great BBQ restaurant? Imagine how much drinking time you'd have then.

I don't know where I go from here, I just know that I'm still not ready to get rid of my beloved Texas Trio just yet so she just sits there while I continue to experiment with 'pellet cookery'

To be perfectly honest with everyone, I'm writing this while a 7 pound bone-in pork butt is smoking over a blend of Apple, Maple, and Cherry hardwood pellets. So far I’ve smoked a 3 pound beef roast over Jack Daniels Blend Pellets - and it came off the grill tasting like a medium rare steak. Sliced thin, and piled high on pretzel buns with a dab of horseradish and some melted cheese - we had roast beef sandwiches that rivaled the Arby's Beef and Cheddar. Two racks of 3-2-1 Memphis style baby backs came out so succulent and juicy that they looked like they had been brushed with BBQ sauce.

I know some will judge me - so be it – those are the limits of YOUR life while you rule over your own little kingdom of BBQ prejudice and a sour bigotry towards alternative cookstyles. I prefer diversity and inclusion when it is time to cook succulent juicy delicious smoked meats in a judgment free dining room.
My kitchen is your safe space if you dare enter!
OMG....I'm jealous...Now that is some "Big Drip" succulent smoked meats.....I'd be in a meat coma; a delightful meat coma...

I've been down that road. The food is great, but the ambiance is not only lacking - it seems that the hosts are ALWAYS rude.

-If they are going to complain about the broken glass, why didn't they just bring me my beer in a can?
-They got all pissed off when I start stringing up party lights around my table.
-The ceilings are too low to get a good toss when you are playing corn hole - I had three or four bean bags stuck in the rafters at Tony Roma's before we even finished eating the first pile of baby backs.
-The manager came over three or four times mumbling about vulgar language, playgrounds, and inside voices. I never did figure out why he was so uppity.
-The angry old broad at the next table got all pissed off when I told her kids to go outside and play, because the adults are trying to talk.
-When they called the cops on me for peeing in the bushes, I knew it was the VERY last time I would ever invite them to a Sunday BBQ with my family.

That's my other big issue with commercial BBQ joints. You have no idea how hard it is to take a nap when you are surrounded by a bunch of self righteous, judgmental party poopers.
...of course I must admit, anytime there is BBQ and booze - you fall asleep at your own risk.

When my brother in law passed out and we all dropped trou' to get a picture of his sleeping face surrounded by our naked asses, the old lady at the corner table fell the fuck out of her chair.
