The food from this smoker, a custom job you really need to see, is really special. It’s barbecue that would satisfy any cue trail aficionado, and some really interesting sides that will satisfy those with more discerning tastes. One lady I saw, older with a dignified air, held a forkful of kale salad aloft on a quivering compostable fork and declared it the best she’d ever had with what seemed to be a tear welling up in her eye. She asked the chef for the recipe, or she tried, I imagine, but he was inundated with a throng demanding more chicken wings and ribs, so good were these smoked perfections. The really remarkable thing about this outfit though are the fine photos that seem to document the smoker’s every stop.
