Got back from branson mo last sat. (motorcycle trip).
went to a "rib crib" restaurant there where I asked if I could buy a few pieces of their hickory-(it smelled sooooo good) (great bbq). I llve in mn and have been really unhappy with the hickory supply here.I explained this to the gracious mgr. and she allowed me to "just take a few pieces 'cause we are gonna just burn it anyway" She said it was gray hickory. What a lady!!
Tried some of it in my cookshack amerique with sl style ribs yesterday and it was great!!
Planning a trip to louisville this fall with a pickup truck available----Looking for a good source for great hickory for bbq-------------help!
