Endless Summer

Who needs a vacation when Cabin Creek Smokehouse BBQ is right here?

Our order takes two bags to hold, and Laura shoots me a look that says, "Didn't I tell you to take it easy?" But as we're packing up, fixing up sides and sauces for the road, a guy comes in who needs three people to carry several boxes of barbecue out to his waiting truck. He's got pounds of pulled pork, coleslaw, baked beans and chicken halves, along with big plastic tubs of Cabin Creek's Blackjack sauce (hot, made with whiskey and coffee) and Old-Tyme Memphis style (spiked with Coca-Cola).

I nudge Laura. See? That is a guy who needs to learn some self-control. At least I didn't order so much that we need help out to the car.

"He's probably feeding a whole party, Jay. You're just feeding you."

Rib-tickling good: John and Christi Patrick have a 
smokin' deal for you.

Still, if she hadn't taken the keys away from me, I totally would have followed that guy home. He struck me as the kind of fella who really knows how to throw a party.

And he probably knows of a few more great barbecue shacks, too.
