Curtis's BBQ

Took a ride yesterday with wife and kids out the Mohawk Trail
here in Ma. and up into Vermont to see some foliage and stock
up on potatoes, squash, onions and grab some pumpkins.

Anyhow, we ended up at Curtis's... the self proclaimed
"Ninth Wonder of the World"




This is Curtis...He's said he's been BBQing in the same
spot behind his bus for the past 39 years.



His menu is pretty simple... no hotdogs or hamburgers here folks....
just CHICKEN & RIBS





Wife and I ordered a full rack to split and some collards,
loaded baked taters and some cucumber-onion salad.
The sauce was a strong vinegar base but had a good
blend of sweet and cayanne with it. VERY GOOD!!!
Kids had chicken & rib combo plates with no sauce.




Curtis is an extremely friendly man who tends the pits
while helpers run the customers quickly through lines at
one of the blue buses. He's quick to chat up stories of
BBQ and times gone by. But, don't expect him to stop
what he's doin and chat.....cause while his mind might
be in conversation with you...
his heart is payin attention to his "Q"!!!






Sometimes "Q"ing can be a thankless job, so Curtis keeps
his best friend out there with him.





Most of the time Curtis's friend is over hamming it up at the
fence edge or laying in the shade.... but sometimes they
are side by side working the pit!




THE END!

So much for "Board of Health B.S." everywhere in the world.

This guy has been doin it outside with a pig by his side within
breathing distance of the uncooked and finished food
product.... and he's been doin it for 39 years!

Maybe he has the pig listed as an "employee"

Well done and thanks for sharing. Do you think that pig has a clue what his future holds?
