Rules to get good service in a barbecue-restaurant (these rules do not apply in manhattan New York City or the northeast)
Please dress down when you are visiting a top-restaurant. This is not a place to dress to impress. You are going here to relax and get away from the ratrace.
1.leave your tie back in the Northeast or in the hotel room
2.Buy some Levis jeans blue-and get some jean shirts
3.Buy some rattlesnake black boots and learn how to wear boots
4.If you are on the Southwest or Texas it helps to wear a bolo tie or a cowboy hat.
5. Do not enter a bbq joint wearing a 3 piece shoot with leather black shoes
6.leave the tourist book in the car
Pitt-master- The keeper of the eternal flames,the master of moist meat,the wizard who changes the meat into the best tasting meat that you ever ate.
The pittmaster is the Chef of the barbecue joint.
If you enjoyed your meal please compliment the Pit master-ask his name and personally thank him-he will remember you when you return and save the Burnt Edges for you!
Burnt Edges-This is the fatty crusty pieces of barbecued Brisker that I love and most people love who are on Atkins. They are crispy crusty fat and skin barbecued smoked pieces of heaven.
When in a barbecue-restaurant always ask for a plate of burnt edges-the bbq joint will recognized that you are a bbq expert.
