|Look for this sign to get your car inspected|
While we were out we decided to support another local business: Big 6’s BBQ. We had noticed that there were people sitting outside eating there earlier, so figured it must be good. We’ve learned not to judge the outside appearances too quickly. Most places in town look vacant/out of business unless there are cars parked in front.
We ordered some meat for our supper: 1/2 lb. pulled pork and 1/2 lb. chopped beef, plus a large order of peach cobbler. Guv’nor decided he wanted lunch, so ordered a fried catfish sandwich, which he ate in the car on the way home without mishap. (If you know Guv’nor, then you’ll know why this is newsworthy.)
As we waited for our order, we noticed a few unusual things. The sign explaining BBQ etiquette was quite funny (hope you can read it from the photo). We were curious about all the plastic zip bags hanging around. There were probably about a dozen pinned up around the eating area. Each bag was filled with water and had a scrunched up ball of aluminum foil and 2 pennies inside.
I’ll let you all try to guess what they were for (guesses can be made in the comment section below). We did find out but I’m not telling just yet.
