Brisket, & Sausage Plate not to bad. Got in and out in a reasonable time.

In addition to his dozen years working for a local steakhouse, Virden is also a serious contender in the barbecue competition circuit. He knows competition style barbecue won’t fly in a restaurant setting. The flavors are just too bold and too…
