We got there just when they opened. Wish we would have gotten the food hot off the cooker and not reheated in the microwave!
Pork sandwich was all dried out. Sliced beef was juicy. Half of the ribs were dried out and the other half were juicy. We might have caught them on a bad day!

This little place is out of the way for most visitors, but it is worth the short trip away from the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg/PIgeon Forge. They have a strictly barbeque menu, with the normal sides,
but is is the real slow-cooked barbeque, done right. Very clean, friendly, no credit cards. Thurs-Saturday 11-6 only, and when he's out, he's out, so come early.

My husband and I ate here and just loved it. It's away from the main strip and not fancy, but the owner is very nice and the food is great!
