Hello Dave - thanks for stopping by and your insights. Just some rambling thoughts here. When you travel around the country, do you eat at the smaller, Mom & Pop BBQ joints? The single location restaurant? Check out the local competition? Geographically, do you notice areas that were BBQ crazy, cooling down? Or, coast wide, has the rise in BBQ interest been a steady climb? Do you think it fair to compare your success to the state of BBQ in the country? I'm a back yard'er, non competition, like to eat out from time to time kinda guy. And, I'm sad to say, I didn't know the Portland area has three of your restaurants (until I just searched on your website ) On my ''where do we go to eat the next time I'm in Portland'' list.
