Texas BBQ

17 Mar

A real  treat for us Texas inhabitants is locally prepared BBQ. The mark of good BBQ is long and slow smoking. In this restaurant’s case their recipe is for a 3 day smoke. One Sunday afternoon my wife, son and I took a short one hour Road Trip to a famous local BBQ restaurant which is located in Gene Autry’s place of birth-Tioga, Texas. The name of the place is Clark’s Outpost. It is located in a town with a population less than my sons high school graduating class. As you can tell it is nothing to write home about. But the food is wonderful.

I have never tried to make an edited and titled movie before so this is entirely experimental. If you have never been to Texas and find yourself wondering what the landscape is like this will give you some of the local color. A local expression goes like this: “There is nothing between Texas and Canada except for some barbed wire fence”. And that seems to be the case. I hope this isn’t too boring 🙂 Total length is about 3 minutes or so.

BTW, that is Gene Autry himself singing Deep in the Heart of Texas. After movies and other cowboy stuff he eventually owned the Anaheim Angels baseball team.

Thanks for reading my Blog. Best, Chas W7MAP/5
