I copied your sharpening station idea, got a recycling box and cut up a nice cedar 2x4 to make a bridge, gonna try it out this weekend.
BTW, welcome the the forum Amy you're no longer a lurker!
For what it's worth, I thought the brisket at Muddy's BBQ Truck was amazing as was the Texas sausage link. Pulled pork was OK, ribs were good but I've had so many great ones they didn't make the cut for me. Sides were great especially coleslaw and beans. Oh, the dry-rubbed smoked wings were superb but a little sweet. Birch beer is a must have beverage.
