David and his wife had said in the fall that they'd be open thru the winter, yet the few times I drove by there was no sign of the truck. I figured with the amount of snow they'd give it a break and start up again in nicer weather.
So I called today and spoke to his wife and it turns out the business is finished. The truck and smoker have been sold (not to anyone locally) and there's no plans for further BBQ.
Already it seems like it was a mirage. Slow smoked Texas BBQ in the middle of nowhere south of Tamaqua. I'll sorely miss the chicken, ribs, sliced pork and all the rest.
Yes, I'm taking this hard.
