|You needn't be big, nor a boy to order this platter at Chef Shack Ranch|
Here is the thing about BBQ joints -- lots of times, they are run by the kinds of dudes who could double as linebackers. Meats are their strong suit, and many can smoke these meats quite well, indeed. But the attending players -- the slaws, breads, pickles, and beans -- are usually such an afterthought that it's a standard BBQ move to serve, for instance, elbow mac with an unmelted smattering of cheese or a single slice of Wonder bread.
Lisa Carlson and Carrie Summer are the gals with the big red food trucks and the famous Indian spiced mini donuts. They are the kind of people who are so quietly humble about what they do you wouldn't really know that they are also classically trained chefs who could probably work anywhere, here or in New York, which they both have done, for many years previous to their continually burgeoning real-food-for-regular-folk empire.
You see, they are proletariat. They want to share their prodigious talents as far and as wide as possible, so, meats and donuts.
