– All aboard the barbecue train!
Fans can hop on the BBQ express for less than $100 a person and travel through spectacular mountain views. Passengers onboard will get their own basket of Southern-style barbeque goodness with hand-pulled pork slider, a couple pork ribs, and chicken drumstick accompanied by baked beans and house-made coleslaw.
And, of course, no respectable Southern barbeque would forget to warm up some apple cobbler for dessert.

BBQ restaurant: Here is your platter of hand trimmed, slowly smoked meat with a sauce that took us 24 hours to make based off a secret family recipe and it is served with some untoasted slices of shitty off-brand white bread we got at the 99 cent store
