Blog Survey


Although I almost never leak details or talk about possible projects with folks outside the Urban Prairie camp, I've come to really value you who visit this blog on a regular basis. So, I'm throwing this survey out to you all. Anyone who knows me well is aware of my fondness, or some would say borderline obsession, with BBQ. I have eaten at almost every BBQ joint, stand & shack in the South. I feel I KNOW good BBQ. Here's the project:

The URBAN PRAIRIE BBQ STAND. This would be a one off joint, no chains. It would be "Chris Brown" and Urban Prairie style down to the last detail - and believe me, there would be details.

The building would be a vintage barn feel with a modern twist. There would be long primative farm tables with white lace and vintage chandeliers hanging above every one. Huge bundles of fresh white roses and wild flowers throughout.

The wait staff: Females-Prairie Dresses by Kara Larson, biker & cowboy boots, cowboy hats and vintage aprons. Males-Jeans, t-Shirts, boots, cowboy hat or caps. The guys order pad would fit in back pocket, attached with chain. All would be tattooed, of course!

Music played throughout on vintage drive-in speakers would consist of Johnny Cash, Neil Young, Hank Williams, John Mellencamp, Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Willie Nelson, etc. LIVE music on Friday and Saturday nights.

And lets not foget the BBQ. Pork meat ONLY. Sauce by Rufus Teague, sweet honey. Texas sweet tea served in white ironstone pitchers with fresh mint.

So, would you eat at a place like this?

Chris: reserve me a table, sounds like the kind of place my family and I would go to. We love good Texas BBQ. And, speaking of good BBQ, have you eaten at the Salt Lick in Dripping Springs Texas, not the one in Austin--I know it's the same name, but not the same taste. We've been known to drive 3 hours just to eat there!! It's our favorite place; sitting on the screen porch w/ my husband and boys, drinking sweet tea; it doesn't get any better. Keep us posted and wish you the best!!

I may not eat meat, but I can put away gallons of Sweet Tea. I'd come for my birthday (yes, from Colorado) and haul a bunch of friends with me.
