After our bus-trip meal at Snow's, pitmaster Tootsie Tomanetz took the time to give us a private talk by one of the smokers. She talked about her life in BBQ, about the Xs and Os of manning (er, womanning) the pits at Snow's, about her future. History. Hard work. Heart. She even got teary eyed. It was AWESOME! One of our riders said to me, "That alone was worth the price of admission." It was.
