I guess I should have thought more seriously about a kickstarter with y'all....    I'm not too good at asking for help I guess. But.... I have a new silent partner...should become official o

Partnership official! The stress release has begun.  Thank you rye whiskey stash. 😁

holy cow....last second call wants food for 140.    taking my rig and rolling out to the Saints training facility and feeding the entire organization!!!   this is tomorrow.   i'll give my +/

Something tells me the voting wasn't even close. Neil's sandwich looked like it would be extremely hard to beat, especially against tacos and quesadillas.

Yeah, even though BBQ isn't New Orleans, the Po' Boy is, and I bet that helped some.

Congrats Tipsy!

It amazes me how many grown men are having difficulty locating a channel or a television show. :lol:I just walked over to your house and watche

I just walked over to your house and watched it through your window.

I'm a problem solver.

Neil looked less portly and self important watching it from outside your house.

Aside from the fact that the po boy looked incredible (and was, according to the judges), your restaurant was really impressive. Modern and sleek without coming across as high falutin or unapproachable. Both other places looked cheap and generic. Also love the logo. Especially the fact you don't have a cartoonish pig on it. And a refrigerator sized smoker that smokes pellets that look like rabbit food? Give me a break.

You also came across very well on camera. Composed and personable, authoritative but funny. No shtick, just good food and a good time. You would have made a better host than the actual host. At least you know how to emphasize the proper syllables in words.

I need to make it down to New Orleans

Also, :hungry:

You came off great. Congrats! It's been awesome watching this all happen from day 1. Even my girlfriend has an emotional attachment now.

And now I'll never watch this show again. Terrible.

Yours looked and sounded the best. The quesadilla was ridiculous - was there like 2 oz of brisket on that?

I agree that the show did not set up a good framework. They almost wrote off New Orleans entirely making it seem that while yours might be the best in town, it was kind of like being the skinniest kid at fat camp.

I pretty much knew you were going to win while watching the tasters. They liked the other stuff, but they made yummy sounds at yours. Always a good sign.

I have to question the cred of that Saucy place. Who the hell wants to go to a BBQ place where you can't smell the food while still outside?

And that host is a prat.

Amazing that it doesn't seem long ago Tipsy was just working at someone else's place, and had a dream of starting his own. Look at how far it has come, and how fast. Congrats on your successes, really remarkable.

Hell to the yeah.

While your PoBoy was obviously superior to the competition, I gotta say the tacos did look good too.

I was really hoping youd sneak in a FBG reference somewhere, or at least do a Tanner-esque :snick: at the end. That would have been awesome.

Seems like the only appropriate solution is walk around teh corner and burn his house down, then wait for him to come out. :hot::popcorn:

Show was great, GB. As others stated, you and the restaurant came off fantastic. Food looked great... Pit looked great.... Awesome publicity.

Awesome, congrats on the win!

I had it set to DVR last night, but wanted to watch it live. My 11 year old was watching something else when I walked onto the porch. After his show was over I said "want to watch a cooking show?" (He does watch a lot of the Food Network, so I knew he would). I didn't say anything, but after about the third shot of the side of McClure's he says "hey, isn't that the place you have a t-shirt from?"

The quesodia looks good to be fair, but it looks like I could eat 3-4 if them if I was really hungry. Not sure I could say that about the poboy sub.

wut?

Cheese of the day

HTH

You came across so much better than the other guys Tipsy, gotta be why they seemed to spend more camera time with you (I didn't time it ...). Love the sandwich with everything smoked and that great sauce - gotta make some of that.

Congrats and much support and well wishes for your continued success!

BTW - I am not as down on the show and the host as others. The show was ok and it was professional (I watch wayyyy too many shows on the Food and Cooking). The host wasn't especially likable, but he didn't seem like a giant dick either. He tried too hard, like a lot of them, to be funny and it wasn't working.
