Us against the world on Rudy’s barbecue

In the entire history of world conflict, there are moments when one side is badly outnumbered by the other. Sparta, Custer, the Alamo. The defiant courage of these warriors, when faced with nearly impossible odds, is admirable.

Here at Oinkety, we, too, hear the thundering march of the advancing horde: It seems that people like Rudy’s “Country Store” and Bar-B-Q, including The Gazette’s dining reviewer.

This doesn’t mean that we’re backing off on our hotly contested earlier thoughts, no. Just pointing out that when it comes to barbecue opinions, you must be prepared for battle.
