I had been wanting to try Buffalo's BBQ since I started this blog but it's only open during the week for 7 hours, or until the meat is gone, and is about a two hour drive from where I live.

While I make several trips a year to the Tulsa area. They usually fall on a weekend and Donny Teel, the owner of Buffalo's BBQ, is usually somewhere competing in a BBQ competition or teaching aspiring BBQ pitmasters how to compete.

I had also been wanting to see two of my favorite bands play live for a few years so when it was announced that Lucero and Drive-By Truckers would be sharing the stage at Cain's Ballroom on a Wednesday evening. Well I put two and one together and decided to cross all three off my bucket list.

Sometimes things don't always go as planned in the life of a two-bit, hack, wanna-be, Q-blogger.

The plan for the day was to meander our way from Ardmore to Denton. Eat at a couple of Q-raunts I had heard about there and then mosey on down to Kuby's Sausage House and load up on goodies from their German deli..... Absolutely the best chicken salad on the planet comes from Kuby's and the sausages are all top notch too.

Unfortunately the screwdriver, that's right I said screwdriver, you can see sticking out from the tire in that picture pretty much derailed our plans for the day.

We had made it to Collinsville Texas when we picked up this extra piece of hardware. A 45 minute wait for AAA to show up and put on the spare and then a 15 minute drive back to Whitesboro just to find out the only tire shop in Whitesboro didn't have the size tire we needed left us with a decision..... Drive 20 minutes to Sherman or 30 minutes to Denton..... We chose the 20 minute drive to Sherman.

I was in the mood for some Q so I decided to give Back Door BBQ another try and see if they had improved any over my previous visits.
I went with the 3 meat sampler, which with a drink is over $20, and I chose the moist brisket and pork belly, because I had been disappointed in both on previous visits, and ribs, because they had done well in the OKC Rib Tour earlier in the year.
