All you have to do, is look at the smiling picture of Woody and it tells you a lot about him. We met Woody several years ago, and the first thing that struck us was how friendly he was. His quick wit,, winning smile, and, love of a good joke is a memory we will always carry with us. That and his AWESOME bar-b-que sauce! We will think of him whenever we gather friends together to enjoy pulled pork right off the grill.
