The couple went on a vacation tour of barbecue restaurants between New York and Texas. “We met some unbelievably cool people who were so generous with their time,’ Brian Conwell said. The people at each restaurant spent hours talking barbecuing with us, but more importantly, talking life. And, probably most importantly, about Southern hospitality. We walked away with a clear understanding of how we wanted to run our own business.” Read “DWG barbeque joint is the real deal” by the Pocono Record.
