And then we are offered little bites to sample. My mouth is watering. The Begnaud Special, which is slow-smoked brisket sandwich with smoked garlic pork sausage topped with our homemade BBQ sauce is tender, stringy and smokey, but it's the smoked garlic pork sausage that takes this to another level. Fourth 'I need a moment to myself' moments. (told ...
