J.R.'s Blog

  • Greetings to everyone from under the black, 200X Resistol hat from your BBQ loving, OU Sooner supporting, WWE Monday Night Raw broadcasting, Okie. And damn proud of, it by the way!

    I hope you are going to make our website one of your “favorites” (that’s hip, internet lingo) as we will not only encourage you to buy some of our “soon to be famous” sauces and “J.R.’s Family BBQ” merchandise but we will also be sharing our thoughts on a variety of topics here a few times a week and hopefully interacting with you on a regular basis.

    My family and I are attempting to fulfill a life long dream and are developing a BBQ Restaurant concept with the legendary restaurateur Hal Smith of Charleston’s, Mahogany, Louie’s, Boomerang, and the Red Rock Canyon Grill fame that we hope to locate in or near Norman. This concept is still on the drawing board as it relates to a brick and mortar structure but our catering business is up and running and we will be selling “Q” out of our trailer/smoker on OU football home game days and will be located at the north end of the stadium. Check out this site for more info on how we can cater your next cookout, tailgate party, etc and where our trailer will be set up during the week for delicious, smoked meats and fixing’s on the run. It’s all done low and slow and you will definitely be able to taste the difference.

    As the voice of the top rated TV program on all of basic cable, WWE’s Monday Night RAW, my travels to a different city every week 51 weeks a year often produces some experiences you have to live to believe. I will be sharing many of those stories and WWE thoughts and personal opinion on this space. I will also be answering questions from WWE fans and wrestling fans in general drawing on my 30 plus years in the crazy and often time’s unpredictable world of wrestling. My career in wrestling has been sort of a “North Dallas Forty meets Major League” scenario which has taken me a long way from my boyhood home of Westville, Oklahoma to all parts of our globe.

    Being a die hard football fan, especially as many of you know, a Sooner fanatic, we will cover football here, too. I am not shy about offering my opinions of college football or the NFL for that matter. As a native Oklahoman, I am not an OSU or Tulsa “hater” by any means (you notice I did not include the Longhorns in this scenario) and we will address those university’s football season as well. Being a former broadcaster on NBC for the XFL (remember that one year wonder?) and for the Atlanta Falcons, I follow football closely and love to discuss it.

    Sometimes I see things in the news that I feel needs to be addressed. My views will not be concealed in gray matter. I am not advocating that they will always be popular, or correct, but they will be clearly defined and will be my opinion, for better or for worse.

    So hopefully this site will be a fun stop for you to visit on a regular basis. If you are a sports fan in general, an OU, OSU, or TU fan, a lover of great BBQ, a WWE fanatic, or simply just have too much free time on your hands, we welcome your visits. The bottom line is we like to have fun here and that’s what www.jrsbarbq.com is all about.

    Thanks for checking us out and come back and see us soon!
