Owner Greg Rice is admittedly not a barbecue expert. “I love BBQ,” he says, “but I’m not really much into the preparation of it.” But one of his work associates knows his way around a barbecue grill, and revealed that not only did he know who the Mixons are, but that he’d competed against Myron in the past. The friend’s assessment? “He said he’s a pretty heavy hitter,” recalls Rice.
Talk about tasteful understatement.
Rice, like Michael Mixon, is a man who’s come a long way from his father’s teachings. From customizing “pretty much anything from a hot rod car to a drag bike,” to creating his own Deepsickness line of motorcycle parts, Rice knows exactly what goes inside a machine -- and what you can add on the outside.
