"Smoke Ring BBQ in Checotah, OK"
My Dad, Rick Chronister, runs a BBQ joint in Checotah, Oklahoma, called Smoke Ring BBQ. Smoke Ring is a tiny operation with a lot of small town personality. The dining room is a simple metal building that my stepmother, Sandy Chronister, has decorated with antiques, and the kitchen is an adapted trailer. Everyone says that my dad's food is the best around, and people come from other towns in the area to eat at his joint. The town itself is small (about 3500 people), and cute in a country kind of way. It's right off I-40, and its biggest claim to fame is that it's the home of Carrie Underwood. Here's a link to his website: http://smokeringbbqok.com/index.html
