Local crowds always line up at Nelson’s port-a-pit barbeque stations with the unmistakable aroma of lightly seasoned, hot-off-the-grill deliciousness.  Each recipe is a carefully guarded family secret, every meal a tasty testament to generations of Nelson family traditions cooked in a special patented machine that automatically heats from both sides while being immersed in Eva’s secret special sauce.  Now tour groups can get in on the act with a private banquet hall seating featuring the grill-seared “Golden Glow” chicken served with an array of tasty side dishes.
