Dr - I love the logo! Some suggested a smiling pig but no pig would be smiling while selling bbq'd pork. Please don't change a thing! I would absolutely stop for bbq if I saw that logo. Bravo...

    Dr of BBQ

    Dear Dr.,I personally would stay away from a cartoon pig
    wearing shades and smoking a cigar, and the pig looks like
    he is up to no good It might be good with the NASCAR, Bud
    light crowd I think that cigar alone is going to turn off
    people who are offended by smoking.Subconsciously customers
    are going to think your smoking while preparing and serving
    your food. I would rethink "Ribs on the Run" too, it kind of
    makes me think of bad fast food, not food that was prepared
    with attention to detail.

    That's funny to me, because I would love to have all
    the NASCAR fans as customers.And I'm sure I get my share
    but I also have a ton of Lawyers, Doctors, and other
    very Professional people. But at the same time I have
    long thought any Road Food business needs a touch of
    Carney in their operation. It should be in my mind,
    something that reminds a customer about eating at the
    Illinois, Indiana, or any other big state fair. When I
    asked Pat to do my first pig logo it was way to silly.
    I sent him back a note that said hey I want a pig in
    scrubs with an attitude, I want him smoking a big cigar
    (I'm smoking meat) and I want him to have a firm stance
    that says "Hey I'm the best and I dare you to refute that,
    come on try me big guy." The glasses and kinda One Eyed
    look,came about because I have 27 years in this market
    doing a morning drive very conservative talk show with
    the name "One Eyed Jack". I'm a retired USN disabled
    veteran.I have interviewed most of congress, several
    presidents, and all of our state governors during those
    years. I was doing Rush before Rush. But all that said
    if you think my basic logo and ribs on the run involve
    a touch of evil check out my valentines day pig.

    If it appears as Mr. Scowl that's because it's supposed to.
    I really do like them but it was very interesting to read
    all the comments from the forum and I appreciate everyones

    I'm Mr. Anti Politically Correct I smoke, I drink, and I
    live the most enjoyable life I can. Although I work 12 or
    14 hours a day I don't want to live an extra four or five
    years and wonder what I missed, I want to die with a worn
    out body, and have all my friends say how did he last that
    long. LMAO. So that's why I love my logos and they are truly
    accurate to my food and lifestyle.Oh by the way I'm Irish,
    English, German.

    this has got to be the single best post i have read around here.....
    lol, yes, this was buried on page 85ish...... what can i say, it got dark on me

      I like the logo although I too would loose the cigar - replace it with a wet tongue licking his lips. Seeing anyone smoking around my food disgusts me. Nothing wrong with him salivating some - we all do when we think BBQ. The scowl on his face is awesome.
      I could care less about the sports logo's but the holiday ones are great.

        i think you guys are missing the point.....
        do you guys really let a mascots cigar smoke on a sign swell up personal feelings about smoking ???
        every "boss hog" ever smoked a cigar, a cigar is a sign of "stature" especially in the south as far as what you think of when you think of the "boss hog".......not to mention the fact that the boss hog does whatever he damn well pleases!
        plus he is smoking meat here.... sticking a lollipop in his mouth instead would just look gay, and wouldnt have nearly the same effect....

          seeing as how the last post before i Resurrected it was 3 1/2 years old our opinions are sort of mute at this point anyway......
          my main reason for bringing it back was the post itself that i quoted, it was a fantastic description !
