BT's Smokehouse is looking for counter help

BT's, the home of excellent BBQ, posted this on their facebook page,

The Girls have gone back to school and we need some counter/register help. Long days and weekends required.

So if you live in the Sturbridge area and are reliable and have time, this could be your job. Better you hate BBQ because the aroma would be torture to, say, a pulled pork or ribs lover.

Tell Brian, you saw this at Hollywood in Sturbridge.

Shameless self promotion-August edition

The Sturbridge Times Magazine is out, both print and online.

On Page 10 is the story of the new West Brookfield Farmers Market. It was a struggle to get it here, but worth it.

The Food of the Sun at Spencer's Red Maple Inn is profiled on Page 14.

My Column, wherein I attempt to save homeowners from folly is up on Page 22.


I am not the only one writing. There are many entertaining and useful articles that I had nothing to do with. You can read the magazine online by clicking here and downloading a pdf, or you can click on the graphic below to find out where to pick one up.
