Bubba Flint talks barbecue and the Cowboys, yes, a Super Bowl!

William “Bubba” Flint, a free-lance artist and painter, has been eating barbecue most of his life and drawing cartoons for the Dallas Cowboys’ Star Magazine for 30 years. Barbecue and the Cowboys. That alone makes him one of the more interesting people I’ve known and worked with. He’s also an expert on baseball — all levels from youth to pro…

A tribute to Cleo Baltimore, the BBQ goodwill ambassador of Port Neches

  Billy Joe’s Bar B-Q pitmaster Cleo Baltimore, who passed away last week in Port Neches. Editor’s note: The Posse, largely, is made up of jaundiced, old newspaper types who don’t get worked up about much.

With GreenFlame, I broke Weber’s ‘charcoal vow’

  On the Posse, we’re dedicated chimney users when it comes to starting charcoal. Simple and effective, even if from time to time I have to use a second sheet of newsprint to get the coals going. Posse member Bryan Gooding likes to use a propane torch to start the paper rather than matches or a lighter. Marshall Cooper uses…
