    You'll never get consensus on which type represents which condition. Well, maybe mustard, for South Carolinian's anyway.

    Only transplants in Columbia eat mustard on BBQ. South CArolina is a pig cooked in vinegar and Tabasco state. We don't open a can of pork and pour sauce on it like NC and call it BBQ.

    You mean Maurice's isn't real SC BBQ??:D

    Vinegar/Tabasco, sounds like my kind of thing. Do you have any specific local restaurants you can recommend? I'm in Blacksburg. :)

    I like the left hand one too. Will just look better and cleaner engraved, imo.

    That's almost half the number from the first poll, isnt it? I thought there were about 270 or so the first time around
    People lose interest or what?

    @Pbj ak This is a new thread for Barnes lowers. So if you voted in the Original separate thread for PSA lowers, check the initial post in this one and see if you’re still interested at $85.

    Ahh thanks guys. I’d be in for 2 on the Barnes lowers.

    This may have been asked but would buying a random lower and having someone on the forum engrave the logo be an option? The only reason I ask is because I was thinking of buying a couple lowers for my daughters in the near future and was leaning toward the aero precision with the flaired mag well. If not, I personally like the idea of going with the Barnes over psa.

    I have not weighed in because the fire control settings have not been settled on nor the actual final logo design.

    While the polls have been nice to gauge interest we really are just spinning our wheels in the dirt until the plan has been settled and finalized. All numbers are just a big "guesstimate" at this point.

    Why not just settle on the design and move forward from there (which I guess would require another poll :D)?

    I hope it goes without saying that I am very appreciative of whomever is doing the work behind the scenes to make this happen!

    I’d guess it’s because the price went up by 70%, even if it’s a better quality product in the end.

    Lowers or BBQ?

    Have we settled on a sauce recipe yet? Could the selector say: Fire ~ Smoked ~ Full Sauce?

    I'd be in for a plate, but I'll need # Burnt Ends.

    ;)

    A decision just needs to be made on logo and fire control settings. Not everyone is going to agree. Giving too many options always makes things more difficult. Just pick something, tell us the price, and let us know when. My main thing is that I don’t want to have to pay transfer fees if I don’t have to.

    Im working on it fellas, just give me some time. The logo, like I said before, will most likely be simple. CAD drawings can be expensive

    @Butter

    You'll get lots of opinions and maybe even some wild suggestions, but to appeal to most - simpler is better (and cheaper)...

    I would probably go for 4 BBQ.

    I think simpler is better as well.

    I'm sure we can find some CAD guys around here.
