Not sure how many of you in Mississippi watch this show hosted by Guy Fieri, but I got wind from a few reliable sources that told me he is planning to make a trip to Jackson and film his show. not sure which "down home" place he chose but whoever got tapped will be an instant celebrity hangout in Mississippi after that.

Lord please let him choose Cool Al's or Bully's

It does help business because my favorite BBQ place in Memphis (Leonard's) was featured on the Memphis BBQ show. There was an immediate spike in business. Because of that, they were able to get their name in a visitor's magazine that is given away at hotels. That has kept the traffic at a much higher pace than a few years ago. Not bad for a place that is almost 90 years old and currently on its second owner.

Guy has already gone to the Mississippi Gulf Coast and visited 3 of the local hangouts. He got some big business for the places he visited, from what i've heard.

I love Guy Fieri. I've had the opportunity to visit where he's gone before and he did not disappoint. Is he coming back to the Mississippi Gulf, having already been here? If so, let me know when and where!

Ooopsy, you said Jackson, MS. I would be interested in that stop, as well!
