Big Joe and His Mamma

Joe started in radio at the age of 15 in a small Mississippi town and never looked back.

"I'm the youngest of 4 boys, so Momma had her hands full feeding us I'm sure. I watched and learned every opportunity I had with her in the kitchen. Whether it was cooking black eyed peas and corn bread or one of her famous pecan pies, my Mom seemed to know how to cook anything."

So from those years with Momma to living on my own and having to cook for one, Joe has managed to shake and bake some pretty good grub over the years!
