ORLANDO, Fla. -- A local convenience store might bring you the unexpected joy ever.

Just crack the windows, breathe in deeply, and the big smoker outside of the Quick Mart on Orlando's Hall Road will take over your GPS.

Chuck Cobb runs Git-N-Messy BBQ, which is tucked inside the store.

“That smoker literally smokes as I'm driving down the road – to work, to home,” Cobb said, smiling. “We're hidden gems.”

Cobb recently got national attention with an appearance on “LIVE with Kelly and Ryan.” He's demoing the same recipe with Spectrum News – his Southern Poutine.

Let's do this!
