Don't forget the "e."

We're not talking about an adjective. We're talking about barbecue, and that means an "e" is needed on the end.

A mumbler pronounces it Water Burger? Um... no almost everybody that is from here or near here that does!!! When I first moved to Houston I was like, "what the heck is a Water Burger?!" I drove by & saw the sign... I see now, people just can't pronounce it correctly!!!! It's my biggest pet peeve! Even the people on the commercials say WATER!!
