MIDLAND- You may not know his name, but you've probably seen Todd Brown around town, selling barbecue off the back of a red trailer. Newswest Nine first told you about Todd Brown a couple of years ago, after he completely transformed his life from drug addict to entrepreneur. He made the climb out of addiction and became a big name in Barbecue around the Basin.

Now he's trying to use that momentum to take his business to the next level.

"This is all I know. I am just trying to make it," said Brown, "I've got great product, and I am going to work hard."

Brown drops his trailer anywhere he thinks people will see and smell his product.

"We have a buzz in town of supporters saying this guy is going to make it," said Brown who's been making barbecue for 25 years, and selling it off the trailer for five.

Brown bought land off of Lamesa Road to place build his diner-style restaurant. His next step will be to get investors interested and he is hopeful 2008 could be the year.
