The first time we get to see a Ewing Barbecue is in 1978 and in typical Ewing style this one is action packed full of family drama.

Digger isn't the only one who's been downing too many Barbeque beverages, a drunk Sue Ellen and JR discuss the fact that Pamela is going to have a baby. JR in true style declares that Pamela has had many men causing Bobby to give him a power right hook sending JR to the floor.
