At the corner of El Segundo and Avalon in Compton, is the Prayer Assembly Church of God in Christ where they serve barbecue in the parking lot.  Several years ago, Pastor Corverster Williams Sr. had a vision in which he would sell smoked, barbecue turkey necks.  They followed through with that vision and it was a huge success.  The set up some giant smokers in the parking lot near a catering truck and the rest is history.  They serve pork ribs along with the turkey necks, and numerous side dishes like baked beans, potato salad and corn bread.


Eddie Lin writes the blog  When he visited the church, Pastor Virgil Wilson served up ribs and turkey necks cooked by Big Jack.
