Arkansas will always be home to Oscar Everetts, but that didn’t stop him from coming to North Dakota to make ribs for roughnecks. Oscar and another friend from the Razorback state arrived in the oil patch in October and stuck it out until winter sent them back home a couple of months later. They’re back now at a makeshift stand on the side of Highway 2, just west of Ray.
