I'd like to see us start using the calendar system for these things in addition to posts here...

Thanks Elliot! It's on my Droid Calendar and plans are being made as I speak to visit with a few relatives! I'm there this year and will post photos and thoughts!

 

Dave - it's on the calendar, not sure who placed it there, but thanks for pointing out this feature. I was not aware of it (still haven't gone through the whole site yet) but agree it is/will be a valuable asset to our agenda here! Is there a way to have events posted on the calendar pop-up with a "reminder" the day of any particular event?

Mikey,

 

T'was I who posted on the actual calendar. It is a great feature and should be used by all when practical.

 

See you there, and get there early!

Mike, upcoming calendar events show up at the bottom in the stats section, I can also add a mini calendar to the side bar, let me try that and we'll see how it works...

 

Elliot, thanks for posting it there...

Dave - I like it! I've also added another BBQ event here in NJ - it spans July 8-10 this summer. It'd be great if we get a lot of cooperation with this calendar!

Yep! I'm in the spray booth all weekend... Not the best as the humidity is off the roof. Thank the Lord for retarder thinner! But I'd just as soon be at the festival. My customers are slave drivers! Only consolation is they pay really well! Many porterhouse steaks coming up after this job!

 

Keep us posted if you do make it there- love to see some pix if you do.

 

Another year... ;)

Sorry Mikey,

 

I did not take any images yesterday. Met a friend there who purchased a fast pass to lessen the line time, but have to say it wasn't that big a difference. Crowds were slightly less than last year, I guess, due to the threat of rain which didn't fall upon us until after we left.

 

All in all, a fine sample of American BBQ. Had a taste of each of my favorites: Texas ribs, pulled pork, BB ribs and brisket. Brisket won my choice, maybe because a saw the end cut on the table and requested it with no resistance. Love them spices. BB came in second (caramelized coating), pulled pork, then the texas style (which I happened to like best last year.)

 

If my son doesn't have too much homework today, and the skies aren't that threatening, perhaps I'll have to head back there today.

 

Several fun hours that I look forward to each year.

 

Thinking of ya, maybe next year,

Actually ended up going back on Sunday with my 14 yr old, rib fanatic, son.

 

Here's a few pictures to ponder....
