Yep. I'm so sleepy I can't think straight. Read a couple pings and wondered what the heck thread I was on. I'll figure it out tomorrow.

As a “tail-gunner” up here..
I try to (politely) keep civilians OUT of the funeral procession..
It can be frustrating at times...

YEP. he DID! (my dad was a GRAND guy!)

btw, Rudy's (San Antonio) WET brisket is my very favorite BBQ.

only in TX could you get away with advertising your BBQ joint as:

"THE WORST BBQ IN TEXAS!"

Rudy's has gotten RICH on that motto.

Aloha Connie!

It was a big deal back then...a two day affair. We live in quick gratification world now....not saying Barbecues aren't well planned and well tended but those Clam Bakes served thirty or more and a lot of effort was put into one.

There were the hot dogs and hamburgers to tide everyone over through the baseball game and the cooking till the feast.

My Grandma and Grandpa came from the Depression era and had a large family. Celebrations were large and grand.

We like ribs, slow baked in beer, then basted in BBQ sauce and grilled to crisp ‘em up.

The main ingredient in the sauce is apples.

The winning entries in the annual barbeque competition in Memphis this year all had some variation of apple in them...apple juice, applesauce, apple cider...

The George secret is wipe it down with a paper towel when it is still scorching hot...They are a bear to clean cold..

Before wiping...wet 3 or 4 paper towels, lay them so they cover the bottom grill plates, then close the Foreman grill and turn it on. 'Cook' the paper towels for 30-45 seconds, then open 'er up and toss the towels.

Steam cleaner!

The label on the Kikkoman Steak Sauce bottle reads, “Apples.” Not juice, not cider, just apples. :-) I guess they must pulverize them for the steak sauce.

Aloha Jinxy and Bubblehead!

The very best Carolina Barbecue sauce I'd ever had, had finely ground pecans added to it. I had saved the recipe but lost it somewhere. If you take a decent pork sauce recipe and add it. you might stumble on a real winner.

Good morning, Everyone. Good morning

Thank you, Lauren, for preparing the Canteen for today’s activities. I'll tell you that my favorite BBQ is one that is cooked by someone else. LOL. And, speaking of that, there's this local company that has the best "pulled-pork sandwiches" I've ever had. And, they pack it too.

DC Metroland weather report ~ Today.....Sunshine and clouds mixed. High around 80F. Winds SSE at 5 to 10 mph. ~ Tonight....Partly cloudy skies. Low 64F. Winds SSE at 5 to 10 mph.
(Seems we'll have one more nice day before the humidity and clouds move in)

Well, my vacation officially starts on Thursday, but with the holiday being tomorrow I'm hoping the bosses will grant us early dismissal. I've already got my mind wrapped around the idea of R&R.

Time for me to make my rounds. But, you stay right where you are. Don't touch that dial. Don't change that channel. Put down that remote. Don't leave the room. Keep your eyes on your monitor. Cause...............I'll be bock!

Now remember, the Canteen is

So, come on in and sit for a while. There's always plenty of coffee, pancakes, conversation, silliness, and plain old BS

REMEMBER THEM

DEFENDERS OF FREEDOM

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT

Showing support and boosting the morale of our military and our allied military and the family members of the above Honoring those who have served before.

Good morning and (((HUGS))) EG. I’m doing good today. After all, it’s vacation time and today is going to be another nice day. Got to get my walk in early today. I stopped at McDs on the way this morning and got breakfast (and I’m hoping lunch). I had one of those breakfast burritos which was good and packed.

How about you? Got plans for tomorrow?

Well, my plans for tommorow are to simply just sit here at the computer and freep.

A number of communities have called off their fireworks shows due to all the flooding that has taken place. That Low pressure system that's been the source for all this headache is finally moving South and hopefully the rain chances will go down with time.

Still we're under a Flash Flood Watch so we'll see what happens.

Oh, yeah, I guess a lot of the lower midwest would have to cancel festivities due to flooding.

But, at least you’ve got the internet!

My favorite BBQ is the slow cooked style we make on my neighbor’s pit. He has a 36” X 60” pit in his backyard. We usually cook about 10 chickens, 6 Boston Butts, several rib racks, and an occasional brisket.

Four to six hours for the heavier cuts and two or so for the chickens and ribs. We use a mop sauce that has butter, onions, Italian salad dressing, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and beer.

We mop about every 30 minutes and add wood coals that is burned in a barrel so the smoke is not too heavy on the cooked meat.

If you are referring to grilling, rib eye steaks are the best.

If you are referring to BBQ, smoked St. Louis ribs come in just in front of North Carolina pulled pork.
