Well sorry for such a long layoff from blogging.I have been super busy trying to get our team off the ground.Since my last post we have been all the way back to Little Rock,AR,two reasons the first was to pick up our Jack's old south whole hog cooker,the next was to attend the highest paying bbq comp in the country total payout was $!00,000 grand and we also got to hang with Myron and his team all weekend..such great people and down to earth!.I also want to give a shout out to Rhoda Brown of smokin fatties and also all the guys from Redneck Grillers..you guys saved me with the sunscreen and Kevin your rig was awesome!.Also a shout to Mellisa at gate 1!..so on to some pics sorry no recipes right now just trying to get in comp mode and pratice,pratice,practice!..ok so I'll stop ramblin
here are a couple of pics from the contest,the first one is Euporkia's rig this thing was a converted 40 foot storage container with smokers all around..this guy was in the way!
this is Chatty from myron's team..such a sweet lady but a hell of a straight shooter.and don't let her size fool ya..
I wish I got more pics from this comp but I was really trying to do a lot of networking and drinking beer..Ha HA..anyway we picked up our buddy Josh that lives in Oklahoma and on the way back we stayed with him and his family and got to check out his very cool surroundings..this is old town Guthrie,ok
Later that evening we went into Oklahoma City to eat at Cattleman's at the old stockyards.then we stopped by the OKC bombing memorial..it was a sombering experience to stand there and to think one of our own did this terrible act..a sad day in our history for sure!
these chairs represent those that were killed that day..the saddest part is the little ones they represent little kids
look at these cowboys..thought this was funny but you gotta have boots in Oklahoma.so much red dirt it's like paint
the next day on our way out of town we stopped by the oldest bar in Oklahoma,not to drink but to eat their world famous fried chicken.The place is called Eischen's in Okarche it's been there since 1896.
at some point it burned down(can't rember the date) and this is all that is left
well we had a great time..thank's again Candace and Josh and sweet little Ali!..And I truly see why the only thing you miss here is us
now once we made it back we have been cooking it up every weekend,my dad has been working on our logo's and Moe's mom has been doing embroidery on aprons and shirt's,our buddy Larry is working on our web page,the whole Miranda family has been helping in many ways too..thanks to all of you for all the love and support!
well we're about to hit three comps in the next two months so i'll be very busy..I'll try to keep up this blog more often too!
