    Gotta get to Costco when it opens today. TSY - I won't be able to make it out your way today.

    When is the BBQ festival at Tanglewood? I've got a friend nannying in the Dash this summer. Might want to hit it up.

    If I were a less even keeled mod, that might be grounds for a 3 day ban. I didn't take pics of the chicken either. I got a text message from a good high school friend who I gave some of our super secret pork rub to. He used it on a brisket, which I had never thought about doing before. He had rave reviews. I love our pork rub so much.

    I need to learn how to use corn starch to thicken a sauce. And how to buy tomato paste instead of ketchup. I think I figured out my rub though. I tried two different things and had a distinct favorite.

    Sauce needs some work, but my friends had only good things to say. I need meaner friends.

    When we were practicing last year, we made five different sauces and had our families try them out, pickin their favorites. We had a good one picked out and the day of Ribfest she brought something completely different that we had never tried before, and thankfully it was phenomenal.

    It goes against my upbringing, but IMO a dry rub is crucial to cooking great meat.

    Actually, that reminds me: I need to add some brown sugar or something to form a little bit more bark to the rub. But otherwise I have that part figured out. Really happy with the flavor from that. This is so fun. I'm probably going to cook most weekends from now until the ribfest.

    Yeah, we've got to practice a few times as well to get my timing and wood amount figured out. The wood has aged a year and doesn't produce as much heat as last year.

    I'd be down for a scrimmage if you want.

    Wow, 20 so far up from 12 last year. I recognize 4 of the names, but the others seem to have done like we did and change names or be a new team.

    I should have signed up with my mom's home address. The Nickel City part would have made a lot more sense with a Buffalo address.

    I'm still not sure. I'm hoping to leave work at 4pm that day. Definitely unsure about whether I'm staying the night or going home. Wouldn't be real hard to go home.

    I know they're going to have security there, but I dont want to leave my rig out there overnight by itself. I'm bringing a tent to sleep in. Taking 1/2 a day that day, so I'm hoping to be out there around 3:30 to set up before the crowd gets there.

    I learned about a new smoking show this past weekend, Best in Smoke that is on Food Network. They're only going to have a couple handfuls of shows, but its been pretty good so far. Nice mixture of styles and backgrounds. Comes on Sundays at 9.

    My thing is that I think I'd be down to stay the night but I wouldn't want to get a tent or anything because I'm not sure how frequently I'd use it and I don't want to waste the storage space or money.
