Well...The GranPappy of Pork is 'back on the grid'! The Pappy has been off the proverbial 'grid' since May. No, NOT like Ted Kaczynski!! The Pappy's i-phone decided in May to become not so 'smart' and like that, you, the reader, have been left in a virtual vortex lacking BBQ witticism, insight and creative embellishment (with all due respect and thanks to the TRASHCAN'S Herculean efforts maintaining TYWBBQ's link to all things VIRTUAL). There was NO FB, NO Twits and NOT a single inane Pappy-post about ANYTHING. Although, I have to admit...it was nice, REALLY nice to be freed from the constraints of satellite transmissions.
Ok...enough of the philosophical discourse...WHAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING THIS WEEKEND??
TYWBBQ.com was scheduled to cook a great event this weekend, but things went FUBAR. The event, RED, WHITE & QUE is being held in CRESSKILL, NJ (100 3rd Street). The event is sponsored by Three Men & a Baby Back BBQ team.
The fun begins Friday September 6 with music, food and beer. Umm, WHO doesn't like that combination?? If you're not into that, well... The money you spend is for great causes. Saturday (noon-10pm) is an all day RIB CONTEST and the fun ends on Sunday afternoon (11am-6pm) with the traditional KCBS entries of chicken (noon), ribs (noon30), pork (1300hrs) and brisket (1:30).
The event is a benefit for the legion as well as, Gary Sinise Foundation and Wounded Warrtiors. GREAT prizes will be raffled. FIND OUT WHAT ALL THE SMOKE IS ABOUT!!
Head on over to RED, WHITE & QUE this weekend. Spend some $ to help veterans and learn more about just exactly what is this Competition BBQ??
If you head over, ask for Dana and tell him "TELL YOU WHAT" sent ya'!
