Summer is when barbecues are supposed to happen, right? Well, sorry about that. My family travel schedule has been quite full lately.
Not to fret, though. In five days, "Ruby's Ribfest" is happening. Ruby is my daughter and she turns 8yrs old on July 19. And like a good daughter she's requested ribs and a party. So two days before that, we're having a driveway shindig that should be a lot of fun. Smoker space is already accounted for, but I'll have some extra goodies for those that haven't reached out.
Here's the deets:
When: Sunday, July 17. Food ready between 4-5pm, but smoker will be going all day. Feel free to hang out if I like you.
Eats: Ribs, duh. There'll also be a giant cauldron of Neighborhood Beans, pulled pork, and I'll have the flat top out making random sammiches with buns and pickles & shit.
How much? Doing donations, if you're so inclined. "Crap man, how much do I donate?" Well, the recommended donation would be $30/full slab of ribs and sauce on the side. But you can donate $10 or $100, it's cool. Sammiches? Beans? $5, $10, $20--whatever you feel is fair. That's how I'm doing it. Pork prices have skyrocketed, so anything is much appreciated. Or I might consider trading for a delicious bottle of whisk(e)y, old rare comic books, a chainsaw, or other things that I think are cool. All I can say is no...and then ask you to leave.
Extras: I'll have a cooler of beer. Have a brew, don't cost nuthin. If I like you and you plan on hanging out, bring a chair and don't bother me too much.
Should be a fun day. If you show up early, don't get me too drunk or I'll screw everything up. Seriously. I suck at drunk BBQing, oddly enough. Questions? Just reach out. I'm easy.
See y'uns there.
I am Earl. And I cook barbecue.
