Hey, we'll be at Jax Outdoor Gear, Farm & Ranch in Broomfield on Sunday for lunch. from 11 to 3 (or until we run out). I haven't decided yet what I'm cooking, but I think sausage (ETB Action Sausage!) will be on the menu. Remember, the ETB Action Sausage is chocked full of garlic, jalapenos, and sharp cheddar cheese. I'm thinking ribs, too. We'll see.
Looks like we'll be in the southwest part of the parking lot, near the big sign facing 120th Ave. Just look for the big red tent and smoke billowing out of the stack. And good news--looks like there's a shade tree that I'll be able to park by. Bring a camp chair and hang out.
Big hug to everyone that came out Sunday for the Brandywine Park pop-up. Neighborhood folks enjoyed (seemed to, at least) 1/2 price-ish sampler plates with brisket, baby back ribs, pulled pork, and side dishes of BBQ beans and coleslaw. Spicy bread & butter pickles, sliced pepperoncinis, pickled red onions, and a slice of Wonder bread rounded out the plate. It was steaming hot and there wasn't much shade, but folks poured a cup of ice tea (complementary!), pulled up a camp chair and gorged on meat. Thanks to all the Brandywine neighbors for coming out!
Special thanks to my cohorts Joel, Andy, and Kevin for scrambling with me to make this impromtu shindig as much fun as possible. And of course, my lovely wife for her hard work, encouragement, and taking care of the kids while I cook and serve meat lunches. Cheers to mobile barbecue!
Join me tomorrow (8/18) at Brandywine North Park at Perry & 126th Ave in Broomfield for a taste of my updated mobile menu. Sampler plates start at just $5, so bring the fam, some camp chairs, a frisbee, cooler of beer, your dog, sunglasses, a picnic blanket, and empty stomachs. BBQ Communion starts at noon with brisket, pulled pork, baby back ribs, coleslaw, and beans.
Sunday Fun Day at its finest. See you there.
For the past 15 years or so, I've worked in the outdoor and fly fishing industries. I've held many a position, from operations manager to manufacturer's sales rep. to store manager to fly fishing guide, and most everything in between. So it's a pleasure to be hanging out with my friends from Rep Your Water (located in Erie, CO) for their annual Bash for Boulder Creek on Sept. 5.
I've not been to one yet, so I can't attest to the awesomeness that this event will certainly hold. But, c'mon...check out the sponsors: You've got Montana Fly Company, Front Range Anglers, Umpqua, YETI, Avery Brewing, and Earl Todd Barbecue just to name a few. JUST A FEW. You've got live music, beer, cocktails, freakin' door prizes, absolutely incredible barbecue, a silent auction, screamin' deals on stuff, and you're doing all this for what? I'll tell you what for, friend; to help the Boulder Fly Casters...who in turn help conserve Boulder Creek. I fished Boulder Creek this morning with my boy, Hank Earl Todd. We caught four trout. He's two. So, yeah. It's gonna be a swell time, I'm pretty sure.
I'm gonna be there. I'm going to be slinging pulled pork sliders and portobellos with sweet & tangy coleslaw. You want that portobello on a sweet Hawaiian roll with slaw, pickles, & onions? I can make that happen. Know what else? Sausage. Indeed, I'll have fun bites of ETB Action Sausage, which, if you're unfamiliar, are impregnated with jalapeno, garlic, and sharp cheddar cheese. It pairs well with being cool.
The Rep Your Water gang is great. If you can possibly make to this shindig, do so. If you can't...if you live Acron, Ohio or someshit, then just check out their website and please support their business. Great gang, great company, great products, and it's bound to be a great party.
Thanks for reading. And thanks for supporting fun, small, real, awesome companies. We greatly appreciate it.
Hope to see you there. Have some pork.
In this part of the website, I will be listing my whereabouts, as well as anything else I feel like writing about. I imagine topics such as music, food, shout outs, cool stuff, and of course barbecue will be discussed.
Thanks so much to everyone following along as I grow this business. Your patronage, your word of mouth, and your encouragement are very much appreciated. And if you haven't yet hired me for an event or stopped by the newly launched mobile trailer (keep an eye out on this blog for where I'm at), come say hi and have some good food.
My customers are my most important asset, so let's get to know each other. Like, share, email, call, text, buy a t-shirt or some grub, whatever. Let's grow this thing together.
I am Earl. And I cook barbecue.
