Hey there, friends. Hope you're all healthy and swell. Those dang Covid numbers are creeping back up there, so play it safe out there. Speaking of, doesn't look like ETB will be going back to public events this year, with the spike in cases. Just doesn't make any sense.
Instead, we'll keep on truckin' with our driveway cooks and curbside pickup. Even though that wasn't the business plan for late summer, 2021, I'm still very grateful that I get to cook for so many excellent people.
That said, "Lotta Pig Sunday" is right around the corner on August 22.. Racks of StL-style ribs and pulled pork sliders are on the smoker, and we're almost full! Right now, I've got two more spots on the cooker for ribs--and at a friendly donation of $20 a rack, that ain't a bad deal. If you'd like some sliders, I'm humbly asking for donations of $3 per slider or $8 for three. You get onions and pickles on that pulled pork if you want, and they're on Kings Hawaiian rolls. Mmmmm, boy. I might make slaw, haven't decided yet. Curbside pickup is roughly between 3pm and 4pm. I'll buy the beer.
Thanks again folks! You are top notch!
I am Earl. And I cook barbecue.
