Annual Northern Illinois BBQ Brethren Mid Winter Gathering!!
...as well as these BBQ- martinis consisting of baked beans, pulled pork, slaw and pig candy. Who says BBQ can't be sophisticated?
In addition to the Cajun gumbo and BBQ martinis, other appetizers such as fried pickles, BBQ sausage links, burnt ends and New Orleans BBQ shrimp just kept comn' and comn' and comn'. Man-o-man, me and G were in hog heaven...and were gettin' stuffed before lunch had even been served.
Speakn' of lunch, we feasted on Jamaican Jerk chicken...
...pulled pork with bark even, how about that!
After lunch, we got a tour of the premises. Here, BBQ Pitmaster Deuce Raymond explains the catering side of the business.
And just when we thought it could get no better, BAM! it sure as heck did.
Here I am sandwiched between BBQ Royalty grinn' ear-to-ear. To my left is Lee Ann Whippen of Woodchix BBQ/Chef-Partner Chicago q and star of TLCs BBQ Pitmasters Series (Yes, again!!) and "Sweet Baby Ray" - David Raymond himself.
