Thread Starter 
Going to make and smoke some sausages, but haven't figured out what else I'm going to make.

No friends, but I'll still end up cooking for 10 people....just have to eat 5x a much!

BBQ grilled chicken - Salt, pepper, olive oil and on a slow grill until 90% done. Then they will receive a royal basting treatment (roasted galric puree, lemon juice, fresh parsley and thyme, s/p). Served with herb potato salad and corn on the cob. Beer.

The ribs I posted pics of and some brisket I spoke of on MaryB's topic (stick burner or Pellets for flavor) and a small Boston Butt I decided to do NC Style the last minute. Originally we planned it then....umm, err, uhhh I went down for the count on Tuesday last week and couldn't get them picked up from the store and smoked. Found one I marinated and smoked from earlier in the year in the freezer so.....why not?!?! Got the keg of Michelobe coming tomorrow, sauce is finished and what ever else we are having is up to the folks that are coming over. At least I know we have the meats and beer!:lips::beer:

Our daughter is going away for the weekend, so HubbyDearest is going to help the son in law take care of the three gransons [one age 4 and twins, age 2], while I have girl time with my friend. She and I are going to make green chile, chicken tamales, then kick back and relax with scrabble games and dominoes. No grillin, just chillin.

I'll apparently be cooking up a big pot of something. My wife just got home from a church meeting, toting in a 5 quart slow cooker. She volunteered to have her husband fill it up with something tasty for a sunday meal for homeless veterans. Gee, thanks Dear.

I had been thinking of smoking a brisket this weekend, so most likely I'll change course just a bit and end up doing a big ol' batch of Texas red. And hopefully remember to save a bowl or two for myself!

Brisket

Hubby and some of the other marshals are on long shifts this weekend so I'll surprise them and bring them over a smoked brisket, ribs, toasted garlic rolls, potato and pasta salads, green salad and a cooler full of lemonade, iced teas and soft drinks. I'll be home with the 3 dogs and will make some pizza for myself and maybe nibble at the stuff for the guys too. Hope everyone has a safe, fun weekend! :lips:

Fried olives, chartucerie, cheese, beer, beer, paella. Not sure what else, probably some beer. Helping cook for the company quadrathlon team and 30 other lucky folk who get to come play bocce ball, croquet, and... um... drink beer. :beer:
It'll be fun AND I'll be on the clock. :D

We picked up some fresh clams and NC shrimp from the beach yesterday...

We'll be boiling some peanuts to snack on, and then having steamed clams, grilled shrimp, grilled sausages, corn on the cob, slices of red tomatoes, a green salad, and cornbread for the main meal with watermelon for dessert.

Really simple but really good!
