    We offered our services for the Blues, BBQ and Brew event in Holly, Mich.
    Sold out advance tickets for 300 people!
    Menu was PP sandwiches, spare ribs and chicken thighs with roasted corn, roasted redskin potatoes and coleslaw.
    Scott Fischer spearheaded the event with Bruce B, Bruce M, Paul, Dale, Mike and myself and a few other volunteers and our wives cooking and serving.
    Except for the constant rain on Saturday, it came off without a hitch!

    Nice pics Steve, and yep, was a big soggy here to for our BBQ event also! Nice steady rain, no wind or lightning, so it wasn't too bad.

    I have yet to see one in person, but I am envious. That other rig looks awesome too, but way to big for my type of smokes, an 84 on the other hand![​IMG]

    I really like Walt and Theresa's 60 on the 84 frame. I wish I had a charcoal grill on the front of mine instead of the wood box. In the near future, I may have to invest in such a contraption.[​IMG]
