Normally, we try to have the Harvest BBQ but time just didn't allow it last year...so a Spring BBQ it is! We wanted to celebrate our success at the Sam's Club National BBQ Tour Finals in Bentonville AR last October and Crystal's 50th birthday. Hey, any reason is good reason to cook a pig...right.
You have to have more than just the ribs on the piggy...so how about 12 more.
We cooked 40 pounds of chicken and 5 briskets as well.
Dad was in charge of the "pig distribution services"...does that sound all official or what.
Throw in some sides, and seating for 100 or so friends and family, a gorgeous day and you've got a great celebration.
Thanks to everyone who came to share in the festivities, to our family that always goes above and beyond when it comes to helping out and lending a hand. We love you guys! Thanks to Shawn at Advanced Pro...he sponsored the pig!
Scott's co-worker, Jimmy wanted to learn more about barbecue and did he ever! He came over Saturday afternoon for all the meat trimming, got his hands dirty in the pig, and watched the pits until 5am when the briskets went in. Then he was back before the party started and stayed to help clean up too. What a trooper...we love ya man!
Those that didn't make it, we missed you. We hope you can come join us at the next one.
