    Railfest in Texarkana, Arkansas on 5/16

    I'm off to Texarkana way before dawn on Saturday! Got my SnS and old trusty Weber Kettle in the back of the van along with my seasonings for chicken and ribs. Just in case, I've packed my 14.5 WSM too for chicken.

    I sort of have trust issues! They are providing the ribs and the chicken. Should be fun! Come see me if'n you're in the neighborhood.

    Hoping for a great outcome for you and looking forward to hearing how it went!


      Tighten those grills down... I have never been to a competition, wish I wasn't busy or i'd head down.


        Good Luck CandySueQ Kill it!!!

          Agreed... if you are leaving before dawn, about the time the first cup of coffee is ready to be set free i would pull over, grab another cup and check the straps, tightening anything that loosened up.


            Don't forget to take an umbrella


              CandySueQ Speaking of Arkansas, have you been to Jones BBQ in Marianna? It's 5 hours from here but I still want to head over there sometime soon.


                No, I've not gone thru Marianna at lunch time. Been known to stop at the Edwards Food Giant for pork there though.

                No trailer this trip! Taking the van (coffee fresh as needed!), but got both cookers in the back. On my meat trust issue -- think I'll buy a whole chicken and a package of spare ribs just in case.


                  LOL!! You really do have trust issues. But that's normal, at least to me. I've been known to pack my own food to a cookout.
                  I can't stand mediocre food even in a casual setting.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
