    Meat Up In Texas - Fall Edition Is On!

    Hi guys and gals. I really didn’t want to post this so soon and I hope you’re not sick of hearing about this, but if you want to attend, it was important for me to do it now. We’ve got another Texas Meat Up planned for October! After conferring with most of the previous attendees in Rockdale, every single one wanted to go back to Rockdale and stay at The Rainbow Courts again. After some online research, this place and this area, we felt was our best option. We decided that the weekend of October 22-24 was our best bet. We avoid Halloween weekend and also the annual Texas-Oklahoma football game.

    I called The Rainbow Motor Courts this morning and got some information about their bookings in October. That is their busiest month of the year. I’ve already booked mine and so has 58limited I’m staying that Thursday thru Sunday. Everyone back in June had a great time and we hope for an even larger turnout this time, the weather will be much better also. If you even think you might want to go, I recommend booking your room ASAP. It sounds like rooms might not be available if you wait too long. You can always cancel your reservations up to 48 hours of that weekend with no charge, if needed.

    I wanted to get this up online ASAP for anyone who missed our last one, but wants to go in October. I’ll post some more info. soon, but here’s the number to The Rainbow Courts. 512-446-2361. Please tell them you’re with Amazing Ribs when booking. When you hear the recorded message you can just hit 0 for the front desk. Good luck everybody and please let us know on this post after you’ve booked your room.

    www.Rainbowcourts.com

    EDIT: Attendance so far is 1. Captain Mike 2. Uncle Bob 3. Loren 4. LA Pork Butt. 5. 58limited 6. Panhead John 7. Texas Larry and wife Renee.

    IMPORTANT UPDATES: I have just now blocked a set of 10 additional rooms for our MeatUp. So, in addition to those who have already booked, we’ve got 10 more rooms guaranteed for us. When booking a room, PLEASE TELL THEM YOU’RE WITH THE AMAZING RIBS GROUP. Also please do not use a 3rd party website for booking. It will cost you and the Rainbow Courts more money by using some place like Expedia etc. It’s best just to call them directly when booking your room. Thanks

            Most of your posts are like verbal tap dancing, so you should be a natural.

          Booked my room!

          Had Panhead told me about tap dancing on Thursday I would have taken more time off. Drat. Perhaps the two of you can do that live broadcast thingy on Instagram for the benefit of the Pit?

            Wouldn't ESPN 666 be more appropriate?

          Panhead John You made a big mistake. It is the Oklahoma-Texas football game. You had it backwards.

            I'd love to be there but I've been wondering whether I can drive that far. After reading this thread I'm not sure I want to be there when the paparazzi show up.

            Is there a cut off date for a double room? Asking for a friend (not fiend).

            wu7y There’s no cut off date for getting a room, just whenever they’re sold out. If you occasionally check the “MeatUp Fall attendees post”, that 58limited started, I will keep everyone posted as to when we start getting low on rooms. As of today we have 10 rooms blocked off for us. Hope you can make it, they’re a lot of fun.

            IMPORTANT UPDATE: In case you missed my update above…..I have contacted the Rainbow and just now blocked off 10 ADDITIONAL rooms beyond the 7 we already have booked. These rooms will be guaranteed for Amazing Rib Members only. Please call them directly to book your room 512-446-2361 and PLEASE TELL THEM YOU’RE WITH THE AMAZING RIBS GROUP. The rooms range in price from $60. to $80. per night plus tax. If you want a bigger room or something different than what’s in our block, just let them know and you can have it if it’s available. DO NOT use a 3rd party site, like Expedia, to book your room. It will only cost you and the Rainbow Courts more money. I was told by Dan that they charge him a 20% commission on all rooms booked through a third party site. It’s also best to call and not use the Rainbow’s website to book your room. Carry on.

              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.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              The FireBoard Spark is a hybrid combining instant-read capability, a cabled temperature probe, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity. We gave Spark a Platinum Medal for pushing the envelope of product capability while maintaining high standards of design and workmanship.

              Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


              Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

              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’.

              GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


              GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.

              Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
              Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.
