    Last Call And Confirmation Roster For The Fall Texas MeatUp - 10/22 thru 10/24

    As mentioned here a few months ago, we’re having our Fall Texas MeatUp soon! It will take place in Rockdale, Tex. in just a few more weeks, October 22-24. We’ll be staying at The Rainbow Courts there in Rockdale. They are SOLD OUT of rooms at The Rainbow for that weekend. Myself, Captain Mike, ecowper and 58limited will be arriving Thursday and staying thru Sunday, if anyone wants to arrive before Friday. If you haven’t made reservations but would like to attend, there are several other hotels in the area you can try.

    We have confirmed with Brett’s Backyard BBQ that he can cater our dinner Friday night. If you haven’t eaten there before, it is some of the best BBQ in the state! In order to make this as easy as possible for all involved, we are proposing the following and hope everyone is ok with it. As of now, we have 17 people attending, including spouses. I thought we’d order the big 3 of meats for everyone, brisket, ribs and sausage. All excellent! Their Pico de Gallo sausage is worth fighting over. In fact, back in June Troutman tried to steal a piece off my plate and I had to stab him with my plastic fork. 🙄 Their sides are all homemade and some of the best you’ll find. We thought we’d have 3 or 4 different sides delivered to us, along with the meat, and let people just take what they want. I’ll guarantee you will like em.

    After everyone has confirmed and we have final head count, Troutman will be calling Brett for a price to cater us. One of us, and I can volunteer, can pay for it when needed. The rest of the group can reimburse me or whoever, for their share of the cost. I hope this meets everyone’s approval, but if you have any reservations about this arrangement, please let us know.

    Just like last time, we’ll have a Happy Hour from 5-7 before dinner Friday, to get acquainted with each other and renew past friendships. I was thinking Brett’s can deliver to us around 6:30 to 7 pm. There will be tables set up for dinner, some inside my room and others outside. For anyone not flying in, it’s asked if you can, bring some lawn chairs to sit in, and if possible, maybe bring a few extras for those flying in. I’ll bring some extras myself.

    Here is the list of people we know of who made reservations and said they will be attending. Please confirm you’ll be attending and the number in your party. There’s several top notch BBQ places for us to choose from for Saturday. All within easy driving distance, 45 minutes or less. And Snow’s is only 15 minutes away. Thanks guys!

    EDIT TO THE PLANS - We’ll be eating in the restaurant around 7:00 and not have it catered. Happy Hour is still 5-7 at the Rainbow. They close at 5pm but will be open for our private dinner.

    Troutman You want to post here also about Brett’s big BBQ shindig he’s having on Sunday? Some of our attendees might want to go. Also, some people might want to drive in for the day if they’re close enough. Can you include the link also?

          Okay, as John said this is going to be a two-fer, fantastic weekend. Not only are we going to have fun and camaraderie among ourselves, along with some great catered bbq, our friend Brett from Brett's Backyard BBQ just happens to be hosting his own bbq festival that Sunday the 24th. They've invited over 50 pitmasters from around Texas to attend along with at least one local micro-brewer. Those who have never had real deal Central Texas BBQ are in for a sensory overload. I've been to a couple of these and it's quite an extravaganza. You'll get to meet some of the top pitmasters in Texas and sample some of their fare. I'm excited because a couple of them have been on my personal hit list for quite some time.

          Brett is holding this himself as somewhat of a self-promotion. Texas Monthly magazine is about to release their Texas Top 50 BBQ Joints and although having made the list previously, including No. 2 in the most recent reader's poll, is apparently being snubbed this go round (politics I'm sure). Anyway being a friend of the Pitmasters Club please consider buying a ticket and attending, I guarantee you'll be helping him out and getting more than your fair share of food and beverages. Price of admission is $75/person. Here's a link to the website to pre-purchase tickets and get general information;

          https://www.eventbrite.com/e/brett-f...s-175539672887

          Tickets will be going fairly quickly so don't wait to commit. This is a BIG deal, please plan on attending !!!

            Funny, I'll actually be in central KY the week after that (10/25-30). No chance I could swing Texas the week prior to my KY getaway... but it would be great to be able to. Troutman CaptainMike

            As of this morning, October 4, 2021 at 9 am CST, there are only about 30 tickets left for Brett Fest on Sunday October 24th. If you have NOT pre-purchased your ticket and DO want to attend, they are going fast. I would do it today or miss out !!

            We also have a quote on the Friday, October 22nd private catering event. Brett has asked that for convenience sake we do it at his place. I'll be talking to the other coordinators and get back to everyone on the pricing, but be expecting no more than $30/person total.

            I’m ok with that also Steve. For anyone who hasn’t been to Brett’s, it’s only about one mile from where we’re staying at the Rainbow Courts. It’ll probably save us a few bucks also, (vs. catering) and we won’t have to worry about any setting up tables and chairs for dinner and we’ll have no cleanup to do afterwards. We’ll just caravan together in a few cars for the 3 minute ride over there. And since I’ve got a pickup truck, any overflow can ride in the bed of my truck like a bunch of hillbillies, then I’ll cut some donuts in the parking lot for extra fun.
