    OK just wanted to announce to all those attending that the agenda is set for the 2021 Fall Texas Meat-Up next week in Rockdale. It goes something like this;

    Thursday - 10-21 - Early arrivals at the Rainbow. No set agenda but I heard through the grapevine that PJ will be showing his new line of paper plates while balancing on a beach ball in his boxers. But that's currently a rumor and not a confirmed event.

    Friday - 10-22 - Lunch is open, make your own plans. 5pm (or so) cocktails at the Rainbow. We'll announce the spot when we're up there. 7pm is dinner at Brett's Backyard BBQ (5 minutes down the road from the Rainbow). We are renting his backyard location, weather looks favorable. Several things to be aware of;
    • BYOB - we opted for this rather than having an exorbitant bar setup by the host. They will have drink setups available and some sort of soft drinks.
    • Menu items: Brisket, Pork Ribs and Pico Sausage for the meats; Tater Tot Casserole, Jalapeño Cream Corn, Brisket Beans for the sides.
    • Entertainment - a jukebox as well as Uncle Bob and PJ doing a harmonica duet. Originally it was in their pajamas but I told them to clean it up for the ladies !!!
    • Cost is $30/person. Troutman will front the cost with Brett's so see him with cash please.
    • Post dinner hot toddies back at the Rainbow.
    Saturday - 10-23 - Open, make your own plans. There may be some spontaneous groups heading to out of town venues like last spring. Snow's (as everyone is probably aware) is 30 minutes away. Of course plan on getting up at 3 am to get in line !! For myself I may opt for the health spa in PJ's room and sweat off the hangover from the night before

    Sunday - 10-24 - For those who are staying, Brett Fest. Over 700 attendees and 49 pitmasters from all over the State. I realize most everyone will be leaving but those staying be sure you have your tickets (if there are any left).

    We've tried to make this as structured as need be to encourage a group gathering yet leaving it loose enough to let you wander off on your own and explore one of the great bbq regions of the universe. I for one am excited and hope we have an even better time than last spring. See you all next weekend, it's going to be EPIC !!!!

      We're soooo looking forward to this! Thanks Steve and PJ for all the pre-event work. Are there any plans for Saturday night or will that be worked out Friday night as well? PS. Steve, do you accept payment in Pesos? ¡Viva la Tejas!

      Looks like a great weekends fun, of course I'd love to be there but the thought of another 2 to 3 hour line up at US Immigration at Toronto airport plus another round of plague testing has turned me sour on cross border anything for awhile.
      Can't even drive across yet apparently Nov 2 or 8th???? the border opens for Cdn's to enter the US.
      No promises but will look at next fall, Mrs. Fool will be retired and hasn't seen her family in Dallas for a few years now.
      If we can link up with the Southwest Classic weekend with the next falls Texas Meat Up we will give it a go on making one.
      Have fun, try not to eat too much and please don't drink and drive.
      yer pal, Brad
