    My understanding of dining near African rivers is that one can eat OR be eaten. Both?

    Happy times and good food on the banks of a river is hard to beat.
    You can always consider the Gamtoos river here in the Eastern Cape as a possible next meet up and I'll be there to share in the festivities

    It would be nice to have others join us. We're thinking maybe Rappahannock River next year.

    VA/MD Meat-Up Follow Up



    It’s hard to have a bad time at a river with four cooks and pile of cookers. And boy the James River did not disappoint! HawkerXP (Gerry), clb239 (Chris), myself, and Randy (a friend of Hawkers) made the trip. The wind and rain on Friday gave us plenty to do in fits and spurts but for the most part it let us get on with our cooks.

    The weather the rest of the weekend was a pleasure to just hang out in, cook, chat up new friends, and even do some fishing. There wasn’t much action on the banks but we did get our lines wet. The stars were out in full bloom on Sunday night and Hawker and I took a walk and enjoyed their company.

    We had a good representation of cookers at the sites. Chris got there early Thursday night and picked out two perfect sites next to each other. We had our own little corner of the world with great river views and the sweet heat smell of smokers in the air. Yes sir. Pour a nip from the cooler and you got yourself a VA/MD Meatup- Pit member style! Here’s the cookers that made the trip.

    PBC - 2
    Smokey Joe - 2
    Weber Kettle
    Lodge Cowboy Tripod
    Dutch Ovens - 2
    Cast Iron/ Carbon Steel skillets - Assorted
    Coleman Stove
    Small Coleman Single burner.
    And special guest star - Blackstone Flat Top

    We used all of them while we cooked. Chris started us off Friday afternoon with pork belly and we had something going until Hawker finished off the trip with an egg and bacon breakfast on Monday morning.

    Here’s what was on the menu. If I forgot anything I apologize boys.

    PBC Pork Belly
    Dutch Oven Jambalaya w/cornbread
    Blackstone Eggs, bacon, home fried potatoes.
    PBC Bacon wrapped goose poppers with horseradish cheese
    PBC Smoked glazed spiral ham in a raisin sauce
    Dutch Oven Scallion dijon mashed potatoes
    Dutch oven cherry cobbler and ice cream
    Blackstone Blueberry pancakes with Chambord/blueberry syrup
    PBC Three racks of ribs with three different rubs
    Smoked BBQ beans
    Homemade pimento cheese

    MMM… MMM…. MMM… slurpalicious!! Thanks for the great food and great time Gerry, Chris, and Randy!

    Here’s a montage of pics to prove it happened.
