Phil -

a couple places you might consider checking out time permitting:

1. Johnny Rebs - Long Beach Blvd (don't get the brisket)
2. Papa's BBQ - Long Beach or Los Alamitos (ORDER the Tri-tip)
3. Bodacious BBQ - Carson i think (never ate there - heard they do some good stuff)
4. Hangar Inn Manhattan Beach

Think you're correct ChiBill. I was looking over the member list this morning and noticed the Janitor only has 9 posts and it's been a hell of a long time since he pulled his head out of the terlet to look around. So I sent the bastidge a wake up call and thought maybe I pissed him off. :D

After seeing this picture I dreamed I was a slab of
baby backs fresh off the pit, lying on my back on a platter.
I was standing tall and looking good with with my fresh coat
of sauce covering a secret rub that had been put on just right.
To my right was a warm loaf of garlic bread right out of the oven,
and on my left was a cold beer with a little ice on his neck.
Man I must be in heaven..........OOOOOOOO CHIIIITTTTTT
I look up and looking down at me are these three.
Glad I woke up....

Hope you guys had a great time

I'm happy for the brothers and their night out on the town. Never heard of Red Stripe, is that something like Pabst Blue Ribbon? ;)

kick,

Although I have heard of Pabst Blue ribbon I have not had the pleasure of sampling one.

Red Stripe is a nice smooth Jamaican Lager. If you ever have a chance give one a shot.
Nothing like a Red Stripe and authentic jerk goat!!!

BBQchef33
06-18-2004, 11:17 PM
hey ladies...

the poobah is back in his house after a week in California....

Bigmista(Neil), me and Mook(Vince) went out Wednesday night to Rajin Cajun in hermosa beaach.. MoFo was coming but he wussed out. :) First think mista did was order a bowl of gator. looked at me and said "U eating gator". Well I aint saying no to no one wearing a superbowl ring(kinda). Gator was good, kinda like chicken flavor calimari. Then i got the bright idea of the Sefood sampler appitizer with craqwfish, catfish and shrimp... we chowed down on that for a while, then the waitress comes for our order. My brain being bigger than my sotmach ordera a bowl of gumbo and a shrimp creole platter, with jambalaya and beans. Damn, i been on Atkins for a year, cant eat that mcuh. I ate more that night than i usually do in 2 days. Got back to the hotel and passed out face down fully dressed on the bed till morning. Gut was so big that it had my butt in the air waiting for someone to stick a flag in it and stake claim. That aint a pretty site..

another lesson I learned about Los angeles. Mexican / tex-mex is big there... lots of great authentic stuff.... But there is not one restaurant in L.A. that will serve a Burrito that is fit for the consumption of ONE human being. 4 Maybe, but not one. Burritos come in the various sizes that can are compared to things like office furniture and SUV's. The may as wel come with wheels, cause ya cant carry sonme of them suckers out. I attempted to finish a butito that would not fit in the back of my rented mustang. :wink: Tacos on the other hand are little handfuls that you just pop like buffalo turds or white castles.

thursday night SoCalcraigster came out of Lurk mode. We set up to meet in Westwood, a UCLA college town. Called Mista, who was all up for it soon as he got the kitchen pass form MrsMista. Met her from from the convertable as she waved form the Balcony. Hey MrsMistA!!!!.. IM taking your man to a college town loaded with 19-22 year old ladies in skimpy outfits. !! :twisted: Mook was layin low.. Mofo chose to spend the night upgrading a PC instead of eating... tsk tsk..(wuss again.. :wink: ) After wandering around this place loaded with college girls in miniskirts and realized we are old enuf to be A- their father. B - their chaparone(sp) c - horny old oggling perverts. D - sugar Daddy.

We wished for D but were just C.

Night consisted of hangin, bullshootin, eatin at a burger joint in one place and a load of chicken wings in another.... them wings were brought to us by a waitress that dropped out of heaven. Damn to be 22 again..

Mista is one smooth talker.. he had that ladies attention.... i thought he was gonna have that waitress either sign him up to be here sugar daddy, or she was gonna stuff the jalepeno poppers in his nostrils. I was hoping for the later. :) Craig and I just kept woofin down the wings till I overflowed and he loaded up.

A night of the brethren... times to remeber and have again.. will be shouting out again at my next trip in july-august.

An as usual.. first time we meet a brother.. aint no weirdness...theres none of them first time awkwardness...... its like we knew each other for years... The mark of "The Brethren"!!!

Yeah Bigdog I have. I just haven't decided if I wanted to take up that much room on my little balcony yet. I'm not cooking for huge groups yet so the indirect method is cool for me and my family right now.
