I would be in for a Saturday. Northern IL is about 2 1/2 hours for me. How about Waukegan? I can get a room.

Ron_L 11-30-2013 12:17 PM

We usually go to a BBQ place, and I don't know of any in Waukegan. Real Urban BBQ is in Highland Park or Vernon Hills. Both are north of the city.

I know the owner. If that works out to be a good place I can contact him.

Grabnabber 11-30-2013 03:55 PM

I'm in! I'll be bringing the family, too. :mrgreen:

Ron- Im in on any day with a little notice although Id prefer the burbs vs driving into city and dealing with parking :)
If you do plan on Real Urban Id suggest the Vernon Hills location. There is an actual lot vs Highland Park which is all street parking in a pretty busy area. Food at both locations is good though. Just preferences..not showstoppers

Thanks, Bill... I prefer 'burbs for the same reason, but someplace reasonably close to the train stations downtown would be OK.

Thanks for the not on Real Urban. Let's put Real Urban BBQ in Vernon Hills on the short list for now.

Any thoughts on Rub Country Smokehouse? Jared has a Bewely pit now and is making some amazing bbq!

ITBFQ 12-01-2013 10:27 AM

I prefer Saturdays, but can squeeze in a Sunday gathering. I had fun last time, and look forward to it again!

At this point any place can be considered. Once we have a few more suggestions we can make a decision.

Ron_L 12-01-2013 10:41 AM

So far the suggested places are...

Real Urban BBQ, Vernon Hills, IL (North suburbs)
Rub's Backcountry Smokehouse, Rogers Park, IL (North side of the city)

I'd love to host. I have the perfect space for it too! I have 2 storefronts - 1 is the restaurant, and the adjacent space is our "Pit Room" where I teach BBQ Cooking classes - and where our Bewley smoker is. I can accommodate 20-25 people....let me know, I'd love to host the party!

Ron_L 12-01-2013 05:35 PM

Thanks Jared... We'll see what the consensus is. Also, is 25 the max? Last year we were close to 40.

cmohr74 12-01-2013 09:48 PM

I'm in Capt. Let me know when and where. I know it got a little tight at Sweet Baby Rays when we had 40'ish people, so room to spare is good.

rubbbq 12-02-2013 09:12 AM

25 is definitely not max - we have our dining room too that holds 40.

deguerre 12-02-2013 09:19 AM

All you Ilfos can farking cook. I've seen it. Virtually anyway. I say, sleepover at Ronelles. :-D:thumb:
