Practice run for my first "catering gig"
My daughter asked if I would host a casual graduation party for her and some friends, and of course BBQ. Her mom is throwing the "real" party, with a theme, and a hot dog bar, and family, and her co-workers, and basically the kind of party only my ex can throw.... :crazy:

So, my daughter asked if i would just barbeque for her and some friends, which of course I gladly agreed to.

(I look like I'm having a stroke, but.. ) Who could say no to this??

Today is the practice run. MOINK balls, brats, kielbasa, and a fatty (I will add brisket and ribs for the real party)

Step One - MOINK balls rolled and rubbed -

Store brand meatballs, rolled in thick cut peppered bacon, and dusted with The Missus's secret rub recipe (secret from me. She doesn't want me "tweaking" it)

Updates to follow...

Good luck with the venture it hard to beat a good BBQ party. Hotdogs are fine BBQ devine.

Step Two - Fattie. Made with Kevin's home made Jalapeno Cheese sausage. Sprinkled with the same rub

Just got everything in the offset. Not gonna look for at least 30 minutes.

Brats and kielbasa will go on later

Looks good so far.

I will have my first catering job on July 20th, I'm doing my nephews Bday party.

Let us know how it goes ok?

Is that a letter for academics, or is her school called Academics? She must be pretty smart as well as beautiful to have earned an Block A for academics. You are gonna need more MOINKs

MOS95B 05-23-2010 07:23 PM

The fattie is plain, just whatever ingredients Kevin put in the sausage and a little rub.

And yes, she lettered in Academics her senior year, and earned a $1000 scholarship. Very proud Papa

And, back to the matter at hand...

A grill full of goodnes

Had to probe the brat due to a slight fire mishap... :redface: Too busy watching grill temps, not enough watching fuel levels. Never got to danger zone, thankfully

MOS95B 05-23-2010 07:25 PM

And finally, a nice sample platter.

Now, just gotta wait for her to pick a date for her party. And hope none of her friends are vegetarians...

The sausage was awesome, Kevin!!!
