Talking Visiting Brethren

Had the chance to go to the LA area so I had to stop and talk with some of the Brethren! I went to visit BigMista Neil Strawder and his crew at the farmers market. After a slight detour to the wrong farmers market , I finally met up with Neil.



And Olivia:



The food was great and here is what was left of the sampler before I could get the camera out!



After meeting Neil, I actually drove to Steph's, Simply Marvelous BBQ himself, house!



Steph made comp ribs and got me thinking about competing myself!

All in all it was a great time with some great Brethren and great Que!

Jeff

He hasn't done Santa Rosa and Russian River Brewing, which is too bad really.

Big Mista and Steph are great guys (Don't tell them that I said that, it'll just go to their heads )

Watch out for that Northern California bunch, however

Thanks everyone, and yes, since I have to come out once every six months I will be back for Russian River!

The guys were great, and I can't wait to meet the Bay area Brethren!

Ron, Ron, Ron, you have only seen us at our most cordial and best behavior. Now, if you want to see us with a fire blazing into the night, messing with a pellet gun, as a keg dies a hard death, two might have died, not sure, you want to join us for a Marty Leach backyard bash. And thats all I am gonna say about that. I don't remember much more.
