Hello there, I'm still alive!
I just haven't really had much to write about lately. I have not done a whole lot of BBQing over the last few weeks. I did go to Big Bubba's BBQ a couple of weeks ago and it was really bad. I usually have pretty good food there but not this time. I hope it was just a bad night, because Big Bubba's is the only half way decent BBQ anywhere near our current home in Norwich, CT.
My friends Brendan Burek and Steve Farrin opened a new place in Canton, MA, New England BBQ and Catering. I hope to make it there for a visit soon.
The place is a retail BBQ store, which is something we sorely lack in the Northeast. When I was at the American Royal last year in Kansas City, we went to Oklahoma Joe's, which has a BBQ store attached. It was so cool, all kinds of cookers, rubs, sauces and other BBQ tools and items. I immediately said to myself that we could use a store like that in New England. Well, here it is.
Hopefully I will get to visit them up there soon. They also are doing catering and cooking classes.
In the meantime, I will be cooking some stuff to give to family and friends for Christmas this week, I'll post some pictures or something.
