    Heading out shortly, got a crappy weather day, but tomorrow is supposed to be a nice day.

    I have a 16 lb brisket, 10 lb pork butt, 2 racks of st Louis cut pork ribs, 1 rack of st louis cut (bacon still on) pork ribs, 2 t bone steaks and potatoes for my wife and my dinner this evening, eggs, bacon, hash browns, for breakfast tomorrow, and 3 kegs of homebrew. Gonna be a great weekend. I'll try to take plenty of pictures to make your mouths water, and get you thirsty for more beer.

    When we used to camp, I would bring my smoker. Campgrounds have grills!

    The competition went pretty well I'm happy but I'm ecstatic about the feedback I got from my beer

    I had 14 guys sitting around by 3 kegs that I took up over six hours We floated those kegs, the compliments I heard most were the fresh taste and it's not harsh a few of the wives came up that aren't Beer Drinkers and repeatedly came back up and got another glass I took up a Munich helles a Bavarian helles and a German Pilsner

    Not once did I hear any single person say they prefer this beer over that beer they liked all of it equally they did say that they were glad that they weren't having to judge the beer because it would have been harder than judging the food I have now decided I'm going to leave the competition cooking up to the younger guys it's a lot of work to be cooking and serving beer and talking to the guys and trying to answer the questions they had I'm going to stick to making the beer and taste in the BBQ consequently my brisket did get first place I took fourth overall out of 8 Cook's I can live with that

    I can't stop aging, lol.

    I got more information about my beer just sitting talking with everyone and hearing there likes dislikes and questions than I thought possible.

    Several asked to purchase beer from me, but since I'm not a licensed business I can't sell it, but they all offered to pay for the ingredients fuel, and participate in the process I thought that was greatest part. I have my next 3 beers planned out, first this weekend a nice Amber pilsner MARZEN(this will lager until octoberfest in late september)
    Then I'm brewing a watermelon ale (watermelon extract which I will add to the spunding keg, .25 grams per litre, I'm looking for just a hint of watermelon flavor, in a lite dry refreshing ale on the hot days of summer)
    After that I'm brewing a nice southern German pilsner.

    I have a line on a bigger refrigerator case 2 times the size of the one I currently have, I'm thinking about buying, the guy has 2 of them, I'll have the price Wednesday. I need more room for lagering. Lol
