We are going to a housewarming party thrown by two of our barbeque friends who happen to compete on "Team Bacon". Rob & Sherri are our hosts and barbeque competitors. When you go to any party that is thrown by members of the barbeque community you should expect fantastic barbeque meats. We were not disappointed and would like to share a couple of tasty images with you.
It was a brisk winter day for an indoor/outdoor gathering but Rob & Sherri had a very nice patio with a gas flamed fire pit. You could also stand next to their new barbeque unit to stay warm and feast your eyes on some mammoth cheese stuffed potatoes. They had to be cut into smaller proportions because there was so much fantastic food available today.
These were some tasty jalapeno poppers stuffed with cheddar cheese and sausage. They had just enough heat to say HELLO !. The four meats; chicken, ribs, pork shoulder and brisket were served today. Of course Rob & Sherri had to represent with their finest meat cooks because that is what competitors do. I especially liked the brisket today.
Competitive teams will not always reveal their cooking secrets but Sherri did demonstrate one of her seasoning techniques. I call this the 'Kissing Crane' seasoning method. I hung out in the kitchen trying to absorb any pointers or secrets. I was joined by this little furry character that knew plenty of wayward trimmings would come his way.
Chicken and ribs made this a complete day. What a great housewarming party. This Mad Meat Genius definitely had to loosen his belt after an afternoon of eating championship bbq. It was a great day to hang out with friend and welcome Rob & Sherri to their new home.
P.S. Bonus points for such a great team name; Team Bacon
