We decided to keep it simple again this year and have a good old fashioned BBQ.
As always i will supply the food and just ask for a donation of what ever you feel the food was worth or what you can afford.

As always we start with a good breakfast,Denny's treated us right last year so lets do it again this year.

I got some sad news over the weekend.
Those of you that attended last years BBQ will surely remember Tom & Cathy. Tom has been battling cancer, he lost the fight and passed away Wednesday April 2nd.
Tom will be missed, Thoughts & Prayers go out to Cathy and his entire family.
Tom is the 2nd person on the right with Cathy sitting next to him.

I really wanted to make this one, but recent family events make it impossible. We really plan on spending a week on Fla this year and will certainly try to hook up with you while there Ken. Wish us luck.

Re: Florida BBQ 2014 {April 12th} - 04/11/14 02:47 PM

Well be there later this evening. Got some things to take care of before we head out. Sitting in the eye doctor's chair right now getting a checkup.

Looks good Ken, unfortunately it doesn't appear that I will be able to make it as well.

Hopefully next year.

Re: Florida BBQ 2014 {April 12th} - 04/12/14 11:26 AM

OMG What a day yesterday was.
After getting at 4am to get the food started i spent the day getting the decks and yard cleaned up from all the pollen and getting things set up.
Jim & Linda were suppose to get in from Daytona about 3:30.
About 2:00 he calls and says he is having car trouble 1 1/2 hours away and may need help but is going to try something 1st. Fast forward to about 3:45 i leave my house with the trailer to go get them and the car. Drive 1 1/2 hours, load up his car and begin the journey to my house. 1/2 hour down the road i get flagged down by a passing car. We pull over to find i am missing a tire & rim on the trailer. The person said it came off 10 miles ago and we didn't even realize it. Luckily we were 5 miles from Eds house but we were just past his exit on I-10. I decide to back all the way down the on ramp as the alternative would have required and additional 10 miles on a wounded trailer. We make it to Eds house without issue and leave Jims car and my trailer there and finish the trip home. I guess a bearing seized and got so hot it just melted the metal until it just flew off.

That was not cool at all. Glad nobody or thing got hurt. There is usually a few break-downs during a meet weekend. Everyone is always willing to jump in a help out. Here's hoping the rest of the weekend goes well for all.

Re: Florida BBQ 2014 {April 12th} - 04/13/14 11:32 AM

I would like to thank everyone that made the trip to join us for a great event yesterday. There may not have been many Monte's in the parking lot but we did have 16 people at breakfast and 3 more later in the day for BBQ. While i was so busy having fun it slipped my mind to take many pictures. Craig & Lori had their camera so hopefully they took some to share. We came to realize there were many firearm enthusiast in attendance so we were able to include some target practice as well. The wooden Gingerbread man didn't stand a chance.

Looks like a good time. Looks like I'll have to bring some small arms when I do get out to the Kens BBQ!!!

Re: Florida BBQ 2014 {April 12th} - 04/13/14 10:33 PM

The "black guy from Moss Point"made it back home safely.
And for those that wonder if these weekends are fun, well, "they're not terrible".

Re: Florida BBQ 2014 {April 12th} - 04/14/14 12:32 AM

Definitely not terrible... On furher review, I'd say it was amazing. No, wait, it was better than that!

Thanks for a great time, Ken. We made it home safely a early this afternoon.

Re: Florida BBQ 2014 {April 12th} - 04/14/14 12:58 AM

Glad to hear Steve.


I have to give a BIG thanks to everyone for the generous donations to the food fund & all the help. From getting the smoker ready on Saturday, setting up the food, pitching in to put everything away after we ate and cleaning up.
Special thanks to Jim, Linda, Dustin & Melody for helping me this morning putting the rest of the outdoor stuff away.
It may be small things everyone did but it allowed me to have more time to spend with everyone.

The biggest thanks has to got out to Liz. Besides her being open to having our house & weekend being totally consumed by this event she is also a huge help during the prep phase.

Already looking forward to next year!
