We decided to keep it simple again this year and have a good old fashioned BBQ.

Thanks, I've been out of the game for a while, life, work, deployment, building a shop... Now I'm finally putting the car back together. Can't wait to get her on the road again!

Kinda depends on the amount of folks coming.
Of course there will be Ribs & Pulled Pork, the rest is up in the air for now.

I'm hoping to make it again, but it's still up in the air right now. I'll have to see what I can work out.

It's not going to happen for me this year. Melody wants to do something with Caleb for his birthday that weekend, and house shopping seems to have been a success. We've got lots of full weekends ahead of us until at least fall.

Someday, someday I want to make this. Cars and food, my 2 favorite things.

My wife looked at me like I was nuts when I brought up the idea. Seems she doesn't think a 12hr drive for a good meal and bench racing for a is reasonable.

Brian,
By that statement it is obvious your wife has never had my BBQ. LOL
Would love to have you come.
You were only 1 1/2 hours from my place when we met up in Valdosta for the power tour.

Unless i get talked into more this may be the last year i do it. Everyone always wants to come but nobody seams to make it. Its a lot of work and money for just a few people to actually show up.
Started doing this in 2006, had a good run but may be time to move on.

Ken, thanks again for your hospitality and all the effort you put into the BBQ again this year. It was a great weekend, and those who couldn't make it truly missed out!

Let us know if you think you might go to NPD in October... Always enjoy seeing you guys.
