American Royal

Starting to get ready for the Royal as Bruce, Jim(Friend of mine), and hopefully Kloset(health willing) will be heading for Kansas City around 4:00pm tomorrow. I would like to leave earlier but major changes at work are dictating otherwise. The meat bill for this is going to be pretty damn high when you figure 4 prime briskets, 4 butts, 6-8 racks of ribs, and probably 30-36 pieces of chicken plus sausage. I imagine it's going to be hellishly long weekend but I just want to have a good time and try to be on point with my cooking. Weather looks to be hot and I'm hoping the scenery is as well.

All work and no play makes woodman a dull boy.

You need more dudes on your team just to eat all that
Good luck and stay on line. It will be a little like being there for us.
Kick some brisket, er, I mean butt.

Yes, each year when I take this class I lose a few nights of sleep after it. Class is about legal issues in the fire service. It would be more fun learning about BBQ at The Royal. It still is a great class to take. Just makes you really think.

good luck guys! Looks like it will be nice in the evening for ya and highs in the upper 80's, isolated storms on Saturday.

I'd head down but it's too much of a cluster f to deal with. Have fun!

I'm paying $2.49-$2.99/lb for prime. Considering the overall investment and the results I've had in brisket so far this year(1st in Franklin, 8th in New Holland, 3rd oinktoberfest) I'm stickin to my guns. Live by the sword...die by the sword.
