I don't know if "Events" is the proper forum for this, but the christening was an event, so here I go. The event was sucessful in that we settled on a name for the smoker, "Lucille", but even maore successful in that it brought some great people together for some great food, some great stories and in general a great time. There were even some geat ideas exchanged and some great recipes conceived and exchanged. Friday p.mp, the doorbell rang, and when I answered it, there stood his usual beaming self Ultramag with a baby in one hand, and a twelve pack in the other. It would.ve made a great pic, but someone had put the camera battery in upside down. Ultra mag's new son Michael (affectionately refered to by Pigcicles as "Minimag" ) has grown like a weed and we were fortunate to have the two of them along with their wife/ mom Brandy grace us with their presence. Peculiar Mike and his wife, "Not so Odd Jane showed up with a bushel basket of rubs, sauces and bloody marys Spam for Spam kabobs A necomer to the forum BA_Loko or Kev came by and visited but missed the main food event. He wasn't able to bring his wife or stay very long due to her recent surgery (BTW, we did send her a care pkg) Saturday a.m. none other than Pigcicles himself showed up and quickly assumed the roll of "event chronicler". It couldn'tve been an event without him. We were even honored witha phone call from the elusive Tusa Jeff, and the ubiquitous Dutch who expressed that they wished that they could've been there, but wereunable to attend due to circumstances beyond their control. I'm sure that several mor pix and stories will surface here and there over the nest few days and weeks, but Pigcicles has done an excellent job of producing a slide show that shows much of what took place and it can be viewed @ http://s156.photobucket.com/albums/t38/PigCicles/ PLease click the slideshow button in the upper right corner of the window at that link. Great job Joe! On behalf of myself, the Smokie Okette, Clyde and Spike, I'd like to extend a hearty, hearty thank you for mking Lucille's christening a huge success, and for making the weekend one of the greatest time that we've had in quie a while as well as one that we will remember for a long time to come.
