Well, my ribs were awful – dry and tasteless. Next time, I will ask for some advice from the Roadfood Ribmeisters before proceeding. On Sunday, I got a windfall of Vidalia onions, and ended up making them stuffed with bacon and chopped mushrooms and swiss cheese on top instead of the mushroom kabobs. I never knew an onion could taste so good so it sort of made up for the ribs.
So, everyone, how did it go? What turned out great and what didn’t? Learn any valuable lessons? I learned to have plenty of ladles and serving spoons out, and not make anything I couldn’t prepare the day before. My big red oil drum BBQ was like a fine automobile, perfect! The peppers were even better than I expected: Chop prosciutto and fry til crispy, mix with diced provelone and Ricotta cheese. Stuff into hollowed-out cherry peppers, bake at 400 for about 20 minutes. I highly recommend them.
I finally got power back as it had been off since the tornado. I am gonna keep the menu the same as I had before: Pork Butte, burger and chicken on the grill, Brisket on the smoker and the great potato sald recipe supplied by all the roadfoood.com readers, creamy coleslaw, baked beans and a strawberry cake.

It is tough wandering around aimlessly instead of dragging my tail to work each day, but I force myself!!! Retirement and roadtrips are the curse of the Working Class! [:D][:D] Our family cookout will be Labor Day, We are off to see the River country!!
I’d love to be able to work if we got overtime for it..but I’ll just have to be satisfied with a paid day off 🙂
I Have To Work!!![xx(]But The Money’s Good!
It is a potluck, so other people are bringing hot wings, beans and dessert, plus more meats to BBQ. I am making:
Italian cherry peppers stuffed with prosciutto and provelone, potato salad, Grilled zucchini and red peppers, corn, BBQ chicken, burgers and Johnsonville brats.
We are having baby back ribs, grilled red potato slices, something we call colorful coleslaw (with a non-mayo drsessing), mushroom kabobs, grilled strawberry sundaes and pecan icebox cookies for dessert.
