Pitmaster Pickles - Cooking for the Banquet

We have the Texas ChuckWagons loaded and ready to go for THE Big Blogville Banquet.
(We were not able to ride in Puddles Souped-Up Pinto, but if you look real close we do have a Pinto Horse in our wagon train! )

This is Rodeo Season here in Houston, and that means Barbeque CookOff time!   A few weekends ago, I attended the Washington County TX-Barbeque Cookoff with Uncle Tommy and learned all the tricks of the trade to be a Real Barbeque Pitmaster.

So, I thought this would be the perfect time to share my barbeque talent with all my Blogville furrends

Pitmaster Pickles - Let's get Cookin'!
Hurry Up with the pictures already..........this pit is getting a little warm on my bottom!

It is very important to keep an eye out for spies from the other barbeque teams..........I don't want any spies stealing MY secret recipes

Looks like my Secret Recipe Smoked Chickens are almost ready..........Eat your heart out KFC.  The Colonel Sanders never make chickens like this!!

Are you SURE we don't want to put any possums on the pit?????
Yeppers, the Ribs are ready to go!!!!   Let's get them wrapped up and ready to transport to the Banquet...
Are you sure I can't have just a little taste?

So I have Chicken, Ribs and Beef Brisket all barbequed and ready to serve at the banquet!!!!
Minna Krebs has made her famous Sauce,
 Ditto has made her Homemade Potato Salad
 Rooney has cooked up a big pot of Beans (Beano will be available for those they have issues with, uhm, gas)
and  Lucy has stocked the Chuck Wagons with extra Shiner Beers (our Texas brand) to wash it all down!!

Everyone Enjoy!!!!!

Oh.........and one more Barbeque Cookoff is complete without the "Blue Rooms"
Please leave your Peemails HERE
