If my pictures are frickin' huge, I apologize...I did resize them but they're still coming up as ginormous on my screen...dunno if they're actually that way or if I need to empty my cache or something. They SHOULD be 640x480 but on my screen they're coming out 2000x1000ish. Someone please tell me how they're showing up on their screen so I know if I need to fix them or not. Thanks!

ETA: Query taken care of. Thanks Adriana!

THIRD prize to the FOOD? Kevin, wassup with you?! :)

I recognize ribs & pulled pork on the right, and beans on the left. What's in between the beans (Never Mind, that's the corned beef),
and is the dish on the left a stew? It looks quite meaty for beans.
Where are the hog wings & Brunswick stew?
What are the meaty bones on top of the pulled meat?

While I brought my camera, I didn't pull it out, such was the intimidation factor of Eric et al with the heavy hardware. I must rely on the graciousness of others yet again.

To Pixie and SDP, thank you so much for hosting the party. Pixie's absolutely gorgeous house was wonderfully set up and her patient hubby (Lyman) was fantastic. SDP and KF were gracious beyond measure with their time and their talents. I am intently thankful to all four for their wonderful hosting skills and the courtesy of their hearts, bravo!

To all of my fellow briners, I must tell you that meeting with you, talking with you, and learning from you exceeded the incredible food. While SDP clearly has limitless skills in TRUE BBQ, my life was enriched far more than my body by being in the presence of my briner family.

Oh, and I've got to tell you that if you do not request that SDP smoke corned beef at each and every gathering, you do not understand the the culinary heights are only met by such succulent and savory perfection. I doubt anything less will ever qualify as BBQ again in my book.

Thank you to one and all who participated! I can't wait for our next meeting!

Eric loaned me 2 of his lenses and now I have to go buy more camera equipment.

I'll post a few more before I head out to breakfast, then home.

I just want to say if any of you are ever invited to a briner meet, GO.

These are good people. Thanks to everyone.

I had such a great time...

To Pixie...Thank you for opening your beautiful house and grounds, and letting us take over.

To Slam...You are definitely The Man....The BBQ Man.

To GWilson....Thank you for chauffering people around, and letting me follow you to the restaurant. You are so much FUN to follow...but, I'll say no more....

And many thanks to everyone else who made me (a newbie) feel welcome and accepted right from the start. I had a great tiime, and met a wonderful group of kind, generous people. I feel like I have a whole bunch of new best friends.

And the FOOD !!! As a neophyte in the kitchen, I was certainly impressed. I ate until I had to go home and take a nap.

I can hardly wait for the next gathering...

I had a great time. Thanks to everyone for traveling to make this event wonderful. I wish the weather had cooperated, it would have been great to have been out on the lawn rather than in the garage. The briners were wonderful to pitch in and help out with moving everything indoors so we didn't have to eat in the rain.

There are a number of amazing things that happened this weekend, and I'm sure some of them will get told here.

Special thanks to Slam and his lovely Kitty Fixer. It's been great spending the weekend with you both and the food was amazing. You've converted me to a spare ribs lover.

Thanks also to everyone who brought a camera. I was too busy yesterday to take pictures.

I want to add in my profoundest thanks to Pixie and Lyman for lodging me (and letting me inflict chorizo burgers on them) and to Slam and Kittyfixer for providing the most impressive main event I've yet seen at a Briner Meet.

Slam, pal, I don't admit this very often, but I can learn a lot from you when it comes to 'cue. I plan to do so.

It was very exciting getting to put faces with names and
having some really great conversations.

I really had a blast. Am looking forward to doing this again!!!

It was fun to have you all here for breakfast this morning as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjRklVfny2A

Here we are
Here we are
Here we are
Here we are

Who would have thought this game, this flame would still be burning
Who would have guessed that all these blenders would still be churning
Not even we on our bended knees could have ever blessed it
Not even I with my head in the sky would have ever guessed it

But here we are, for a family reunion, costume barbeque
All the black sheep, family outcasts, and a freak or two

No the hat tricks and the gold bricks still don't have us down
Still a party for the hearty when we come to town
You're still grinning and we're still winning, nothing left to say
Death Defying as I go flying down this endless wave

And here we are, we're the offbeat Uncle Freds who spill their wine on you
And the in-your-face Aunt Rachels with an attitude
All the ones that use your bathroom then eat all your food
We're the dreamy Deadheads who just like us and Dave Matthews

Here we are, maybe it's because in spite of all the work we do
It's the child in us we really value
Here we are, with our fins up and our feathers flashing
Here we are, with our coconut shell brassieres chanting

Here we are
Here we are
Here we are
Here we are
Here we are
Here we are

hahaha! great pics, so far! thanks everyone who already chimed in.

i have to ask, though, what happened to the rest of the tillamook cheese? i waited too late to "acquire" a leftover hunk.

biggest thanks go out to the hosts of the weekend, being the "toes" family and the powerteam of slamdunkpro and kittyfixer. the toes were generous enough to open their home and bed to people they've never "met" and the pros donated and obscene amount of livestock to the fest. crazy awesome.

i have but a few pics to post soon, but were not taken until i got home. i'll post more later, but our show just came on.

Dena and I had a wonderful time Sunday. Thanks to Pixie and Slam for putting it together. Pixie's house is beautiful and Slams meat is to die for :D . I don't know when I have eating more meat at one meal :wink: .

My camera was on the fritz so I did not get to take any pictures.

Breakfast at the Skillet Monday was also wonderful (as usual).

After a 2.5 hour delay at ATL (they had to replace one of the windows in the cockpit. Seemed like a good enough reason), I finally got home, safe and sound, tired but happy.

I echo everyone else's thanks to Pixie & Family for being such wonderful, gracious and friendly hosts and to Slam & Kittyfixer for the WONDERFUL variety of BBQ. Wow. Just...wow. And you just do that for a hobby???

I'd also like to thank everyone for being exactly as I thought they would be and, for many, even better than that! What a wonderful family of friends I have stumbled upon and I thank myself, over and over, for seeing that "GEFP" bookmark back in January and thinking, "I haven't been on the board in a long, long time. Why don't I take a look and see what's going on?". I promise I will never leave again.

Hubby Joe is happy I had such a good time with my "second cult" ("first cult" is my chorus). I'm trying to get him to join...I think he would enjoy himself here and the travel/meeting possibilities that can sometimes go along with the membership.

I have many more pictures to post, once the battery in my camera is done recharging and I get them dumped and sorted. They will not be ginormous, LOL!

My 2 requests are for Fleur: What was the sig about cynicism that we decided was good for me? And to EricE: I want that animated GIF of me and Mongo. BADLY! I may want to use it as my avatar. Thanks!

Pics later...

What a wonderful weekend!

First off, I would like to thank Pixie and Slam for hosting the event. They worked hard and deserve all the accolades!

Second, I think Kinsleys online persona is a front! He is a great guy! He even hugged my neck!

Mongo is a mountain of a man with hands the size of dinner plates! :shock: He can watch my back in a bar fight anytiime.

Pari and Beenie are sweethearts! What a cute couple!

Fleur, LittleBit, Jay Von, Greg, Shawn, Holly and the rest, what a wonderful group of folks. I'm proud to call you all my friends.

Plus, not only have I been kissed by a Pixie, I kissed a Caveman. :lol:
