Meetup #163: Southern BBQ Event in Venice

Hello All, Join us for a Southern Style BBQ event at my house in Venice. Growing up in Memphis, TN BBQ'ing was a big part of socializing for my friends and family - I believe we live by the same motto as most in this group: eat, drink and be merry. If you have visited Memphis I am sure you learned we are known for our dry rubs and house one of the best, authentic southern rub restaurants: The Rendezvous. If you were brave enough to visit in May, during the onslaught of upcoming summer humidity and heat, you may have gotten a taste of the Memphis BBQ fest. Also known as "The Superbowl of Swine" this is a very serious competition folks. It draws hundreds of ambitious teams who prepare and serve a selection of delicious BBQ sauces slathered over pork and chicken. At this event, in the spirit of this southern tradition we will enjoy: Yard Bird (aka drunk chicken) Dry Rub Baby Back Ribs Pork Ribs Two Sauces (you be the judge - one a family recipe the other from a site) Corn on the Cob Potato Salad Cole Slaw Ambrosia Salad Watermelon You can't have a true Southern Style BBQ without these drinks: Budlight/Budwieser and Sweet Tea Due to the amount of time it takes to prepare the meats for the grill and the size of my kitchen most of the preparation will be done the night before. I will go over the ingredients for the brine, rubs and sauces as well as discuss how to prepare them. We will eat between 4 and 5 PM. Please come ready to relax, sip a cold drink and share in the experience. Hope ya'll can make it! Heather

    I mentioned a great but very small cajun restaurant in
    Inglewood. Some people expressed an interest in it.
    This is the address:
    Bayou Grille
    1400 N. La Brea
    Inglewood, Ca 90302

    It is really too small for any real meetup.

    Thank you, Heather, for a great meetup. The food was delicious. Coming from a Southern girl, you know that assessment counts for a lot. Enjoyed meeting a new member and reconnecting with others. I'll definitely try some of the recipes if you post them. Rhonda

    I just went to my local butcher which is known for making their own sausages, in house. I got lamb, chicken, veal, Hungarian (my genetic roots), and another. They'll need about 10 minutes per side to be cooked. And I'll bring some Belgian beer as well. Looking forward to seeing y'all!! Mmmmm.
