    50 lbs of chicken, 8 gallons of margarita, a keg and too much other crap to list.

    LOTS OF PICS!!!

    This was the run-up to my Labor Day party. We decided to build a new deck for the party, and we were having 80+ people attend.

    80 lbs?!??!?!? Damn! An Excel flat-cut brisket at Albertson's here is $3.59 a lb......
    I got one actually, went ATV riding on Red Cone, Handcart, Webster pass, Radical Hill, Middle and North Fork in Park county. 40 miles on an ATV. Went back to my buddy's house and cooked the brisket. Being used to a smoker, it was interesting trying to cook the slab on a propane grill, but it worked. 2 hours later with 2 jars of Stubb's BBQ Sauce, bread, onions, pickles, ranch style beans and Heileman's Old Style, we were having a party. Looks like you had some fun, man!

    Beautiful Deck!!! What are you putting on that redwood to keep its color? I like Penofin oil, myself. I do alot of deckwork around here. The sun just blasts the wood here, warping and checking it like crazy.

    Sam's $2.14/lb for the brisket. I smoked them for 14 hours (up every hour all night long), and then did the chickens for about 2 hours. All mesquite wood.

    I borrowed the other smoker from a friend so I could fit them all, still had to do two layers of racks in the grill.

    3 on the tree; we get the same scorcher sun up here, I put Olyimpia toner oil in natural cedartone (the redwood toner was too red) on it which says it should last for 3 years but everyone says I'll have to do it every year here. Luckily I have a lot of trees and the house orientation helps, that deck only gets full sun for about 5 hours a day.

    Still have close to 30 lbs of brisket, 20 lbs of chicken, all kinds of sides, a half a keg and 3 gallons of margarita left. :doah: Lot of folks that RSVP'ed no-showed on me. Just giving away the meat, working hard on that keg every night :D , and froze the marg. for my trip to Lake Powell later this month.



    Thanks for all the compliments guys!!!
