Phantom Gourmet BBQ Festival

Headed over for lunch today. Lot of overlap from last year. Willbraham's, Cowboy's(I think I was the only 1 to like them last year..:)), Johnson's, "Rasta Guy" from IN..few more ..only local was Firefly's.

I didn't take notes but enjoyed a sunny afternooon pigging out...:)

A couple of points. The least expensive item at any vendor is a 3 rib (they always gave 4) sampler for $7. So either go with a group or bring something to take home leftovers..which is what I did. Ms 9 was'n in a rib eating mood...and I wanted to sample a lot.

Bring lots of money. It can add up quickly.

If last year is any indication, go early..lines get crazy long by the PM.

This is sort of a "soft" recommendation for the event. I go because I've always gone to them. and enjoy the ability to try a bunch of different places without travelling very far..but keep your expectations low and know what you're in for.. It can be fun but won't be if you hit long lines on the weekend...a lot of justifiably unhappy CHers last year.; for a good bbq meal, I think I'd rather just go to Blue Ribbon or Uncle Petes

pics from last year..which would look pretty much like pics from this year if I took any..:)
