Now I have been doing this for a long time and know I will be having a big weekend. I went today at 8 am and picked up 40 butts and 18 slabs of ribs plus reserved 20 butts and 18 more ribs to get Saturday. While talking to the butcher he ordered a butt plus 3 others ordered butts and ribs. Pre orders I like because most of them people want them chilled so I can pre do them they are for tavaling to families or the lake. I started cooking today at 10 pm and will finish Monday at 2 . Triple A says this will be the busiest travel memorial day weekend ever. This is why I went to the gulf last week . This Summer is looking to be a blow out!!!!

Memorial day weekend starts early !!!!
Monday morning I was drinking coffee at Big Lagoon in Perdido Bay and my Phone rang. A customer wanted to reserve 2 BBQ Butts and a slab of ribs to pickup Saturday at 11. Well no problem we were leaving at 12 to head home . We broke camp got the camper set to hit the road and headed home. We ran into road paving and a 10 mile traffic jam at 2 and I had just cleared it and got going 65 mph with idiots wizzing by at 90 thinking they could make up a hour in traffic. My phone rings again . At this point I have a white knuckled grip on the wheel and my wife say its for me. Who? A women. I get the phone and that glare you may die from my wife. Its a customer wanting 6 Butts chopped and panned with 2 slabs of ribs single rib cut plus sauce ready to pickup Friday before 5. Its for a wedding ok no problem. I hang up and fall in behind a Snieder truck they are governed to 65 max. HOW MANY WOMEN HAVE YOUR PHONE# ? A LOT ! women hate to cook REMEMBER. It was a long drive thank god no more calls .
