Hmmm, I wouldn't be opposed to whipping that up and giving it a whirl George. Last weekend we cooked over 20 pounds of pork and here it is, the next weekend and the pork is still just as moist and textured as the moment it came off the grill. I ordered more of the Old Mule sauce [both half kick and full kick] and I made my own conglomeration BBQ sauce that admittedly is not to far off from perfection [...if only I wrote down the recipe ](*,) ].*

I'm ready to try some mustard based sauces since their are so many fans out there. If it's anything like Maurice's though, I'll pass. Last time I was there, I ordered an $11.00 plate and threw all but a couple of bites away. YUCK! Best damn thing about the meal was the drink, and I'm not that big a fan of Coke or sodas either.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

* While it's still on my mind, I do remember getting four bottles of BBQ sauce at the store when I didn't have any of the Old Mule on hand....

16oz. bottle of HOT Bone Suckin' Sauce [too hot to enjoy the flavor of the sauce itself]
18.5oz. bottle of Jodeco's Southern Twang [too much tomato paste, flavor...lame spices]
19oz. FunniBonz HOT BBQ Sauce [best of the four but not quite Old Mule]
and some cheap 16oz. bottle of Hickory smoked BBQ sauce [not good, lame]
added 1/2" of Apple Cider Vinegar in an 8" wide sauce pan and continued to reduce everything on a little lower than medium heat for about 3 and 1/2 hours. Anything else I added was purely in the spice category and I'm drawing a blank there because I always tweak as I go with slow cooked meals. I can guarantee you there was a pinch or 10 of onion powder and garlic salt in the mix but anything else I may have added is a blur.


eh,, the Shealy's sauce blows Maurices away,,lemme' look around for it.

George.

My wife is very busy at this time, trying to get export documents
so we can bring our gear from Ottawa,Canada to CF10 without paying
US import duty and taxes.

All the gear other than the B&W speakers and Shelter 901 cartridge
are US made products.

It's always a hassle for us Canadians crossing the US/Canada border with anything
other than our birthday suit.

Once we have the export documents, then she will work on the reimport documents
for when we return to Canada.

If all the documents work out. We are planing on bringing.

Sunfire Classic Control Centre (If I get it back from Bob)
Pair Bob's Cherry 180's with upgraded Shuguang Treasure KT88 tubes
VPI Classic Turntable.
Pair B&W 703 speakers.
Plus a few Vinyl albums, If you have any favourite vinyl albums PLEASE bring them.

What am I bringing???

Post by treitz3 » Sat Jul 31, 2010 6:21 pm

I'm bringing....."SparkyII".

Dodd MLP tubed pre
Jolida JD100 tubed CDP w/ Ei12AX7's
2 Anthem1 tubed amps
Denon SACD player
Richard Grey Pro 400 power supply
Music Hall MMF-5 TT
Tyler Acoustics Linbrook Signature Series speakers
A plethora of IC's and PC's.

Plenty of music, whether it be SACD, CD, XRCD or vinyl along with the Nitty Gritty Anniversary edition dual sided record cleaning machine, cleaning solution and plenty of other audio stuff.

Brian, since we are so close to the event, why don't you just have Bob bring it there?

OO, you'll be fine. We have a great group of people going. Just imagine what we all felt like the very first time we had a CF with nobody ever meeting each other before. I remember it because I was there. Trust me when I say that we have had folks from ALL different lifestyles attend and get along as if we had known each other all our lives. You will have a blast, I guarantee it. Not in the legal sense, but you know what I mean. \:D/
