The event was held this past Sunday at the restaurant and featured some pretty stellar BBQ. Most of the food was prepared by Rathbuns but some food was also featured from Fox Bros. BBQ and some other local joints I had never heard of (probably for good reason). However, the food in general was great.
Our first stop was to the tent with by far the longest line. Our thinking was that whatever this is has to be amazing and we need to get it before they run out (come to find out the line was non-existent a couple hours later when we were too full to eat anything else, lesson learned).
|This is the view of the line we were standing in. |
We are all trying to get to that brown tent to the left of the picture.
|This is one of the two grill tables full of lobster tail and shrimp.|
|The lobster was the winner of this event for me. |
The chorizo butter was spectacular.
|Pulled brisket from Fox Bros. BBQ.|
|Even FIL (formerly FFIL) would be impressed.|
|Ribs, chicken, and lamb slider.|
While standing at the table eating, Fox Bros. dumped a fresh batch of their BBQ wings. These are by far the best BBQ wings in Atlanta and I make sure I get them whenever I go to Fox Bros. So as soon as I saw these I knew I had to get some fresh ones and piled them on.
|I ended up grabbing a plate of these to go on the way out too.|
The entire time, there were two lambs cooking rotisserie style. They didn't pull these off until later in the event and somehow I missed it (might have been at one of the open bars).
|Some Gouda corn mixture, Fox Bros pulled pork, |
Fox Bros pulled brisket, and some baked beans.
We were both stuffed about an hour into the event and spent the remaining time at the bars and in the shade listening to the bands (you know the food is good when there are no lines for free alcohol because everyone is waiting to get more food). All in all, this was a great event and is already on my calendar for next year. I am getting the itch to do some 'queing myself.
