We went last year and had a blast! Here's the meet up link:
It would be awesome if you could pass it along to your members. I'm sure many of them

Great source for real BBQ supplies

Hey BBQ Lovers,

I spent the afternoon yesterday meeting with the owner and staff at Lip Smakin Smokers in Elizabeth NJ. The owner, Rob, is one of the nicest people I've ever met and is a true BBQ aficionado. They are a great local source for you to get your BBQ supplies (Smokers, wood, lump charcoal, sauces, rubs, books...) Be sure to tell them that I, The RibMan, sent ya.

The Big Apple BBQ Block Party 6/9/07

Hello BBQ Lovers,

I'm not sure how many of you made it out on Saturday to the Big Apple BBQ Block Party.
I apologize to all of you who couldn't locate us. The organizers of the event hassled me about our Meetup sign, my lawn chairs and believe it or not, I was told that I couldn't have BALLOONS in the park! They even summoned the Park Police to enforce this ridiculous ruling upon me and made me take down the sign and the balloons. The picture tells the entire story!

Despite the humiliation that I endured, I managed to make my way to the various booths and get some phenomenal BBQ. Please visit the Photo Album for more pictures.

Take care,
