From: "AlChemist John" <Snip> if <Snip> No prob' with me on coffee stout for those who would choose to imbibe. My only regret would be I've already more than filled my lifetime quota so to speak. Now you're *getting my goat* with goat & sheep. I've not had the occasion but you have my culinary skills a wondering. Lamb yes, sheep no nor goat. If I recall sheep tends to be tough normally, which would be no biggy. Bring in the art of low & slow long Q for pulled sheep like you would pork butt or beef brisket maybe. Seasoned differently though, maybe go for a Mediterranean flair. The 4th of July could be a possibility. (I also do a HUGE neighborhood fireworks show:) But then, that might be pushing my days *multi-tasking* too far and the 4th tends to be a family day for most. Maybe sooner in the Spring, April or May?

It is like saying espresso is TOO strong and fresh roast coffee is just too fresh. It all has to do with the american palate. Compared to lazy cow meat, these have texture and flavor. BTW, I almost always slow cook overnight at 210F. Fall of the bone tender. Climbing down. <Snip> Yeah, 7/4 might be a little much. 6/21 or so, summer solstice? -- John Nanci AlChemist at large Roasting and Blending by Gestalt homeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast

Sheep and goat are only cooked as Q in Mexico, and it's muy bueeeeno! Sounds like a hellava party, but if John A shows up in one of Steve's CSA thongs I'm outta there ;o) Charlie ===== Do you Yahoo!?

256.9mi (4 hours 11 mins) from city center to city center [according to Streets & Trips] And you can get those BBQ cordero y cabra just 8 miles from me - all day - every day! We had a favorite restaurant in both Reynosa and Nuevo Progresso that have them cooking where you can watch from the front window. They sell A LOT of it. HEY! I look great in a thong now that I've lost 70 pounds on this vegetarian lifestyle. Of course in Vancouver the CSA could stand for Chill Some ... So Oaxca, what bean goes best with cavra?
Sounds like latter part of July or early August might be in order. Weather *ought* to be decent too, but this IS the Pacific Northwest and who knows. Texas John, can you confirm a time frame target window? From: "Oaxaca Charlie" <Snip> Not sure in time, would depend if you hit Seattle and or Tacoma traffic at a *bad* time. Mapquest shows it's about 255miles from Bellingham to Vancouver Wa, so I estimate 4hrs... <Snip> Sounds good to me! <Snip> I'd be right behind you, but first I'd make sure pictures got taken and posted on the Net:) MM;-) aka Kona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee Dual Variable Transformer Rosto Roasting Rocky grindin' - Miss Silvia brewin' homeroast mailing listhttp://lists.sweetmarias.com/mailman/listinfo/homeroast
Mike - and group Our plans are in a bit of flux for the next week or so, we will be going to Vallejo to prepare a home for sale and do some final business on my Mother-in-law's estate. We have to get some paper work done by the family attorney and should have some clear targets with in a week or so. At that point we will make our plans - BUT - we will have enough flexibility to fit into the schedule that works for everyone else. We won't necessarily HAVE to be in Vallejo on any given date. I guess the Key (spelled wrong but pronounced right) Motel still in operation? Is there a good motel/hotel that you would recommend as convention headquarters for the grand BBQ/Coffee Drink-in?
I have a recipe for Coffee Crusted Sirloin if you would like to throw that on the grill....... t
AMEN to John's view of sheep and goat! Yum! Yum! I may have to put in for the spring bear tag! Around summer Solace sounds good to me. I could bring my Blue Cheese Bread, or one of my potato salads. Samples of each others homeroasts are a must too. Les
