Mike, you are just too evil :-)
If it could be planned, I could offer up goat or sheep (for the more 
adventurous) for you to work you magic on, and/or maybe  a coffee stout, if 
those who do not partake would not be offended.
When sounds like a good time.

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?

Soap box, climbing, climbing, climbing....
Sheep and goat tough.  Ha.  It is ALL in perspective.  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.

Yeah, 7/4 might be a little much.  6/21 or so, summer solstice?

 I've been promising close friends in Bellingham for years that
I'd visit them. How many hours south is Vancouver from there,
Mike?
 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)

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?

6) From: Mike McGinness
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:)

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.......

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.
