Three years ago our friends M and J started a summer picnic called “MEATFEST.”  M likes to experiment with different Barbeque techniques, meats, and sauces.  Lucky for us his food is great and he likes to share!  The menu includes beef brisket, pork ribs, pulled pork and mystery meat.  Last year the mystery meat was buffalo brisket.  M makes several different barbeque sauces.  Whatever your sauce preference M has one for you.

MEATFEST has been unofficially voted the best BBQ for 3 miles!  M and J invite family, friends and neighbors.  To attend you must bring the following:

  1.  Your own lawn chair,

  2.  Your beverage of choice,

   3.  A potluck side dish, and
   4.  A healthy appetite for meat!


Friends - J, Me, K, and baby L.


College Buddies and our husbands - M, J, and M.


These guys may or may not have spent most of their college days in the library.  I can tell you there are always fun stories to told and lots of laughter when we get together.

I hate to admit it, but J and I will not be able to attend MEATFEST this year.  Enjoying the chance to spend time with great friends will be missed.

    Nice. I do wish you guys could be here. It’s just not the same without you! We don’t have any mystery meat this year, but I am thinking about a mystery sauce….

    When meat is cooked nicely, I really do enjoy it and this sounds like a fun event. Plus, love things with potluck dishes. Always so good.
