<p />Actually it is starting tonight. To make sure that I run out of pulled pork before tomorrow, I’m making pulled pork Mexican Enchiladas tonight. They will be served with refried beans and Spanish rice. [p]Since I will be out of pulled pork because of the Enchiladas for tonight I decided to make baby backs for dinner tomorrow – they’ll be on the BGE about 1pm tomorrow. [p]What you might ask do baby backs have to do with being out of pulled pork – since the BGE will be warm from the ribs around 6pm, I have a 7lb Boston butt that (later this evening) will be covered with a layer of Memphis rub and tomorrow a layer of mustard – ready to start the overnight cook. [p]Life is GOOD when it all fits together. Guess I’ll have to think of something for Sunday![p]Best wishes to all for a great weekend!

    <p />Part 1 (the picture) is done and almost gone... I saved a few of the Enchiladas for lunch tomorrow. At about 7pm we'll prepare the butt - the ribs are ready for tomorrow.

    Gfw, The enchiladas look wonderful. Do you follow a particular recipe for them or just throw 'em together with what's on hand?

  • GfwGfw Posts: 1,598
    randman, there are some on this forum who are really creative, and then there is me - I need a recipe - check out the link - this is the 2nd time - both times were great.

    gfw,
    weekend?? here is definition of "a great weekend" - this is what i purchased today - 20 lbs. chicken wings, 22 lbs. of baby backs, 3 lbs. black angus tenderloin, 2 lbs. shrimp - 1.5 lbs of scallops - do you think that will be enough for jslot and marty , the colonel and dee , and alyce and i.[p]hey colonel - what did you pick up at the market??

    In dog Beers - I have had only one !
  • Mr. Toad, Good evening--I haven't eaten in three days preparing myself for "THE" Great Weekend. In addition to the Toads purchase, I added 16 pounds of Boston Butt. Throw in a couple of cases of Chimay, the Belgium Brew from Heaven and good friends like the Toads and the JSlots--well, THAT my friends is a great weekend.
    yours in the egg--The Colonel

    the colonel,[p]you forget dee's masterpiece - tell the folks about it!!

    In dog Beers - I have had only one !
  • Mr. Toad, Sorry Sire> Dee is preparing a vanilla cheezecake with a strawberry swirl. She is topping it ever so lightly with a strawberry glaze and beside her masterpiece she will place a strawberry dipped in white chocolate with a chocolate swirl. This my friends will make you want to slap your mother-in-law.
    yours in the egg--and desserts--the Colonel
    p.s. Saturday she is making fresh blue berry crunch!!!!!

    Mr. Toad,[p]How many eggs are you going to use for this cook? Between you and The Colonel it looks close to 60lbs of meat. Ya'll gonna be busy.....[p]Z[p][p]
  • ZipZip Posts: 372
    The Colonel,[p]That sounds good - all of it. That blue berry crunch sounds really good. Gonna be making a fresh blackberry cobbler tomorrow, if I can get enough. The lack of rain down here in Florida has made us some very sweet blackberries. Kinda small, but very sweet.[p]Z

  • Zip,
    That's right, nothing better than fresh off the bush. The blueberries are big and sweet this year. Best batch I've had lately. By the way, we are using two big humptys and one baby humpty to heat the meat.
    yours in the egg--the Colonel

  • Wow! what a good visual. I wish I had smell vision on my moniter. I am originally from Oklahoma and those "enches" look really familiar and taste great. Good job on the pictures.
    yours in the "ole'" egg--The Colonel

    The Colonel,
    All right. All right!!!! We get the point.
    HOLY COW!!!! You guys are doin it right, that is for sure. So good to hear of you old-time-bbq-friends getting together...in style.[p]Looks like yall don't need any lessons on how to go all out! A RIGHTEOUS time should be had by all! Have a blast.[p]Happy Friday

  • Gfw, In the picture I can see the salt and pepper. I know from earlier posts you said you use sea salt exclusively now so I knew that, but what brand/mixture is that in the pepper grinder? It appears colorful to say the least! ^oo^~

    Mr. Toad,[p]That sounds like a great event indeed. Please say "hi" to your fine guests for me. Heck, if you didn't live so far away, you could borrow some of my cooking toys. Have fun![p]K~G

    Gfw,
    After seeing pictures of your house, your porch, your garden, your jeep, and all of the great food you have been whipping up, I kinda feel like I know you. Any pictures of you and the missuz, or just you that might help close this little void I have in my mind. Picture of you proudly flipping food on humpty maybe?? Sorry, but I can't hold back my curiosity anymore!! [p]NB

    Gfw,[p]It will be a great weekend for sure. I won't be doing anywhere near as much cooking. I'm just looking forward to getting all of my gear out of the garage and onto the new outdoor kitchen. The wife will stop complaining about not being able to fully open the door to her car and life will be good.[p]K~G

  • CornfedCornfed Posts: 1,324
    The Colonel,[p]Can I please come, too?[p]Cornfed
  • Nature Boy, The only thing not going into Humpty is squid. Maybe I should----Naaaahhhhh, not this time.
    yours in the squidless egg--The Colonel

    KennyG,
    Once you start setting up all those cookers on in your new outdoor playground, you will want to get one of em goin! You should do some wings to munch on while you go about your business.[p]The next think the missuz will be complaing about is how to get her back out of the cluster of cookers after you take the new picture with her in the middle of 'em!![p]Have a great weekend. Still have PBR available when you come out this way.

    Nature Boy,[p]The wife will be visiting her bro in Springfield next weekend. I can't make it this time as I've got too much going on. Still hope to hook up with you and Tim M. soon.[p]Hey, could I send the wife over to pick up the PBR and bring it back? hehehe[p]K~G

    Gfw, Thanks for posting the enchilada pix. Great shot! In fact, thanks for nothing! I'm sitting here in my office, starving, haven't eaten all day--can't leave--and...along comes the most tantalizing photo of my favorite dish! I hat it when that happens!!!

  • GfwGfw Posts: 1,598
    Bambi, thanks for the comments. I'm sitting at home - in the middle of a little (big) thunderstorm -- the ribs are about ready to come off the BGE and the Boston butt is about ready to go on. The enchiladas were really great - best reason to have extra pulled pork! Have a great weekend!
