    Appreciate all the shout outs guys!  I enjoyed doing this little Christmas exchange and I hope all of you did too.

    Here is my gift from my elf, @Brianj5685

    My and Brian are from the same general area (the dirty, dirty South) but he still managed to send me stuff that I can't get in my local markets.

    Thank you very much Brian for the goodies and the note.  Merry Christmas!

    I just received the gift from my Elfster. Great rubs, sauces and to my surprise a few marinades. This coming from central California, I will enjoy all of these. I have only had Tri Tip once. I believe it was Hornhonk who prepared it at the Salado Eggfest. Now I will enjoy it at the house with the great rubs you have sent.

    Thank you greatly for  your gift. And of course for the Pistachios.

    Merry Christmas

    @brianj5685 +1 for wickles brand stuff. I've never had the wickled okra, but I'm sure it's wickedly awesome.

    It was supposed to deliver yesterday. USPS tracking says it's still in Canada, Canada Post says it left Canada on the 13th

    Maybe US Customs stopped this Elf making the delivery at the border and is holding him for questioning.

    @dweebs0r you're welcome man, Enjoy!
    Made chicken last night and both BBQ sauces were a big hit.  The white sauce was like a peppery/ vinegary ranch.  Really good stuff.  I preferred the red sauce.  One of the best BBQ sauces I have used in a long time.  Thanks again.  I'm going to try and get more of this stuff on Amazon.

    @Little Steven, I still don't have the package. Maybe pancakes need some maple syrup. The tracking hasn't changed since the 15th.

    So who's left? I don't have mine and I am sure my elf doesn't have his either yet. 500 awaits patiently. Everyone else have theirs? Just curious.

    What's up with Canadian customs? How long does it take?

    No idea. Tracking just says its been handed off to Canada Post but its said that since the 19th. I'm not worried. You did address it in both French and English right?

    That's a negative ghost rider...

    Should I have sent a translation guide?

  • @Hotch, that is an awesome package. I grew up in the central valley and Pappy's is DAMN good. I'd put that stuff on anything. I have to track some down here in SD.

    I can't wait to use it.

    I also have heard great reviews about the miners mixes.

    We will empty all of these.

    It just arrived. Literally 5 mins ago the post man came to my door. He always comes in the morning so I thought today was a bust.
    What an awesome load of Texas rubs. Can't wait to make the chili and I promise no beans! I really want to try the mesquite rub on some beef ribs I'm planning for Boxing Day.
    Thanks so much Hotch. So glad it finally came and I can't wait to try it all.

    I am still waiting but am told mine is coming from Canada too.

    Plus yours might have some beer in it so I'm sure your elf is hoping that doesn't cause border issues. But of course I'm just guessing.

  • Just got home to a package of goodies! Thanks @gmac ! I am looking forward to a cold one here in a few minutes. I guess if there is a plus side to the cold temps here in Indiana right now it's that beer arrives cold. I am looking forward to all of the goodies. Especially the homemade Indian spice rub mix. It was hard to stage it to get everything to show up. This is my best attempt. Thanks again Graham!

  • That's awesome @Egghead_Daron, good score there. @gmac do you store all your home made rub in 50ml conical tubes? Because that would be awesome! What do you do for a living?

    Big thanks to @letz4wheel! I love Head Country, but have never tried the rub. I can't wait to try the local Moonlight sauce, and loveless cafe stuff! I really appreciate it! Merry Christmas.

    Still waiting for my elf, @SWVABeanCounter to post confirmation that he got his stuff.  Tracking says its been delivered but I would really like to know since it said it was dropped off at a counter.
    So, Jim if you are reading this, let me know you got your stuff!

    Can people let me know if they dont have an elf delivery?  I want to make sure everyone is happy.

    Glad it got there.  I admit, I was uncertain if sending beer would be an issue.  Like I said, not sure if you guys ever have Caesar's or not, seems to be a hit or miss thing in the US but I decided not to send a bottle of vodka...sorry.  
    Let me know if you liked the beer.
    Enjoy.
