    Uncle Apple I will be flying out of Tampico this weekend. I may can swing in for a day. What major airport are you next to? 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    @henapple There's way more discretionary $$ floating around here than I can comprehend.  Hiring @nolaegghead and @JohnInCarolina to fly in for the domestic duties speaks volumes.  Hopefully flying commercial  B)
    Regardless, I'm sure it will be quite a great time and with great groceries now that Rockwood has decided to play the prop 65 compliance labeling game or are you still managing your Ozark Oak inventory??  FWIW-

    I’m actually in town for work with Livermore.  Just worked out for me to stick around for the party.  I’m glad it did.

    @JohnInCarolina ; - I figured you were in the area for work with the big toys but just had to get that out there before heading into LEO.  Let us know what brand of charcoal (if even lump) you can find out there these days.  B)

    What did you think of the Oysters Nola?  Last fall when the wife and I went to Nappa we went to the Hog Island restaurant near the farm north of SF.  It was an awesome place and best oysters I've ever eaten.

    I've been there - very cool place, and the oysters were delicious.  I like that you could buy them by the sack and just roast them at your table.

    The hog island oysters are quite a bit different than our native gulf oysters.  Since they are farmed, they tend to be quite uniform in size and flavor, whereas our oysters go through more pronounced changes with the seasons and water quality/temperature.

    I like them both!
