Smoking For the Governor

I’m very honored tonight as I smell the 10 chickens, 3 briskets, 10 pork butts, and 11 lbs of Bluegrass Balogny cooking on the twin XLs for tomorrow’s feast. 
Our community government and local volunteers revitalized an Easter Seals campground and won the State Beautification Award. 
Part of the award is a picnic on the campground with the Governor of KY, his staff, and around 250 volunteers. 
RNNL8 BBQ was first choice to cater the event. 

I love Ive my Big Green Eggs. 

The folks here here on the forum have taught me well over the past 4-5 years. I never fail to mention you guys when talking about my cooking. I owe it all to you. 

Thanks again for for your support. 

Donnie.

    marysvilleksegghead   My wife made RNNL8 BBQ t-shirts for everyone helping. I think she might have been wearing a RNNL8 BBQ apron. Yes I do have a BGE apron, but wanted to display my logo and name! Selfish, I know !!

    Way to bring it home when under the gun.  Congrats on nailing the whole process.  Business will really ramp up after this recognition. 
    And good for you on marketing your business.  BTW-the Governor looks like he is having a good time or did I just call him a politician??  =)

    lousubcap  I don't think you can get the politician out of a politition!!!

    But he did seem like a very good guy.  I like him. I'm not sure my schoolteachers in my family care much for him though !!
