    There was a Po Boy festival in town today.  I know I should've stayed longer.

    I had to do the brakes on my F-250 when I got home. I hate how the Ford wheels always seem to fuse to the rotors, had to hit the inside of the tires with a sledge to get it to break free. The pad in my hand is from the outside of the rotor and had absolutely no pad left, pretty much just the backer plate. The inside pad was about half thickness so I'm hoping the caliper isn't frozen. 

    Needless to say I had neglected the brakes and was way overdue:

    I'd like to thank everyone who came, and some that didn't, that contributed .  We had a blast.  Took tomorrow off to recuperate.  I'll try to post some pictures at some point, although I don't have many, busy busy busy.

    We're gonna do it next year.  This is usually the time I don't want to do it next year because all the work cleaning up SUCKS.  Fortunately @DMW and Zack helped and @FleurdeLirious did more than a normal mortal could with everything.

    You both do. @DMW comes in handy to make sure you don't burn all that sh!t down. 

    What say the BC lawyers? Everyone out on bail? Looks like you guys pulled off another epic brisky camp.

    2400 miles round trip to attend brisket camp is some serious dedication - the rest of y'all have no excuse to not make it next year.

    High temp anti-seize (between the hub and the rotor, and between the rotor and the wheel) is your friend.

    Agreed, I slathered a bunch of it on last night when I reassembled everything.

    The worst part about Brisket Camp.

    @SGH - Figured that rig must have a drain valve on it...But the volume you pumped thru obviously exceeded capacity.  Or did the quantity of adult supervisory beverages contribute to a closed valve scenario??  ;)

    @lousubcap
    Brother Cap, it does have a drain valve. That's what I'm doing right now. But there is some scrapping involved. Due to the volume, I didn't want to drain it at Brisket Camp. However I did open the valve coming through New Orleans and let the worst of it out. This is what won't drain. Pain in the arse my friend.

    As a long time fan of Witchy Red I found my favorite use is on pork and on chicken. First time you use it the beet powder turns your chicken an interesting red!

    Commander's palace - waaay too much class for me.  I would still be trying to figure out how to tie a tie to get in   ;)
    But great looking groceries for sure.
