Had company today what a wonderful visit !

Where are we today ?
          This morning started with a nice 1 mile walkabout as the sun came up, then a quick trip to Blythe for a few things and another good deal on a chicken for tonight's supper.
           We have a good friend George (yes there is lotsa George's around) stop by for a nice visit. He is from the Clarence New York. I met him many years ago when I began stopping by his Store (Adventures in Heat) for some very tasty and exciting hot sauces. Stopping in usually once a year I would stock up on my sauces and chat with George for a while if he was not too busy in the store. He was interested in our RV lifestyle. 
           Last year he sold his business and another nice couple took it over and renamed it Smoke, Fire and Spice. So now it has freed him up to travel and visit people.  And we are one of the people he choose to come visit on his roadtrip (no rv yet).
           Now George sold some many high end BBQ's , cookers and smokers in his store along with the spices rubs and sauces. Also a great promoter for Oinktoberfest which we have yet been unable to attend. He wanted to have a good BBQ'd meal from my Weber Q.  So I said I would try. First thing he did when he got here was to check out my Weber Q. Before he even sat down, he used to sell them in his store at one time.
Love his License Plate
He arrived shortly after 12 noon and we sat out in the shade to catch up and flap our gums. Amazing how fast the time flies with lively conversation. About 3pm our neighbors came over to join us for happy hour.
        Soon it's time to fire up our Weber Q and put on supper. We having a 6.5 lb chicken the I tried some of his Butt Rub spice on, baked potatoes, and carrots with maple syrup and an apple spice I tried.
looking good
         It all came together very nicely I loved the new spices and of course always love our chicken.
yummy
And I think George enjoyed it too!
        Well we sure had a very nice visit and the weather could not have been any nicer.
        Was great to see you again George hope we can do it again next time you are in the area. Travel safe and enjoy the journey.

         Thank you all for stopping by as well, hope you are enjoying some nice weather wherever you are.

  1. Your fame as a Master Griller has spread beyond your blog for someone like George to stop in. That is what you would call a special visit and I am sure that before long you will see George in his own RV.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. It was a very special visit, he will most likely buy an Rv just needs to find the right one yet.

  2. BBQ is my favorite... right up there with pulled pork. I like the rostisserie chicken here, but truth is... yours looks better.

    1. Thanks Sharon, If you can't BBQ your own chicken, rotisserie is the next best thing.

  3. Sounds like a very special visit and perhaps he will catch the irresistible RV bug from you.

  6. Dinner looks great! If you're ever in Greece, you'll notice that 90% of the guys are called George (Costas).

  8. Great to meet with an old friend. That chicken was huge. Seems like more of a turkey.

  9. How's that soup coming along? You hit the nail on the head about the time flying by. Had a great time with both of you. George, I hope you felt OK this morning. You probably needed the mile walk. Hahahahaha! Again, it was a delight & be sure to tell you "happy hour" friends how much fun it was. Especially the verbal sparring & the telling of long stories with John.

    1. The soup was great for lunch!
      I felt great this morning and my mile walk in before 8 am as usual.
      Glad you enjoyed your time here and hope we can do it again sometime.
      Enjoying that Ballast point ale, sure has a nice kick to it with the Habanero peppers.
