A BBQ Kind of Weekend




It was a barbeque kind of weekend. The kids came over, hit the bookstore – my wife had an educator discount, and then noticed we were close to Thee Pitts Again, a really great barbeque joint in Glendale, AZ. I had the ribs and could barely finish but they were so good I couldn’t stop. They cook them St Louis style, good amount of sauce and falling off the bone. If you all are ever up in this neck of the woods I highly recommend this restaurant.



There must have been a vintage car show that weekend because we had some really nice old cars pull in to Thee Pitts while we were eating. I guess everyone was in the mood for barbeque, and why not, the old Leinenkugle’s Weather Dial was scraping 80 degrees. Just a beautiful day. In fact it was too good not to fire up my own grill and roast up some bratwurst and Some Italian sausage that had been simmered in beer with a few onions. The huskies were certainly down with that and were on hand to keep their eye on the grill for me.



Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Thee Pits looks like a cool place! Where did you ever find those great looking Bratwurst though?! Granted it was MANY years ago that I lived in OK (I know, I know...that is not the same as AZ, but...) when I went to a meat market to buy some Bratwurst they looked at me like I was from another planet. They had no clue as to what I was talking about. Perhaps things have gotten around more since that time!

Oh by the way....is that a sand blasted roof of a car in the forground of the first car picture? I heard that is one of the hazards of sand storms and sun in AZ. A friend who used to live there said a sand storm buffed the paint right off the siding of his house one time.

Did those Huskies get a chance to eat some sausage?

They're adorable.

Phosgene Kid, prepare your wife and family. I am officially moving to your neck of the woods. In fact, I'm moving into your home and taking over all your food and the dogs.

It's terribly terribly wicked of you to flaunt such delish food in my face, and the gorgeous dogs, too.

Lovely dogs.

I won't pass the compliments on to the dogs - they can hardly get their heads through the dog door as it is! Thanks! They don't live in our house, we live in their's...


They get to try eveything, it is part of their job as kitchen monkeys to make sure all meat and meat byproducts meet their high standards. Yukon is good about letting me know when it is time to check the oven and or grill.

The Brats are just Johnsonville's. If you want the best go to Usingers on the Internet, you can order sausage from them. The sad part is the palce that ships the sausage out is only a few blocks form my childhood home back in WI.

The rusty car wasn't sandblasted by the desert, though I am sure that it may have played a part over the years. The biggest problem out here is the sun baking everything.

I like how the dogs are looking in opposite directions - they are definitely keeping an eye on things!

There's something weird about going to a BBQ place where there's a pig as the mascot. Kinda creepy.

I've been to Thee Pits Again, too, and the interior is completely decked out with pig paraphernalia. It was eerie having all those beady-eyed pigs stare at me while I was eating.

It didn't stop me, though.

In related news, I have opened my own restaurant chain called "McCannibals," featuring tasty menu items such as Friend Fries and Children McNuggets.
