With the weekend coming up, I'm what is everyone planning? I haven't made up my mind yet. I know we're going to have dinner with friends on Saturday (he always does a good job, so that will be enjoyable), but I haven't made up my mind for Sunday and Monday. Actually, I'm looking for ideas :) :)

That's a good question, Jimmy...Labor Day snuck up on me this year!

Let's see...off the top of my head I know I have some steaks, a chicken, and a couple of pork tenderloins in the freezer. Dunno how creative I'll get but at least I won't starve! :lol:

I noticed today that nothing's been added to the "One Hamburger Summer" sticky all summer, so hopefully we'll get some last-minute additions from the holiday!

Haven't even thought about it yet. Was told that my parents are throwing a 50th B-day surprise party for my uncle saturday, so I'll be manning my old gas grill over there probably. Craving a brisket lately, don't know if I have the time, though.

Today I picked up a just-under-4 pound bone-in butt so that'll be Monday's dinner. Mrs. SC works tomorrow so I'm just going to grill some hot Italian sausages for myself, and today we're tailgating with burgers in Milwaukee.

I finally picked up some babybacks and beef ribs today and will also fix a couple of BCCs this weekend. Hope everyone has a good holiday weekend!

Dyal, please excuse my asking. Somebody has to ask you this.-- Have you ever done game hens on a Gamecock day? I actually think that would be a great cook. As it is, fantastic job on your chili and cornbread! WOW! Sports food to the max! :D

My handle here is a combination of my initials and my birthday. I'll leave it to you guys to figure out which is which. Unfortunately where the interior of our house is under construction and my birthday was this week, people want to cook for me this Labor Day weekend. Me I would like nothing better than to grill out on the new Egg all weekend, but sadly it's just not in the cards. I'm going to try and sneek something in on Monday if I can. I may have to live vicariously through all you folks, so I hope you'll take and post pictures of what you've done.

I'm always hesitant to grill anything "chicken" related on a Gamecock gameday... :lol: But every once in awhile, I'm brave and grill up some wings. :wink: Thanks for the nice comments!

I made a double batch of "apple pie baked beans" for yesterdays get together and I have 2 large salmon filets marinading in rum and spices that I'll be smoking shortly with some pecan wood for today's fiesta. Happy Labor Day everyone!
