  • BBQ Trail

    What to do on a beautiful sunny 73 degree day? Why get some Fresh Air of course.
    Nice 140 mile ride and got to enjoy some fresh air and some Fresh Air.


    My Baltimore E had never been here to Jackson Georgia but hopefully will be back

    bike ran great and had a great ride. Even got 40.5mpg on Exxon 87

    what's in the backpack you ask?
    Quart of Brunswick Stew and 1 lb of BBQ for Brent & his wife since he wasn't available to make this ride Sunday afternoon (but wanted a Fresh Air fix since I was making the trip)

      I make Brunswick stew frequently. Start off by smoking a pork butt and go from there...

        What do you use to smoke your pork butts? After 25 years of using stick smokers, I finally tried a pellet smoker, I will NOT go back. The results in my opinion are just as good with a fraction of the effort. I have 2 Oklahoma Joe Longhorn smokers that are still in the box I got to replace my aging ones. Guess thats more storage space I can use for something else. If I could only talk a friend of mine out of his TOP SECRET rub recipe! I use a vacuum sealer and freeze meal sized portions.We eat a lot of smoked food.

            Another BBQ Stop or in this case it is called Bar-B-Que

            Pinetta Market & Bar-B-Que in Pinetta Florida


            Stopped here with Mike & Scott on our way home from the Suwannee River Rally. Then found out it was more than a Market. Deal is one brother owns and operates the Market while the other brother owns and runs the Bar-B-Que side. Separate cash registers. Brotherly love ………..

            Extremely friendly people. Market seemed to be the lunch hub for the community. A very fun and memorable stop.

                Lost the BBQ Trail

                Seems (for a variety of reasons) the BBQ Trail has gone cold the last 2+ months.
                of course Stay Home Orders and Closures took its toll on the BBQ Trail too


                No BBQ in sight anywhere here

                no Q, but nice view of metro Atlanta area


                No BBQ here either

                serving Q since 1929 except Mar & Apr & May 2020
                in case you were wondering my Sprint ST had been sitting 5 months so it needed some 'essential' travel to charge the battery

                Found the problem

                Bogart
                Think there was a song about this problem. Something like "don't bogart that Q my friend"


                Seems the BBQ Trail may be coming back to life. Just need to break the Bogart log jam. It may end up being squirrel but what the heck.

                Haven't figured out yet how to eat bbq without getting sauce all over my N95 mask.

                When & if you venture out Stay Safe ..........................

                  Time to get back on the BBQ Trail
                  -and- do a 210 mile Twist & Shout serious mountain road twisty ride


                  Stopped at the Wildcat Store / Grocery / BBQ on GA60 north of Suches for some much needed BBQ

                  After months of oppressive heat and humidity; today it was finally a great day to ride



                  They were out of ‘cat’ today so owner suggested the Brisket came out especially great

                  it was .......... a delicious pile of Brisket perfection and a side of Brunswick Stew + slaw



                  They call this progress, a Roundabout at Stonepile Gap lots of work and $$$ making those fancy retainer walls

                  Time will tell if it saves wrecks or creates more. That was a nasty spot to make a turn.


                  If you have ever been to XXSE at TWO or to Marty's (before he moved), well you've been here

                  for grins i went around the roundabout 5-6 times, till i got dizzy


                  Time to crank it up

                  Those that have been here, some amazing technical off camber, decreasing radius stuff ...... yee-haw



                  Celebrating 50 Years of the XS650

                  Stopped by the VMJC Bike Show and XS650 Event in Blairsville

                  Really some extremely beautiful XS650's


                  Route was: 400, Longbranch, Copper Mines, Porter Springs , 60 , Skeenah Gap, Mulkey Gap, Owltown and the awesome Blood Mountain 19/129 (thankfully didn't leave any samples or anything to clean up) 210 miles Rode back home to Atlanta tagging along with a Ducati Hypermotard, that was FUN.


                  Great Ride and Great BBQ, pulled some G's and got home without incident. Not a bad day at all.

                  Have a great Labor Day - Ride if you can

                  Hope to be on the BBQ Trail again this fall after the XSSE / VYR Rally at Iron Horse. Next BBQ search, anybody want to ride along?
