Rattle Snake Round Up

Wild times were had in Sweetwater at the Annual Rattle Snake Round Up. Julie Richards, of Waco and Julie fame, was on the winning team. Midkiff Mafia BBQ had a great day. They place 1st in rattle snake, 2nd in brisket and 10th in chicken. That gave them just enough points for the Grand Champion call in this Lonestar Barbeque Society event. Julie was going to make a snake meatball using my Chipotle Bomber recipe as a guide, but they were thrown a curveball and had to change the recipe at the last-minute. This year the judges decided to make the teams turn in snake on the bone, so they could be sure it was indeed snake. So it’s a little tough serving meatballs with bones, so she changed at the last moment. I will try to get some pics up later of the winning team. Julie had to take off early because her and Waco were singing over in Midland. So she missed the awards. Check out the link from here to Waco and Julie’s site and go see them sometime if they are in the area. Congratulations to Bernie Phillips and the Midkiff Mafia BBQ team.

Great Nachos and Excellent Music

I headed out to Cora’s Grill with the wife, daughter and a few of her friends Saturday night. We were anticipating good food and some great music. Waco Richards, a talented young man I have know all his life,  his wife Julie and his cousin Jeremy teamed up to entertain friends and family. Upon arrive we ordered two trays of bean and cheese nachos and something to drink. Now two trays may not seem like much for a party of six, but at Cora’s their large order of nachos come on a cafateria tray. The music was great all the kids, I say kids heck they are all closer to 30 then 20, did a wonderful job. They sang classice rock, honky tonk classics, some modernday hits for the younger part of the crowd and Waco and Julie sang a new song that Waco had written. If your out in West Texas stop by and hear them or catch on of Jeremy’s shows in the San Antonio area. If your up for some excellent nachos take a short drive out of San Antonio and visit Cora’s 471 Grill.
