Great food and good friends!

About a month ago, my sisters and I had a yard sale and decided rather than splitting the money, we’d have a big cookout. Since everyone but Justin and I was at the beach for the 4th, it was nice to have a summertime get-together. Plus it was the perfect opportunity for Justin try out his new grill. He has worked tirelessly to upgrade this grill my dad gave him and make it into a pretty awesome smoker. Here it is:

We had such great food and a lot of our family and friends came over. The menu was jam-packed with lots of goodies. Here’s the menu:

Ribs with Justin’s brand on them. His mama got him the brand for Christmas from Williams & Sonoma.

This was so fun and we hope to do it a few more times---especially when it cools down a bit here in South Georgia.
P.S. Those cute kids? That’s my niece Rivers holding the ribs up and my nephew Ben with that crazy cute smile. I can never ever snap pictures fast enough to get the oldest, Jake, in a shot. He was too cool for school hanging out with the older guys shooting skeet!
