My favorite City Wide event is in the books and it went off without a hitch as usual! A huge thank you to my wife, Liz for all her efforts getting everything ready at the house, shopping and prepping an excessive amount of food for 30 adults and kids.
For a Minnesota company, we know our BBQ and we know it well. That might be my fault since I’m a bit obsessed and own 4 smokers but we have some other BBQ cooks in our office as well. Greg, Cory, Shelly’s husband Gabe and Chad to name a few. I’m thankful we get an opportunity to put on a top notch event every year with Briskets, Pork Shoulders an Ribs versus a burger and brats affair.
Aside from the food, the real fun is in the relationship building as coworkers, significant others and their kids come together and take over my backyard and basketball court. We had kids happily squirting water at adults, and we just let it happen, as well as creating “chalk paint” see picture attached, I didn’t know that was a thing but those kids figured it out.
Conversations, relationship building and cleanup went into the later hours of the evening and another great event is in the books. I received a lot of kind feedback from everyone for hosting and having it at our house, but truly we just appreciate each person that puts in hours and dedication to our business. Hosting a BBQ is a blast for Liz and I even though it comes with a lot of work.
