One of the coolest things about living in small-town U.S.A. is getting together with friends and neighbors and throwin' a good old-fashioned party. Now keep in mind this isn't just a beer party, although there was plenty of that, the food is probably one of the key elements of these parties. Ben, a good friend and co-worker, loves to smoke meat, so much that he has his own smoker, has been doing it for quite some time, and has gotten very good at it. Tonight it was smoked pork loin, now Ben doesn't screw around when it comes to smokin' meat, he seasons it and keeps it well mopped while it's cooking. Now no down home Kansas meal is complete without tators. Mike, friend and host of the party, has his own recipe for party tators and it is awesome!
The Smoker!

mmmmmm......pork loins.....


 Mike is also demolition derby maniac, you can always tell when it's derby season because there's no mistaking the sound of Mikes fire-breathing 318 Mopar being tuned.

The Machine!

I love those pipes!!

Mike and Larry discussing strategy? Nah, just drinkin and BS'n!

Gotta love a 4-barrel!

my sad attempt at taking a decent picture of the campfire, lol!
I don't know what the hell Larry's lookin' at, but I think Ben's done, lol!
Friends, food, beer, and a whole lot of BS'n, it doesn't get much better than that! A big thanks to Mike and Bobbie Sue for hosting, putting up with a bunch of drunks and making everyone feel welcome, Ben as always your cookin' is awesome, can't wait to do it again!
