My family threw me a wedding shower this weekend

I spent a nice weekend in Kansas City, where my family threw us a couples wedding shower. It was nice. The theme was BBQ.

I was happy.Among the gifts were at least 8 bottles of BBQ sauce, and I think they represented six or seven different brands, most of which aren’t available in St. Louis.

I rattled off a few of the kinds of BBQ sauce you can get in St. Louis: Kraft, Heinz, KC Masterpiece, and–I had to think for a while to come up with the name of the local brand–Maulls.

Most of them snickered when I said "Kraft." I think that stuff is illegal in Kansas City.

Actually, you can get Gates here in St. Louis also. A couple of relatives got me bottles of Gates and KC Masterpiece, but that’s OK. I’m never one to turn away good BBQ sauce, even when I can get them locally. The last time Gates was on sale here in St. Louis I bought about half a dozen bottles.

I also got a bottle of Arthur Bryant’s. It’s very famous too, and not available in eastern Missouri, as far as I know.

One relative sent me a bottle called Famous Dave’s BBQ Sauce. I posed for a picture with it. I hope my aunt sends me a copy.

So I think I might have enough BBQ sauce to get me through my final month of bachelorhood. We’ll just have to see.

  1. The best BBQ sauce I’ve ever had is made at Mac’s BBQ in Brady, TX. They just take the meat drippings from the brisket, skim off the fat, add some spices and jalapeno juice and keep it warm in an old Bunn coffee pot. Mmmmmm mmmmm ! and not an ounce of sugar or tomato sauce to be found in it ๐Ÿ˜›

    (yes, I realize that Texas BBQ is a whole, different animal than Kansas City style ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Oops. Uh… pretend that was a parent post or something. I was going to reply to Dave (the other one ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), but I thought I’d send you warm wishes or whatever… Well, I’m just loopy – sick and all.

        1. Y’know – I hear August is a great month to have a kid. Of course, I should probably disclose that my birthday is in August so you know I’m biased.
