Oh yeah, Suzi. Had it sitting right beside the grill. Getting the empty filled today.
Like I said in another post, my next grill is going to be natural gas, even if I have to order it in.

We went to a mini-family reunion potluck. I took my almost-world-famous couscous salad with grilled veggies and champagne vinaigrette. We also had grilled burgers, hotdogs and sausages, baked beans, ratatouille, salad, and brownies. Then we played croquet

Looks darn good! Here are mine from last night, they were OK just a little bit too much fat for my taste, not the best cuts:

Mav, I was going to ask about ribs and Chicago..... isn't that area known for its pork, pork capitol of the world or something? I was wondering if the prices reflected that, if your rib prices were lower than the "rest of the world"? I almost hate buying them they're so expensive.

I see your brats, too

I honestly don't know, I am not sure what they cost in other areas? I know if I go to Pete's I can get ribs, rib tips, and wings dirt cheap. There is also Moo & Oink's as well, but I don't know how they compare with other cities prices.
I went to Pete's, and they had been pretty picked over so I got pretty much the best ones I could find after rummaging thru the entire bin. They were $1.69lb, I should have gone with the rib tips in a 3lb box though. I can't remember what the price was on that though.
The brats were boiled up in beer and onions, then grilled, yum!

This is a link to their flier for this week: Pete's Fresh Market - Best Quality for Less Since 1970
Some is hard to read, but you can get a general idea of how much stuff costs there.

$1.69/lb for ribs?! That's all I need to see. They go "on sale" here for $2.99/lb.

Lucky bum, you

OK, I feel lucky now, LOL. Regular price they can get up to $2.99 at places like Jewel or Dominick's but they are always expensive and never a better cut.
$1.69/lb was cool, I think I usually average about $1.89/lb. I know cause the wife (who watches every penny religiously) made the comment they were .20 cheaper per lb than usual, so I picked them up and decided to do rib tips another time.
I wonder if there are any online stores you can get em from that even after shipping might be cheaper??

I used to by them by the case from a restaurant supply, but they were still kinda pricey.... and then I had a WHOLE case of them to use up....
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
