Yes I am an avid reader. I have a wide range of interests.
I read fairly fast.
My favorite author of all time is Arthur Conan Doyle. I am also a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs. I do enjoy more contemporary writers of fiction, but not nearly so much.
Recently, I don't read as much as I would like. Maybe 5-7 books a year.

Hoot, in my thread about beard trimmers you posted a picture.

1. What is the story behind that photo? Where were you and what was going on? I know it was your Spring Rendezvous, but what is that?

2. How long had you been growing your beard at that point?

Well that photo was taken near Surry, Va. I belong to a historical re-enactment /muzzleloader club called The Olde Virginia Riflemen.
I have been primitive camping for nigh on to a quarter of a century.
We re-enact the US fur trade era from 1725-1840.
We have two events every year, one in the spring and one in the fall.
We try to live as they did in which ever time period one chooses to represent. We have Pre-Revolutionaries, Revolutionary Period, Courier de Bois, and Western Mountain Men. We do have, from time to time, Native American and Colonial Period folks as well.
We try to keep camp in as authentic appearance as possible.
In the Spring, however, make some exceptions for newcomers.
In the Fall, we want the camp to be, as we call it, strictly primitive.
It is a family oriented event and we welcome all visitors, no charge.
If you would like to know more, we have a website:
The Olde Virginia Primitive Riflemen
I built and ran the website for a decade or more and now serve in an advisory capacity. The gal that took over has done a fine job.

Now, about my beard, the last time I shaved, my youngest son was just learning to walk. I made a serious error in judgment that day.
I should have let him watch me shave. When he laid eyes on me, he didn't recognize me and he was scared to death. He is coming up on 22 in January.

That looks like it could be a lot of fun Hoot!

My dad had a beard and mustache for my whole life. When he finally shaved it neither my brother nor I noticed for a week. He finally had to tell us what he had done. Guess we were not the most observant people back them

Wow that's fascinating! When I was little, my mom took me to all kinds of reenactments and I so badly wanted to be involved, even then! What a great group of friends it must be. I would love to be a part of that.

I used to make my own bbq sauce, but, up until recently, I always seemed too pressed for time. I often use Hunts Original bbq sauce and add some extra cayenne and ground mustard, and chipotle powder. I generally don't use a sauce until the last hour or so.
When I have the time I would make a batch of the following:

1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup ( 1 medium onion) minced onion
1/2 cup minced green pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
Pinch each of salt and black pepper
2-3 tablespoons minced garlic
1 can (14 ounces) tomato sauce

1 can ( 14 ounces) diced tomatoes
2 cups ketchup
1 cup water
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce (I like Lea and Perrins)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup Texas Pete or your favorite brand of hot sauce
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard
3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1-2 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke (optional) (I used Stubbs Liquid Smoke)

Pour the oil into a large saucepan and set over medium-high heat.
Toss in the onions, green peppers, and jalapenos and give them a
stir. Season with a pinch of sa1t and pepper and cook until soft and
golden. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Dump in everything
else except the Liquid Smoke.

Bring to a boil, then lower the heat so the sauce simmers. Simmer
for 10 minutes. Swirl in the Liquid Smoke (if using) and let the sauce cool.

Run it through a blender until smooth.
Pour it into a container, cover, and store in the fridge until ready
to use. Makes 6-7 cups.



I rarely use a recipe for a rub. Just whatever I can lay my hands on in the cupboard.
My favorite thing to bbq....hard to say.....I reckon it would have to be brisket, but pork ribs is a very close second.
