Ribs & Yakitori

My step-daughter who owns a hair salon threw a small party for her employees at her home and I was asked to do some ribs and yakitori in her back yard. And man, was it hot in the valley!......reminding me of the reason I moved out of the valley and into the city just 20 miles away many years ago.
Ribs were easy but at one point I felt a bit overwhelmed by the number of yakitori I had to skewer. The yakitori consisted of meatballs, beef, chicken, salmon, and misc vegis.......totaling about 200.
Thanks for looking!

A friend found this brand new apron at a garage sale for a buck and insisted I put it on

3 baby backs and 2 spares ready to be hung

All 5 racks hanging in the midi-wsm

BBQ area tucked in one corner of the yard

My yakitori setup on the kettle

Frank, who gave me the apron, helping me out. I think he was giving me the peace sign.

This gal was cranking out mojitos most of the evening for us

It's times like these you live for. Cooking lots of good things. Getting to use the gear, and push yourself to see what you are made of. And to top it all off, have lots of people get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Great job!

Looks like a great time and even better food. I wanna party at Roadfix's place! Neat trick with the angle iron. I may steal that one.

Just be yourself! Everyone else is taken.
