My family and I went to a family friend's BBQ in Barrington this afternoon. It was the perfect weather to be out and enjoy the early days of fall.
I honestly try to avoid eating red meat as possible, but the catering company who worked the BBQ did a great job on the brisket--it was slow cooked for 14 hours. According to their website, Preppy Pig BBQ, based in Warren, RI, caters events all over New England--think of preppy hot-spots Nantucket, Newport, Greenwich, "and all points in between."
The owner's enthusiasm for his company is genuine in both the online company description and in-person. He prepared and served the ribs and brisket at our family friend's BBQ with a smile. We had to leave the BBQ early, but the owner was kind enough to send us off with brisket sandwiches to-go.
The rest of the day was spent like every other college student in the country--doing homework that should have been finished before the weekend even begun. Thankfully, I finished reading Old Man Goriot and studying for French. Only four more classes to work on.
