Mohegan Sun (Casino) BBQ Festival coming up soon. June 3rd and 4th. I went last year and had a really good time. Great food, cold beer, live music, BBQ demos. I think Myron Mixon was there one of the days last year.

I met Jeff, from Sam & Oliver Hot Sauce there too. Really nice guy. His booth made it into the slideshow this year ;) (It pops up when you open the link) I'm not sure who the two first two people are (girl in black and guy in blue shirt) standing in front of the table, but I'm the third one in line, and next to me (fourth from the front) is The Northeast Chileman. You can't see our faces, but you can see my beer on the table while I'm getting money out of my wallet to buy the big sampler pack.

Check it out; should be a good time!

I was wondering when you were going in when I read this post. How long will you be in? Hope things go smoothly and cheers to a fast recovery.

Thanks guys, I'm hoping the recovery goes smooth too. Already been out of work since August. I'm losing my freakin' mind, not to mention getting fat (I put 25lbs on!). They're saying I might be out for up to another year

How long will you be in?

The surgery is supposed to be about six hours long. They're replacing two discs in my lower back, then fusing three of my vertebrae with titanium rods and bone graft material. Ughhh... They said I'll be in the hospital anywhere between 3-5 days, so I'm hoping to come home Saturday, but I don't wanna rush it either. No point, my Memorial Day weekend is shot now anyway :censored:

Prepping myself to deal with the hospital food, haha. Here's my travel bag contents :party: Got some prosciutto and provolone stuffed hot cherry peppers, bringing some smoked Cappuccino Scotch Bonnet flakes, some of my sauce. Pookie, I picked up some Chipotle Cholula after talking about it in that other thread this morning, hahaha ;) I haven't had it in a while

Well, this event (thread title) has already passed, and I'm not about to start a new thread just to share this, but here's what they did to my lower back. Finally got to see the X-rays on Friday:

That's probably gonna be all the metal I have left in me, Pook. I think it's safe to say that I'm officially retired from mosh pits now ;)
