    "Texas" BBQ gun

    Heading out tomorrow to a get together which the host describes as a Texas BBQ. Never having been to a Texas BBQ, here or in Texas who knows how accurate his interpretation will be but it should be fun. HE is cooking a side of beef over an open pit all night and guests are invited to bling up a bit and wear their fancy shooting irons and gear to show off. I am not a real blingy kind of guy, about the best I can do is a 1970 Bulova Snorkel "Devil diver" and a chrome plated Detroit PD Colt with stag grips. At the very least the food should be great.

    Texas BBQ is Beef, Beef, Beef.
    No fancy rubs, a heavy dose of salt and cracked pepper. My taste is Central Texas BBQ. See if they offer up a free beer with their BBQ. If so it's real. Half a beef the crew has a huge pit, for a slow indirect heat.

    Make sure you are wearing $hit kickers (boots) and a hat is all the bling you will need. If you are wearing a Colt .45 1873 Cattleman you go to the front of the line.

    Enjoy your BBQ

    I've had Texas BBQ that not only tasted like boots, it was just as tough. On the whole, it's pretty good eatin', especially the aforementioned Central Texas variety. There's all kinds of cooking contests in the Lone Star state, but I knew one champ who only told me the first step in his winner recipe: Fell one cow.....

    Have a good time, lee. That watch and six-shooter should really razzle dazzle 'em.

    Texas is so dang big that there are about as many styles of BBQ as counties! I-10 is 879 miles long across Texas!

    Re: "Texas" BBQ gun

    It was a blast, lots of good food and people, and lots of sweet guns. There were several Wilson Combat pieces which had me drooling. I got slowest reload outside of the SAA division using my DPD issued cartridge loop belt slide and dump pouch, I guess they make these new fangled things called speedloaders which most revolver shooters used. But I got to say I did pretty good on the targets, even beat an 80 year old using a 1911 in the speed shooting drill.

    I think the stag grips really set it off. When I first saw the revolver it was wearing a cracked Colt grip panel and a Hip Grip which facilitates "Mexican" carry, sorry that is probably a politically incorrect these days way of saying stuff it in the waist band of your pants with no holster. I got these and put them on and my father in law loved it. This and his 4 inch chromed DPD Police Positive were the only handguns he ever owned, Interesting side note, he told me that Detroit PD would buy blued guns from Colt and then have them chromed locally rather than buy directly from Colt.


    As far as dress goes, I probably looked like a Texas bootlegger more than a cowboy as I did have my cowboy boots but the only hat I had was a Stetson Fedora.

    reason I used to shoot at Lone Star Range is there were some over the top BBQ joints. I brought a fancy looking 1911A1 to use as a BBQ gun.
    Retired and hunkering in.
