Terrell Bar-b-que - My 200th Post!!!

Happy 200th post to me!!! My first photo today shows the grill and shish-ka-bobs that I was tending to last Sunday while my dog Bingo watched me through the fence. I love to barbeque, and love to eat barbeque as well -- I tend to stick with the easier items like burgers, hot dogs, sausages, steaks or chicken when I cook at home.... I haven't tried to barbeque (or smoke) ribs or brisket - those are things I enjoy going out to eat....

These shish ka bobs are made with steak, sausage and lots of fresh vegetables including: red and green bell peppers, small red potatos, mushrooms, red and white onions and some fresh corn on the cob.

And speaking of bar-b-que, Soulman's restaurant finally opened their new location in Terrell this past Monday, July 7. I've been a fan of Soulman's since back around '99 when I used to eat at their now-closed southern location near Desoto several times a week. They also have locations in Mesquite and Rockwall that I've been to since the south-side store closed, and now we've got our very own right here in Terrell in the old 'Grandy's' building located at 1081 FM 148 off of I-20.

Yesterday, I went down to try out our new Soulman's location with my grandma and Jim from Terrell Daily Photo (photos of Soulman's from Jim at TDP). I had the ribs, spicy beans and cole-slaw and it was great!!

Jim had a sliced sausage sandwich, spicy beans and some boiled cabbage. He said that the cabbage was so good it'd make me slap my grandma... i turned my head a little, and my grandma said "just try it cause I slap back!" Then she said something about elderly abuse or something, I forget the last part.... =)

Happy 200th post!

Your kebabs look quite tasty and it sounds like you had fun at Soulman's. All the talk of spicy beans is making me hungry.

Did you and Jim know each other before starting your photo blogs?

Hurrah on your 200th post! Can't think of a better excuse for some BBQ... And now that's making me think of Low Country Boil, which also sounds really good right now... Hm. Must be time to start thinking about what I'm going to make for dinner.
