Ode to Homeboy 55.........






Like an ethereal mist, the hickory smoke wafts through the thick August air.
An aromatic essence beckons you with it's Siren-Like song....
...."Galen.......Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaalennnnnn"
Curse you 'Smokin Larry'!!!!!!
Curse your Culinary Wizardry!!!!!
Helpless.....It's drawing me near.
"Gaaaaaalennnnn"
There it is!! That bastion of tangy temptation!
The Valhala of Barbecue Succulence!
!!!!!!!....HOMEBOY......!!!!!!!
..."Gaaaaaalennnnnnnnnnnnn"..........

Hi everybody, see that box of rib tips? 6 Bucks!
The Beef Brisket Sandwich with any side ( I chose Beans) 4.99!!!!!
This place is me and my best friend Alex's favorite rib joint..
It deserves much more praise than a cheesy 55 word tribute..
Maybe it deserves a double 55 word tribute...Which it just GOT!!!!!
.
.
If you or anyone you know has a 55 posted, please come tell the G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment, then BOOK!!!
Have a Great Week-End Everybody.
Peace...!!!

Mmmmm! That BBQ looks mighty yummy. Catchy name the place has, too. And dang, you sure can't beat the prices. We need some of that Culinary Wizardry around here.:)

Now I have to go to bed hungry. That looks incredible. What a wonderful place that must be and what a taste double 55 G.

ciara said...

i love this 55...i think those ribs and things would be calling my husband, too. he likes that stuff (especially if it's CHEAP) ha ha

me? well, it's making my stomach churn just a bit...only cuz i've been laying off stuff that's not good for me for awhile (though i miss how good it tastes!) LOL

Barbecue sounds awesome, Galen! You've made me hungry. Which is good, because I've been not-hungry all day, and I couldn't figure out what to eat.

My 55 posted itself just as it should have earlier tonight (if only I could make it link up for me, too!), and now I will go investigate my food options.

You seem to do so much more with your Barbecue's over there, we Brits are a tad boring. Maybe its to do with the weather, it rains so much we get very little practise. Tasty 55 G-man, I'm up....

KB said...

Yummy, yummy!

Mine's been up for hours but I forgot to check in :(

Gosh that sounds so rude

SignGurl said...

Granted that bbq looks mighty good, but ahem......you haven't tried bbq until you've tried it in the South!!!

It's really cool though how every region of the US does BBQ differently. Some use wet rubs others use dry, some smoke it and call it bbq anywho I enjoyed your 55.

Galen have a great weekend, enjoy just being, take a deep breath of air and enjoy Borders if you go.

Missy said...

oops wrote that about Borders before I read last nights replies from you. I don't think you'll be doing much reading tonight boyo! Your world will be spinning if you drink the night away lol.

Breazy said...

I also read the previous post, poor Reese. I hope the recovery goes well.


Have a beautiful weekend!

Mona said...

Ok Galen. it IS deserving just a wee more than a cheesy 55 words tribute I guess, with everyone going Ga Ga in their comments after your extended Gaaaaa !

& according to me, the best tribute is even lesser than 55 words

It is speechlessness! :D

& my 55 is up too!

Donnetta Lee said...

Hi, Galen! I'm back home in Oklahoma. We just got in this afternoon. I sent you an email, too! Anyway, I have a Friday 55er just posted. Please come read. I enjoyed the double 55 tribute. Yum.

I miss you!

When we were on our way back from our VACATION in Hannibal, MO, Hubbetron ate ribs in the car. Not good car food.

J Morgetron said...

Oh I don't like BBQ meat too much but I LOVE BEANS!

They're musical!

gab said...

WOW does that ever look good. My BBQ doesnt quite look as good but it does the trick for us.

snowelf said...
