I took some BBQ over to my neighbor yesterday for no other reason than to be neighborly. I also throw a big BBQ for all my neighbors, all they need to bring is their beverages. (ok, some insist on bringing something so I suggest a salad or desert!) This got me to wonder'n...

Who here practices random acts of BBQ in their neighborhood? What do you do?

My neighbor has followed my lead and turned smoking and Qing into a hobby and leisure activity. He had a smoker and turned out some good Q but about 5 years ago he started asking a lot of questions and I passed on things I had learned and pointed him towards resources. He has really stepped up his game and turns out some excellent stuff. We kick it on each others decks when one of us is cooking. When you get to be our age any excuse to stay up 8 hours past our normal bed time drinking beer is always a good thing. Last night he hung out over here until about 2:30 sitting in front of the Chiminea drinking cold beers and smelling the Butt and Ribs taking on the Hickory. Another guy a couple of doors down loves to talk smoking and he has an off set that he fires up quite a bit. I guess my random act is more of sharing what I've learned over 35 years of cooking and getting others interested.

As far as cooking for others I used to occasionally take brisket or pulled pork to a bar that I frequented. It was a great little bar located 50' outside the door of the AT&T building I worked at. It was always rewarding to see how appreciative the folks were when realizing after having a few happy hour beers on a Friday afternoon that free brisket or pulled pork sammies were being served.

Great subject Tim.
I've never had one at my place, due mainly to the fact I don't have enough restroom facilities to take care of 50+ people.
I have gone to the VFW/American Legion and done BBQ's. Those usually generate income for the Post involved. I like their idea of bring a dish and get a free plate or pay what you can afford.
Troy (TrailerBuilder) has hosted several. Last year I had the honor of attending.
This thread will get interesting and give everybody some new ideas.
Thanks Tim

We do up a feed every last Sunday of the month & invite a bunch of folks to my friends place.....
They have a huge yard w/ a pool in back for the hotter months & we gather up people from recovery homes & such & show 'em how to have fun minus the face-plant....... Laughing

Also feed my extended family & neighbors at random intervals.......
Gettin' the older ones to eat something is sometimes a bit of a challenge, my dad would always chow hard when I brought BBQ over !!!

One of my favorite ones was the only place around that sold Wicked Good at the time....took him some 'turds & other apps. just 'cause I got to talkin' to him & he's a good guy that used to work for Weber......the next time I went in, he gave me 2 for 1 unexpectedly !!!!

Every long weekend my neighbors know to start poking their heads over the fence when they smell smoke... Very Happy Very Happy
I always bring care packages down to my local watering hole on the weekends. Very Happy ...I would sooner share it with friends than wrap it up and
let it sit in the freezer for a month.

Italian Skewer and myself always bring in BBQ for some of the guys we work with...they always like that. Very Happy

Seems over the few yrs I have been doing Q, I've taken more of KC hawgs route. Money for extra meat and such isn't just laying around, especially now as a newly married couple and looking to buy our first home, but,,,,,,,, that has never stopped me from building buddies a UDS or lending my tools, time, garage space and knowledge from past screw ups, to a friend looking to Get into the addiction. Stayed up last night waaayyyy too late sitting, drinking, and talking about future builds and Q with a buddy. Had to explain to the wife that I was doing a burn out of the dreaded red liner and wanted to make sure it got torched real good..... Like 11 hrs good......

My husband takes some into work with him when we do a bunch and we have people over sometimes however I don't live in a neighborhood and my closest neighbors, who occasionally stumble through my front yard drunk when they are walking to town, are about 1/2 a mile a way and I really don't want them to feel like they can stop by any time. Shocked

Good thread Tim!

My wife works with people who have severe mental disabilities. Here in Georgia the state has closed down the 'mental institutions' and privatized the care of people by putting them in homes (3-5 people per house). The boss lady has three houses that cares for 10 people. Every couple of months she hosts a 'Family Day' where everyone gets together for a cookout - and I'm the cook. It's a great way for all the family members to get together and see their loved ones. Anywhere from 30-100+ people show up and it can be a ton of work as it's mostly grilled stuff (and them boys can EAT! Laughing )

We host a Pig Roast annually, last year we had 90 family and friends. Also, during the Summer we have the family over after church and always invite a friend or neighbor over for Q or Pizza.

In our neighborhood we do what we call "Smokin Sunday" Once a month on the second sunday. Anybody who cares to brings over their meat of choice. Some know how they want it prepped some have no clue and I help them and get it prepped properly. Some people pitch in a little for wood. I get up at 4 am and fire up some wood and it is usually 9 pm before the last piece of BBQ Love comes off. Over time time it has spread to family of neighbors, coworkers and of course my family. I have my big 500 gallon and now my new patio smoker. It is looking like I may need them both this weekend. Makes for a fun Sunday of friendship and great conversations. It is also funny how out of town family will schedule there visits on the second sunday of the month.

Nope, people around me are very confined to their selves. I guess I've become that way as well. Also, my neighbor behind me hates that I grill/smoke. She once told me to move my grill farther away from her property....the nerve!
