It's been very busy here at  The Captain's Quarters Inn  A big thanks to all of you that have stayed with us throughout the year and also all of the RIB U Students, the classes have been a blast. We still have a few midweek spots open and I also have posted on our website a few Weekend classes for this Fall/Winter season ( Its under the Specials tab ). We got a few calls about our Mystery Weekend Package so I also posted some dates for that in Oct and Nov 2012 and I will post some later this year for 2113. That's it for now got to go make a batch of rubs for this weeks class.

2012 Hog Fest

The Captain's Quarters Inn

      I Know all of you are waiting for the results of the 2012 Hog Fest. It was a very busy weekend, but with  lots of Help ( and not much sleep) the DPQ BBQ Team of Dana Myers, Karl Grother, myself and behind the scene work of Diane we took 3rd Place in Brisket, Ribs took 12th and Pork 13th with an overall placement of 10th place out of 36 teams on the first comp on Saturday.
      On Sunday there were only 22 teams ( All Pros's ) and we came in 14 th over all with Brisket coming in10 th. also on Sunday One Judge gave our chicken triple 9's and another 2 9's and an 8. So over all we were happy with the results for only cooking in competitions once a year.
      So now we are getting ready for a RIB U Class. It never stops.
      I am also thinking of a weekend class of smoking a Pork Butt and other goodies if we can get 4 couples together. Let me know if anyone is up to it. Thanks and Happy Smoking, Don

Rib U 2

Happy St Patrick's Day from all of us at   The Captain's Quarters Inn.   Lots going on here at the Inn. This weekend we have a great group of people for our Mystery Weekend, Everyone is out looking for clues throughout the village on this wonderful mid 70's day and Chef Diane is prepping for a festive meal tonight. Wiley and Daisy are busy running from window to window chasing birds and squirrels and Max is getting ready for his run. I am also setting up the Pit area for our RIB U 2 Class that is starting on Monday March 19th and is running until October 30th. We sold about 150 Rub U 2 packages with Living Social and so many more people have called to say that they missed out that we have opened up some more dates and I gave LS 100 more packages to sell, They will go on sale this Monday the 19th of March for 8 days. So don't miss out. Enjoy your weekend. Don

Valentines Day

Don't Forget Valentines Day at the The Captain's Quarters Inn  Diane is thinking up a wonderful Dinner for that festive Tuesday February 14th Evening. And why not stay a night or two and make it a Mini Vacation. If you stay two nights Daisy said that she will take 50% off your room for the second Night. Sounds like a deal to me. Don't argue with Ms. Daisy.

It's RIB U 2 Time

I'm Back to The Captain's Quarters Inn  From my trip to California. After catching up with old friends, tasting some great new wines for the cellar, Eating some wonderful food and also helping a friend with his new vineyard in Paso Robles it's nice to be back. However the best part was meeting up with some west coast pit masters. A good friend and fellow pit master himself Dana Myers put on a RIB U Class last weekend for about 30 people, Also in attendance were famous BBQ teams Plastered Pig and Smokehouse 10. Lots of good BBQ and wine Thank you all. Which brings me to the point that our RIB U 2 Package will soon be posted on Living Social some time in early February, With some new Rubs,Sauces and a little surprise. So keep your eye out.
