Just recently we headed north for a surprise birthday party. You could not ask for a better party. A surprise party for a good friend, perfect weather, and awesome barbecue. I shared a few pictures from that day. Barbecued chicken, brisket, ribs, and pulled pork. Very good brisket, I usually don't care for. Ribs that the meat falls off the bone. Pulled pork with excellent flavor. His family does it right. It is know surprise that they do. This is the family specialty. Up N Smoke Barbeque is a catering business up in Livermore. They work by referral for now, but I am sure as the word spreads more they will become a household name. Best of all, my little angels had a blast. Playing with the dogs, dipping their feet in the pool, and helping the birthday boy open his gifts. Ready to go back for more. Party!!!
