CBBQA 11th Annual Northern California Picnic @ Frank Boyer’s Hill Top Abode
By Ben Lobenstein

It was with great pleasure that I had the chance to make it to this year’s installment of Frank Boyer’s CBBQA NorCal picnic.
 Apparently I’ve missed a few since becoming a CBBQA member, which is something I would never recommend anyone else EVER do. To be invited to Frank’s is an honor that no one should ever turn down ;). The Boyer home is located up a curvy 10 mile, 3,000 foot climb from civilization, which overlooks many small valley towns and the always spectacular Monterey Bay Peninsula.
Frank had his Little Red Smoker loaded, and running when the guests began to arrive. Frank had generously prepped and begun briskets, butts and a dozen or so racks of ribs, earlier in the day. The weather was great (with the exception of the distant fog blocking what would have been our magnificent view of Monterey Bay). The guests unloaded a feast of sides, salads and desserts to go along with the meats that Frank had prepared, all of which looked OUTSTANDING. Once we all were served, the confirmation was there, the food didn’t just look good, it tasted even better, this was truly a one 180 point feast.
With our bellies full, the location (and weather) amazing, and in the great company of fellow BBQ’ers (including Bram Britcher of 155 South Bar-B-Q, Dave Rusko of Sluggish Lugs BBQ Team, Jim Mehl, and even a local radio personality from KPIG), relaxing on a lazy Saturday afternoon one couldn’t ask for much more. I hope I’m invited back next year. No self respecting NorCal BBQ fan should miss it.
