BBQ Heaven

The team had a pretty hard training day today, with the squad splitting in half for two, 45-minute sessions in the morning and then a team training in the afternoon. Their reward? A fantastic BBQ meal at the Reddick household. Cat Whitehill (maiden name Reddick) is from Birmingham, Alabama, which even the casual fan knows as Cat LOVES Alabama. It's become sort of a tradition when the team visits Birmingham to go to the home of Phil and Anne Reddick, who are always wonderful hosts and treated the team to a D-licious BBQ meal of ribs, brisket, chicken, pulled pork, slaw, potato salad, baked beans, pickles and numerous beverages, including of course, sweet tea. Don't even get us started about the desserts. In fact, we can barely reach the computer to write this Blog as the belly is so full of good eats. So, thanks to the Reddicks and Cat for being such great hosts, as well as to Full Moon BBQ, who catered the fantastic meal. (Did you know they smoke that brisket for 10 hours?). It certainly was nice to get out of the hotel for a good meal and some relaxation on a warm spring night in Birmingham.
