    Yeah, I'm sure you guys have tubes. I feel the included new production tubes are holding it back.

    Oh, where at in Austin, what part? Will be getting an airBnB and making it a mini-vacation.

    South Central Austin. Between William Cannon and Slaughter (north to south) and between South Congress and South First (east to west). I'll PM you the address.

    Any other out of towners coming in for the meet, PM me for the address or any other info. Also Marv there's the Saturday night fun at Scott's house if you wanna do that.

    Also y'all for Saturday the plan is @famish99's house during the day to check out his system and maybe have a few tasty bevs. After that, machetes (really long tacos that can feed 2 people) at Machetes Dona Leova and then checking out Scott's sweet system for evening festivities.

    Saturday's extreme taco maneuver:

    Sunday's barbecue annihilation:

    Let's do barbecue Sunday at 11am and then start the meet. The line moves quickly and the moist brisket is noteworthy here. Parking can be tight so if y'all want to rendezvous at my place first and we pack as many people into as few cars as possible, we can do that.

    If we decide we ever need to eat again, we can toss around ideas for Sunday dinner during the meet. We have plenty of amazing options.

    I live near @noisyscott as well so I'm willing to host a small number of people (only because my room is tiny, unless you want to come over just for drinks) during the day Saturday as well.

    Sunday pre-meet has been decided. Terry Black's barbecue. The above post has been updated with a map link. It's a local favorite and y'all will love it.

    It's confirmed that the Weiss loaner will be there (with Noise Nuke but no LPS), so we'll be able to let everyone get ears on that too.

    @crenca is bringing his Cyan 2, so we'll be able to see just how close it comes to the May KTE with HQP applied. Hopefully it's a value king!

    We'll have a lot to get through. Maybe we'll hit it all, maybe we won't, but I can promise we'll have fun along the way!

    FWIW, I was at a concert last night and the artist said "I had the best barbecue OF MY f'ing LIFE yesterday at Terry Black's barbecue" so y'all bring your appetites and ready yourselves for some meat sweats.

    Personally, the best part about eating great barbecue is the fact that your burps taste like smoked meat for the rest of the day.

    A couple of times, we have had Black's flown out to California via Fed-Ex. So, you can virtually be at this meat. Erm, meet. :p

    Looks like I can’t make this. Too many things going on with end of school year, kid stuff, son getting DL, closing on a place in San Antonio, etc. (Hey, I will be closer during certain times of the year going forward)

    Does anyone still want me to send the Superman up? I can pay shipping to have it sent back to Donald afterward.

    I'd love to listen to the Supernaut. If you do send it up I can split the cost of shipping with you.

    Sorry you can't make it, congrats on the place in San Antonio, and I'll happily pitch in on shipping. A few people have spoken up that they'd like to hear it.

    @purr1n allow me to step in and cover shipping...Perhaps @Donald North will allow me to return to my home in New Mexico with it for about a week before I ship it back to him - with the promise of a write up of course.

    Just wanted to say that you guys (who reached out to me) are awesome in offering to cover the shipment. No need. It's the thought and willingness that counts. Generosity in spirit and pocketbook. Looking forward to hanging out with the Austin crew. San Antonio (north-ish by 1604 loop and 10) will be my place away from home on long weekends and most summer weeks.

    Maybe time for a 9th anniversary SBAF International meet in 2025. I can't believe this much time has past. We should get a big place (definitely not Austin downtown - way too pricey and parking sucks ass). Maybe @schiit (who I believe may be expanding north from CCTX) can help out and sponsor.

    P.S.

    Why am I having a place up there?
    1. Cantonese dim sum, Biryani, and Paki (place in Austin)
    2. Travelling from CCTX to LAX or LHR for work is a bitch. Even worse if Dallas is the connecting point. Also I hate small commuter planes.
    3. Closer to wine country, Austin, Houston
    4. Our parents. They are old. See #2.
    5. That steak place (also one in Austin) that has that pork dish with the parts split in three and cooked three different ways.
    6. Good pho (maybe, we will see)
    7. Place for my daughter to crash (because girl roommates are more disgusting than boy roommates)

    Looking forward to future hangs and some good food too, @purr1n. Sorry you can't make this one but we'll save you a taco for when you're closer to town!

    Just made it into town, but I'm pretty whacked out from the drive so I'm going to eat and veg at the hotel and I'll see you guys tomorrow!

    I'm here with @Pocomo listening to some tunes. We're waiting for @Vansen to get his rental car woes worked out and join us, then we're going to go get some tacos and listen to some more music after that.
