Welcome to our little slice of paradise! Clear Lake Shores is probably one of the best kept secrets in the entire Bay Area. Yes we are an island. We are surrounded by Clear Lake, Jarbo Bayou and the Lazy Bend canals. Plug this in to Google Maps and you'll see what I mean 29.32' by 95.01' We are about half way between Galveston Island and the city of Houston and located in north Galveston county. I will try to keep us up on all the goings on that we can walk, boat, bike or drive our golf carts to. Very few things pi$$ me off but one of them is wasting my precious time. I'll try not to waste yours. Enjoy. ab

Time to BBQ

The 5th annual Clear Lake Shore BBQ Cook Off is in the record books. I'll start by thanking the good Lord above for the absolutely perfect weather! Perfect.
Getting ready to get ready

Skooly, his beautiful bride and his hand picked team pulled off one of the most complicated events we throw around our little slice of paradise. (FYI if you're looking for an awesome, custom made, one of a kind cutting board there's a link over there on the right) And we throw a lot. Team Mann was out in force making sure everyone was taken great care of and the Rick & Sam show, as usual, provided those awesome tunes. All you cookers out there, Thanks for all your hard work and great eats.

President Dunnegan, Bravo Zulu! A couple of local boys represented the Island well. Doug and Kent of the, Pine Street Gang, Took home a handful of trophies

Yes, that's a pizza oven. Good eye.

and Big Dave Hopson waltzed away with the Chefs Choice trophy for his incredible Venison back strap.
Dave also cooked this just for fun.

I would like to give a shout out to the other winner but I don't have the slightest clue who they were. Definitely Off Islanders but definitely damn good smokers. I think i remember Dave saying he invited them. If so, good pick.

And to end it all we got this. Like I said, Perfect.
