My name is Ogre, and I’m an addict.

We had a Kimber Desert Warrior that had come in on trade some time ago.  It’s been riding the shelf almost completely untouched for a couple months.   I remember selling the gun to the fellow years ago.   This was before Kimber took they QC Nose Dive.  I examined the gun carefully.  He carried the gun a lot, then let it ride his gun safe a lot.  But he didn’t shoot it very much.  There is only a little finish wear on the frame rails from cycling, which is nothing because we have new guns on the shelf with more.  The breach face still looks new.

My cost on it was real good.   So it went into the back on Layaway.   I’ll take my time getting it payed off… I’m in no rush to take it home.  It still has those weird yellow waffle-like grips.  I hate those things.   Those are going Bye-Bye as soon as I finish the 4473 on it.

 

Decent BBQ in the Uintah Basin

Smokey D’s BBQ joint right next to Strata in Vernal.  Where the old Polar King used to be.   I went there and had a Pulled Pork Sandwich which was the best I have had in some time.  But that isn’t saying much.  It was good.  Very good, but not Great.  There’s a distinct difference there.  Good BBQ will leave you satisfied and feeling amiable, much like how I felt there with the Smokey D’s BBQ.  I was satisfied.    However, Great BBQ should never leave you feeling like that… it should make you just want to keep eating and not stop until you make yourself sick on juicy BBQ goodness.   It should make you crave it so much that you want to go back only 2 blocks away.  That’s Great BBQ.  Also, the guy that makes the BBQ should look like he could kick your ass if you question his sauce.   Not a couple high school kids on their summer job.  But still, Smokey D’s BBQ was some very good BBQ and I’ll certainly go back.  I sampled pretty much all the meat they had… it was all very good.  In fact, it might be some of the best in the whole state of Utah.  The slow smoked flavor is there.   I can’t say that about the other BBQ place that was across the street… That was some weak stuff.

So if you are in Vernal, Utah and want some BBQ, Smokey D’s is the place.
