What town is it? I love BBQ! and I love freedom (oc).Hey folks. I live in a small town in Eastern North Carolina. I was born and raised here and now I'm currently raising my family here. Growing up, it was the kind of place where people left their doors unlocked when they left the house. As a matter of fact, some people found it offensive if you locked your doors! They thought that meant you didn't trust your neighbors or the other people in your community. It was a great little town. It still is, but it's not like it use to be. Being out in the "boonies", there isn't any law enforcement and the bad men have figured that out. Every few months, a new string of break-ins and thefts get reported. This has been going on since I moved back here after leaving the Army. One of the elderly ladies in the community even woke up to a gun in her face on one occasion. I'm fed up and so are quite a few of the other folks in the community. So... I'm trying to get some things going and one of those things is an OC BBQ to kind of get folks together and start the ball rolling on taking our community back. Obviously it will take more than a bunch of folks filling up on pork while "strapped" to put things in order around here, but I'm hoping this will get the momentum going. Was hoping anyone with experience putting these things together could give me some pointers, like some do's and don't's of OC get-togethers. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
