Scott and I traveled to Holland, Michigan this past weekend for TR BBQ XII. While Scott is a veteran of the event, this BBQ was my first—though it certainly won't be my last. Scott is at the Intel Developer Forum this week and tapped me to write the post-BBQ report. Challenge accepted.
By my estimate, we had just north of 40 people show up during the busiest part of the day, and a great time was had by all. I've uploaded all of my pictures in the accompanying gallery, and I've selected some highlights from the day for your enjoyment. You can also relive the day through the archived live stream on Twitch.
Our thanks once again to drfish and family for opening their lakeside cabin to the gerbil masses, to zgirl for preparing her amazing ribs, to just brew it! for sharing his home-brewed beers, to Shoes for his pyrotechnics, and to everybody else who contributed food and drink to the event. It's humbling to write for such a friendly and generous community of readers. We also thank Fractal Design and EVGA for their generous contributions to our prize pool.
If you were there and took pictures or video of something I missed, please share in the official TR BBQ XII thread. We'll see you all again next year!
