Encinitas barbecue a roaring success

May 30, 2012 by  

On Saturday, May 19, the San Dieguito Heritage Museum hosted “Deep Pit Barbecue Time” at its location on 450 Quail Gardens Drive in Encinitas, California, beginning at 12:00 pm. The meat on offer got rave reviews from those in attendance, including organizer Chuck DuVivier.

This was the 24th annual deep pit BBQ experience, celebrating San Dieguito and the area’s local heritage and history, and it returned after a three-year absence. Contributors to the barbecue included Adeline and Richard Bumann, who were recipients of the “Living Heritage Award” on the day, an award they received for their hard work and dedication in preserving the Bumann Ranch.

This tasty barbecue was cooked in the ground following traditional cooking methods. Along with the barbecue itself, the afternoon featured tons of children’s events, displays of vehicles which included a fire engine from the 1950s and a 1917 Model T Ford, viewing of the museum’s exhibitions, a stage coach, and live music and entertainment from “Two of Us Plus One.” There was also a silent auction, a bake sale, and a $100 draw. Crucially, the weather was ideal for outdoor cooking, and hungry guests were able to enjoy top quality food in the Californian sun.

Flyer printing and post card printing were probably used to advertise the barbecue and boost the number of attendees and sponsors throwing their weight behind the event.
