Few of you are probably familiar with the Rochester Americans (the Amerks) AHL hockey team, but it’s a tradition for the Feerick family and co. Every year, the day after either Thanksgiving or Christasmas, depending on when we have to visit…I mean get to visit…we get the whole squad and go watch the Amerks play.
The best part about this is the meal before hand…at the famous Dinosaur BBQ in downtown Rochester. There is also a location in Brooklyn and Syracuse, and their BBQ sauce is sold across the country. It’s a awesome, honky-tonk joint serving up delicious bbq, good portions, and a decor and atmosphere you won’t find anywhere else. I giant smokers are visible from the street and the inside is covered with memorbilia, most of which is graffiti written all over the walls by loyal Dino fans.
In years past, I’ve always ordered a large meal, but it was usually grilled chicken breast with sides of applesauce. This year I decided to branch out. Trying to set an example for Tracy, my little sister, I ordered the half chicken with rice and beans for sides…and I actually ate some of the cornbread. Tracy has began to show very similar behaviors to thoes that I did (and some still do) when my eating disorder was taking shape . As a family, we have been able to catch her early on it, but as I am well aware, that person can deny there is anything wrong and its hard to force someone to eat. Anyways..
I asked the waitress if I could have 2 breast quarters instead of a breast and leg half. I expected to have to pay more, but she acted like it normal and hooked it up! Here are some images of my meal, cousin Jason’s meal (the Big Ass Pork Plate) and my cousin Colin’s meal (Tres Hombres–“A spirited serving of Bar-B-Que pork, Texas Beef Brisket (sliced) & Bar-B-Que ribs”). Try not to salivate
If you ever get a chance, go!
