Dads and Barbecues

June 15th, 2012 by Chris Henry

Father’s Day and barbecues are a tried and true tradition. Around Manchester, it’s not steak and brats on the menu, but salmon. The town’s annual salmon bake, now in its 44th year and run by Friends of the Manchester Library, is steeped in tradition. From what I hear, it’s like a class reunion for old-time Manchester residents. Funds raised benefit the library.
When: 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Sunday
Where: Manchester Library
Cost: $14 for adults, $10 for children 6-11 years and $5 for children under 6.
Info: (360) 871-3921;

In other Dad’s day BBQ news, Bible Baptist in Port Orchard will be enticing dads to its 10 a.m. service with drinks, snacks and a free barbecue after the service.
When: 10 a.m. to noon Sunday
Where: 6703 Bethel Rd. SE, Port Orchard, WA 98367
Cost: free
Info: (360) 876-0602

And in Port Ludlow, dads can learn to barbecue “low and slow” with Chef Dan Ratigan of the Resort in Port Ludlow.
“Learn to clean, rub and slowly cook pork shoulder, beef brisket and whole chickens to make them tender and flavorful.
“Following the class, guests will share a grilled meal on the veranda with an optional wine pairing of robust grill-friendly reds from Argentina, France and Washington.”
When: 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: 1 Heron Road Port Ludlow, WA 98365
Cost: $39 to $59
Info: (360) 437-5160

    What kind of meat is “streak & brats”. Must be exotic. LOL

  2. Chris Henry Says:

    Yeah, Colleen, it’s beef on the hoof, running really fast.

    Thanks for being observant. I will correct the error.
