My son is turning 6 and we're having a big part at the house on Sunday for him. We go way overboard with all 3 of our kids birthday parties. I use them as an excuse to hang out and party a little too. We should have about 45 adults and 18 kids! I'm preparing all the meat!!!
Starting today by smoking a couple nice fillets of Amber Jack for my semi-famous "Smoked Fish Dip." It take a good 24 hours to sit once it's done for the flavors to all blend, so I'm getting it out of the way this afternoon.
Sunday morning I'll start with all the real food. Planning to smoke 5 chickens (quartered) and I have about 7 pounds of drumsticks to be smoked too. Then on the grill, I'll be grilling 10 pounds of wings and about 30 spicy Italian Sausages. If I don't think I have enough, I have an extra chicken that will be ready to put on if there's room on the smoker.
Starting at about 7am as the party starts at noon and I want all the meat to be done by about 11am so I can shower and try to get some of the smoke smell off of me.
Wish me luck; this is the most people I've ever cooked for by myself!
