I just saw this post, I am new to the group and would like to come! We is the deadline for headcount?
Michigan Q gathering - Page 2
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
We need more participation from hungry Michigan people. Breakfast fatties with coffee sounds great.
I won't be able to camp but live close enough I can help set up fri evening. Eat and drink sat then come back for fatties and clean up sun.
Never tried a fatty, figured that weekend would be a good time to start. :)
I'm thinking about bringing some pork shoulder blade country ribs Meijer had on special. I have about 13 lbs and they're boneless. I think that should be enough with the other food there, but we can cut them in half to make them stretch if needed.
I probably won't get there until 12 or 1pm on Saturday, but if I prep them at home that morning and arrive with them ready to go right on the smoker, that should be ample time to cook/smoke right? Jeff usually does his for about 3 hours, so I think it should be good.

Just confirming what you wrote above. 3 for me (2 adults 1 child) and the pork shoulder country ribs. Also I'll bring my corn bag toss (cornhole), ladder ball, and washer toss games for extra entertainment.
Dont forget the mac n cheese!!!!

It looks as if I my have to work, not sure just yet and the bad thing is I won't know till the last min. However if I do come I would be bringing 1 other person and also I would do a desert like a cheese cake or some homemade pie. I'm very sorry for not being able to make a honest comittment at this time .
I hope it works out!
Some things I recommend you bring:
Bring your own drinks. We all like some thing different, makes it easy...
Lawn chairs always go well around a campfire
Bug spray. Yes bumper crop of mosquitoes in Michigan this year.
