The NC Gathering was a great success. So much food, fun and great people. Perfect weather all weekend made it the place to be. Special thanks to Todd from A-Maze-N Products and Lisa B from Vacuum Sealers Unlimited for their generous donations. Big thanks to Butt Bros BBQ for the use of the smoker all weekend. The give-aways made people really happy and will get some of them started on a new hobby. Check these folks out. They are awesome at customer service and have the highest quality products at great prices.
Here are some pics.
Starting the Italian Sausage.
Ready to go in the sauce.

Marinating 2 pounds of skirt steak for the Fajitas.
Peppers for the Fajitas.
Some ABTs to go with Friday lunch.
Almost forgot a picture of the fajitas. Well what's left anyway.
Had Skirt Steak marinated in pineapple juice, soy and Dr. Pepper and a bunch of spices. Did the chicken in a Tequila-Lime marinade.
After the 1/2 hour rain storm the chips got a little moist. Thought we would dry them in the smoker with some Quesadilla cheese.
Then covered them in Gary's beans. Awesome snack.
Pork loin is ready for Friday dinner.
Breakfast sausage and leftover pork loin.
Eggs cooked in the hot box.
Prepping for Saturday dinner. Wings, Ribs, Brisket.
Did a bunch of wings. Smoked them then hit them on the hot grill. Man they were good.
Briskets hit the smoker Saturday morning.
Prepping the pork and beef for the smoked sausage Joe and I are making.
Joe is big in the pig.
