Right - The BBQ weekend in Lincoln is almost here Thumbs Up and we need to finalise who is attending and what they are intending to bring.

 

Looking back on the thread I see that the following members have expressed an interest in attending. Please can you look down the list and either confirm that you are still planning on coming and if so how many of you are likely to come. The exact numbers of guests are not critical but we just want to ensure we have sufficient cutlery etc. If you are not on the list and are also planning to come then please let me know as well so that we can include you.

 

  • BOBBOBBBQ
  • Euromir
  • Homeruk
  • KC5TPY
  • SlimJimUK

Please remember that there is no obligation to bring anything to cook. If you would just like to come to see other techniques then that is perfectly OK. If you want to bring a dessert then that is fine too. A contribution of beer and wine is also very welcome.

If you would like to cook something on the day but are unable to bring a BBQ then please let us know as there will be some BBQ cooking space available. This will be allocated on a first ask basis.

 

Let us make this year even more successful than last Thumbs Up

Hello Wade.  Too late now for me to do brisket.  I wish I had known.  Rhinoceros is also proving hard to find.  th_dunno-1[1].gif  SO!  I figure I'll bring some pork belly, beans, sausage and chicken.  Hope this helps.  Keep Smokin!

Brother in Law, Paul will do Jambalaya
post #85 of 93

Hello Steve.  I have full confidence in your brother -in-law but it should be interesting:  An English guy named Paul making jambalaya.  It should be a Louisiana guy named "Bubba" or "Leroy" making jambalaya.  These things make me smile.  It's like ordering the Mexican plate at the local Chinese takeaway.  It may be GREAT food but it just seems "wrong" in some way.  :icon_lol:  I can offer a smoked sausage if he would like.  I can smoke a fresh sausage Friday and have it ready for him if interested,  It isn't andouille but it is in that same southern style.  Let me know.  Keep Smokin!

Hi Danny, he was there last year, but he's got some of his family with him this year, so I thought he should contribute some food, looked down the list of suggestion Wade had put up, and thought that Jambalaya would be an "easier" option. Will ask him (or Alison, as it will be her that's cooking) about the sausage.

Hi Steve.  I will be leaving tomorrow morning so please let me know tonite.  I will check SMF later and in the morning before I leave.  It's no trouble if they want it.  I won't have much to do Friday anyway.  Keep Smokin!

Hi Schminsky. If you can come you and your partner/friends will be very welcome. As Steve mentioned there is no competition - we are all there to enjoy BBQ/Smoking and learn from each other. Just before the meet we organise who wants to cook what on the day to avoid duplication and nobody is expected to cook anything they do not feel comfortable doing. Many people come to learn different techniques and to try different types of smoker. As well as the fun of smoking different things one of the highlights of the weekend is talking to others on the camp site and chattting to them as they are invited to help us eat all of the food that is prepared.

 

If you have never smoked a specific joint of meat before and want to give it a try, bring it along and we will be able to help you. 

 

It is not all about meat either as we have vegetarians who attend too. A lot of people are just not aware of the vegetarian food that can be prepared. Also some come along and bring side dishes and salads.

 

This year we also had someone turn up who we had never chatted with before who just saw that the event had been organised. He and his family turned up with his smoker and produced some lovely pork and beef.

 

If you happen to be around Brogdale in Faversham the weekend after next at their Cider festival then please do come in and say Hi. I am giving 3 smoking demonstrations there during the day on Saturday and will be there promoting UK BBQ (and selling smoked cheese and smoked salmon) on the Sunday.
