2016 Michigan get together Fattie contest at the way out ranch. (Fowlerville Michigan) July 23rd - Page 4

post #61 of 95

I'll bring some high top tables. I'm planning on arriving between noon and 2. My wife has to run some errands in the morning and I never know what is going to happen with two little kids around. I'll get there as soon as I can. Dave might be coming along too.


I'll bring my smoked homemade mac and cheese too. What else do you think we need in terms of food/sides?

post #62 of 95
sounds good dinger. Your Mac n cheese always goes over well. Any other sides you want to bring will be appreciated. I know we're making a pasta salad, regular salad, fruit salad, and ABTs.

Wow! Sounds great. You guys are such great hosts.

Tomorrow is the day.   I made and smoked two pans of beans today. :pot:     We can reheat them in the oven or a smoker.          ( I think beans are always better the next day )   I also made a fatty for the contest. :yahoo:  I will bring two of my master forge smokers just in case.


My Buddy D-ron is going to be my designated driver and we will be there around noon.  Scott did you get extra beer cause I am drinking tomorrow. LOL



See you all tomorrow!!

pork butts are at about 175 degrees, both briskets have been for about 4 hours. RobbQ, my wife, and I just pre made 60 abts and we will start a few more brisket points in the morning.

The two packer briskets have been moved from the barrel to the new mes for the night.

The other mes still has the two pork butts in it and they are slowly climbing and rendering fat away. Sorry I forgot to take a pic of them.

Stan I'll have the wife buy another case of beer.

To all members-
This event was absolutely fantastic. I'm not sure how much more fabulous it could ever grow to. But it can. Anyone thinking at all about attending a fattie event, for the members in this group, friends or visitors, you must seriously consider it. 2 years ago I joined and attended the first annual through this forum not knowing anyone yet still I was able to camp out at Cam's house, help him smoke and attend a fabulous event every one here are some of the best people I could meet. Only to rekindle friendships this weekend was fantastic. Hillbilly you and your wife are fabulous and threw one heck of an event I thank you again and to all the people with their donations of food the great Smokin BBQ. And all or any type of help it turned out great. I wish I could make many many more of my bacon onion rings if they pleased people like that they are delicious. Thanks Stan for the pictures.

Scott's briskets after 4 hours

Excellent gathering @hillbillyrkstr. You and Crystal really worked hard all weekend to make it a success! It was my pleasure to help out and have such a good time with such great company. It was good to see @HANDYMANSTAN and D Ron again. Also was great to see @kingfishcam again! It was tough to leave that night with such an awesome fire going. @RobbQ and I will have to pull something together on the east side soon. In the meantime, here are a handful of pics that I took.


The Gals Chatting



Prepping for final entry!

Very eloquent victory speech


No, that's not a play on perspectives,.....the flames were really that high!

Nice panoramic shot dinger! Were you standing on top of the pallets for that one?
post #76 of 95

Finished the last two brisket points last night. Wish I had gotten them done on Saturday. Guess I'm burnt end heavy for a while.
post #77 of 95

The 2016 Fatty event was a huge good time!  Great to see the east side crew again.  Sure did miss the onion rings and mac-n-cheese...


Thanks for posting the pics guys.  Hopefully this will inspire some more Michigan smokers to participate in the next gathering.

Yeah, I almost fell off trying to get down. Though that might have been the 6th beer I drank. Lol

DAMN! I'm sorry I missed that dinger! You should have camped out and had 6 more beers! Maybe next year. Thanks again for all your help.
