It was great to see you both there Jim. Tell Tamsin that she is a wizard with the coleslaw and potato salad . We were all so busy though that we never did get round to trying to sort out your questions with the WSM.
It was great to see members there from previous meets and also the new members. Also a special hello to Dave - who isn't actually a member of SMF (yet) but who saw the meet advertised and brought his Rec Tec pellet smoker along on the off chance - and who smoked some great Pork and Lamb with us. We also had a lot more enquiries this year from the others in the campsite about how we were smoking and I think we may have encouraged more Forum membership as a result of the meet.
A special thanks one again to Steve (Smokin Monkey) and Jill for providing the chiller trailer, gazebos, tables and cutlery and also for the great breakfast cobs with their home cured bacon.
It would not be fair to try to single out any of the smoked foods cooked on Saturday as it was all to a very high standard and all very different. I think the official judges (the other campsite residents) summed it up nicely - It was some of the best BBQ that they had ever tasted.
A belated thanks to Todd at Amazen too who supplied a number of the raffle prizes.
A couple more photos to add to Jim's...
Getting the banners ready - By the way we have still not managed to get a high definition version of the SMF logo that we can put on our banners !
Letting the campsite know what we were about
Watching the brisket. Paul put it on at about 7am but after that it had to be closely watched . Paul assured us all that the beer was necessary to replace the energy lost from such an early start
Steve Johnson multi tasking with his two BBQ smokers. He was making the spicy hot wings for our lunch on Saturday - wow were they good
"I can't understand it. It has been smoking for almost 12 hours and it is still tough !"
Thanks once again for everyone who helped make our 3rd annual reunion such a great success.
