Thanks the Fowlerville Pork Producers for donating the whole hog, and smoking all the fatties! They're kind of a big deal.

Thanks to the judges! 9 judges 33 fatties! This contest gets bigger every year!

Thanks to the new guys who came out. Had a great time and you all cooked some great food!

Last of the campers rolled out about noon.

Parties over!


It was a great time. I enjoyed meeting and talking with Greg. He's a wealth of bbq knowledge and very generous.

Pork topped with southern slaw, dingers brisket, and some of stans beans did the trick last night! Wish I would have made a plate Saturday!

While my brisket was edible, it wasn't my best. I'll step it up next year for sure!

Everyone was enjoying themselves and their drinks, But there were lots of kids around so it didn't get too crazy.

I'd be more than happy to contribute $$ next year.

Agreed. I also think we should form small committees; trash wranglers, cutting board and cutlery cleaners, yard clean up crew, etc.

I would be willing to put in some K.P. duty🤓 I'm off weekends and usually have a few days vacation to burn in June.

I don't know how Scott felt, but I was the last to roll out Sunday and as I looked around found myself VERY impressed with the lack of strewn garbage trash or junk for the numbers.
I've had bigger messes after a normal Saturday afternoon BBQ.
That isn't to say I disagree with a sort of volunteer duty roster but the folks who attended were VERY considerate all on their own and did a fair job of policing their trash.

As far as collections-donations go I would be more than willing to contribute. It was such a good time, I could not imagine that people would be taken aback by a small donation. I think we have all paid cover charges at bars....and that's a waste of money. I like the committee idea and I would be willing to lend my time before, during and after.

If you Google "fishigan state shirt" or fishigan state University shirt" you'll find several places to mail order or online order them.

Thanks again everybody. While I'll never ask for more than a dish to pass donations are always appreciated. And any and all help with prep and set up the night before, or help running stuff or clean up the day of is always appreciated as well. Because of all the help Saturday cleaning up and breaking down the clean up Sunday wasn't to bad at all.

I'd just like to thank you all again. It was a blast! The biggest and best for the 5th year! Hopefully we can kick it up a notch next year.

Nice pic dinger. But this years fire was tame compared to most fires we've had out here.





This is the norm around Wonder Dog Ranch.

I had commented a few days ago about the burnt patches around the pit. Lol now I see why.

Yeah it's usually way worse rings. Not sure why it didn't get a bit crazier this year. I had nothing to do with starting or keeping the fire going. Not sure who did. I know I have about 20 pallets left over. Maybe we will have a smaller get together in October or something.
