tailgate success!!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well just wanted to pass along our successsful Notre Dame trip with tailgate party for 50.
First course - hamburgers, hot dogs, jalapeno hot dogs, hamburger BBQ, bruschetta, hot pepper jelly over cream cheese.

Second course - filet mignon, Dutch's maple glazed smoked salmon, Maryland crab soup, shrimp, pulled pork, potato salad, cole slaw.

We took a generator and our little electric smoker to smoke the salmon. Well after smoking 4 pork shoulders on Wednesday, we must have accumulated grease on the bottom of the smoker, well we had a fire ball inside the smoker that wouldn't go out! We had to just let it burn...btw, Taylor thermometers only go to 400* then just report temp as HI! eek.gif

Sorry I didn't get any pictures, I was slightly busy!

Sounds like you had a good time and a great menu! I hope there weren't any casualties from the fire.

Congrats on a successful tailgate, the only drawback I see is that it was at a ND game!! (just kidding)

Shell -

That's not a tailgate party that's a banquet! A mighty fine one too girl! icon_eek.gif

Glad you all had a great time - sorry about the fire though.

I hear that taylor is putting out a new thermometer in 2008 with only three readings:

The smoker went out and I couldn't get up,

If it's been here for five hours don't mess with it or lift the lid.

and "You've gone and made it cajun" . LOL......too funny....400 and then "hi".........

Hubby had singed the front of his hair, but that was about it...the smoker got soo hot that the sides and door started to concave, I thought we'd be throwing it out. Once it cooled down, they went most of the way back, now some leakage around the door though.

HaHa! You've got to be a fan through good times and bad!

Yes Deb, it was quite a spread. Already trying to think how we can out do it next year. Heading hopefully to NC to see ND & NC, a little bit closer.
We just laughed at that one, being digital, you would think you wouldn't have to program numbers in higher than 400* What if you were using it on a grill for searing steaks and wanted your temp at 500*??
