Cookin' for the Whole Town

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
Just to get this started, we are down to 2 weeks and 2 days before my VFD does our annual July 4th brisket/sausage lunch with all the trimmings for our little community. I ordered 500lbs of trimmed packer briskets and 100 lbs of sausage yesterday. Will start cookin on thurs the 3rd and run through the night until the noon meal on fri the 4th. All meat will go on these 2 stick burners
The beast

Our new pride and joy the DPP series 70

We will start off with 15 or 20 folks hanging around for the start, but in the end there will only be 2 or 3 of us that see it through to the end.
Will get lots of pics for ya'll from beginning to end. Always a blast. If anyone's in the neighborhood cruise on out and join in, lots of beer lots of food, and the whole night and day of tbs blowin' through the canyon and across the lake.

More to follow

It really is a great time, the VFD started doing this back in the early 70's, and the all night cook turned into a freezer clean out party on the night of the 3rd. That eventually turned into a fish/calf fry , but it got to big for us to handle. 500 to 700 ppl and 20 of us, we just could not keep up. We started having the fish fry catered by a local joint and just concentrating on the brisket lunch, but there is still lots of cold beer, the gallon jug 'o'wine being passed around the cookin' circle all night long
Our town is about 1100 person bedroom community and sits in a canyon in the ever flat W. Tx plains so having the canyon and a lake is quite a "luxury" aroud here.
This is our big fundraiser for the year and the VFD usually clears anywhere from $5000 to $as much as $8000 on the 2 meals (fish fry donations, and lunch $7, children $3). All the families in the town bring desserts and or side dishes and we do brisket, sausage, pintos, potato salad, slaw and bread/tortillas with drinks (tea or bug juice).
I'm gonna take a buttload of pics from beginning to end so it should be quite the show.
Seriously though, anyone in the area and lookiin for something to do for the 4th, pm me for directions and all are welcome.

Lawdog, Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a great time. That's funny you already know you will have 20 at the start and only 3-4 who make it through the all-nighter.

Sounds like a good cause and a worthwhile effort. Good luck with the adventure.
