    Mike.. I was thinking.. if people wanna bring a few boston butts and then help grind, mix, stuff, smoke... that way there would be plenty to take home... plus ya get the experience of making sausage... I don't know if you already do or not.. but it's a great learning experience... as this is what we try to accomplish at these gatherings... to learn new tips and tricks....
  10. Been gone on an RV trip and ya'll have been busy while I was gone.

    To the sausage GODS: I'll bring a couple butts for sausage, is there anything else you need me to bring?


    Doug, I've got plenty of wood, what do you want oak, or pecan? I haven't decided yet if I'm going to bring my big smoker, do you think we'll need it? If not I'll just bring my MES for the comp cooking. Was going to bring the pieces to set up and do a whole hog cook, but with sausage making this year maybe we'll do that next year.

    I do not know how to make sausage yet.   What size Boston Butt would be needed to make sausage?
  13. Mike, any size will work, larger size=more sausage, but do not smoke them tho.

    Mike.. as Ron said.. do not smoke the butts... fresh, raw, butts, ice cold...
  16. Nope, no set back, just a 4000 mile trip with several site seeing stops. But we had a good time.

    It is always nice to get back home though.

    Hey Ron,

    Not sure if you'll need the smoker...sounds like a bunch our bringing there own and i'll have my trailer. Only problem my be competition time if alot of people wanna all use mine...maybe we'll do a smoker head count and who needs to share space to see the needs

    Either Oak or Pecan will be just fine. i'm actually heading to Gainesville here soon so i might be able to get a truck load, if that's the case i'll be fine :)

    Guess its good time to share the news....i actually accepted a job in gainesville so in the next 2 months i'l be making my way back home from Fort Lauderdale! I'm pretty excited about i the move!

    I have a good bit of seasonings I'm going to bring, we can use some if wanted and the rest will be giveaways. ( I have to start really watching my sodium and I don't think pre-mixes are very good for me)

    I'm also planning on bringing 2 or 3 butts (pernil style) to smoke for PP for everyone so I will need to borrow someones smoker.
