    Hillbilly is bringing ABTs, and beans. Of cores a fattie or two as well. I'll be in the middle of moving around then so I doubt I'll be able to bring my smoker. I was hoping to buy it's probably gonna be hard.

    I will bring 5-6 racks of  baby back ribs.  2 Fatties and a rabbit for the pressure cooker. Oh and some cheese and crackers to snack on.

    I can bring my MES 40 and a charcoal smoker.

    Also planing to bring 2 canopy's in case of weather, 10 tables, 60 chairs and one ice table.

    Cam what time are you starting the brisket? 
     
  5. Not sure on the brisket yet. Need to do some homework. Might have to get up early for that one....

    Early or start it Friday night depending on how big it is.
     
  7. I am going to start small. No reason to cut my teeth on a $50.00 piece of meat. Or maybe I should try an all night smoke??

    All night smokes are awesome!

    Then again I've failed twice on brisket. Humdingers buddy who was at your place last year said he has brisket down.
     
  9. The way I see it, the gathering is a place to meet some new people and try some new smoke. If the brisket does not turn out, well then you guys will have something to razz me about for a year....

    Hello All.

    As of now, just myself is attending. I will be bringing my Weber Smokey Mountain. I do think a late Friday evening arrival could happen. I will be bringing my entry to the Fattie throwdown.

    . It will be my first attempt. Main dish is pork shoulder and some buns for sammitches. I as well will try a side. Either Bacon wrapped cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers. Or bacon onion rings. ( this is I will try )  I as well hope to have a few growlers of some craft beer for some sampling . I do enjoy a cigar while sitting. I am not sure if anyone else indulges. I will be starting the shoulder around 4-5 am to insure a rest period for dinner. And may whip up some of my sweet coffee bbq sauce or tangy pepper sauce. If there is any other info needed please feel free..

    TTYL  ps check out my fathers day gift!

    Nice gift RobbQ!

    I have the jalapeños covered but if you wanna make more feel free.
     
  13. That is a fancy looking rig there RobbQ! Bacon onion rings? That sounds good!
     
  14. The 2014 gathering has now been made official. I just reserved the porta potty. Thought I should tell you all. :)

    Good thinking Cam, if Rockstar makes those Jalapeno's stuffed with saracha meat again, you may need some extra blue water.......! LOL

    I'll be doing country ribs again. I just did some this past Sunday so I have them dialed in pretty good. Ok Cam, I'll ask the wife to whip up her Mac and cheese again. She usually bakes it, but I think the smoker really puts it over the top.

    I'll have some rack space in my smoker for others to use if needed. It'll be purring along at about 250 degrees for most of the day so if anyone else wants in on that, LMK.

    I'll also bring the corn hole, washer, and ladder ball games again too.

    I am new to fancy smoking and this forum. The get together sounds fun. How do I get involved and participate. Were is it located? Am I supposed to bring my smoker?, or can I chip in some cash to help those cooking to defray the cost. I built my first reverse flow smoker this winter and use it at a camp ground were we are seasonals, I am learning the cost of cooking for large crowds.
