    Thanks but it can wait.................... I just dropped 45 bucks today on butts. They are on sale this week here for 1.49. Had to jump on them cause pork butts almost doubled in the last few months... I have around 8 butts in the freezer along with 4 racks of st louis style ribs.... Slowly loading up.......

    Ron said he was balancing a couple events in that same time period so he was trying to figure out if it'll work or not. Since the last gathering i bought a much smaller version of the skydome from where he got his haha. But mine is only 10x12 so not the full on 20x40 ;)

    Doug do you still have the link to the vendor you bought your tent from?

    Just made 1 set of cornhole boards, have a 2nd set built just need to paint. I am going to wait so I can do a better job on paint and cutting the hole. Did not like the results from the jigsaw.

    I am all for doing snack sticks. Let me know how you want me to contribute to the community needs.

    I got the frame from tarps.com. they sell you the top only and you get the poles from your local fencing company, shipping would be insane if you wanted the complete package

    i'm also in for snack stick making
     
  15. Hey guys my name is Lee and I was lead here by @jckdanls-07 and I gotta say wow. I live in Broward County and would love to be able to be a part of this weekend and make the trip. 

    The dates are no problem and the location is great. It'd be really cool to meet some people that share the same interest. 

    Any other information I need or anyone specific I should contact?

    Hey Lee.. glad your gonna join us... we'd love to have ya... we do a little friendly competition amongst us.. we go out in the campsite and pick unsuspecting campers to come and be the judges... it is not mandatory to do this.. we just do it for fun and to give the winner bragging rights... what's really interesting is to watch the judges.. some of them try to be all professional about it... lol... Here's some links to previous gatherings with pictures... have any questions just ask.. we'll be more than happy to answer...

    this is the inaugural gathering... was held at fish eating creek .... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/112802/south-florida-gathering-picture-thread

    this is the second one and it was at fishing eating creek as well... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/121142/2nd-annual-south-florida-gathering-nov-9th-11th

    and this was last year at Highlands Hammock... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/152174/2013-smf-south-florida-gathering-picture-thread
     
  17. Are any type of smokers acceptable for this gathering? I have the masterbuilt two door smoker that is propane and charcoal...

    It sounds like I'm gonna bring my smokehouse again and do a bunch of snack sticks and some sausage.. last year we did close to 100 lbs... i would say 80 lbs of that was all snack sticks as you can see in the pics... we will be bringing all the equipment to do these.. all's we ask is that you bring some boston butts ( a 2 pack will be good) ... that way there will be plenty to split up and take home...
     
  20. Sounds like a great time! I'm looking forward to. Are the boston butts the only thing to bring for the group?
