    Cook????? Oh man I just realized....... I may have to up my order of ribs from Sonny's. .....

    I am still trying to figure out the camper thing........ I may offer to pqy the FIL to tow his down and back....cheaper than renting or buying one...... worst case, ill tent it by my self, because the others will bail....

    ok boys and girls.. getting down to crunch time (almost)... Was thinking about doing the Maple Bourban ham.. but if were gonna do a whole hog I might back off on that... what's y'all's thoughts ?? Thinking about doing a couple of beer can chickens Thursday night ? have some other thoughts as well.. waiting to hear from others...
     
  7. I'm thinking about doing a brisket on Friday, but that's about all I've planned so far.

    Probably play it by chance the rest of the weekend.

    I have not put much thought to what to cook. I am sure I can figure out how to call Sonny's for delivery........

    I will wing it unless there is something someone wants me to make...... I am still trying to think of a suce for a pulled pork ravioli.......
    I can make potato gnocchi one of the lighter nights.....
    The smoked beef stroganoff was really good....... maybe that...... still really not sure.....

    I did find someone who has a tent I can borrow, just need an air mattress. Looks like Amazon shopping in my future....... Talked with my dad, he is now possibly backing out, they donhave a lot of other stuff going on. Due to tent and school, wife may just drive down for Saturday.....

    I might have a spare air mattress, i can check tonight

    As for meals...

    - Beer Can Chickens on Thursday sounds good. I have a couple in my freezer i could donate as well.

    - For the whole pig, i was gonna put that on Saturday AM and make it be dinner, along with sides that people are making

    - The ham could be the Friday Welcoming Dinner/snack as people who are coming in that night arrive as we've done in the past? We could also just do something different for Friday night

    Looks like it'll just be me coming.  My smoking buddy Tony will in in Ohio meeting his new granddaughter, and my wife really isn't to smoking that much.  So I thinking about just buying a cheap tent and and heading over.  Would I need to reserve a spot for a tent?  I also have a 10x10 shade thingy that I can bring for use wherever for whatever.  Won't be able to bring the smoker, so cant really contribute anything unless I can think of something to make up ahead to bring in a cooler that doesn't need heated.  I could dust off the old bread machine and make a couple of loaves.

    I think I will be ok with the mattress, we needed to get a spare guest bed anyways.

    For the food let me know what you want me to contribute. I am planning on getting there Thursday afternoon and leaving Monday morning. Now if we have all the rainy weather again, that might change a little..... don't want to get sick before we get busy again at work. Still crazy busy now......

    Was anything decided on if we were doing comps or not? Saw a lot of discussions about it, but now firm answers.....

    We have 2-3 tenting spots plus spare room in the gathering spot so we should be ok, unless the rangers want to get strict on us. In the past we've buttered up the staff with bbq to be lenient with us but HH staff dont ever seem to eat
    No final decision was made. Let's see a show of hands of who wants to compete in a Chicken Comp? And those that want to can do that Saturday and that can be part of lunch. I think a side/something-special for dinner would be a good way to ensure we have sides for the pig dinner. 

    I'm all for the Drink and Sauce competitions because those are easy. I think i'm gonna stay out of comps (except for drink and sauce) and enjoy cooking the pig, talking and beating Ron and Keith in bean bag toss ;) 

    ...just my 2 cents
     
  13. I won't be competing in comps. Just relaxing for the weekend.

     I'll make a side dish in the DO for the Saturday pig roast. Cornbread casserole usually turns out good. Maybe a cobbler too.

    Looks like we'll be coming on Friday but not sure what time we'll be rolling in. If it is early enough I'll make something for Friday also.  If we get in too late I'll just practice for the cocktail competition.

    Craig... sounds good...

    what if I brought my grinder and somebody brings a boston butt to grind up so we'll have some fresh breakfast sausage ?? I'm sure we'll be having breakfast ??

    Sounds like a great idea, I'll bring a B butt. Breakfast is my favorite meal.

    I'll probably have some venison to bring as well.. maybe some deer and pork breakfast patties?
