5th Annual SMF Carolinas Smokers Gathering (May 13, 14 and 15, 2016) **PICS**

Discussion in 'Events' started by alelover, Jan 12, 2016.

  1. Will be firing up the smokers for another great weekend in the Carolinas. The last 4 have been really great. So save that weekend for some good food, good beer and good times.

    We hope to see all our old friends and hopefully make some new ones too.

    Check out the past 4 gatherings here.

    We will once again have it at my "Estate" in Concord, NC. We are about 20 minutes north of Charlotte in Concord.

    Map to the gathering

    Going to plan some demonstrations of who knows what again, it will be fun and educational. Built a new smokehouse and will be putting it to the ultimate test. We have a big backyard so bring your tents and small campers. Sorry no RV hookups. This is a family friendly event and we encourage folks to bring the kids along. They always have fun. There are also some hotels in the area if you need one.

    For those who have not attended a SMF gathering before it will be a weekend of relaxing, eating, and fellowship. It is a chance to meet some of the great SMF'ers you interact with everyday. You won't find a nicer group of people or better food. Last years gathering was a great success and we hope for an even better turnout this year. This year we plan on some surprise giveaways too. So please make time for a great weekend you will remember for years to come.

    [​IMG] Thinking about it. I would love to see that smoke house in action I followed you step by step in the building process. Just a few dumb questions tenters do you have portapots water for wash up etc. like I said some dumb questions. Not sure misses will come and I may just sleep in back of truck. What do you need for us to bring or contribute in the line of food or what ever other supplies you need. Actual address? I think you are about 6 hrs. from where I live. I guess a out of stater is allowed?

  16. Bring what you make well. What do you make that you like to show off to folks? That's the kind of thing we like to see. [​IMG]

    A lot depends on how long you plan to stay as well. Bring what we can cook and serve while you're here seems to work fairly well.
  17. We have facilities in our house that folks are welcome to use. And the great outdoors as well. [​IMG] We haven't gone the porta-potty route yet because we're not big enough yet. But I have a big back yard you can camp on.
  18. Oh yes Joe. Real bacon.
