    Piney, I just found out my daughters are in a dance competetion in Panama City that weekend and my better half will be there with them so I might be able to make it after all. I assume cold beverages are allowed? Will have to see if I can get a day off work that Friday. Is there plenty of space for a tent? How about bathrooms? If I can work it out I'll try and load up on butts on base here. Usally 1.01 a pound or less if I can catch them on sale!

    Sumo, trying to work on my schedule and if I can make it trying to figure out what to bring to cook. Piney said he already has a case of butts. Hopefully I pick up the new smoker in a couple of weeks and have time to burn it in and can drag it over. From looking at the past pictures it looks like a free for all on the cooking?

    In all honesty, Jerry has so much food already stocked that it's not necessary to bring another piece of meat (or meats) to smoke, as well as the smoker. By no means am I discouraging you to bring something you might have a taste for, but for the most part, we are usually set and have more food than the town itself, can manage to eat in a day. [​IMG]

    Just worry 'bout getting there and bringing your beverage of choice. The rest will be taken care of. [​IMG]

    I'll know after Good Friday about the crawfish. Boiled a couple of sacks Saturday and they are starting to get a bit bigger and cheaper. Looks like Liz has to do something for the in-laws that weekend so I'll probably just leave her home.

    Anybody traveling I-10 from the west want to meet in Slidell and share a ride let me know. How about all you new Louisiana members. If you want to learn how to do it right this is the place.

    Cool glad to hear your going to make it. We are in the woods but only 10-12 miles from town if you find you need something once you get here. Its looking like we may have a pretty good turn out and hopefully a few others will decide they can make it as well.

    I won't be able to make the gathering this time. Between the cost of airfare and starting a new job, it's just not going to happen.
