Were you signing your post or are you telling me I need bourbon? Or both maybe?
D. all the above
lol Mike will be there to finance the poker game.
I have to say I am extremely impressed with the members of this forum who are not able to attend but are still donating to offset the food costs for our first gathering in NC. I know there are good folks here but the donations are touching. Thanks for your support!
My 4/28 weekend just opened up. :yahoo:

Too late to join? Karol's giving me a "smoking pass" so I'd plan to arrive Saturday (as early as possible) and leave Sunday.

I'm not sure an MES-30 is a portable smoker, but I guess I could bring it if needed. Happy to bring meat and/or a cooler fuller of growlers filled with various Asheville brews.

I'm new to smoking (but you knew thab by the "newbie"). What else do I need to know? May have the oldest son with me.
