Hey folks! Sorry for being AWOL i've been super busy with work, travel and other stuff! Been getting into alot more food vending events in Gainesville so that's been keeping me busy.

Added Sharon and Jenny to the #1 post. Jenny did you change your "jenny0" username or create a new one? I could not find it to tag
Ready also! Is it November yet?

Anyone have any recommendations for something they want to see done this year that we did not do last year? Pig cook? Open Fire Cooking? Sometime of Snout-to-tail type cooking? Pickling demo?
