I am ordering the meat this week.  Will get 2 butts and 2 briskets unless I hear different.  Gotta regroup after 2100 mile drive roundtrip to see the new grandson and take inventory of my old bones.  LOL

I just ordered from Butcher and Packer a few spices I was low on and changed the ball on my reciever to accomadate the Lang.  I will premake the Rub and such.  Meat will be purchased for pickup next week just before the gathering.  I believe Dave and Ruby are still coming and David is lining up a motel close by.  Getting to crunch time and I have a lot of catch up at work this week since I was gone all last week.  The grandkids are great!

Long term weather forecast for the event is GREAT.  Highs during the day in the low 80s and overnight lows in the low 60s.  New Moon weekend, Jupiter at nearest point in 12 years,   Gorgeous if it holds up. 

The big project I was involved in for work has been basically completed and will not start up again until after the event so I will be spending a good bit of time at the farm.  Still need to gather campfire wood, mop floors, bring cooking utensils, mostly small things left to be done.

Picking up the bellies for the Steens cured bacon Monday and will start the cure that afternoon.    Most of the non-perishables have been purchased.  Just want to cut grass a couple of more times and clean out the summer time garden.  Weed eat around the fruit trees and cut walking paths through the other side of the property. 

I was able to split the smaller pieces of Pecan I have but the large pieces have not dried enough yet so Rick please bring your fuel.

Looking forward to it,   12 days and counting.

Considering it's our first event looks like we will have a nice little crowd for Saturday.

I will be getting the Pecan ready this weekend and an oil change.  Packing my Cater Box for transport and have ordered the meat for pickup next week.  Darran from the Q joint may have a cater gig that weekend but if not may make a day trip for Saturday.  Should be plenty if he shows up so I dont see a prob with a drop in.

No problem with drop ins  we will have more than enough food to share with anyone that shows up.  Seating for the LSU game however is determined by who made the commitment first.!

I picked up about 18lbs of prk butt and 12 lbs of brisket flats only tonight.  All tucked in the fridge awaiting the cooler tomorrow.  Sandy is making roll dough tonight and transporting tomorrow.  We are all packed and will load about 1130 tomorrow and try and get on the road by 1230 at the latest.  That should put us in the area around 2 or 230.  Looking forward to seeing you all.  Ruby is bringing her tent and coming later that evening after work.  I believe David is now not coming until Saturday as a day trip. 

Later all.
