HalfSmoked HalfSmoked pc farmer pc farmer .. how much burning out do you think those truck rims will need? I was figuring on throwing some wood and charcoal in and stacking them on top of each other to get the paint off. Any thoughts?

I now have a spare Weber Kettle with a Slow and Sear if anyone needs it. Let me know.

That should work it won't take much fire to burn them off.

I guess you are planning on me to bring the things I have listed in the post on page 5?

Ok there is still time for some of you to make your plans and attend this gathering. Especially some of you locals could at least attend for Saturday. Some great food planned as well as a rib contest.

For those of us not confident enough in our skill-sets yet, can we just attend and eat ( and pick information)??

Spring 2021 SMF Pennsylvania Round-Up... The Venue.
20210430_125558.jpg

Friday Night dinner had to be prepared, and served in a garage on site due to the 40-60 mile per hour winds in the area. We adapted, and overcame.

Ribs for the Great Rib Cook-Off that was held on Saturday. We were still battling 30mph winds that day, so the open cooks were not able to happen. Glad the garages were on site, because that's where we had to cook dinner again to get out of the winds. Farmer and Halfsmoked won, because the judges were local and may or may not have been being nice to me.

Dinner was able to be held in the top of the barn without having to risk the roof blowing off. Everyone that attended had a belly full of smoked foods and deserts when they went home.

Farmer, slicing up some of his Sirloin Roast... Halfsmoked had his smoked goose next to it. Not too many leftovers by the nights end.

Overall, it was a great event even though we didn't have the turnout I expected. Everyone went home with a little bit of knowledge gained, and a Great time was had by all. Special thanks to pc farmer pc farmer , his family HalfSmoked HalfSmoked and his wife for helping me with this event, and making it all come together.

Now then, lets get ready for the FALL Round-Up.
