    i haven't added thursday yet but i'm going to!

    I feel like its been raining here in fort lauderdale for the past 2 weeks! But nothing big yesterday..there was some tornado damage north of me about 10 miles in coral springs
     
  2. Would a noobee from Winter Haven be welcome? I'd like to learn more about smoking from those more experienced or would that be shigging! I'm retired so I could  stay a day earlier or later to accommodate the 3 day requirement. If you moved further to Okeechobee that is going to be quite a haul. I just started using my new Grill Master Komado Kooker and have done some ribs and last night a fresh picnic that actually came out pretty goo, but I think I left it on a little too long.

    Dan... by all means you can join us... bring wife, family, friends, or whoever... If you look on the first page of this thread , all the info is there for the campgrounds.. gonna be in Sebring this year... so you might wanna call and make reservations at the campgrounds...

    This S. FL. Gathering is the exact reason I signed up to this forums.. when they were planning the first one I signed up and asked If I was welcomed... I got the same response I am giving you.... COME AND JOIN US... It was one of the best things I've done.. forums are GREAT and the gathering is AWESOME... We have even been to the N. FL. Gathering twice now and will go again next year....

    So by all means... Welcome
     
  4. Thanks for your generous hospitality. I just moved and I don't have any camping stuff, so maybe I would just come for the day. Is Saturday the biggest Day?

    yes.. Sat. will be the biggest day.... no problem.. just come hang out on Sat.
     
  6. Dan, You are most welcome to join us. It will be a good time for everyone.

    When you come into the campground ask them directions to camping site 88. That is where we will set up the big tent for the gathering.

    Looking forward to meeting you and all the new attendees this year.

    Like the rest of the guys said...your more then welcome! If you can only come for a day then saturday is the day! we'll be doing friendly cooking competitions, playing games, hangings around and throwing a few back.

    Oh and there is no longer a 3-day requirement...that was the old place we used to have this event

    So its sounds like we are going to attempt the sausage thing...i'll bring some butts to grind. sounds like a couple of you have grinders and stuffers. we'll figure out the smoking part of it between all of us, we should be able to figure something out with all the smokers and AMZN products we collectively have:)

    started a list of meals for the weekend..if anyone has something specific they want to make for any meal let mek now and i'll add it. we've never had official meals except for the competition so this is kind of a rough list...and your welcome to make anything at anytime whether your on the list or not
     
  10. Like before cook all day and eat whatever is ready. It's all gooooood!!!

    I have some sausage seasonings mixes... will bring them... they are for 5 lb batches... on the separate packages they say venison.. but on the box (5 packs per box) it says you can use 5 lb's of pork instead... one will be for a breakfast sausage...

    I plan on making my reservation tomorrow........Sites 77,78,82,83,84 and 85 are available. Would anyone have a visual what would be my best choice. Dont want one next to a playground or a toilet if you know what I mean....... Pictures don't show much on their sites...... would be nice if they had a virtual view
