    SWEET. Can't wait. It's my busy season now but I will do everything in my powers to keep the BBQ on my calendar.
    My customers would have to pay a righteous premium to get that date away from me hahahaha

    One last Q, will there be power there for my MES? If not, no biggie, I'll just bring the stick burner :)
  4. Pleanty of power for the MES.

    I think Seasonedlazyman said he was bringing a big smoker.  I can bring one or two small charcoal smokers.

    Please if everyone coming can give us a idea of how many adults and kids that are coming with you and what food you are bringing will help the planing.

    I am going to bring my wife and Dron with me and I will bring BBRs and of course Cheese, crackers and watermelon.

    Also I will bring tables and chairs, Canopy's and a smoker.

    The gauntlet has been thrown down and I am stupid enough to pick it up.  You are on Scott I will take your challenge and bring a fattie to smoke. [​IMG] What are the rules and do we have to have a box with lettuce for presentation?    Now I will have to make a fattie every weekend till the party to find the one that will win.  My granddaughter thinks a Peanut butter and jelly fattie would win...

    We might have to have a smoker just for fatties.  Anyone else?

    Alright Stan! Now were talking!

    No lettuce box. As far as rules go we will have to pick out three judges and have them judge based on taste and appearance. Of course it will be a blind taste test so the judges won't know who's is who's.

    Sound good?

    Anyone else getting in on this?

    PB&J fattie huh Stan? Make it cause if you do I like my odds! Lol!

    Perhaps we can make it an 80s hair band dress up event?..lol
    Well I thought of staying somewhere close. If not even pitch a tent if there is room. .I would feel better both having some drink..and staying put. I will be traveling from Macomb Twp. Probably 1-1/2 hr trip I would estimate. .. like the idea of a fatty..it would be my first! Unless we are speaking of dating. .hahaa

    Sounds good to me Scott…but what... size doesn’t matter? 

    Been thinking I might just skip the jelly then add a little sugar to the PB then some chocolate and end up with a peanut butter cup fatty with a raspberry glaze.   Bet you are getting worried now…

    If I bring a rabbit can we try smoking it in the emerson.  If it comes out good I want to buy one.
    80’S hair band…. Well I think Cam and his crew might like that. 

    There is plenty of room for a tent so no problem there.  Hope you join in doing a fatty they are pretty easy and fun to make.  Scott just made his first and you have plenty of time to practice before the party.  

    Its great that you are bring your WSM we just might need all the grate space we can get.

    Hahahaha! You crack me up Stan! Of course size doesn't matter! It's not the size of your bait, it's how you wiggle your worm! lol!

    Oh yeah I'm worried! Peanut butter cup fattie sounds like it'll take it! Lol!

    I don't mind if you use the pressure smoker at all. I've only used it the one day and everything seemed overdone so we will have to guess on how Long to smoke it. Trial and error my friend. I'll bring it to the Q.

    Is this your official entry to the fattie duel RobbQ? If so that's awesome!

    Anybody else? Cam??? Humdinger??? Y'all getting in on this fattie throwndown???
