    Ok, well my wife has gotten involved in this thing[​IMG] Anyway she has informed me she is inviting some neighbors as reciprocation, and my son is inviting some friends from college, girls I believe. When we send out the invites, it will stipulate everyone must bring a dish and must RSVP. I hope this is ok with everyone. If you are attending please invite/bring spouses and kids or other immediate family. I don't want it to get too large but I don't want anyone excluded too. We live in a normal modest house but will do our best to accomadate/host everyone, so all we ask is to RSVP so we have a head count and what they will be bringing. I don't want the "cookers" to have to bring everything, we want to spread it out. I will have all three going, the CBer, the verticle, and the gas grill, to cook up some dogs, hamburgers for the kids or whoever.

    I am currently working on a menue/items list.

    If you have any other ideas, please let me know.

    Also here is what I think in terms of time.

    People cooking should arrive early to "get things going"
    Then others can start arriving around 1ish or so.
    Swim, play games, snack, etc....
    Serve the "Q" around 5:30 eat, have desert, relax.

    If you have any other thoughts please let me know. This is going to be a great time for all and give everyone a chance to meet new friends AND best of all...HAVE SOME GREAT Q!

    Input please.....[​IMG] and yes input from ALL forum members is welcome.

    Oh, I forgot to mention, you can bring pre-cooked stuff and warm it back up in the oven. [​IMG]

    Count me in, I plan on rolling in before the sun comes up (6am or so if that works for you) with the Stumps in tow, unload and get after it. I was planning on cooking a butt and 3 racks of spares, but can do more or different items if need be, will bring a 10 x 10 EZ Up for some shade, table and 6 chairs. Will come prepared with everything I need to get the job done, won't be hitting you up for supplies.

    Got a wife and two kids that will be willing to show up in the afternoon pending sports schedules. I will confirm once I get the game schedule for them...........but barring games they will stop by.

    When I mentioned it to my wife she said "oh, am I invited on one of your little blind dates". LOL Maybe I should just keep her smart ass at home. [​IMG]

    Sounds like it will be awesome. Unfortunately, the EMPLOYER will require my services that weekend. I am extremely jealous![​IMG] You guys have fun and remember to post many many pics of all tht delicious food!
  11. The bad news for me is a major server deployment that day here at work. I will not be able to attend after all [​IMG].

    The good news is that they are taking us to the Buc's game the next day for working Saturday.
