    Many of you have asked what you can bring Sumosmoke has a list of what I have already and what we will need and she will work all that out so please get with her about it and not me.

    Those that make their own BBQ sauces how about bringing a bottle and we can sample and swap them.

    Also please bring your own lawn chairs I have enough chairs for inside but not enough lawn chairs.

    Jerry,

    I am trying to decide what I’ll need to bring so maybe you can give me an idea of your plans for this gathering

    Should I bring my smoker and wood?

    Do you split it up and have everyone cook a meal or do you like to keep the kitchen communal and prepare meals together?

    Al I have a Lang 84 a GOSM wide body propane and a electric ECB here at the camp. I have oak, cherry, and pecan here also.

    I have two whole pigs
    I have two venison hams
    I have some venison back-straps
    I have some whole chickens
    I have some big cans of beans to make Dutch's Beans
    I have eggs
    I have bacon

    I think we will smoke a bunch of stuff and all eat well. Eggs an Bacon for breakfast or we'll figure out something [​IMG]

    Sumosmoke is handling the "what can I bring" end of it so you'll have to get with her on that one. It seems to work well for us using this method and I can spend more time getting stuff ready here.

    Great,

    That means I can travel lite. I'll pm her to get on her list

    Al
     
  20. I was figuring I'd make up a big old batch of venison sausage gravy and biscuits one morning. Should be simple enough to make up plenty for everyone to get a belly full.
