    Good Morning Everyone! Sorry i've been super busy and not on the forum much but wanted to give this  a little bump :)

    Anyone have any suggestions/ideas for this years gathering of maybe something we haven't done before that could be fun for all? Any kind of competition? learning suggestions?  Ideas for a "large cook", meaning something like a whole pig, low country boil, clam "bake"? Just throwing ideas out:)

    Can't wait!

    Yum! John and I made our 1st batch of sausage stuffed in casings. Not bad for beginners, no way to smoke however. Dream of Nepas pepperoni chips, could eat a ton.

    Doug I smoke water one time in a stainless steel bowl froze it in a ice tray and put in a friends drink I made him of his favorite Bourbon , he was shocked what a nice smoky flavor it added ...............................Now I have to do all the time when he comes by

    Haha, nice! I've made a smoked cherry, bourbon lemonade where you smoke cherries first, then blend up with triple sec, lemonade and bourbon with the cherries...that's good!

    So disappointed. I have a wedding in New Hampshire that weekend so I won't be able to attend. Next time, I'm in for sure!!
     
  16. Thanks to Carol for leading me in this direction! I believe I'm going to join the group for the weekend. Is there anything specific I need to do or bring? I don't have a smoker yet, so will contribute by way of DO Mac&Cheese

    @griz400  and @RDel90, that's to bad y'all cannot make it but keep watching to see all the fun and try to join us next year! :)
    Sounds good Craig! Cant wait to meet Sydney. Maybe i'll bring Tacoma this year
    Welcome Jenny! Feel free to bring anything you'd like to cook but you dont have to bring anything as well. We'll have a bunch of smokers around if you need cook space or welcome to bring your own. As we get closer we'll talk more about a "menu" but we keep it pretty open and food just comes out throughout the event! 
     
  19. Yes, I just booked site #74. I don't have a smoker yet because I can't make up my mind on which one I want.  I'm hoping I can learn some things from all of you on this event!  I am really excited!

    Awesome, we are filling up sites!! I'll put together a "meet your neighbor" map this weekend with people real names and sites (way cooler than name tags right?!)

    @nimrod  (Craig) and @ojenny  (Jenny) i've got your info updated on the Page 1 Attendees table :)

    Things are shaping  up for the biggest SFL Gathering yet!
