    Hey All, I would like to be there but being a gas griller for years" I just started to smoke." I don't think I could  conttibute to any smoking. I would be happy to help with any set up?
  7. Hi Tobor,

    It's at Fish Eating Creek Camp Grounds about 20-30 minutes east of LaBelle.

    I'll be bringing my grill as well to cook up some standard burgers, dogs, corn

    what have ya. Might use it to do a steak or two. It would be great to have you

    join us. What kind of smoker do you have? I'm bringing my ECB, it's all I can

    fit in my car.

    There are still spots left at the grounds and there are discounts to be had, just

    read through this thread a bit and you'll find them. Or, just tell the lady at the

    grounds you're with the South Florida Gathering from SMF and I think she'll

    accommodate you.

    You're in Naples too huh? Fantastic. I'm out in Golden Gate just past Everglades

    on Immokalee Rd. Yep, I know, out there.

    Looking forward to meeting you...James

    Tobar, By all means come and join us, thats what it's all about. Come out and learn from the pro's like Al, Doug, James and the likes. It's going to be a blast. Like James said read back threw some of the post. The list of people and their doings are on page 6.

    Love me some Horseshoes and Cornhole!  I could bring my Beer Pong this the right crowd for that? :)

    Tobor we'd love to have you..having a smoker or being a pro is not a requirement!  come on out and have fun.

    I also have the group site reserved and as of now i think i'm the only one using it...haha.  so anyone who wants to set up there just let me know ( i have to let the park know because its $4 per person in thatt section on top of the reservation fee)

    Also for everyone..i'm going to try to get the "menu" schedule fixed up this weekend so we can finalize that.

  14. Newbs better be welcome as I place myself firmly in that same category.

    I just recently signed up to get ideas for a smokehouse build. No, it ain't on wheels so I won't have use of it at the event.

    My time is split between Bradenton area and near Arcadia. I know Palmetto pretty well but never hung my hat there.

  15. Just made our reservations. We got campsite C4 and staying in a motorhome.

    I'll be bringing my big smoker so we'll have plenty of cooking area. Hope we have electricity at the group area as the cooker requires it for the rottisserie. If not I'll bring some heavy cords to run from our campsite.

    Also I'll be in all 3 categories for the comp.

    See everyone there.

    LOL....i'm gonna be playing cornhole by myself! :)
  19. For the Special dish category in the competition, does it have to be something smoked or can it be a side dish like cole slaw, potato salad, beans, etc?
