    That's cool Delta. Did you corn the brisket yourself? What rub recipe do you use? I am searching for a good one.....

    That's a good idea Hillbilly.......or on another note, maybe Robb and I could organize something over here on the east side later in the summer? Would that interest anyone?

    I think that article might have mentioned how to corn your own, but I'm sure there is plenty info out there on that process

    If I can make it I would be interested. I did one in September last year with friends and neighbors so I'll do that again to. Right now I'm really just trying to get as many people to the June 6th one as I can. It's the big one so hopefully we get a lot of the msg members attending. So far it's looking promising.

    So far it looks like Deb and I will be able to attend the June 6th one....unless....

    I'm not sure, but I think one or two grandkids may be graduating this year.  Or next year.  Grandpa's  memory is faulty.

    Will have to check with Deb and step kids, before committing for sure. 

    As soon as I know, I will let you know.  I'm hoping we can make it.

    Sept could get weather iffy. With school starting and all a small window would probably be in for me. Especially if I plan on camping overnight!.

    It's just so busy in June. Man this sucks!

    Sorry the eastsiders can't make it. I'm sticking with my plan of June 6th as I've already let dozens of people know. I avoided July and august because it sucks when it's crazy hot out. we did one in September last year so regardless if it's advertised as a msg event on this page or just the neighbors, family, and friends like last year the barn will be Rockin in sept. Good luck with your party.

    Oh I totally agree that we should still keep the June gathering as The "Official" Michigan smokers gathering,.....I was just throwing out a suggestion/alternative in order to get a feel for the idea.

    I'm not even really sure where we would host an eastsider gathering. My house would be ok, but parking can be an issue. I was also thinking maybe a Metropark like Stoney Creek or Metro Beach (Lake St. Clair Park), but there is an entrance fee involved with that which can be a deterrent. So unless I have a "eureka" type of an idea, it might not even happen b/c summers are a very busy time.

    I still haven't been to "The Way Out Here Ranch" yet, so it is definitely on my summer to-do list for this year; be it June or September.

    I believe Humdinger and myself were implying " in addition to the June 6th get together " one thrown on the east side to host the west side would be something we could do for all.

    Not trying to move the awesome party. And the point made with location is just. Unless someone here has property it would be a neutral location if it took place.

    Now as for the June 6th weekend, I am trying to work out how the heck I could do it , enjoy myself , stay the night but attend my sons graduation day on Sunday morning. It would be a struggle for me to pack all up and go. I will see. I hate missing events due to the powers that be.

    I took it as "another party" guys. No sweat. Sorry you can't make it. No ill will over here.
     
  15. More parties?  Sounds good to me!

    I did some light research on a local park over this way (Riverbends Park) and it still seems like someone's house would still be the way to go. Park pavilions cost $$ to rent and electrical and water hook ups are scarce. I'll keep digging to see what else I can find.....
     
  17. I would guess a house is the way to go also.  It is almost a three day affair with prep, party and teardown.  Not to mention a 12-16 hour butt smoke..

    Yeah, that's a great point. We'll see. Maybe an opportunity to have it at my house will pop up.

    Bought a 15 pound packer brisket for the June 6th smoke the other day.

    I'm thinking I'll need to start the brisket Friday evening. Any suggestions?
