    Never made a fattie, I will give it a whirl. Is there a meat fund I can donate to? How are the sides looking? Plates, napkins, beer ect? Due to the new baby I probably won't bring a smoker unless needed, if needed I have one electric and one old school. Don't want to show up empty handed but very busy at work and with baby. Let me know

    Hello Gentleman . Busy Life. Smoked a few items and catered a few events. My son whom is Graduating has been in wood shop for the last 4 years and loves it. He made a project that gave him the county MITES competition that took him to State. He placed first in category and won the grand award. As well as a scholarship to MIAT. He designed and built a boat! We are so proud of him. So I need to share. This is his last week of his Senior year. And as I stated before, his Graduation is that weekend. Commencements on Sunday.

    Below is hiself and his boat.


    So, now the Smoke out. Since that is on Sunday morning. I am trying to work out a plan to attend in some fashion. Especially to DEFEND the hated ( winning SPAM FATTIE ! ) lol

    It would be as follows. I would show midafternoon and camp overnight. If that’s okay rkstar. As I did last year at Cam’s. ( and was and am still grateful )

    Perhaps help in any fashion again with setup. I will bring a newer and awesome version of my Bacon Onion rings to cook. Seems as if the big dinner dishes are covered. If I can do this, I might need to leave later Saturday afternoon . I will be bringing again my Weber Smokey mountain . So some space may be available if needed.   I sure hope this can roll out as I describe because it’s a great event with great people. So if this is okay Hillbilly, I would need address. I may even bring some homebrew again and sip at night on Friday evening to share with ya!

    Then and of course.   My new out of the box FATTIE!   Oh man LOOK OUT! I hope this can be judged in early lunch hours for eats.

    Take care all..

    That's fine by me rob. I haven't put any thought into a fattie yet but I will be entering one for sure. You're more than welcome to camp out just let me know when you'll be heading over. I have Friday off work.

    Hillbilly, do you need help setting up, I can make arrangements to skate out of work early if needed.

    I have all day off Friday delta. Cam's coming over Friday to help cut the lawn and stuff like that Friday afternoon. A few smokers will be started Friday afternoon and we will probably smoke or grill dinner Friday night so feel free to stop by. Not sure about set up because Stan is bringing the tables and chairs Friday or Saturday. Stop by and hang out a bit Friday if you want. Thanks for the offer .

    Sounds good. I'll hit you up for directions when we get close. In the mean time I'll be plotting this fatty deal

    I have no idea what I'm doing for a fattie Saturday. Anyone want to spill the beans on what they are bringing?

    Ok I came up with the winning fattie! Competition will be at 3pm Saturday. Good luck!
  13. hillbillyrkstr

    hillbillyrkstr Master of the Pit Group Lead

    I'm thinking 3pm for the fattie contest. That'll get it out of the way early for robbq.

    Also my barn has a few lazy boys and a couch, and dish network Robb so you can crash out there instead of a tent.

    Congrats to your son RobbQ.  Very nice boat.  Glad you are coming and bringing the onion rings.
    Maybe the winner maybe not. [​IMG]  

    Scott I am trying to make it out friday around 6-7 if that works.

    Hey Scott/all,

    The plans look like they're coming along nicely! However it doesn't look like I'll be able to make it out Saturday. The wife has something going on and I have the kids all afternoon.But if you guys are hanging out Friday night I may try to sneak out for a bit then. Fingers crossed!
  17. Just days away folks!
    Robb your sons boat is very impressive. I would love to see more detailed pics if have any.
    I am still stuck here in New Orleans being forced to eat horrible food like crab. ;) Ben in a food coma for days now.
