    I am working on something new for Saturday night. I may need the assistance of someone who can weld to help build something.....

    What is the thoughts of doing something like last year where we don't do major productions of snack sticks or other items, but maybe small little seminar type events? If that is a direction people would like to go, lets put out some areas of interest, so we can build it into the meals for the weekend....

    I like it! I was going to do a demo of using the A-Maze-N smokers for cold smoking and if the weather is cool enough we can do some cheese!

    Learned so much last, can't wait to learn more this fall. John learned so much that he upgraded this smoker. Sold original, made one from a Weber and was gifted another. Now I am not the only cook in the family.

    Just the mention of " dog sitter" and the site goes dormant. We will have our camp dogs Carly & Baily there again this year. They are very handy at cleaning up any left overs. Carly will be good as long as she can find a chair that suits her.

    John raised some ghost peppers and I made jelly. It's hot,hot but has great flavor, tiny bit goes long way. Anyone want some?

    John tried a brisket on his egg knockoff last night and was so impressed that he plans to bring one to gathering. Real learning curve on this smoker, holds heat extremely well and cooks in much less time than all recipes.

    That's awesome Carol! And that will be great to have a brisket at the gathering!

    I have the gathering on my calendar for sure! I can bring sandwich meat again if you'd like, and I'll have my tall mini there to cook whatever fri, sat, maybe even Thursday! It'll be just me and my tent again, so hoping I can find a spot to share with someone.
