    A 15 lb Brisket will take a long time. I think starting Friday night is a good plan. 
    I am in on a east side gathering.  Two party's sound great.  Let me know if I can help.

    After a year appsense, I am back... Had a crazy year with work and having my third child.. I actually sold food and consulted to food retailers around Michigan and Indiana which was 365 day job... (If you need a place to buy good meat I can prob help you find a place). I now have switched jobs that's lowered my stress and I'm ready to start enjoying my obsession cooking and smoking meat. I will not be able to make the June get together. It's my anniversary... I don't think wife would enjoy it as much as I would.... Look forward to reconnecting with the people and the forums who share this obsession..

    We won't have any smoked meat shortages at the ranch.

    Since you have a brisket, maybe I'll being something else besides corned beef. How are we on appetizers/sides?

    Whatever works best for you dinger. In the morning I'll be smoking my version of scotch eggs for breakfast. Possibly a breakfast fattie as well. As far as sides go the wife will be making coleslaw, and potatoe salad, and I'll be making a bunch of ABTs. Thats the plans as I know them.

    I actually have a few turkey breasts in the freezer as well that I forgot to mention. We used stans smoker on the last party at my place (last fall) and it came out good. So I'm guessing we will smoke at least one of those to.

    Is there any empty smokers available. I was planning on riding but it is hard to fit a smoker on the motorcycle[​IMG]

    I'm sure we will have some room in a smoker Craig. I have a few, and Stan is bringing a few, and cam is bringing his if needed.

    Sounds like there will be more food then we can eat.  All that and Fatties too. I will have to start fasting a few days before the party. I will bring at least two smokers.

    The smoke is Just a few weeks away. Sorry I haven't been on much. Been busy. I probably won't be on much before the smoke either. Busy as can be at work and outside of work. If you can make it great come on by! Bring some meat or a smoker! If you can't sorry about your luck.

    As of now for the 6th I'm smoking the 15 pound brisket, a turkey breast, and a shoulder for dinner. I'll have a shoulder for lunch as well. And a breakfast fatty, and some scotch eggs for breakfast.

    All meat will more or less be done when it's done as it's hard to plan exact times when smoking. Depending on what everyone else is bringing/smoking I'm gonna assume good will be finishing up all day long so people can eat from around 10am through midnight and beyond.

    If anyone has any questions feel free to pm or call Stan or myself.

    Come on Michigan people and join in.  This will be a good time meeting and smoking and eating.  I am still trying to come up with a fattie idea that is better than the famous Spam fattie.

    I hate the spam Fattie. The fact it won is still bothering me.

    We have the guest list more or less figured out from the msg. It'll be fewer than last year but hopefully the overall turnout is good.

    We have enough smokers between the core group and I alone bought enough meat to smoke. Anything else is a bonus. At least 2 of my buddies who haven't been to one of the smokes are entering fatties. So I'm sure we can match the 5 we had last year.

    To bad Robbq won't be defending his Fattie title. Shame to lose it by not entering.
