Alternatively, is there a chance you might be doing something later in the may/june time frame that might work better for my trip? Either way, my route takes me right thru St Louis....might need to stop by and finally meet the crew.
I know we are planning to see if we can reserve the location for use in late April. It is looking like Mid-Missouri near HQ but not at HQ. Hopefully TheCzar and Tom will have answers by next week.

I hate to be the guy that posts one right after the other, but it has been over a week with no updates on the time and place it’s going to be.

As senior planning manager.......

Speaking for smokerbuilder. We would like to actually have a plan. Thursday is a done deal.

Friday and Saturday we are open to a main meat course selection. Which smokerbuilder will provide. Guest are welcome to cook any items they wish, access to a superb meat supplier is available, let us know if you need something special.

I need at least 2 quality minded folks that are willing to call them selves pit tenders / monitors. We welcome all to try there hand at running our pits, the near miss grease fire at the last gathering has promoted the need for a pit tender to be nearby keeping a mindful eye on things.

I am working on getting 2 young kids hired for Friday and Saturday to take care or pre meal prep and then to monitor temps and then bag and refrigerate left overs. This is to avoid the disaster of the Sunday bag and tag all the leftovers.

I am looking for a volunteer to be in charge of fire starting and maintenance for our evening fires.

Let me know what is desired for breakfast, such as what day is tart day. Pork sausage and pork belly to be provided by smokerbuilder.

These efforts are a critical need for us to be able to continue the gathering tradition.

Every member of this forum is greatly appreciated and needed to make our world revolve. With that said we can't be running around like a scalded dog [Frank] to name one. We need to spend some time with our members.

My next post is a time line. Please let me know ideas and thoughts

I see Tom has been doing some footwork. Good job! So the 21st is the weekend, cool now where is it I'm guessing since you have a great meat supplier it's going to be in your area right? My wife isn't going this time so I might have to fly so what I bring will be nothing. I will be glad to cook, tend fires, tend smokers, I will plan on getting there around noon Thursday. If you need the recipe for the tarts or corn bread or any of that stuff I will be happy to supply it and pay for the items when I get there. I can buy some ribs when I get there if we can get Mike Spearman to cook them. lol Those pork chops were awesome, maybe we can get Aaron to send some of his rub if he can't come.

Nice time in the works for sure.

See ya where ever it's going to be.
