2016 Gathering #2- The Aftermath!!!

Post by Frank_Cox » October 17th, 2016, 7:32 pm

So here's what happened.....
I have got to say, this gathering thing gets better each time we do one. I can not say it enough how grateful I am for all of you being a part of and making SmokerBuilder what it is and will become!
One thing sticks out to me at everyone of these we do, you always feel like you have known these guys and gals your whole life.
The next one is already being planned and I can not wait! I think we get better at "Planning" everytime hahaha :BS:

So anywho, on with my version of this gatherings story....

10/14/16
Mobile unit #3 is loaded and ready for the highway....
gathering 2016-21.JPEG
Got on the road for the 4 hour drive. Got to the site about 3:00pm and RevMike was already there with Tom and his dad, MrChuck. after getting set up and visiting for a while/ having a couple beers it was time for some supper. Tom surprised us with a whole ribeye! we cut it up and cooked them over the camp fire.....

gathering 2016-28.JPEG
FortyCreek's unit and smokerbuilder unit #2 was still on route.

The saga of fortycreek as told by OB1.....
"there were so many choices for routes to take, some like 40 of'em or somethin, so we decided to try at least 4 of'em"
I'm sure fortycreek will tell it different tho :BS: =)) =)) =))

anyway, he finally showed up around 10 PM and we had a few beers, told a few lies, drank some drinks, and got to bed around 2am.

10/15/16
I finally woke up around 7am. I started makin the ABT supplies and got the fire lit up.

Tom and his crew woke up around 8am or so and RevMike had arrived so we started up the disco....
made some dirty eggs and used some of the left over ribeyes from supper (I know right.... how do you even have leftover ribeyes????)

so here's the rest of the story.......
I just realized I forgot about the Kansas Caviar from MrsRevMike! man that was good!

RevMike and I put on some chili and boy was it good!!! cooked it in his awesome 16 quart cast iron dutch oven....

I know I missed a lot of pics. hopefully everyone else that was there can post theirs also. While we were makin the chili, most of the others started showing up, TheCzar and his crew, Rodcrafter, miketheforester, MP4, BlackSmoke, MikeSpearman, and all of their crews. Much was happening!
The menu went as such, for lunch was chili and corn bread (my first time making corn bread and let me tell ya I have a lot of practicing to do to get anywhere close to as good as PeteMazz is at making it!), Then chickens for supper and beef ribs with some beans, and more!

we had a lot more beers, drinks, coffee, told way more lies, and stayed up way too late around the campfire!

10/16/16
This is the part where I let everyone down on the pics....
hopefully everyone else has some!
breakfast was gizmo tarts and boy were they good!!!
Let me tell ya this is where the MeatMageddon started....
I was busy so I have no pics.....
The menu was Ribs and Chuckies for lunch with boudin, hot dip, sausages, coleslaw, chicken wings, ABTs, more kansas caviar, some epic hamburgers and brats, i heard there were some ridiculously large pork chops, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something!
for supper we had 4 briskets, 2 pork butts, 2 very large Berkshire hog shoulders (that were unreal.... or maybe that was the fortycreek, whiskey, talking....), some of the greatest taters I have ever eaten, and way more stuff I know I'm forgetting lol.

I know RevMike posted more pics on Facebook so I'm gonna get them and post them here shortly.

I know I had the time of my life and this was such a fantastic location I am sure we will have it there again! I cant wait till the next one!

Here's a group pic of us with the Blanket RevMike's Mother made and the awesome plaque!!!!

Here are a few

This park would have been a great place to have a gathering for about a week with boats and all sorts of great cooking. These events have climbed pretty high on my priority list.

I got to have some really great conversations with Mike the Forester and Smoker Tom and Mike Totman and John Henry. Definitely takes things to a new level.

You didn't include the LIFE impacting moment! That was a scary min to 2!

Arkansas needs better road signs! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Me and John Henry had a blast!

Man oh man, how did I forget that! That cheese and the peaches were awesome!
You guys were all messing with me about the best pork I ever had, I'm not blaming the 40 I'm blaming eating that peach!

Looks like a great time! The only way anyone would starve there would be if they were a vegan.

Looks at a piece of meat and wonders how many ways can I smoke that.
