    Looking oh so good Frank! Your guests look mighty happy.
  • Normally smoke at 240 grate which is around 255 dome on the old style XL. Wanted to make sure I could pull it off and go into the cooler (some say the butt hole) at 3:00 so I started at 275 at 4:00 am and throttled back to 240 just after lunch. Went into the cooler around 3:30.

    Sorry Frank but given a choice between your butt or them bugs I'll take the bugs! :laugh: Till Katrena we had several places that you could snag all you eat for $20 or so. Since then two fifty a lb or so. Gal in center of pic sitting daughter? Looks kind of like your wife. Both pretty.....not like you! :laugh: You coming to Oklahoma??! Still haven't heard. :woohoo:

    Now that's one heck of a feast! Jealous of those 'sacks' from those of us in PA.

    Thanks for sharing!
  • Not going to make it this year. The Thursday following the fest we will be heading to Hawaii with the Chickens and some of the Chicken relatives. :)

    Of course we are only going because Spring Hen is going. :laugh:
  • Jason,

    I haven't used them but my niece had 200# shipped to California from these guys.

    She was completely satisfied. I checked out the website and they say they have their own ponds and ship their own crawfish, with a guarantee of live crawfish, instead going through brokers.

    Not cheap but a once a year treat ......
  • JLOCKHART29JLOCKHART29 Posts: 5,897
    Doreen and I are bumbed!! :( Was really hopping you would make it. Now I guess the Chickens are a no show as well.
  • deepsouthdeepsouth Posts: 1,796

    your meal looks awesome. i'm jealous.
