What's going on your Egg for the 4th of July?

  We host a block party every year with food and fireworks. This year I am doing pulled pork. I got 5 10# boston butts ready to go, I figured the best thing to do to feed a crowd. What are everyone else's plans?

    Friend is having a big family party to welcome in his new baby son, and i got the job of providing "broasted chicken", probably 72 pieces.  It's a good trade because he is Myron Mixon's prep chef and will be making a few briskets with burnt ends!! ;;)

    Our town is one of the smaller ones in the Chicago suburbs, so we can't get any "good" attractions for a parade on the fourth.  So, we improvise and have it on the 3rd, in the evening!  This will be the second year of me doing pulled pork for friends and family-- probably three butts on the large...

    Monday is our day, Canada Day. Nice rib roast getting ready as we speak. 
    To all our US cousins, have a great 4th of July!

    What the heck is Canada Day anyway?  July 1 is my son's birthday, so he keeps asking me about it.

    Well, when you folks get your act together, you need to post your pics for the 4th Throwndown if you dare.  I have been running all over town getting rubs, etc for the winners.

    Sadly nothing. We will be at another house for te 4th. That being said, the family we are visiting are great cooks. So, not a total loss :).

    Putting a butt on Wed night to bring to my neighbors house on the 4th. Hope to pull it off mid morning on Thurs, FTC then pull the coals out and cool the XL down so I can load it on my trailer for vacation. The egg has to go on first. Heading up to Rockport, Mass on Saturday morning for the week. Hope to be egging a menagerie of crustaceans and shell fish.
