    Smokin' Todd,
    Great pics. Looks like you had a great time! Cute kid! How many people were there? How many hours did it last? Thanks.

    Great shots! Looks like a good time. -RP

  • Smokin' Todd,
    Great photos! Looks like it was a lot of fun. Asparagus in sesame oil sounds soooo good. You have your name embroidered on a towel? LOL I want one of those![p]Looks like it all went really well.[p]I notice people have tablecloths on all the tables. Did everyone bring those or were they provided? [p]Gwen

  • Big'un,
    Thanx:) He's 3 1/2 years now and we had a tough time keeping an eye on him as he wondered alot.
    Maybe about 60 people in all. Went from 9am to around 5pm.

  • Dimple's Mom,
    Actually that is a fabric BBQ tool holder that the Lawn Ranger made. I requested that he make me a BBQ tool carrier and that came with a wooden carrier box. Holds 6 tools...can hold grid lifters, knives, ect...Comes in handy for travel.
    Eggheads brought their own table cloths.
    Was a very good time! Before you know it you'll be hosting your eggfest real soon!

    Weather was great for Sept. A bit humid but we had the benefit of shade to block the direct sun.

    Smokin' Todd,
    Looks like a good one. I need to get over that way sometime. I've got an aunt in the York area. Its been 2 decades since I've been to Gettysburg. Need to take the little man over to walk those hallowed grounds. He'll like the devils den if nothing else because of all the rocks to climb.

  • AZRP,
    Just so that you know that I was there 10 minutes before 9am.
    Heeeeeeeeeeeeee! LOL!

  • AZRPAZRP Posts: 10,116
    Smokin' Todd,
    How did your ribs turn out? -RP

  • dhuffjr,
    I havent been to Gettysburg yet. Maybe one if these weeks I will actualy take a week off from work and not do house chores but see the sites.
    This one was real special for me since it was Jr's 1st. I tried to get him to help sauce ribs like your little one did in Omaha, but once I handed him the brush he just ran to the other kids to play. I think he even met a girlfriend today!LOL!

  • dhuffjrdhuffjr Posts: 3,182
    Smokin' Todd,
    Chubby must be giving yours lessons too! [p]LOL[p]H

  • AZRP,
    Compliments suggested they were good although I didnt get any myself. I really should have made more then 2 racks.
    Did the 3-1-1 honey/brown sugar foil method with Raging River. Some were surprised they tasted good using Raging River with spares. That stuff is more versatile then some may think. In my opinion that stuff tastes better on pork and chicken then it does on fish.

    Morning Smokin' Todd:[p]Sausage/Cheese roll looking good. What type of sausage, looks like some large chunks? See you in a few weeks![p]Have a GREAT day!

    Have a GREAT day!

  • Smokin' Todd,
    Wow Jr. knows how to relax with the best of them. What a great time. Looks like people's homes in the background. Is the fest in a public park or something?
    Nothing like the Waldorf Fest I know too well.[p]Love your Table Cloth!

    Smokin' Todd,
    Thanks for posting the pics Todd. Looks like it was a great day for the fest.

  • Smokin' Todd,
    If you ever decide to go to Gettysburg, maybe you can give us a call. My wife led tours there for a few years, and I'm addicted to that Civil War rush. Would be a great time for our families.[p]Staying overnight in a tent is huge fun for the kids, since the place is haunted....

  • Smokin Todd and company did a fantastic job today. Weather was perfect light breeze and shade trees. And with the event held right in front of Woodburners it worked out well.

    I can vouch for the Sausage/Cheese Rolls... it was good.

    A good time had by all.

    Smokin' Todd,
    I hear ya on didn't get a taste, in Denver we didn't get a taste of anything we cooked. I did some spicy shrimp in two batches, the second batch had people lined up taking them straight from the grill. -RP

  • AZRP,
    And they were VERY good, too. Nice shrimp. Good job.

  • Smokin' Todd,
    Nice photo of the sausage bread--we saw it being rolled out but left to trek back to Delaware before it was finished. Nice job, all. Some outstanding cooks.

  • AZRPAZRP Posts: 10,116
    So, you were there, eating my shrimp, and I didn't get to meet you and put a name with a face. Sorry I can't remember you, wish I could. That's why we are doing all these fests this year, to meet as many people as we can. -RP

  • Smokin' Todd, Hey Dude...saw your most "Eggcellent" pics of the PA EggFest...wish I cud have made it... Hope you can break free to make it back to Austin this year for TxFest...You ought to see Lake is literally UP to the cooking area...can't park cars below the area anymore. Stay in touch...Howell

  • AZRP,
    We chatted! But I keep a low profile. You have the beard and the very pleasant wife, right? And the XL and won the small? Was that you? I was with a VERY tall blond guy (not the equally tall dark haired guy.) [p]Maybe at fests we need to put our "handle" on the tag. I didn't think of that.

  • SSN686,
    I smoked sweet italian sausage in a small then sliced and added cheddar cheese. Pretty good except I used pilsbury dough from a can. Hard to roll and couldnt spread like I wanted it.[p]ST

  • hayhonker,
    It was held on the front lawn of the Woodburners store. The "table cloth" is actually a fabric tool holder that came with a wooden carrier box that the Lawn Ranger made.
    Gettysburg sounds like alot of fun!

  • SkyRider,
    I can always find time to hang with Texans, especially those who have all the awesome Texas brew available!

  • Smokin' Todd,[p]Nice pics, Todd. We got too busy to take any pics. Glad you had a good time, as was had by all. Great day, great food, great chefs, great music, and great friends to share it with. Thanks to all who came and participated. Hope to see you next year.[p]Karl & Linda Claus
  • AZRPAZRP Posts: 10,116
    I had my handle on my tag, pleasant wife, but no beard. -RP

  • Thanks for the great pic's and being a great neighbor on Saturday. We had a great time.
