Brisket Camp V, Oct 20th in New Orleans

It will probably be boring.  Nothing exciting happens at any of these, yet we churn on and do it every year like lemmings.  On the up side, the food is decent.  Not too many leave hungry.  Not that that's not happened, some vegetarians came one year.  On Thursday we take a boat ride.  People sip beverages and talk politely among themselves.  It is the essence of civility.

We might have wings this year, it's still being decided.  Probably a flat or two.  Someone said they would make a small batch of slaw.

In general, nothing that special happens.  No original cooking occurs.  It's pretty much vanilla.  The scenery is regular.  The location is just a spot on the Mississippi river by a city.  There are some transportation options.  Pretty much no characters are there.  Music will be played softly from an old AM radio.

That is all.  Hope to see calm people there. 

There is no history of coverage on this forum, we pretty much do the fest, then keep it all inside, not posting on this forum.  Pictures taking is allowed, yet no one takes them because they are too sedate.

Volume levels never exceed a soft conversation or the engine noise of an electric car.  If you are sensitive to stimuli, you will be at home.

Further details will follow.

Quietly.

  • Will miss, again and sadly, keeping my record intact. Watching from afar, assuming there are pictures posted and stories to tell. Although I’ve heard that what *really* happens at Brisket Camp stays at Brisket Camp. Or something.

    My son plans to be there.  He'll probably bring some of his fellow Tulane students.  I'll make sure he brings only the quiet ones.

    I will sadly be sitting this one out. I have to be in Houston 10/20, otherwise I am sure I will not hear the end of it for as long as I live. 

    BUT, I don’t HAVE to be in Houston 10/18 and 10/19...

    @Eggcelsior, shouldn’t bring “me” any beer this year. My son’s 21. He can trade his own dam beer with whoever he pleases. And drink it as he sees fit. 

    You bunch of beer stealing bastages.

    There has been in the past, but just the most meager of fires, like what you would build if you were on the run from the law, but needed a quick French press before running again.

    Yep. And sporting a great beard. Haven’t shaved in two weeks.

    I’m going to have to miss it as well due to work travel.  Believe me, I’m not happy about it.

    Is anyone invited?  I may have some frequent flyer miles to burn, what would I need to bring?  Is there a super secret decoder ring needed for details? (I do have one, cracker jacks makes great stuff)
