I'm bringing at least 20 lbs of Alaskan Salmon (maybe more) for a lunch or dinner, I was just offered about 50 lbs of Buffalo (don't know what everyone would think about that), and planned on a Country Skillet Breakfast one of the mornings.

I'll be glad to fix a Boston Butt for Saturday afternoon. We could have the pulled pork to go with the other food, or make some sandwiches. Would someone want to go in with me to purchase the meat or the buns. I'll cook the roast on site Sat. Post reply on Forum or send a PM

We'll bring some Canadian maple syrup and Tim Horton's coffee for Sunday Breakfast.

Gayle hasn't had a decent cup of coffee since the last Gathering :P

Barbeque...
that sounds great. Bring it on!

(We Canadians don't really "get" Bar-B-Q... to us, it means "a hot dog on a hibachi"...)

That almost sounds like a challenge! Who ever heard of serving hush puppies with bbq anyway? Pulled pork, homemade sauce, and white bread. Now THAT is BBQ. :wink:

Hush puppies deep fat vat fried, you darn tootin...... Eating white bread with pork of any stripe is likened to drinking beer after taking the alcohol out of it. It makes less than no sense. In Florida you have a place that truely insults the name BBQ and thats Sonny's, a chain all across the state or use to be anywhere. The first time I went in that place, I ask for a refund.
If I was not going to be on the road, I would show you the real thing. The only thing that I do now that differs from the old days is now I use a grill instead of a pit on the ground.

Okay, I'll bring Buffalo too. We're looking at an early October slaughter (or "Harvest" for those that only know grocery store meat). I know timing is wierd for this "taking" but my friend only does range feed beef and buffalo so, as the saying goes, it's not ready 'til it's ready. Don't worry...I won't post pictures of the process.

We went in on a half cow about five years ago and had to wait three years (got the meat about 2 years ago) 'cause it takes a lot longer for range fed to beef up (no pun intended). Best beef we've ever had - anywhere - anytime - anyplace - in the whole world.

How about a Buffalo pit roast (probably without the pit)? A typical roast is really really big so I may ask the packager to size one down so as to only feed 30 people or so? Is this about right?

[Dud alert] I am a member of PETA. I support the eating of tasty animals. BUt anyway, members of my family do free range pigs and boy can you really tell the difference too. We do butts, slow cooking them overnight in our special sauce in the oven and actually make it up BBQ in advance and freeze it in some cases for convenience.
