firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks e
Guys, I wanted to start a new thread for the BBQ Herf. The other is too many pages to sort thru, so I thought I'd try and provide the important info here.
I'm almost surely going to arrive there Friday night. We've got a good amount of people that are coming to this, so I will have some cooking to do. Haven't decided yet, and will get your input, but I will be cooking ribs, along with another type of meat. Possibly a couple beef briskets, or a bunch of chicken. But either way, I will have to have the cooker fired up early saturday morning.
As for the cooking, I was thinking that I will be mainly providing a good dinner for everyone that saturday night. However, the cooker will be going all day, and I can fire it up again on sunday if we need lunch. Its got a separate upper cooking area that is IDEAL for brats and hot dogs, etc. With that being said, if you guys want to take advantage of the cooker during the day, just bring some stuff with. Just don't bring like hamburgers or steaks, the temp will be too low, and it won't cook them worth a crap. Need HIGH temperatures for that. If we want to cook up a bunch of burgers maybe sunday for lunch, that would be fine. I'm not trying to set terms here, I just want to get everyone on the same level, and to know what to expect.
So, as for the dinner saturday night...this is what I tentatively plan on providing.
Baby Back Ribs.
another meat entree, either Boston butt, or Beef Briskets.
BBQ Baked Beans. These are great, I just take a big pan of beans and put them in the upper warmer, they are heated up slow, and collect the smoke flavor all day.
Another side...possibly Sweet corn..
If anyone has a special side dish you'd like to bring along, feel free. We will have a good amount of people here, and you can never have too much food. Just keep in mind if its something that has to be heated up or cooked, to check with me or Hatguy to make sure its feasible.
I'm really looking forward to this.....Can the Hillbilly Steaks BBQ live up to the hype
There was also some talk at one point at possibly bringing some local beers. If you guys are really interested, I could pick up either a full or 1/2 keg of our local brew, Red Oak.
This event will be held at "thehatguys" place in West Virginia on the river. Near Baltimore. It will be the weekend of the 19th and 20th of August. A lot of plans are still in the works. Check back for more details.

Some talk was made about rafting, here is some info stevehawk posted
You can include a cave trip as part of the Saturday's activities.
I had planned on taking Dennis and his son to a small cave that weekend anyway.
The cave is about an hours drive from his house.
That's another good idea!
For those who may not be familiar with these places, I've included some links below:
Blue Ridge Outfitters Rafting - The price is a bit steep but it is a good time. I've done this a couple of times. This is about 10 miles from where Dennis lives,
Charles Town Racetrack and Slots - Post time is 7:15 so this might make a better Friday activity. Slots are open from 7am - 4am. This is about 5 miles from the house.
Harpers Ferry National Historical Park - About 10 miles away. Great place for families or those who like history. This is the site of John Brown's raid and has a lot of Ciil War signifigance. There is a special celebration happening August 18-20: "Niagara Centennial Commemoration – Join the centennial celebration of the Niagara Movement, the cornerstone of the modern civil rights era. Celebration includes a variety of music, drama, and scholarship."
someone has to hang out and drink beer by the cooker with me damnit!!
You can fish in the river while you cook and drink beer, Erick. Another good idea!
