Just 6 weeks until the big gathering. Janet and I are really looking forward to this adventure. No Matter if you are a ‘Day-Tripper’ or if you make a ‘Weekend’ pilgrimage, I can promise you a great time. Hopefully we will be able to get Mr Bosley to walk us thru (in small groups) the Smoker area. While Mr Hays has a large smoker down in Tennessee, It is just the right size to support his business. Bosley’s Moonlite Smokers are more in the order of a Giant Sized operation. However as large as they are they are really something to see in operation.
I will encourage everyone to at least sample the ‘Pulled Mutton’ and the ‘Chopped Mutton’. I must admit I really do prefer the Pork, but a trial chunk or two is worth the trip !.
If you haven’t tried the Chocolate Pecan Pie you will have to save some room for dessert. Think of a good Pecan pie with about a 1/4" layer of fudge frosting spread over the top. and you cut your own slices !! I like their Coconut Cream and Strawberry-Rhubarb also. I can pass on the Lemon Ice-Box and Chess pies, but they are hits with others in my family, so if that is your forte, be my guest, please. Also a scoop of Blackberry Cobbler with some soft-serve on it makes a nice treat.
I hope everyone is searching their pantry or garage or whereever for "Just the Right DoorPrize" !! We really had a good time at the Crabfest passing out the treasures and enjoying some of the swap sessions after that!
More news soon.
