Yep - it's time for a FOOD THREAD (and beverages)! Those of you familiar with East Coast GTGs understand that it's all about the POT LUCK. :D

Tim has a grill and we'll plan on firing up the smoker on Friday night to do some brisket or pork or something of that nature. Everything else is fair game!

What we're looking for? Here's a link to last year's food thread... http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=317860

Go ahead and jump in - start signing up for whatever your hungry tummy desires. I'll update this post with the official list several times between now and Friday. :D

I still have the turkey fryer that hasn't been used, we need to break that in this year. Also going to need chairs, coolers and tables. There is a package store and mini-mart in town for anyone that wants to wait to get here for ice/beer/napkins etc.

I will bring buffalo dip, as I have now been instructed that certain people will be very angry if I do not :)

I'll grab a bottle of 99 Bananas, and snacks, including some stuff to dip in the buffalo dip.

Suggestions for things to deep fry? Do we need to get oil for it?

Oh, and I can bring one cooler.

What to bring

Oh man, I hate these food threads because I never know what to bring.

Why don't you bring some of those funny looking red hot dogs you all eat up there ? :D If you don't like hot dogs a couple of hundred live Maine lobsters would be good !!
I will bring some "Blackies" relish for those dogs. I will also bring a couple of cut watermelons. I also have a 6ft table that fits in my trunk. Maybe a few other things also.
Best

So also put me down for Chicken Wings..

There's a big turkey fryer. That should work as long as you have a basket/scoop for getting the food out.

Failed at my mission of getting 99 Bananas (at least so far), but I got some 42 proof banana rum.

Also grabbed a Great Lakes Brewing Company sampler pack - the same stuff I brought last year.

Such are the benefits of having a liquor store across the street. :D

I need like a week advance notice to get that stuff where I get it from (because I have to order a case from them), and it wasn't popular at Impex for some reason, so I didn't order a case. :(

Julie - I have one bottle leftover from Impex that I'll throw in the car!

Sorry I didn't update the first post with all of the new information - been super busy trying to get things ready, running late, etc. Typical Slo-Mo VeeDub. :rolleyes:

OK, picked up some red hot dogs as well, but at $5 a pound for lobster, it's a little pricey right now. Then again, the red hot dogs were $5.49 a pound.... :D

I'll bring a big BLT Salad. The healthy salad will perfectly counter the heart attack effects of the bacon. :)
