I locked the other thread so we can start planning fresh. Heres a link (http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22636&page=2)for reference if needed.

The Event is at Flloyd Bennet Field.

i cant get together tonight, but a meeting at Wilies tomorrow night is better. I will be talking to Joey shortly and getting the order in.

With Matt out of the running, we have no Grill.

BigBarry, think u can schmooze the rental place for a donation of a Big John? We will be glad to put up their sign. If not, anyone who can, bring a kettle. For cooker space its MOAB(and I may just bring the Bionic Bandera or the BYC) and Militants Squatters Spicewine.

Yak, can u please establish a meeting time and location for us to arrive and get setup. We need to be there around 10 to setup, and begin the pre-work party.

We will need a few tables for serving. I will have 2 extra, 2 more would be helpful.

Tonight I will post a strategy and timeline, but roughly;

Dinner Menu, 5-7PM saturday. Pulled pork sammy, chicken quater and corn on the cob with 3 sides.(potatoe,slaw, mac)

Breakfast 5-7 am sunday. Scrambled Eggs, bacon, sausage, rolls.

Arrive 10-11 Saturday. Setup and start party.
Dinner starts serving at 5. So chicken pit must be hot at 2 to start cooking.
BUTT pulling to begin at 4. WillieB will be precooking the butts on Friday so we just heat and pull and assemble sammys.

I will be cooking some "other stuff" during the day to entice, tease and torture. Dont know what, but who cares. (maybe chili?)..

Lets get a roll call going NOW of who is definately in and i will start with a preliminary plan to hammer out tomorrow night.


ROLL CALL!!!!

I'm in. I will be there before 3pm Sat.

I'll try for a Big John from Taylor. If not, I can bring a kettle.

What's the website for the charity? I want to print it out and take it with me.

Also,can someone pick it up? I don't think it will fit in my Jeep.

I can bring a table or 2 also.

OK guys, I will meet you at the actual cooking area at 10am. I'm the fat guy looking for Q. When you pull into the place you look to the right for the main runway, cross over it and head for the water/air museum. The road seems to narrow at a fence line and then opens up to the actual parking/cooking area. Phil, I will pm my cell phone and have it on. feel free to pass to others coming as needed. I do have a 12x12 canopy with me and a couple of chairs. Maybe even a small prep table. Scott

Phil,

I'm a bit dense, can you clarify something for me? You mentioned 'party' twice. Are you referring to brethren getting together and joking around as food is prepared or is there something more that I'm missing?

Is there a plan for brethren eating? Would it be in poor taste for us (me) to bring burgers or something for our own consumption or are people pitching in towards a more centralized meal?

Thanks!

Eric

I will be able to get there around 12 noon. ( Just realized what a pain in the arse it's gonna be to get to Floyd Bennett Field/Flatbush Ave. since I can't take the the trailer on the Belt Pkwy right to the exit). :evil:

My trailer is still loaded from the Salisbury, MD contest, so I'll have the Spicewine, a 22" kettle grill, two canopies and (3) 6 ft. Costco tables among other stuff.

What are we doing for light after the sun goes down ? I forgot if it was mentioned that electricity was going to be available or not. I have an extension cord and halogen spotlight if there is electric

Eric - While we are "cooking for charity", it's also just a reason for us to hang out, cook, eat, drink and show off our skills to the kayakers...I think cooking other misc. food will be fine...we'll just need to ensure we have enough space and get the kayak meals cooked first. I'm sure we can cook up some burgers, sausage etc. on the grill after the other meat is off.

I do believe Joey was arranging a generator for you folks. I know at least two are coming. Scott

Correction, dinner is at 7, breakfast 5:45.

As long as the kayakers get: A pulled pork Sammi, 1/4 chicken, 1/2 ear of corn and 2 sides....... and eggs/bacon/sausage for breakfast.....We can cook anything we want!!! Im bringing stuff too, just havent decided what. Anyone up for linguine and clam sauce? And i also promised to cook Elias's family the full monty of a bbq comp. Think the bandera will be for recreational cooking.

We will need a couple of coolers too for our own stuff. Im bringing my marine coolers, but one will be loaded with butts.

Electricity will be supplied via generator. The trailer has a full fridge in it that will be needed for the chicken, bacon, sausage, etc.. and beer/cabo.

Water: They will have a hose hookup but we need to get it to the site. I have 150 foot hose, we may need one more long one if someone has.

By party.... I mean.. we are all together... its a parking lot bash.

I am targeting 10-11 arrival and will be picking up the meats from Willie on the way in.

20 Butts wil be cooked to 180, we need to finish on site, then pull and prep.

chicken is all done onsite, so be prepared to rub and prep 250 pieces of chicken.

500 buns, 20 lbs of slaw/potato salad, and 140 ears of corn.

Big barry, can u bring your turkey fryer and big pot? and anyone else have one? I'm bringing mine too, but we need to boil water for the corn.

timeline.

dinner starts at 7.

We should have all the butts pulled by 6, which means they need to be done by 4 to give time to rest and start pulling at 5. Vinnie, will the spicebox hold 20 butts?

I am hoping to have at least 6 people pulling and building sammis, while 3 of us man the pits to have the chicken done at the right time.

Salads will be put in chafing dishes for self serve. We hand them a plate with sammi, chx and corn.

Breakfast starts at 5:45. Bacon we can precook Saturday night and heat in a chafing dish in the morning. Sausage we can do in the spicebox.

i will have a 3 burner stove, but cooking 400 eggs is going to be a challenge. I am hoping we get the big john, and we can just cook them in chafing dishes on the grill.

BigBarry, if they wont donate, i think we may just rent, inquire on price please.

WillieB, Can we borrow your 80 qt pot?

So, the weapons so far are.

Me, MOAB, Bandera, Hondo if needed. Kettle(2 if needed). 3 burner stove. Turkey fryer. 2 tables. Hoses.

Vinnie. Spicebox and Kettle, canopies and 3 tables.

Queenie; Kettle.


More to come.. i think i hurt my brain with all this. :redface:

I will have the Spicebox, kettle, canopies and tables. I will also have an 100 'extension cord, lights, a hose splitter and hose.

At a bare minimum I can fit 16 butts (4 shelves x 4 butts each)
I might be able to fit 5-6 butts depending on how big the butts are, which would take us to 20-24 butts. I have a fifth shelf which could fit another 4-6 butts but the height clearance on the top rack is a bit lower.

Poobah, I will be there to help. Please keep me in mind. I'll do some yakking and some helping. I can bring another big marine sized cooler if needed. Want it? I really don't have anything sitting around meat wise, sorry. Next weekend is a big cook for me. Also Jon will have 125 feet of hose there, so that should be covered. Anything else I can help with, just let me know. Scott

BigBarry
05-02-2007, 09:05 AM
Will bring stove, pot, table and will check Taylor today. If no freebie, maybe discount. If you are getting it anyway, should we bring kettles?

What about putting the eggs in alum pans and making brownie-like eggs (simple quiche) and then just cutting? You can cook in the smoker at 300. Cheese would bind it nicely

Smoked Eggs? Been there. Sold the tee shirt.

seriously, that take to long. I'd rather put all the eggs into 5-6 foil pans and lay them across hot grills and get them all done quick.

Kinda meant that - high heat on smoker but I guess the smoke flavor would be bad. Got it.

Pan cooking on grill would save labor, though. Make sure you use oil in pans.

Have no fear....Phil's an expert at cooking eggs on a kettle. We cooked a ton of eggs at the Kingsford event as part of the pork tenderloin breakfast burritos... and I may be wrong, but no oil was used in the pans.... Phil's really skilled at using a spatula to scramble without burning...:biggrin:

Pretty sure the prior posts re the sked etc. sums it all up for what is happening.

Thanks to the guys who helped BigBarry out last night. One of the fisherman was a Federal Officer and was able to get help right away.

He got home safely just after 9:00 AM this morning with his arm in a sling. He slept for about six hours and is now watching TV and eating a bit. His knees are scraped up and his shoulder, upper arm hurt, but he should be okay.

Westexbbq
05-06-2007, 03:08 PM
I suppose some explanation and background feedback would be in order.
Late last evening Barry suffered a disclocated shoulder accidentally and spent the rest of the evening at a local hospital, Coney Island I believe, where they "popped it back in" and fitted him with a sling.
Being the brethren trooper that he is, as several of us were prepping the fixings for breakfast his morning, shortly after the sun came up, who appears strolling across the tarmac but Big Barry himself, ready to pitch in and help us all finish!
Last I heard, 16 hrs in the sling and Barry should be back on the mound in no time.
Wait til' yall hear about how the rest of the weekend went!
(It's all good.)

MilitantSquatter
05-06-2007, 09:12 PM
Wow...I'm tired. After loading up my trailer and then helping Scott and Phil get Phil's trailer in order, I was home around 1PM.

24 hours were a blur of motion.

Slept all afternoon... Good time, lots of work but we all worked together and got through it surprisingly well conisdering the sheer volume of food being cooked.. (on the way home it reminded me of how much we cooked at the Kingsford event).

It was a real scene when Westex sets up a table, with his cowboy hat and BBQ apron while all the kayakers were standing nearby waiting for food. You would have thought Westex was like some BBQ god ready to put on a demo for the public !!!!

Really sorry about Big Barry Poppins... but seeing him walk through the trees in the early AM with a sling on his arm and gauze bandages on both legs, smiling and waving was classic.. Mr. Poppins was back in action cooking up breakfast after being in the hospital all evening...

I had no clue anything happened. at 1AM I was sleeping in my truck. I saw a bunch of flashing lights, but I assumed with all the wind coming off the water that there was a storm and there was lightning flashes in the sky.

Julie and Tim show up in the AM around 5 AM or so, and next thing you know, we are in Phi's trailer cracking and scrambling several hundred eggs.

It was great to meet Scott(yakfishingfool). Real solid guy, who worked his arse off as well cooking, cleaning and ensuring we all hit the timelines while sacrficing his day on Sat. to actually fish out of his kayak.

I think he got a good taste of the LI Brethren although we were so busy, we really did not get to hang out much and really let loose.

BigBarry
05-07-2007, 07:27 AM
Well, I have to thank all the Brethren and the 'yakers for all the help.

Background - After most everyone went to bed on Sat. night, we got some nasty wind with gusts over 35mph around midnight. I played camground monitor and got some folks up to break everything down so it wouldn't blow away.

I crashed when I tried to get up off the cooler after dozing off...Mind you, I was drinking but wasn't hammered - just exhausted. Went to get up and lost my balance and crashed hard into the concrete.

Thanks to the two young federal agents who were late arrivals to the tourney that saw the accident and got help lightning fast.

DO NOT EVER got to Coney Island Hospital. Ever. Under any circumstances. Sew your own arm back on if you have to.

Feel sorry for the 'yakers...small craft warning pretty much killed the tourney for them. Hey, at least they ate good.

I gotta say that I have never seen a group of people work so hard and so well together. We really were smokin'!! Organizing, delegating, leading. We really clicked.

I also had a GREAT time (boo-boo aside) and I would do it again in a heartbeat. People were drooling, then raving over the chow. They were pressing up against the tables to watch us work.

Good charity, good people, good times.

So what went wrong at the hospital?

Other than the last 30 min - pain relief from Orthopedist resetting arm - everything. Screaming maniacs,felons, staff that couldn't give a shart, filthy conditions, complete lack of care or concern, freezing cold with no blankets.

I left before they were able to take final x-rays to "make sure it was back in place" Duh. I was able to move it freely.

I walked out and had to hail a gypsie cab on the street to take me back. I could just imagine his thoughts about taking a large, bandaged, smelly (smoky) man to an abandoned airfield at 5:30 in the morning.

BBQchef33
05-07-2007, 10:44 AM
I am shot to chit.. got home around 4 and slept till 9. Stopped at WilieBs to drop off some leftover stuff and the 6 foot grill.

We were cooking for a planned 225, but it turned out to to be 150-175 for dinner and breakfast even less. The windy weather kept the kyakers on dry land.

Scott and I worked the pits most of the time, while the rest did the food handling, serving and crowd control(showtime!!). Vinnney did the butts in the spicewine, so actually he did'nt do anything but pull up a chair and watch that pit coast. :wink: That medimum spicewine swallowed up 25 pork butts. Impressive!

What was awesome is how everyone took control of something that needed to be done and did it. Westex was a pork puller, Skip(Mr Wannabebbqueen) was in the kitchen makin/inventin the pork for sammis, BigBarry Birdserver later to be know as Humpty Drum-pty, Vinney the Sammi-man got the pork from Skip to build the samis, Westex the cornhauler, Queenie was Salad Servin and MotoEric was burpin up sodas.

yakfisher and I tended MOAB turning out a few hindred pieces of chicken as they came off and got consumed. We were short a pit and hoped Moab would handle it but just in case i brought the Boyscouts Bionic Bandera which later on, turned out to save the day. Those banderas are great little pits, and i am so glad they were the cornerstone of the Bandera Brethren... (to bad my original was misplaced in the wrong home :cry:....)

heres a few highlights.

first high point.

I forgot the firewood. Nice move a-hole. http://planetsmilies.net/shocked-smiley-9449.gifI bring two stick burners and no sticks. http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/sprachlos/speechless-smiley-008.gif i was supposed to pick it up at willies, but had so much loading of the foods, that we forgot to load the wood. Barry went on a home depot run.. NO WOOD and any of the,... yak stole some oak from someones campfire pile. :twisted: Moab needs a chit load of wood to get hot, but once its going, a log or 2 an hour or some lump is all ya need.. its that first burst that charcoalalone can not do. It HAS to have flames going into the chamber to get all the steel hot.

Next,..... Never figure # pieces of chicken in a 40 lb box based on weight. Willie and I, when estimating how much to buy grabbed a few thighs from a box at the restauratnt and weighed a few.. average -8-9 oz. ok. 40lb*16oz=640oz/9each=71 pieces average per box. We needed 210 so we got 3 boxes AND a case of wings which averaged about 120 per box. thats over 300 pieces.. cool, covered.

Well, we got bird thighs from chernoybl. http://www.clicksmilies.com/s1106/sprachlos/speechless-smiley-004.gif They looked like they were from farkin turkeys. 16oz and up. Some I could swear came off of some teradactyl somwhere. Normally that would be a good thing, but what it did was cut our piece count in half. Once loaded, we only had about 100 pieces :eek: but expecting 200+. Yakfisher and I took some psycho couch time to rework the plan. The deal to the customer was 1/4 chicken(leg and thigh), but we had to rework it to one of these huge thighs or a leg/wing combo. Originally, the wings were just for those who were dead set on whtemeat. But we had less people than we thought, so we made it with extra anyway.

a real eyecatcher was Bigbarry Poppins walkin back across the runway to the tune of "Johnny comes marchin home." A single troop, arm in a sling, knees bandaged up and bloody. Im watchin sayin, chit.. hes returning to his platoon. :eusa_clap :eusa_clap all he nneded was a head bandage and to be carrying a Brethren flag. :mrgreen:

Never trust Motoeric or Bigbarry to clean your jalepenos. I had an ABT that gave me some hiccups that sucked my workboots up thru my legs and stuck in my throat. Of course, yakfisher found that funny.

Difference between this and a competition is:

GREASE. :eek:

competition: @ butts, 2 briskets, 20 chicken, 6 racks ribs. Grease stays in the pit til ya get home.

Here: 200 chicken, 30 lbs bacon, 30 sausage.. GALLONS of grease, gotta be dumped a few times. A few times it wound up on the damn floor.

it was a ton of work and planning the week leading up, and i was concerned that it was being well recieved by the fishers.. our timing was off a little bit becase the chicken was so big it was taking loneger to cook. Notto mention that we could not fit as mush as we needed to on a rack. there are some tricks with MOAB that can push the cooks and give different results that we used and we were within and hour of target times. The big life saver was the little Bandera.. the spicebox was busy withthe butts, so with 6 shelves in it, the bandera was able to offload 20-30 big thighs from moab allowing us to clear shelves to start the wings. Then, removing the watertray in Moab gives the 2 bottom shelves a more direct heat right out of the firebox that can cook wings real fast and crispy them up.. its not direct grilling, but definately hight heat roasting. Without the bandera, we were screwed.

I missed all the smiles up front being i was working in the pit area and didnt get to schmooze any with the crowds. glad to know people were happy..

AS usual, meeting a brethren for the first time.. I was greted by Yakfishingfool and there was a total lack of first time wierdness, silence, shyness, etc.. Everytime i met one of us, the thing that catches me the most is the feeling you known they guy for years.. Especially when the first thing that happens is ball busting, wise cracking and reference to past liefe expreriences that only someone you know.or knows you can either reference, or understand.... Yak, it was a pleasure!!

although the trailer is not completed yet, it made life so much easier.. prep area, fridge, running hot water, it would have been a real b*tch doing this with just water buckets and ice chests. its nice to fire up a coffee maker, or sit down on a couch to take a break. Best thing is flolding out a bed and getting some real sleep for a few hours. Even if barry decides to interupt it with ambulances and earthquakes. He took his flop 20 feet away and we never heard a thing except a little talkign which i thought was just some guys sitting around having a few beers and enjoying the gale force winds coming off the bay.

Hands down, i had a great time.. it was a ton of work, and pretty much non stop except for a 4 hours sleep.. but thats was the fun... cooking and feeding people for a full day.. Now that we know what to expect, I'd do it again next year in a heartbeat.. and this time i'll bring a grease bucket. : )

All in all a splendid time was had by all and we all worked hard to help make it all come together.
As one who helped prep and serve both dinner and breakfast, the smiles and appreciations we all got on the front lines were very warm and sincere.
I tried to schmoooze with as many folks as possible and Yak and many others of his organization were grateful to all of us.
Several of the Kayyak campers who were set up near us really got an education I am sure. They are a great group of folks.
All I know about 'next year' is that when I was driving out, I spotted the 2 guys from Virginia that were there (and hooked us up with their generator at first),
and as I was saying goodbye, they both said in unison, "We sure hope to see you all back here next year."
I'm in.
(and I will bring some extra cherry, just in case.)

A few things:

1) I think Phil got the magic abt. I had about 6 and had no problems.

2) Always call ahead if they have cell phones on site. I figured I would get there around 2 and most of the work would be done. No such luck. Poor timing on my part. : )
Still plenty of shucking, chopping, abt stuffing and chicken seasoning to be done.

3) In spite of the less than expected attendance, I believe that the event was a financial success for a very worthy cause.

4) A bag containing a lge tupperware container with assorted penzeys spices went missing. Did anyone find it after I left or in the morning? Please let me know. Maybe Phil hid it thinking it had more jalepenos in it.

I had a great time and would certainly be happy to help out again next year. It was great to hang out with all the brethren for such a great cause.

HI Guys, Finally rested enough to make a post.

First, a major thank you. You guys came through with Flying colors. I know it was all volunteerm but the passion in what you did was obvious not for the cause so much as for the passion of cooking. It shows in everything you do.

So many thoughts, may take me a day or two to get them out there. I guess the easiest thing is to reflect on what poobah said, he hit the nail on the head. Never felt like a newbie and for some reason he's asking me to strategize on what to do. Internally I felt totally honored that Phil was sking me, a relative newbie for opinion. Several trips to the "couch" and he and I had figured it all out, at least two or three times ;) Like phil said I felt a part of the group without having ever met a soul. Wes, Eric, Barry, Julie, The folks there on Saturday afternoon making hamburgers (Mr and Mrs Wannabeequeen, I believe) Your help and participation was invaluable. Vinny, your spicewine is a pice of art and work and did a great job. If I could have a second pit, that would be it. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

It all went down pretty much as Phil described, yup, smokers and no wood. Just a bunch of kayak fisherman and lo and behold one of them had wood with them. Stole it but we got wood...Was a bit concerned when Barry went "looking for wood", but he proved himself many times over. Also procured the generator and the gas to keep it running. It truly was a community effort...reminescent of a stone soup meal.

Some highlights for me...of course meeting brethren, seeing the size of the chicken and realizing we were under count. Solving the problem was fun. Phil not wearing underwear, a buit disturbing...yet...pleasing at the same time. The ABT that made Phil about wet his unprotected pants. He's running around with flames comming out of his mouth and start drinking quarts of water from a 1 quart chinese soup container. Also the ice cold lime vodka he served me as we had "couch therapy". James the pyro looking for anything that would burn:) Good kid you got there phil.

The 1:30am hospital call to care for Barry. What a guy, loud and personable, ready to give you the shirt off his back. Sat and kept him comfortable despit ehe repeated requests to just "pop" it back in for him. To see him walking down the runway, bandaged and slinged...what a guy, righ tto the line to serve eggs. Man, if he has twice as much heart as anyone then everyone here is going to be great to meet.

More to recall I'm sure, but what a great time, can't wait til the summer bash, only wild horses could keep me away. Learned alot this weekend, grease management, pit skills, Poobah knows his pits and how to work them for sure. so much more... Scott

PS, the last weekend in october...sworn to secrecy...would have to kill you if I told you... :)

heres some more pics.. including some pics of:

The chernobyl thighs.. Thats a bandera rack they are on to give u perspective.

i dont know what vinney is doing bent over like that.

and theres a sneak peek at the trailer interior.. its not done, and some of the stuff is temporary, but it sure did come in handy.



(had more pics but the camera washed them out.. think we had a setting off.)

Wish we had more of the feeding sequence as well as the full post cook of the trailer...ugh, messy, messy...especially when the rub bomb went off. Scott

Looks like you guys had a good time regardless of the weather. Phil, the trailer looks great, and Vinny, I love the new smoker!

The hat and apron make you look thinner & taller, it is very flattering.
