Title: Pigroast 2008 Info thread and RSVP
Post by: Jeff on June 21, 2008, 10:02:01 AM
Its only a handful more days! 

As always, you don't have to RSVP to come, but if you think you are, or sure you are, or think you might, its a great help to let us know here as we start getting ready. 

We have called on the pig, we'll call on that again in a couple weeks to confirm. Monday we'll call and order the large plastic box with the flip down seat to be strategically located in da trees.

We have limited space for camping right here which is first come first serve. I need to hear from a couple people yet to know if we have room yet for any more R.V.'s. There is room for several tent campers.

I got home today to find a note on the desk saying that we have reservations at Harrison's finest motel for August 1 and 2. Since we will already be in town, we might as well attend the pig roast. ;D

Hi Jeff,

Its been a long tome since i was here.  It is good to be back!  I don't know if you saw my post in the travel section.  If you did me and the wife may be going to northern Pennsylvania before we go to Virginia.  If we do, that will put us on I-80 in Indiana on the 1st or 2nd.  How far off of I-80 are you.  If it is not too far we may swing up for some Pig on our way from Alaska.

Well, I was really hoping and planning on making it this year.  BUUUUUTTTTT, I got told today that I will be going to Phoenix, AZ for GovEnergy 2008.  I have got to be there by Sunday afternoon to set up the center’s booth before the show starts on Monday morning.  It would be real hard for to get the wife and myself back to Virginia from Michigan, practically after eating all that good food, and for me to catch a red-eye on Sunday morning.

Anyone in Phoenix up for a visit from a broken down old sailor?????

Are you going to use your Bio Mizer to heat your pool this year?

Still trying to convince the wife that we can do all the driving.  We will be driving on Friday too and she thinks it's too much for the kids.  We have to cut another trip short to make it.  I'll work on her this week.

TR,

I've been here and there.  With the change in my school life, it's gotten harder to integrate forestry into my lessons, so I drop by less because of that. And then, there's the fact that I mostly live indoors.

BUT...I bought myself a teardrop trailer this spring, so I plan to do some camping! In fact, I took my first trip this past week with  my boyfriend. The next trip, I may take solo...

He proclaims himself to be an "ol' country boy" - he grew up on a farm. Yet, he forgot how much mosquitoes bother him - and smoke from campfires - and he's painfully afraid of "irregularity". What a whiner! And, he can't start a fire! He kept telling me how to do it and to "let him". Good grief! I have started my share of campfires in my 23 year career as a Girl Scout.

Mr. Fussypants...that's my new name for him.

Looks like no-one from Baker will be there this year either. I was hoping to get to come but my wife is pregnant and due in August. She isn't actually till the middle but you all know as well as I do that it could be any time in that last 1 month span. Tom_in_Mo has to many things goin on at his farm to be able to break away. So someone be sure to drink a cold one for me and eat me a plate of the good food!!! I will shoot to be there next year though!!

Dee and Zach are going to stay home and rest for the Kid Rock concert that night.  Zach would never make the concert awake if he came and played in the pool all day  ;) ;D  He agrees  ;D  I'll be there but will be on my way around 4PM to make the show  :) :)

Jeff,

What time is the pig on the table?  I might be able to bring some cucumber salsa again, but I might need to borrow a cutting board ;D  Time will be real tight between trips and the salsa tastes better fresh.

If I remember Corley5 likes the hot stuff.  I've got some home grown habanerro, Ancho and hot bananna peppers to throw in too.

Like last year we will have to leave about 6:00 to catch the fireworks.

Might want to call the cardiologist..

Post by: ADAMINMO on July 29, 2008, 04:41:49 PM
Do ya just toss the cookie in the grease or do you use some kind of batter? Sounds like a treat though.
Title: Re: Pigroast 2008 Info thread and RSVP
Post by: Kevin_H. on July 29, 2008, 04:58:06 PM
You roll it in something like pancake or funnel cake batter, drop it 300 deg oil, give it about a min, flip it for another min. and you are ready to go.
The batter can be a little on the thick side so it sticks to the cookie

If your gonna try it you might as well use the double stuff oreo, after all, your frying a cookie.  :D

the biggest problem we have is not waiting for them to cool before you bite into them, thats where the ice cream comes in handy.. ;D

Never had em, no. Remember though, I'm the guy that tried to fry a snowball. ;D

Were going to have to have a meeting of the minds to decide when were going to break out the blueberry wafflecone ice cream. There is only three gallons, so do we do it Friday night, or do we do it Saturday?  Friday would mean, more then likely, generous servings, whereas Saturday, we would have to give smaller servings so it goes around.  Either way, I'm getting a BIG BOWL FULL! ;D ;)

Just a reminder to the ones at the pig roast that are trying to fit in smaller clothes that the blueberry wafflecone ice cream will cause the clothes to feel like they are shrinking. To be on the safe side it would be a good idea if they did not partake of the ice cream so the rest of us could have more.  8)

Well, its just me and the piggy right now. I figure, about another hour and the pig will be ready to face the day. ;D    I wanna thank Wally (Reddog) and his wife Mary for taking care of the purchase of "little wally" this year (The pig). That was a tremendous help and we love those two. (Mary and Wally)  :)  (Little Wally too  ;))

I thought I would take a minute before I start putting the beans together to post some photos of supper last night. I dont have a count, but we had quite a bunch of friends here and had a great time.  Looking forward to the day!

Well, Jeff,

My oldest got sick on the last day of our trip (yesterday).  We have a Dr. Appointment for her today.  My Niece had strep throat last week so we are worried she has it too.

I am debating on coming myself, but it wouldn't be the same without the family (and the planned sneak attack on Wildflower ;)).   I just picked the peppers for the salsa too :(

I'll make the call in the next few minutes.  In any case, say hi to everyone and from the little ones, especially to the Stump Jumper crew.  There are going to be a few tears when I break the news to the ones still sleeping.

I tried talking him into telling work were to go and heading out this morning but he just did not think that he could make it up there safely after being up for 24 hours  smiley_sleeping .

So hope everyone enjoyed lunch and eat some for us. food2

Wouldn't you know OWW would be standing there looking for what is "Left".  :D

That pig looks like it is "All Right" to me.  :D :D

I have it on good authority that the "left" hams are the tenderest.   Granddad would take me to Sunrise Grocery, where he was good friends with the butcher, and order a "left" ham.  This scenario would repeat its self every time he would go in.

"I've got some good looking "Right" hams", says the butcher.
"No, Gotta have a left ham, their the most tender.  Most pigs are right footed and scratch with that right foot.  The "right" hams get tough.  They just stand on the left foot and it lets the left ham be the most tender. "

Then there would be a lengthy conversation about wrapping it up and weighing it.  I, being knee high to a toad, would leave thinking that they were some might smart fellows.  :D

I sure missed going to the Piggy Roast this year. :'(  There was just no way for me to make it this time.

The event is always in three distinct phases;  There is Friday evening, when everybody is really pumped and excited about seeing all the old friends and new faces.  Then there is all day Saturday with wall to wall people and not nearly enough time to visit with everybody.  But Sunday morning has turned out to be my favorite time there, both times I've been able to attend.  It is quiet and calm, with just a few folks around, mostly long-time and very active Forumites.  That is the time when you can get in a real quality visit with someone you have admired for a long time.

I got a little blue this past Friday night, and was a touch bummed out all day yesterday, but I'm downright melancholy this morning.  I really wish I was there.  :-\

If I can figure out how to shake the pictures out of my camera, I'll post a couple.

Dad was very interested in the Rust Reaper sample, and he eyed up my Wood Mizer cap. He'll probably grab it before I have a real chance to break it in...

I left my orange directors chair behind. Oh, well...It could become the RavioliKid Hot Seat...

Thanks again to everyone for such a wonderful time - especially the hosts!

Raviolikid,

I occupied the Hotseat chair this morning in your honor, so it was well used.  I really enjoyed meeting you!  You are a sweetheart.  Good luck in your educational endeavors, and let me know if I can ever aid you in any way.

BTW, that camper is so cool ;D.

Kevin_H,  those cinnamon laced pancakes with the maple syrup were simply outstanding, and I want to thank you for your generosity.  You have a wonderful family, and you cook good grits :D ;D.

The contest was guessing the number of pine cones spruce cones in this clear plastic container about 500ml in size. About the cypherin part, I just did as a hillbilly does and guessed, but I heard that the Yooper borrowed a calculator.  I am not sure how the calculator helped, but he won by a large margin. I am thinking that he shut his eyes and just punched in some numbers. :D

Sure looks like everyone had a good time and I sure wish I could have been there but I am being held against my will for a number of reasons right now, but maybe next year.

The only other comment I will make is the same thing that someone once told me when I was caught wearing shorts. "Those are the whitest legs I've ever seen!"     :D :D

Tom, you and DanG were sorely missed....Danny and I were proud to represent the South.
2 of us against the crowd of Yankees are about the right odds.Danny (WDH) had figured out the real correct answer for the cones was ZERO.  The question was how many PINE cones in the pig.  He shared that info with me but we went ahead with our best guestimates of the SPRUCE cones.......Danny was a lot closer than me.

We did have Dr. Buck in the southern contingent, so we were not so outnumbered after all.
My sincere thanks to all responsible for the Pig Roast.  This was my third time and not my last........Like McArthur, I shall return......And you folks can stop worrying about someone REPLACING Tom in that chair.....No one will replace him........Thanks again........Everyone loves my two new t-shirts........I am still in Michigan getting ready to attend my 53 high school reunion next Saturday and I willl wear one there.......FOE

Just couldn't make it this year.  Next year is looking a lot better.  Heading to Fla to visit some southerners and the NSS convention this weekend.

Jeff, you and Tammy are gracious hosts and very giving people.

Hey, since I wasn't there this year someone else will have to start the "create-a-caption" thread ;D

Well, that only leaves the Northerly Northern to be spoken about :).  Where I was this weekend felt real Northerly Northern to me ;D.  But, it was very nice, I must say 8).

BTW Tim1234, the Boss has a great caption pic that he took Sunday morning.  I am sure that he remembers which one it is.

Oh absolutely, without a doubt!  In fact, I wouldn't mind spending my summers up there.  It's supposed to be upper 90s with high humididity here tomorrow, with heat index in triple digits. :o  Spring and Fall are deeelightful around here, but Summer and Winter pretty much stink.  Maybe N. Zealand in Winter and the YouPee in Summer would be a good arrangement, eh?

The PiggyRoast is such a great event, maybe Jeff should do it twice a year, like August and Febbiewary? ;D :D

Pasbuild was the winner of the guess the number of pine cones  spruce cones in the plastic pig, but I was the second place winner and received a prototype Logrite sawbuck. It seems to be well made and very sturdy. I like the center supports so the last short section of the log will be held while cutting. It folds and can easly be carried with one hand while the other hand carries the chainsaw. I tried it out today and it worked well. Thanks Logrite for donating the sawbuck. 8)
Now if Keven would make a wooden insert for the top to convert it to a little table top, then you could put the chainsaw on it and do maintanence. ;) ;D

That sawbuck is pretty DanG cool! Might need a light spring loaded chain around the log for the last piece.

Well, I just get back from the energy show in Phoenix and boy would have liked to be at the roast instead of that 112 degree heat.  I know, I know, it's the humidity not the heat.  But, I ready did miss not being with you guys.

As a direct (or indirect) result of the Pig Roast, we had Piggy Roast visitors today.

Enjoyed joining Robert and Linnea for a tour through parts of the Forest Products Laboratory this morning, and at Da Rox where we met up with Burlkraft.

 Had a great time.

Well we made it through the pig-roast-do-the UP-Wisconsin-Minnesota-Wisconsin-Illinois thing safe and sound.  Put 2010 miles on the truck and never stopped for fuel  8)

Many thanks to Jeff and Tammy for the splendid hosting and to all the forumites who braved the high cost of fuel to turn out.  It was a pleasure to meet old friends and make new ones.  :)

One of the high spots of our adventure was meeting up with Beenthere for an informative tour of the wood products lab in Madison, WI.  Boy, would I like to play with some of those toys  :D
After the tour Linnea and I traveled to the storied town of Roxbury and joined Beenthere and Burlcraft at the exotic Roxbury Inn for what is shaping up to be an annual event.  Great food and great company  :)

We got home this past Thursday just now getting time to post.  Haven't really had time to even look through my pics to see what needs to be posted.  It was a great time visiting with everyone again and meeting new people.

We would like to thank the sponsors for their donations, Jeff and Tammy for letting us stay there this year and hosting the piggy roast and for everyone that helped behind the scenes.

We all had a great time.

Haven't even had time to check out the blades from Wood-Mizer yet, but they are here
Thank You Wood-Mizer

Looks like I may have to make 4 cheesecakes next year even with the smaller crowd 3 wasn't quite enough.
