    I would sooo love to do this. It is a little bit of a hike for me (6.5 hour drive) for a weekend getaway. I will keep a watch on this. I have a large and small big green egg. I bring the small with me for car camping. I can easily smoke an 8-9 lb butt on the small.

    Just a suggestion for all. For pulled pork, a FoodSaver works great for cooking BBQ ahead of time and reheating later. You can smoke the Q ,pull it, vac seal and freeze. Transport he frozen Q in a cooler with ice. Depending on the outside temp, the ice will last a long time because the frozen Q helps maintain a low temp. To reheat you just need a pot of simmering water. Some will use boiling water but FoodSaver recommends you keep the temp below 180 or so. Simmer about 30 minutes or so around 170-180, and it will come out almost as good as the day it came off the smoker.

    That close to how I will transport mine. I smoke ahead of time and freeze the whole thing. Then transport it frozen in a Polar Bear cooler with ice packs. I pull it there and then heat it in my Dutch Oven. It comes off so juicy and yummy! I serve sauce on the side of course.

    Ah man... this sounds like so much fun... Unfortunately it's the same weekend as the Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival.... I'll be hangin' there...

    I'm planning on being there. Will have some combination of wife/children with me for an overnighter (one hammock and one or two tents). Whoever does not stay the night will arrive on Saturday for the feed. I can bring a high-output single burner (think fish cooker), a couple of coolers of bottled water, slaw if needed, perhaps some cookies/brownies or other dessert. You have my number if you need to contact me. I will sign up on the spreadsheet.

    Thanks for setting this up.

    In theory, there's no difference between theory and reality.
    In reality, there is.

    I was on the fence, but am now officially out. I have a Scout that is having his Eagle Court of Honor the same weekend, and that will take priority. Hopefully I can still hang in the backyard and think about everyone down there enjoying the BBQ...........RR

    I'm certainly sorry to hear that yall won't be able to attend, we'll pour a little sauce out for our missing hammock homies.

    On a brighter note, we are less than 50 days from the hang. Time to start perfecting those BBQ recipes.
