Please post on this thread any opinions or suggestions all of you fine folks have as to how we can make this part of Carverfest easier, or at the very least, more convenient for all that attend.
In Charlotte, we have a Sam's club and a Frugal Mc Dougal's. For those who do not know, Sam's is where we can get bulk items, such as meat, veggies, breads and a slew of other things to feed everybody at a substantially reduced cost. Frugal Mc Dougal's is basically the same thing, however this store supplies the Beer and spirits.
Of course, those that attend can always bring their own stash. That's not a problem. However, if you folks would like, we can collectively figure something out that pleases everybody attending......without breaking the bank.
Just to let you all know, I have a truck that will have in the back 2 "marine" coolers that are approx. 4'x2'x2' along with a multitude of other sized coolers that will hold enough perishables for everybody coming with plenty of room left over for the non-perishables. Those coolers, once emptied into the refrigerators can be utilized for cokes, fruit drinks, Kool-Aid or whatever during the event. Kegs, and spirits are a 1/2 mile off the beaten path to Carverfest from Charlotte, so if you want, TFM-75 and I can pick everything up for those who are interested.
Please keep this thread focused on the topic at hand and if you are attending and are a "resident chef", if you will, let us know what recipies you want to have, and we'll make sure we have the cooking utensils to make it happen!
