RhodyFest gear and food

OK, here's what we've got and need so far. Needs, plans, etc. will also be affected by where we decide "home base" will be (for instance - lighting up briquets for cobbler wont go over so well in a hotel room.) so that decision should be made soon. I'll vote for the campground/campfire setting - I like it more but I admit its a bit selfish since that's where I'll be staying.

Remaining needs have a double asterix and would be nice items have a single.

Dinner:
* Pre-meal munchies: chips & dips (done – fliboy), veggies and dip (done - Quentin), other stuff welcome of course.
A couple of main dish type things – chili (done – fliboy), Jambalaya or Gumbo (done - FredA), stew, kabobs, steak-tips (done - GregO), fish , etc.....
* Desert things: cobbler (done - hawkeye), cookies, etc....
* Some side dish things - potatoes (done - novice), Heat the hut beans (done – JimW), rice pilaf, zatarans, vegies, salad, bread (done - Quentin), etc....
Brunch (convenient to camp breakdown):
** Your basic brunch things – O.J. (done – JimW), eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns (done - Quentin), pancakes, etc...
** Coffee
Other needs:
** Stoves - 4 burners (3 burners by JimW)
Grill (done – Juro, JimW, GregO)
Cooking utensils (done – JimW)
Pots/pans (done – JimW)
Clean up items - towels, soap, scrubbers (done – Juro, fliboy)
Plastic utensils (done – Juro)
** Disposable plates/cups (plates done – Juro)
Trash bags (done – JimW)
Coolers/ice (done – Juro)
Tables (done – Juro)
** Lanterns (could use more– Juro)
* Pogie oil (done – Juro and likely others)
Large tarp (done – Juro)
First aid (We should all have this)
* Firewood (a little - hawkeye, JimW, Chuck?)

Sorry to not have grabbed something to help out. I have to play this one close to the bone with the big boss. Fishing patience is low, kids new school routines are heavy. Like last year I'll break away if I can and shoot down there. Nice work Hawkeye.

Dinner at the campsite seems more "traditional", but having the option to move indoors and having access to conventional ovens is good too. Also, food prep and cleanup may be easier in the hotel if they have decent kitchens. Gee, do ya think they'd let us build a campfire on the beach?

I will bring some bread and veggies & dip for dinner. Will do home fries for brunch.

Gregg, Nice job with the list. I can bring some wood for the campfire and I think Chuck will come through in a big way.
Grego, The afterburner would be sweet for boiling water if we decide to have the meal at camp. (for cleanup water, thawing out frozen waders, etc...)

Quentin, The fire on the beach sounds like a good idea. I wonder if we could get away with it? There is also the issue of public pogie oil consumption.

Quentin's such a great guy - someone's gonna have to convert this man from the 'dark side' ;-) ;-)

Maybe we can get the fly casting lessons in this year! Might have Capt.Todd around too, not definite yet. I'll bring a spare 9wt you can keep thru the rest of the season, although I do not have a spare reel.

Thanks Juro
I'd love to give it a try but don't worry about using up valuable "clave time" to do casting lessons. If it works out -- great! I know I would enjoy flyfishing and I like to think that I would be pretty good at it. Still, I'm not sure if I can ever be converted completely ;-)

I've seen it done in a backyard, dirt not sand. I was less than impressed with the results. The pit, rocks, fire, rockweed deal I assume is something the native americans came up with because they did not have a big aluminum pot with a 100,000btu burner. Make sure there are no embers or ash left in the rocks unless you want that wood fire taste in your lobsters, clams, reds, and corn. The idea is to heat up the rocks and sandwich the goodies, that are in burlap bags, between layers of rockweed. The rockweed has capsules that burst under the heat and release moisture to add to the steam produced. There's probably more to it than what I know and if it were done right it's probably great, but it's alot of work. I'd go the steam in a big pot route.

I'm with Jim, Clam Boils are Better & Easier then clam Bakes. If done Properly, a clam back can be really good, but I've been to as many Not Good as Good. Years Ago, the Guys at the Bourne FD used to do a pretty good one.

Just a thought. Sounds way too complicated.

I like the idea of doing a cook out on the beach at the hotel!

If there are a significant number of people staying at the hotel it probably makes more sense to have the cookout there. Burlingame charges a visitors fee and you can't beat the ocean for scenery. My 3 burners are attached to the camper but it should not be an issue if the hotel rooms are equipped with cooktops.
Gregg, What about the cobbler, assuming you guys are planning on it. The dutch oven rules, do you think a small charcoal fire on the beach would be doable?

I can see it all now.
A little salsa & chips
Take a few casts
Some pasta salad
Take a few casts
Some steaktips
Take a few casts Oh....ZING.... I'm ON! Save me some cobbler.......................
