Well, the joke was on us. We got there, and kitchenelf and her DH were out to dinner!

Just kidding!!!!!! Kitchenelf grilled burgers and veggies (including my mushrooms!), and it was all wonderful! She already listed the menu, so I won't repeat it, but I will say it was great! My camera bag is in the car, so I will have to add pictures tomorrow.

Thanks again KE, it was so good and it was so good getting to talk with you again!

P.S. Alix's Apple Crisp was so good! (How's that finger, KE?).

My finger is fine - thanks for asking - how are your nail...shorter?

I didn't post any pictures 'cause you guys always do that. I'll post in your thread. I know you have to be relieved to be home. What an adventure!!! Can't wait until next year's adventure

It's just a hair shorter! LOL

We still need to unload the car (which is where my camera bag is) but I will post pictures as soon as possible. James's back hurts, so we still need to go pick up the cats, get his medicine, and go to the post office!

I'm lazy and I didn't read the whole thread. With the aforementioned beer-rear chickens and burgers, if you want to do one starch and one veg, I'd opt for some acid to cut through all the richness.

I don't have the book (and thus the recipe) with me, but Patrick O'Connell from The Inn at Little Washington has a fantastic marinated cabbage slaw in his "Refined American Cuisine" book. It's super simple, bright, and utterly delicious with charred, fatty, juicy BBQ fare. Lots of vinegar and celery seed.

Wow... check out that grill... and that smoker.... I'm jealous kitchenelf!
Looks great. Love the pic of the roasted veggies, and the one of the four charcoal starters . And you can see the fingerprint in the burgers so they don't shrink (see, I've been paying attention here ). And James chillin' with the pooch and the remote
Nice
