My other thread got lost in the shuffle, so here's another alert. We'll be having our semi-regular barbecue and pie celebration on May 24 in Pewaukee. This coincides with International WSM Smoke Day X.
 
All Roadfooders (including crappy British kitchen sellers) are welcome. Send me a PM for the address and directions.

Seems pretty complete protein-wise.  Are you planning on any grilled fruits or vegetables?
 
And a bacon tart or quiche would certainly work.  Know anyone who makes pie crust?  If not I'm sure a frozen one would be just as good.

Sounds like a wonderful day. You can produce some amazing barbecue with the WSM's.

P.S. That Bananas Foster Pie sounds amazing.  It wouldn't be a bad thing if a piece or two made its way south of the Cheddar Curtain.  Just sayin'.

And to think, I've got a bottle of Brobeck's Mustard BBQ Sauce sitting in my office with your name on it.  How like a serpent's tooth is an ungrateful ScreamingChicken.
 
Doesn't matter because I'm enjoying a lunch of leftovers made up of a wonderful smoked beef tenderloin and turkey leg, cheesey potatoes, tangy baked beans, and abe_froman's amazing Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings, proving, with a little ingenuity, you can turn bacon into a vegetable.
 
So happy you all had fun.  Before leaving Cleveland, I suffered through a crisp and refreshing Cambodian Chicken Salad followed by a heaping noodle dish containing ground and whole shrimp, ground pork, and a colorful array of veggies, all washed down with a tall Vietnamese iced coffee.  It didn't look as good as that brisket up above, but it was no slouch neither.
 
Ooh, I see there's pie dessert.  Who'da thunk it?

Those are silicon trusses. Much easier for me to use than butchers twine.

You can have 'em.  Nasty little things, they are.

What's that bright pink wormy looking thing around the bacon-topped meat?
I'm not sure but it crawled out just before JRP put it on the grill.
 
It's some sort of heat-resistant, possibly somewhat elastic, reusable cord that's designed to be used in place of butcher string.

Yes they are on Amazon and other places. Googled silicone meat trusses and got a number of sources.

JPfeff, please pass along this story to the Pie Diva that I heard on NPR last night:

The story: http://www.npr.org/2014/07/07/329585126/whipping-up-a-second-serving-of-atlantic-beach-pie
The recipe: http://www.npr.org/2013/04/11/176279512/a-north-carolina-pie-that-elicits-an-oh-my-god-response
 
I don't think I've seen it at previous Pie Days, so maybe next year?

The thread is Vintage Pies & Recipes. I bet NPR got the idea from here.
Re:May 24 - Weber Smoke Mountain Smoke Day (& Pie, too) 2014/07/08 11:12:11
Any chance that next year there'll be enough pies so that a few can be used for skeet?
