Snowballs are finely shaved ice with a flavored simple syrup added to it. Really popular down here with it's too hot to be productive outside.

What do you guys want to munch on from cajun land this year?


That gumbo was pretty amazing, last year.

I'm bringing something other than boudin. Maybe another type of gumbo, not sure. I want to bring something that you won't be able to find in any of those "Cajun" restaurants.

Ah mystery solved! And so much for maque choux I guess, oh well... Corn seemed a good fit for a meeting of us too.

Bring it big man, the more food people bring the better we will be.
Other than likker I'm not sure what to bring, I'm a Cajon but a very long time Virginia resident, we always make Cajon food in my home as I'm very proud to be a coon ass. lol
More than likely, I'll bring shrimp sauce pecaunte' or if time permits make it fresh right there.

Too bad craw fish ain't in season in Sept or we'd be having a good ole fashioned craw fish boil. Oh well:(

Hoping when invites go out that there will be room for me; if so I just made cuts and put my first apple brandy on wood today. It will be ready for y'all to sample come S3:18. My treatment plan once I'm happy with the wooding I have in mind for it is to proof down to 85, then find the firmest organic medium Fuji apples I can. I'll wash them really well, and will be placing 22.5oz (out of the 90oz total 80 proof I'll yield) in four jars, on four of those apples (one each) to mimic one of the finest offerings of a very fine French apple brandy - Calvados Drouin - Calvados Pomme Prisonnière.

By September this brandy should have been aging on these apples for about 3-3.5 months, I'll be putting a paper towel in the top of the jars and the top on tight, but the 'lid' upside down, allowing a very small angels' share so that this brandy can then age off very very finely for us all to enjoy as a really fine first attempt.

Is this by invitation only? If not, are rookies allowed or do we have to pay a special tariff??? :lol: It’s a long way from here, but, I’d love to get to meet some of you folks I’ve been corresponding with and sounds like it would be well worth the trip! If there is room, I’d love to attend (once I get a release from the warden). :ewink:
Hope to met y’all in PA.

Well rats! The warden says I have a previous obligation that weekend. My frustrated response was, “So who else, that I don’t know, is getting married now????” Not the best response. :roll:
Looks like for now PA is not on my itinerary. I’ll regret not getting the opportunity to meet all of you folks. Maybe sometime down the road.
Have a blast!

I'm looking forward to going, if space is there for me; but I'm wondering when the announcement is going out and hoping it'll be soon.

Just checking in, the dates are set, my office knows I'll be gone and I'm looking forward to having a great weekend.

I have some good treats for you guys/gals, not alot but enough I hope I don't get pulled and searched. lol

I hope I'm not stepping out of bounds with all my hype but I'm just so fukn stoked to be able to meet some of you guys and be a part of something more than my own little world of this hobby and HD.

3 months seems like forever but we know a blink will blow that by quickly.

looking forward to this and some r&r from the every day life.
What does everyone else plan to bring? Drinks, food, etc etc
I have one Cajon dish I know anyone without a shellfish allergy will enjoy, if there's anyone that is allergic please state so so I don't get anyone in a dangerous situation.

Shit man, I'm giddy as a school girl on prom night thinking of this.

I haven't even had the chance to get a neutral wash going yet this year. Haven't fermented a drop. I need to get my priorities back out of order if I'm going to have anything to bring haha

You got something Shine? I guess I won't make it. I was supposed to get a message/email even if there wasn't room, but I didn't get anything. I hope you guys have fun. I was really hoping to see you all there, I had my apple brandy aging, I have a LOT of things aging that I was planning on bringing along. Maybe next year y'all, or maybe something else can be arranged around these parts...

Shucks tho I ain't gonna lie, I feel like a 7 year old who woke up on Christmas morn and raced downstairs just to realize Santa forgot me and the tree is turned off/burnt out and nothing is there. :esad:

Well so we were supposed to get a confirmation of date message/email giving the exact date and he said he'd let me know if there was room, since I was new, one way or another, but I haven't seen anything at all. It sounded like you knew a firm date/more than I did, but I guess not still huh?

Maybe I will still see you/all! I'll have apple brandy with a bit o pear in it, cherry mango brandy, and lychee papaya brandy, plus some rum or two (I think the honey butter vanilla hazelnut rum for sure), and some of my Golden Promise malt scotch. Who knows what else by then...

I never gave a specific date when I would be getting back to anyone - I'll get my information to you if/when it's available. I've been sending emails out to people as the date gets closer. I assure you the party is still happening.

DD - As I've said to you in previous emails, there are veteran forum members that have been attending these things for a few years now. I want to make sure that they are accommodated before I start inviting additional people as I've only got so much room at my place to host people.

I've been crazy busy the last few months with various thing - not that I'm very active online to begin with but, I was sitting down this evening reading through the last few years worth of Jedfest and Truckorama type threads and it made me realize, this is not being talked up enough. Ask anyone who's been to a meet and greet, it's such a great time. Great people, awesome food, and great drinks. It's overshadowed a few family vacations (dont tell my wife I said that tho).

I've sent out emails to everyone with my address. I'm sure all of you can get a hold of SCD but, if you need my number for anything, let me know. I'll PM it to you. I'm kind of a hermit when it comes to online and the forums but I do lurk around.

Weekend of September 23rd - pot luck style, I'll be off Friday to Monday. Wife will be heading out Friday night with the kids and be back on Sunday at some point. Suburbia for sure but, my neighbors are pretty great.

Keep it alive friends! It's gonna be fun!

I find myself doing the same thing ever now and again. I just went through the whole thread for S3:17 over at TBs a few days ago. The missus and I had a great time, and we're looking forward to this one.

Hopefully there's some new lies for the bench once we're all together.

So I think I'll be making it y'all and I couldn't possibly be more excited! I also just found the maple syrup rum thread by RandyMarshCT and I REALLY hope he makes it so I can try some of that, because I am WAY beyond curious with all the positive things I read there, especially with Odin saying it's the best rum he's had. I love the things RE aging Randy talks about doing with it.

I'm gonna have some really interesting things for the members. I have a rum aging now that I will be proofing down in a couple weeks that I've been pulling it's dominoes, then soaking them in cognac and some in sherry, letting them dry, then dropping them back in. I also got some high natural vanillan med toast French oak dominoes from Still Dragon that I tossed one in and they have an AMAZING level of chocolate/cocoa in them that has added to this rum in a profound way. The smells of cocoa/vanillan/custard/walnut/oak coming off the rum are just amazing right now. It's not done yet. Once I proof down I have a few more tricks up my sleeve. But it's already, and I'm not shitting y'all, sipping like a super premium rum, and it's only just been aging in a 2.5 gallon jug for 3 months on various dominoes:
Japanese maple, sugar maple, American/French/Hungarian oak - all of differing toasts for a flavor balance I was looking for. It was sitting in my garage during this sweltering summer heat and that seems to have made a lot of difference, but the biggest difference I noticed was a couple weeks ago when I used my new ultrasonic machine to give it 3 10 minute treatments. Where before all those woods were bungling around in there and it was a bit hot and like a New Orleans bar waiting for a fight to break out, post-treatment it turned into a symphony. Can't wait until not only I'm done working on this, but then when I get there and you all have a chance to try and comment on this beast of a rum. It's certainly something I'm already proud of and I feel I've outdone my skill level at only 7 months distilling.

I'll also have my apple/pear brandy, my lychee/papaya/pear brandy, my mango/cherry/pear brandy... And I'm not even sure what else yet. I MAY bring a bottle of 'Stolen Overproof Rum' which is store-bought, however it is quite a treat, it's only a 375, however folks, this is a HAMPDEN rum, and it's QUITE a thing, lemme tell you... FUNK FUNK FUNK and beyond that, creme brulee, caramel/bananas foster, I had to go through some crazy shite to get a hold of two bottles of it.

I am really looking forward to trying ShineOn's butter rum, also his estery funky dunder rum, that's gonna be something I can't wait for.

Man I need to make my agings HURRY the F up. I'm hopin' the heat sticks around so maybe the coconut sugar distillate I just put on medium and heavy toasted maple in the garage will be ready for y'all to try. I'm tellin' ya this is the (I'm calling it coconut - shit it ain't rum... but it ain't sugarhead neither, it's smooth as supple college girls pulling you down and smiling -- no offense to any women folks present) thing y'all have got to give a try making. Trying this when I'm done with it will convert you I'm certain.
