This is the third year in a row Mr. Big Food & Co. will be hosting a tailgate for a State game. This one’s before the LSU game so he’s doing a shrimp boil– shrimp, potatoes, corn cobs, sausage, seasonings (without shrimp and sausage for the vegans).
Tomorrow, Mr. Big Food and I will go to the Piglet to pick up a few things (!) and A. Leland will travel to Tupelo to pick up the shrimp. We are curious to see what 50 pounds of shrimp looks like. Tomorrow evening we’ll shuck 96 ears of corn.
We anticipate problems– not the least of which might be Karen– but then, we’d be fools to not. This is not our first rodeo.
|Clean & ready to go.|
Last year we did sandwiches. Sounds easy, right? Wrong and wrong and wrong again. Here’s Part One of Episode 2:
Mr. Big Food & Co. are hosting a tailgate after the MSU / Auburn game which kicks off at 11am central next Saturday.
We expect about 150 people. Here’s what we’ve done so far.
We have procured 28 pounds of beef brisket.
We have procured 28 pounds of pig sholder.
We have procured 35 pounds of turkey breast.
We stored it in the Deep Freezer.
That was Day One. We visited all three of the Big Grocery stores in S’vegas.
On Day Two– this morning– we went to Walmart to procure the rest of the list.
30 Vadalia onions & such.
Stay tuned. There’s some smokin’ comin’ up.
Part Two; Part Three, Part Four; Game Day.
