    To piggyback on what Troutman said, I’d find one place for everyone to stay, if it’s a hotel or motel. Check into whether they have a central meeting place for everyone to gather. It’s great for everyone to get together for drinks at the end of the day. Then I’d post a few pics of the place, along with their rates and a link to the hotel website. If everyone is scattered around town it makes it a little harder to socialize and plan your activities. Agree with picking a date ASAP and then posting it. It’s almost impossible to pick a weekend that works for everyone. Good luck Richard, I think you’ll have a great turnout.

    After having helped organize 3 of these I have a few suggestions;

    1) If cooking is anticipated make sure it’s a well organized group effort. Otherwise 2-3 people feeding 20 isn’t an equitable solution.
    2) Pick a date like now. Then ask for a head count. You’re never going to get there otherwise.
    3) Let those coming know where they can stay and how much they will have to pay.
    4) Establish a central meeting place where everyone can get together at some point.

    Hope you guys can pull this off. La Crosse is beautiful in the early summer. If gas wasn’t a zillion dollars a gallon I’d be tempted. Have fun !!!

    If you reconsider for May, the first weekend is no go but I could possibly do the rest.

    If I can make it, I'll be there! I'm only 1 1/4 hr away from La Crosse so it's an easy drive. I'd love to meet y'all.

    Hungry Peddler, hands down the best french onion soup I have ever had.
    Octoberfest used to be the best place to get a beer bath from beers air launched in the band tent. The Dairy Queen booths fried curds were made onsite, there was always a line
    Used to go to LaCrosse for Octoberfest every year and we also meet our Minnesota boating buddies there during hard water season for a fun mid winter weekend.
    Used to be good Foosball in LaCrosse too.
    Miss LaCrosse....

    Yeah, never will hit a date that works for everyone. Can only hope for those that can make it, to make it a good time, and more draw for future gatherings.

    June is going to be pretty tough for me as we already have at least 3 weekends booked, I guess there’s always next time if it doesn’t work.

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
