Texans Tailgate 101 - Houston, Tx 9/8/07

Postby DaHorns » Thu Aug 30, 2007 6:57 pm

I just was asked to bring my pit down for Tailgate 101 next Saturday for Academy Sports & Outdoors. Gotta cook 1500 samples of brisket and sausage. Anyone planning on going? We will have our banner out for all to see. We will also be in the flyer/ad for the event. Come by and say hi, if your so inclined!!!!

Anyone have any idea of how many slices of brisket you get out of a 10-12# brisket when cut as thick as a pencil? Trying to figure out how many briskets to get.

Lisa is a HUGE Texans fan, so she is really excited about being asked to do this.

Wooooooooo dawgie, what a experience!!!!

First and foremost I'd like to say thanks to Ritch and Texana for stopping by and saying hello and visiting for awhile, and thanks for dropping off my order Texana, I really appreciate it!!! It was great to finally meet you guys and look forward to hooking up again soon.

Now for the "experience". Well, we ran the gammet of issues this weekend. We started off byhaving a small grease fire about 3/4 of the way through the cook, I was really worried that the fire ruined the briskets, fortunatly, I was wrong. They came out really good, since we had to do 14 briskets I decided to foil. I was really pleased with how they turned out. The second issue we ran into was carving 14 briskets by myself in 2 hours for samples, so I'd slice then cut the slices into chunks. Talk about a pain in the buttocks!!! The electric fillet knife helped out immensly. The third issue was that I forgot how people act when it comes to free food, much less BBQ. I could not keep up with the amount that people were taking. We would give them 1 piece of brisket and a piece of sausage. I did notice people going thru multiple times (one lady I counted 7 times). There were many small "experiences" that taught us a few lessons. Now for the one that really peaved me off, and I dont have anyone to blame except myself. I made a bunch of extras for the employees of the store, 10 racks of spares, 20 stuffed chicken thighs, and 60 ABT's. Well with all of the insanity, I forgot all about the ribs. I put them on at 6a, foiled them at 9a, and pulled them at 2:30, anyone see the problem there? I guess the 3-5-1 method doesnt work to well :wink: ...... one thing they were was tender. I was able to give them away though, go figure. All in all it was a big leaning experience, and our biggest cook to date. I forgot to mention the Texans cheerleaders, wow, they were "exciting" :wink: ......

I forgot to mention the police officer who came to "visit" us at 2am asking what we were doing. Needless to say, he really didn't understand low and slow.

Ok horns I'm jus wonderin'.

Did YOU have to pay for the meat?
Surely NOT.

What was the purpose of the "free samples" I mean who was selling/advertising what?

I do not envy you all the hassles, I know portioning for more than a family of 4 or so is way over my head.
Now I might suggest that you could maybe enroll in a tele-course in food mgmt. somewhere...maybe A&M extension svc.

then you could upgrade your handle to DaAgs....

First I will address you initial question, Academy paid for the meat. We cooked it up for them and handed it out. The purpose was to have more draw for the event. We had no problem with the food management. As for the last portion of your question.......Not in 100 lifetimes...... :roll:
