Dutch Oven Gathering (Dog) was on the ticket today. This was a gathering of food enthusiasts and a couple of food freaks. Is there a difference? It was held at the Meathenge Labs. It was a beautiful day in Richmond, California. The thermometer was hovering around 80 degrees. We were gathered around the heated cast iron vessel and the designated smoker to practice for the Rendezvous festival next month. There were some serious food critics present. Cookiecrumb, Zoomie, Mad Meat Genius, Pluto Demoted,. Meathenge and last but not least the defunct and Funky The 5 Pints. What a crowd. One slip and you are in blogger purgatory. Everybody survived and returned to the abode with bellys full of smoked meats, vegetables, bacon and dutch oven goodness.It was a perfect afternoon. Thanks Guy!
