Yes, that is one great pot in the upper left photo.
I'm not sure how many gallons it holds, but the other cookers looked upon my pot with envy.
Apparently size does matter.
It was a wedding gift from the Tybee Island crew of the NPS back in my Fort Pulaski days, so it has been around a while.
The collage is just a snapshot of the FFA Food Fest shindig from Friday night. The Food Fest helps to raise money for a few FFA scholarships to graduating seniors. Some of the money also goes to fund the auction purchases of livestock shown by FFA'rs at the upcoming fair in late March.
The partial menu included pulled pork, fried mullet, wings, fried turkey, swamp cabbage, chicken and rice, green beans, corn bread,corn on the cob, baked beans, gumbo, grilled sausage, grits, mac and cheese, and a whole bunch of other goodies .
The money comes through ticket sales and the after dinner auction of art and beautiful cakes. Mrs. FC made a mile high cake with goulash icing ... is that what she called it? Anyway, it was two layers of chocolate cake with a thick brownie layer in the middle and roasted pecans strewn about.
It went for $70, but some of the fancier cakes go for $250 ... usually purchased by a politician with an upcoming race.
I boiled 2 bushels of corn in the husk Friday evening and most of it was eaten by the crowd. Folks would stop by the table, peel back a cooked ear, and dip it in that coffee can which is mostly warm water but with an inch of melted butter floating on top. As you pull your corn out the butter clings to the kernels.
My Uncle Richard taught me this and it works great.
A dozen or so ears came home with us and they are going to be eaten today with steak and salad. We will be spoiling Emma who is home for the weekend, although I have not seen her yet. There was a big benefit concert in town last night and the star ... some guy named Craig Morgan, was staying at Emma's best buddy Corinne's house, so the girls were all atwitter ... "Daaaaaaaad, what do you mean you don't know who he is?"
I was not all atwitter, being only a casual country music fan.
Now if it were Buffett ... I could get all atwitter over Jimmy.
