Awesome collection of gifts there Caj.  You should be proud of the work you did.

Good point.  Please use those gifts and post about them.  Post the cooks on their FB pages too.  Link the owners to the posts via FB or email.  They want to see that they are getting some exposure for what they sent.  Doing this will keep them donating in the future.

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

We will do a cook using the Ash Dragon and make sure to give our opinion on it and share it on FB and whatnot. Actually Stephanie is doing a cook on the keg tomorrow and plans to use it, so I'll have her do the write up!!

Nate, the last 2 years were possible due to your hard work along with Rich and BK. You've done a TREMENDOUS job in getting donations, mind boggling really. You have gotten TOP NOTCH goods donated 2 years in a row. I think Broil King needs to hire you as the official Keg Ambassador to spread the word far and wide, but then again I am biased Smiley

Time for another Thank You to contributors.

 Having this next item already myself it reminded me to do another Thank You so I decided to make it the next one up. I went outside this morning to light the Keg to do pizza later. I removed the cast iron grate to light the Keg and I see that I need to clean out ash(I wish I had thought to take pictures)and add more lump. Without the Kick Ash Basket this would have been a longer process and messier too. I reach in grab the Kick Ash Basket by the handles, walk over to the trash can(it's drizzling out too)flip the lid off and shake the basket about half way in the depth of the can and it's done. Ash is removed that quick and no big mess. I put the basket back in the Keg, add lump and light it with my Mapp torch. All in what, MAYBE a minute or less?

Skip back to about a month ago when I received the package from Chad who is a two time contributor to our Kegtoberfest events. I open the box to see that he sent not one but two baskets and a pair of his grill grate lifters to be given away at Kegtoberfest. And these are the heavy duty version he has upgraded to making. I sent him a note of thanks and admiration that I sure wish I had one and he wished me luck and hoped I wwould be lucky enough to win one of the two. Guess what! I did!!!!! I was so happy that I won that Kick Ash Basket!!!! Another attendee and forum member Grillin-in-Cin, won the other one.



I hate taking pictures of myself. I want to say even though I was excited to be having this raffle and giveaway of donated items I was feeling like total crap. I had to apologize several times and muscle through the evening as I was having a major headache from a sinus infection. I hope I succeeded in putting on a good front but I really felt like crawling in bed under the covers. So that said here's the other lucky recipient of those awesome Kick Ash Baskets.

Me!



Any of you who don't already own a Kick Ash Basket owe it to yourself to order one or let the wife, girlfriend or kids know it's something you'd really really like for Christmas. Awesome product!!!!!!! If you do order one as I mentioned before tell Chad you saw them at Kegtoberfest 2015. BTW, it never hurts to have a backup for when you want to change from a high heat cook to a low and slow or even the kind or lump and wood chunks quickly without a lot of waiting or guess work.

Alright on to another GREAT product that was given away at Kegtoberfest 2015. I want to thank Brad Barret at Grill Grates for being a second year contributor and congratulate Corey(Yanknrebel)for winning a really nice set of Grill Grates. He sure looks like a happy guy with those grates doesn't he?






If you don't own a set already you need to check 'em out. They will save your foods from burning or overcooking if you're not a great griller and they'll make you a better griller if you are good!

Here's a really special Thank You I want to include Focuspuller(Larry)in on. He not only orders and pays for the paper products and eating utensils and other items but he arranged for us to have a first time demo at Kegtoberfest 2015. Thank you Larry!!!

Now Thea and Igor of UMAiDry http://www.drybagsteak.com/  joined us on Friday afternoon after flying in to Atlanta from Minneapolis, Minnesota and then renting a car and driving three plus hours to Scottsboro Alabama. On Saturday after we indulged in breakfast and brunch they held a demo of how to use the UMAIDry system. Afterwards Igor trimmed a beautiful Rib Eye that was dry aged 35 days and cut steaks from it that were then grilled on one of the Kegs and while those were grilling he cut steaks from a regular store bought Rib Eye Steak about the same weight(to the original that was dry aged). Same primal cut of beef from the same source(Costco). Immediately you could see a drastic difference between the two separate hunks of beef and more so between the two cuts of steaks. After being cooked again there was a distinct difference between the 35 day old dry aged and fresh cut steaks.

Here's Igor explaing the UMAIDry process.



Here he is again trimming the "aged bark" from the 35 day dry aged Rib Eye.

 

That 35 day dry aged loin cut into staeks. Beautiful!!!



Those beautiful steaks on the Keg.



Sorry again and yes I will blame it on not feeling well but I didn't get any other pictures of the demo. I can kick myself for not doing so.

Not only can you use this system for aging beef but they have charcuterie and salumi kits available. They brought some delicious lomo/lonzino and capicola for tasting and there may have been something else but again forgive me for I was not feeling that great. The kits you can order come with the spices, instaCure and whatever is needed to make your own charcuterie. Check it out on their website.

Then to top it off they contributed a bunch of Ribeye/Strip Loin dry aging kits for the giveaway Saturday evening.
Not only is it a great product but Thea and Igor are great people! I enjoyed meeting them and I was fortunate enough myself to be one of the lucky ones to win a Ribeye/Strip Loin dry aging kit. I just need to decide when to start my dry aging.

Below are some of the other lucky winners.....

bamabob



Yanknrebel



Grillin-in-Cin



RG



I may be missing one other lucky winner. Sorry about that!

Alright, so with the holidays coming soon I highly recommend you checking out UMAIDry and if you want to make and have your own dry aged beef for a great holiday dinner that will truly impress your family and friends call Thea or Igor or order online. However you do it please mention your learning about their great product from Kegtoberfest 2015 or on the Keg forum here.

Thank you once again to Thea and Igor!!!!!

I almost forgot to mention..... this makes for a great Christmas gift for someone you know that is difficult to buy for and it may become a new great hobby(that you get to eat). Also it's something you might pass on as a hint for others to get you for Christmas or any gift giving occasion.

Many companies sent very nice warez. Rich brought top notch stuff. It was a great event again!! I am thankful that those that showed made it an event to remember. I know we all get spread so thin and might not have gotten as much one on one time with folks as we wanted but I absolutely had a blast talking to some familiar faces and meeting new ones! Mary, Janice, Phil and the rest of Bob's clan, lol. All great people!

So my THANK YOU is not only to the folks that contributed prizes and swag but also those who took time to come hang out with a lowlife like me, lol!! Cheesy

I cherish all of you as people and part of the keg family!
