Recommended Posts

Thanks to Bill for his ever so tasty briskit, Fred for his classic chili verde, and Patrick for slaving away in his small kitchen, getting flour on everything to produce another award winning cleverly decorated cake! Last but not least a big thank you to Shep for hosting at his place and providing fire and electricity.. Thanks to everyone for pitching in with side dishes!

It was great to see old friends and make some new ones.....

I agree, the meal was FANTASTIC....

And I can't say enough about Shep offering his "front yard" and firewood for the festivities. It just goes to show you why he is my hero.

Lon and I dearly wanted to host the event in our area of the camp, but he won out, and rightly so.

Till the next time,

Patrick .....

Thanks for making everyone show up! For everyone who missed it ... don't let it happen again.

Good cake, cookies, chile, brisket and chatter. I learn more each time I go and it was nice to find a couple of 20g+ space rocks.

Some of us will be out at Franconia in December. There is still some gold left there too.

I arrived home a couple of hours ago. Don Morin and I enjoyed seeing where all of you gather for your October hunt. Now that we realize that you eat before dark, perhaps next year we can actually RSVP to eat along with the group. I really enjoyed meeting new hunting friends and so good to see those of you whom I already knew. It brought back a lot of good memories where we would gather with eager hunters in the early Gold Basin meteorite days. Next year maybe we can convice John B. to be there, and yes, John, I did deliver the long awaited hug to Frank C. from you and Jenny. No matter how the luck of hunting goes, I still love Gold Basin.

Thanks for the tasty meat, Bill! I found a few meteorites but no gold...

the oatmeal cookies and peanutbutter/chip cookies were very tasty;thanks Twink and Terry...

for those that asked or care...

the pot of chili I served was made with:

about 6 pounds of boned pork ribs- bbq-ed then cubed...

3 large cans of smoked/chopped green chilis

3 or 4 chopped serrano chilis and four whole chilis which I removed as I thought the chili was getting too hot...

2 or 3 heaping tablespoons of red chili powder...

6-8 cloves of fresh garlic


water to cover the whole shebang...

bring to a boil and then simmer for the day...

Hi Fred,

Yes I care and was just about to ask! Thank you for the ingredient list, can't wait to make some here at home.

Super good green chile stew! And I had a piece of the brisket too, also super delicious, Bill. I am sure the rest of the spread was wonderful also, well, next year...will stay around longer to eat.

Fred I know you would have told me but whenever I thought of asking there was no pencil or paper around, thank you for the recipe.
And it looks like you had plenty of fun for 1 person with the photo of new found meteorites !!!! Nice beepin.
Hapy Huntn and there will be Chile Verde for the holidays at Frank C's house this year.
