must haves?

What else should I be thinking about bringing? Do I need to have my own prep table? Is a canopy needed if it rains etc? Am I missing something obvious?

And what about my vehicle? Am I allowed to have it in my area? A previous poster mentioned sleeping in his car (or perhaps his wife was sleeping in the car).

You need everything it takes to be self sufficient.

Plus a hand wash station, a instant read meat therm, Something to keep the meat cold before cooking and hot after cooking.

Get Rub the Butt's list and then ask more questions. We're here to help.

This is the checklist we are using right now but I'll tell you we have yet to not have to go out to buy something we forgot to bring.

Some things are obviously not necessary, like the musical rooster, at least not for you anyway.

Yes, but only because I've been on a diet to get ready for Q season. January I was closer to 280.
