  • Starting to get my barrel(s) ready to place out there tomorrow

    Well got my barrels ready to go (thanks again yoda and Alaskanoutdoorsman you guys are TOP NOTCH!).

    So today I started to make my base coat for the bottom of the barrel (so to speak) did a candy base with mallow's, cookies, ding dongs and some unmelted cookies. Getting ready to pop my corn in a few moments but wanted to share what it feels like to literally be the "bottom of the barrel".

    Hope the weather isnt too crappy tomorrow so I can get the site up and running.

            Looks awesome if you head up north to set up let me know a snow update. Did you pop that corn with a kettle corn maker?

              Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

                Hunter, I popped the corn with a 5 gallon pot on my kitchen stove (LOL), took a bit of trial and error but worked out well. If I end up getting up to my point I will most def. post up a snow level thread. I am not looking forward to the trek in though as the route to my station is all off the snow pack (over 1/2 mile in untouched snow that was 2-3 ft deep a week ago).

                  Fox - let me know if you need to borrow a deep fryer; it's quicker and will save you time. I'll be making popcorn today in the garage.

                          You messed up big time!!! You used reduced calorie syrup. Hows that going to fatten a bear!!!! LOL

                          Looks good. I like your thinking with the sticky sweet stuff on the bottom. Good Luck

                            Yah I would hate to piss off some PETA people for using FULL CAL syrup... then I would be "not watching out for the bears by setting up a unhealthy buffet bait station"... I can see it now HAHAHA.
