Starting this September there will be a cookhouse running at the Flying Lead games. Bringing the taste of the South to these desolate Yankee hills.

Now I want to run this as 'in game' as possible, as it is all about the atmosphere I think.

There will be Tables and Chairs, Drinks, Poker and food served from Friday evening until Sunday Lunchtime. You can sit for your grub, or take it out in a mess-tin. There will always be a vegitarian option running alongside the meat, and all food will be cooked in good old cast iron.

Everything will be paid for in dollars (or credit) in game, and there will be an honesty box for real money to help towards the actual running costs which people can contribute to as the see fit.

If anybody wants to rely solely on the cookhouse for his or her food for a weekend, then that is absolutely fine. If they could let me know in advance of an event, then I can work out a cost, make sure they will be provided for, and ensure that enough grub is reserved for them on the day so they do not go hungry.

I am trying to think of the humble way to say 'the food will be really good'.... But I can't think of it. ;)

Anyway, some examples of what I tend to do on an open fire are below. My point being 'This cookhouse don't heat up cans and call it cookin'

Mutton and Redcurrant Stew

Overcooked? No!

Bacon that is not crispy is undercooked.

Plus thin crispy bacon is the way it's always served in the USA. Not the crappy thick undercooked gammon we get over here...

I say cock and balls to your crispy bacon !!! Meat is supposed to chewy, not crunchy !!!
It will take less bullets to kill him now than if we wait for him to turn into a zombie.
