It's still not too late to start making your own corndog for JCF! And post your progress here! Take your time...it's gonna be a long, hot July! But, on the other hand, hurry!

PS post your JCG smokes in the regular WAYS July 2019 thread. Image :king:

I decided to fiddle with the cob a little bit. Anyone who knows me knows I despise the cheesy cob pattern printed on a wood shank so that got sanded off and a little stain applied. Sanded through a lot of the yellow coating MM puts on their cobs (there's still a lot of yellow but it doesn't look like a painted wall anymore) and went over the bowl with a tea bag to throw some more color variation into it. Once that was all done I melted some wax in a double boiler and hit the cob with a heat gun, laying beeswax on the surface like a meerschaum. Pic is filtered but closer to the actual color than the unfiltered picture was. Officially ready for July

Skipped a couple steps. All it needs is plaster and a finish

I've got something cooking for this if I don't forget all about it before July is over. I'm still in the incubation period before I can let this idea hatch. It promises to be tasty if I can pull it off.

I very much remember that commercial ... think of how old we're getting
I relish how old we're getting.
I dont . Id take a pass on it if it were possible ;)

I found my " corndog " and I'm going up to the barn to look for something .... while there , I think I'll try to do something with the shank

I'd forgotten all about this project. Now what was I going to do again?

Aw heck. I left mine in NC. Well, I got a couple bowls in last week. I’ll get some more the week of the 23rd.

Nice work there @Wooda.

So I saw everybody had already finished theirs and figured I'd slap something together today. Don't think I followed directions so very good. Used the mini MM Robb sent, I have two other slightly modified ones and like the dinky cobs. Put an Oak plug in the bottom and salvaged a vulcanite stem. Rushed it a little and might clean up the stem more still, first I need to test it out.
