Since there was never a specific thread for recipes I guess there should be a place to put them.

Thanks for those recipes! If anyone can come up with the recipe for the hot chocolate that BGW serves during C-town, that would be amazing. My father normally can't handle ANYTHING chocolate...but for reasons unknown, he has NO problems with the BGW hot chocolate during C-town. Would be nice to be able to make that for him at home.

Hello everybody!

Someone close to me got a cookbook from the 80's that Busch gave away that has the festhaus recipes.

I am pending approval, but it might work out to where I can post it. No promises.

The cookbook on the right or a different one?

The one on the right. I wasn't sure if was rare or anything... just wanted to throw out the possibility in case it was a rare book :) Sorry if it's well known :/

No one has gone through and scanned it all in. If you'd like to, I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy it.

That said, I'd request you upload the pictures to a image host like Imgur vs attaching them to a post here. If the park wants to DMCA it for copyright infringement (ridiculous since no one can give the park money for a copy of their own), Imgur's lawyers will have to deal with it instead of us. :p

I am not a fan of Trappers meats at all. The Ribs are especially chewy and full of gristle. They 'look' good though, if that counts for anything :)

I'm sure there are better recipes out there, but sometimes it's just fun to have a BGW dinner.

I thought about scanning mine but I don't want to destroy the binding.

I think I came off a little too snarky. The truth is, BGW does have the best food at any themepark I've been to. And I enjoy it when I'm in the park. But that's kind of a "low bar" competition. When compared to real food, or, for those who may see it otherwise, food prepared from scratch at home would anyone really want to mimic what's at BGW? Leave BGW out of the equation: if I enjoy the occasional Big Mac (or whatever - pick your poison) does that mean I want to make a Big Mac at home? For me, the answer is probably no. But your mileage may vary.
