    I am planning on smoking some butt for a graduation party for my daughter June 28 & I was suppose to get some help from another SMF member with a Lang 60 butt something else came up for them. I have 2 CG pro's with a side fire box butt I will be doing 50 to 100# of butt & probably 6 batches of Dutches wicked baked beans.
    I am hoping to find someone to help with ether a bigger smoker or someone to hang out with for a couple of nights smokin meat to get all that done for the party.

    I have off work starting on the Tuesday before so I will have the time to get it done but the moral support would be great too.

    Is anyone interested in West Michigan[​IMG]

    I wish you were closer too, butt I think I can do it with the equipment I have. It would be nice to have company doing 50 to 100# of meat & 6 or more batches of Dutches wicked baked beans.

    What is the best way to find out when all the butts are done[​IMG]

    I am putting on 8 butts of different sizes (66.8# total) & I have 3 temp probes. I will be using both of my CG's. I don't want to keep moving the probe & sticking holes in the butts. Do I put them in the smallest & shen they get done start checking the big ones, or do I put them in the biggest & figure the small ones will be OK because I am pulling & a higher temp than 195* won't hurt the little ones[​IMG][​IMG]

    WOW what a week...

    The day before my vacation to start prep for the open house I lost my job[​IMG]

    In spite of that the smoke went great & the butt was great. I was on an emotional roller coaster & didn't think to get q-view[​IMG]. sorry[​IMG]

    Thanks for all the help.

    I did get a part time job for Jeff Clark (organizer of the Silver Lake comp.) at his restaurant. At least for now it will supplement the unemployment.

    I so wanted to make it to Taste of Grand Rapids.. now with a car that gets 12 MPG ($.35 per mile & 150 mile round trip) no can go with no income to pay for $4.00+ per gallon gas.

    Hope to see a good turn out at the Silver Lake Comp.[​IMG]
