    Crock pot I make a sweet BBQ sauce and throw that in cook for a few hours. Made it once before came out really good. Thank you by the way hope it comes out good lol
     
  10. I'm putting mine on here in about 3 hours. First time going over night. Starting plenty early so I plan on having to warm it back up...unless I get into one of those crazy long Butts.

    About to fire up some pulled pork myself.  It seems like I've yet to have pulled pork NOT take close to 18 hours so I guess I have to go overnight.  The problem I have when this happens is that the minion method only seems to get me 6-8 solid hours of cook time and I need double that.  I'm hoping if I start these between 10pm and midnight that I can get that much time out of the minion method and actually get some sleep, then I can use wood chunks in the morning which need a lot more tending too.

    also, if you find that you are done early, I have done the double foil wrap and then wrapped in a towel and then placed in a cooler and those babies stay good and hot for a long time.  you could probably hold them like that for a few hours and then pull em and be all good.
     
  13. Sure does look purdy

    minion method is a way of lighting the coals.  you dump your briquetts in a basket then scoop out the middle and then light about a 1/4 chimney of charcoal and drop it in.  IT gets you a nice slow, and even burn so that you don't have to tend your fire all the time.
