Smoking for sons wedding

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smokin swede, Jul 18, 2014.

  1. My middle son is getting married tonight and the reception is at our backyard tomorrow. He wanted pulled pork and grilled chicken. Decided to smoke the pork on thursday and reheat it on saturday. Got a case of butts from Sams Club, will smoke 8 and freeze the other 2. Also a case of chickens, cook 8 and save 4 for later. Here's some pics:

    Butts rubbed with Jeffs Rub and ready for the cooler

    6AM Thursday

    1AM Friday 165 deg and ready for foil and oven

    Did not reach 200 deg until 4:30AM then into the cooler to rest

    9AM and now time to pull

    Will post again tomorrow when it all comes together
  2. How wonderful on your son and that you're even hosting the warm and very fabulous food component of the celebration!

    Here is well wishes to all!!!! That's so exciting and your photos look terrific. I am sure that everyone will be impressed.

    Pratar du svenska? (I saw your name/slogan, and I speak Swedish and thus wondered, as it's so fun to have the rare opportunity to speak with people).

    In any event, here's to your son's special day! How very fantastic!!!!!!

    Cheers! - Leah

    My, this post inspires me. If there is anything better than cooking for family, it is cooking for family on a joyous occasion. The pork looks terrific (thanks for the qview). Everyone will love it and you will remember this cook for a long time.

    I hope you find time to post more pictures, I would like to share vicariously.

  5. Well,wedding went off without a problem.

    Saturday morn now and it's the lull before the storm.

    s. Dressed with the aspic from the meat and SoFlaquer's finishing sauce.

    Also a modified version of Jeffs' BBQ sauce on the side.

    8 Chickens grilled and in the roaster to get good and tender.

    Time to sit back and grab a Grain Belt or three.

    Sorry Leah but I'm a 3rd generation scandihoovian. I understand a few words but can't converse in swedish, heck I have trouble with english sometimes, Ha.
