    Hello all,

    Here is what I have going down within the next 48 hours. I'm throwing a bday party for my son. I have about 60 people showing up. 40 adults, 20 kids.

    Here is my menu....

    6 Pork Butts ranging from 3.5-5 lbs. Already rubbed and in frig. Pork will be PULLED!

    9 Slabs of pork spare ribs

    Rib tips from trimming up spare ribs.

    4 - Whole Chickens injected and rubbed

    12 Chicken thighs injected and rubbed

    14 lbs of kielbasa (two different kinds from Polish market)

    The party is Saturday night. I plan on smoking pork butts and chickens tomorrow (Friday). I will do ribs and kielbasa on Saturday.

    Here are the side dishes.....

    Dutches Wicked Baked Beans

    Corn on cob

    Potato Salad


    Grilled mushrooms, peppers, onions, eggplant

    Fruit salad

    I will start posting Q-Views very early tomorrow (6am PT). 

    This will be by far the largest smoke I've attempted. 

    Any help would be great.

    Wow, what a project!!  Earlier this year i did 12 racks of St. Louis Ribs for a neighbor's graduation for his daughter.  What i did with those is to prepare them the day before.  Got them almost done except for the final hour for mopping.  After i got them where i wanted i foiled them and let them cool off and put them in a fridge. Then the next day i timed it [or tried] to start mopping as the crowd came. This way they got to see them at their best and then served them a hour or so after they arrived.  It was a learning experience for sure, but it worked out somehow. Reinhard

    Update: Looking pretty good so far. Smoker is holding temps good right at 220 or so. I've been spraying butts with apple juice everyone 1/2 hour or so. The smaller butts on top have a temp inside of 165.
