Been lurking around for about a year now and with this sites help I have become pretty good at Pulled pork, Fatties, ribs. So much so, that my parents have requested I smoke pulled pork and some fatties for my Dad's 50 birthday party. This will the first time I have cooked for more then 5 people.
Ok so thinking about 35-40 people.
People should start arriving about 2 or 3 for food. Party goes all night.
My parents house is about 45 min. drive from my house.
Working with a 22.5 wsm.
I am thinking about 4 shoulders (2 of the packages from Sam's about 30lbs.) that way I can use a couple different rubs to give some variety.
I am going to make up some Dutch Beans. How much should I plan on making?
Everyone loves fatties, I am planning on making up a couple different flavors. How many? Flavors?
My parents will also have some slaw and perhaps some snack stuff already made.
The party is on Saturday and I have taken the Friday before off to prepare. Some questions are.
Should I smoke the pork on Friday and just re heat it the next day? If so how? Will the que suffer from being re-heated?
I was thinking I could then throw the fatties and beans on the smoker Saturday morning and wrap them up when they are done.
I know there are people with more experience with this size of a group then me and so I guess I'm asking, How would you do it?
