Better late then never (my party from 4/30) Pulled Pork, 3 Fattys, ABT's, Moinks, etc. - Q-VIEW

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Well it has been a crazy couple of weeks starting on my birthday (4/24) till now. I have finally gotten time to sit at a computer to put what little pictures (SORRY!) I could take. Started prepping and cooking on 4/29 at 11:00 am till 5:00 am the next day, took a nap, then woke up finally at 10:00am on 4/30 to finish prepping, cooking and enjoying my party. On with the limited show, did I already apologize for not taking enough Q-View.

 

 

The victims

Weighing in at 11.74lbs & 10.88 lbs

Sweet Paprika

Brown Sugar

Black Pepper

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder

Cinnamon

Nutmeg

Cloves

Ginger

Allspice

Chipotle

Salt

Thyme

Oregano

Trimmed off the skin and scored the fat cap as I always do (saved the skin to cook on top of the pork). Light rub for the night then another rub before cooking in the morning. Sorry only got a picture of one of the shoulders.

The next day (4/29) got the smoker going and spent this whole day prepping ABT's, Moinks, Fattys, Sweet Pork cups I saw another guy make on this site, and of course drinking beer. Here is what I got from the fatty process.

 

Provolone and spinach sauteed with garlic

Pepperoni, Red Bell Pepper, Provolone, Cheddar, and Mozzarella

Made one more but failed to get a picture, I guess that's what happens when your using your phone and working alone. The 3rd one is pizza sauce, pepperoni, and mozzarella.

 

 

Wrapped and ready to go.

After about an hour probed the meat.

Some ABT's being made. I normally split in 1/2, fill, then wrap back together but with the amount of stuff I was doing decided to just go 1/2 a JAP per ABT. Of course since I first tried ABT's with Habs I got stuck so I had to make those again, not many though, people really can't handle them, I LOVE THEM! A buddy of mine stopped by around 1am and wanted to help so I sat back for a little bit. He looks like he's making sushi.

Had a chance to catch a picture of the moinks before they were cooked

Pork out of the smoker after 14 1/2 hours, no foil, great bark, bone pulled on me while I was getting one out with the help of my friend but we didn't drop the goods. After letting it rest for an hour I looked at the clock and realized it was 5am and I should take a power nap, party starts at 1:30, no time pull so I wrapped it up and put it in the fridge and will pull it in the morning.

Well the day was here and I woke up late from staying up all night so the pictures are few and far and I couldn't believe I didn't get a $$ shot or even after pulling. Most of the time my phone was the one playing the music so here is the rest. I need to get a new camera.

 

The one with the bacon coming apart has the pizza sauce in it, I guess it tried to escape.

Pizza

Spinach, garlic and provolone (this one was probably my favorite)

 

1-slicedfatty2.jpg

 

3 cheese, pepperoni, red bell pepper

 

1-slicedfattys3.jpg

 

 

Forgot I made 100 Jello shots (always good on a nice day.

 

1-jelloshots.jpg

 

A baker friend brought some of her killer cupcakes. 2 kinds of Peanut butter and chocolate, coconut and chocolate, coconut and cream, and chocolate chip cheesecake.

 

1-cupcakes.jpg

 

 

Some moinks and pork cups (smoked sausage wrapped in bacon to form a cup filled with brown sugar chipotle powder mixture and smoked) They are really good.

 

1-moinks and cups.jpg

 

 

 

 

Other things missing from the pictures are the ABT's (they rarely make it) 2 batches of Dutch's beans, one with pineapple one with peaches. 2 Gallons of chili made with beef and some of the pulled pork. Friends brought pasta salad and stuff like that also. I had burgers and dogs but they were never needed. We also had beer pong, cornhole, horse shoes, and ladder golf or toss? Again I am sorry I didn't get the money shot or 1/2 the other Q-View I should have. The wife was having fun with the people & I was having fun cooking plus my phone was the music source most of the time which until I get some money is also my camera.

 

There will be more threads to some in the future since it's getting warm out. Now I am off to create a recipe for a local restaurant. At least they are paying me!

 

 

Thanks for watching!!

Thanks for all of the kind words. It was definitely a blast. Everyone was blown away by the amount of food I made and my grandmother's neighbor ended up booking me to cook for their grandsons graduation. I love it when people smell the food and start looking over fences. Those 2 days of cooking was my 2nd & 3rd time using the WSM 22.5 and I have to say I am pretty glad I bought it, too bad they don't make a 45. More parties to come..... th_wsmsmile0ly.gif

Cooking for my own party is tough but I like my food the best so it always seems to work out that way. Even if I go to someone else's party I end up manning the grill or smoker, I can't stay away from it, plus I like learning other people's tricks and sharing my own. My wife always laughs when we go to a cookout I end up working the grill and she says it looks like I am teaching a class because all of the other men are watching and asking questions while the girls are telling her how lucky she is. What can I say, I love to cook!

 

Scarbelly - Not running for office (can't stand politics or over controlling government) but maybe I should run under the Pork Party!

Thanks a lot everyone! I can't wait for the next party. I hate being busy every weekend, I just want to fire up the smoker and drink some cold beers. th_anim_burp.gif

That was one brilliant post!  No need for more pics the ones you showed were great and I can imagine the missed pic opportunities were only because they looked and tasted so good that there was no time to snap a pic!

Once again great post and even better work with the smoke.  Oh Happy belated birthday as well.
