Well, the only picture I have is of my WSM loaded before smoking. Between running my smoker, my father-in-laws brinkmann (pain in my....), and putting one butt on the weber grill to smoke, I was awfully busy. Combine that with family being around and grandparents stopping out, photos just weren't an option.
I ended up starting with two butts on Thursday morning, 16 pounds raw weight which ended up with 11 pounds of cooked weight. Smoker ran great! We also did two small pork loins, two racks of spare ribs (and tips), and some salmon cuts! Everything turned out well, I was less than impressed with my ribs. Ugly pale color, flavor was good. One rack was done, one could have stayed on a bit longer.
On Friday afternoon, I ran and picked up 5 bags of charcoal and 107 pounds (13 butts) of pork. Seasoned, wrapped, and placed in my fridge. Well, a couple were placed in my fridge, the others received a truck ride to the in-laws to use some of their extra room!
I started about 8 AM on Saturday morning! Butts were on my smoker (WSM) by 8:30, the Brinkmann by 9. As usual, the WSM ran flawlessly, which I fought and struggled with the brinkmann. After four hours of it, we wrapped the four that were on that smoker and placed them in the oven to finish. It wasn't worth the hastle, the large temp swings, and the constant monitoring.
About noon, my wife said that I should "try" to do one on the Weber grill, indirect. Well, it worked great and left me with only four raw butts left to cook (4 in my WSM, 4 in the oven, and 1 on the weber). After getting all of them finished, we had a pulling party, which was very helpful!
About 8:30 that night I placed the other four butts on my WSM for an overnighter. I checked the smoker at 11:00 PM, running a solid 250! Perfect, time for sleep, right?
Well, just to make sure, I set my alarm for 1:30 AM. I woke up fine, checked the smoker, still rocking 250! Awesome, everything is going right! I reset my alarm for 5:30 to be up for the day. I took a little snooze, got up with that alarm and the smoker was dwindling down to 220. So, I added a few more coals, brought it back to 250 - 260, and let it sail.
About 11:00 AM, we pulled them off, rested them until 1:00 PM, and pulled. I think we ended up with right at 80 pounds of pulled pork finished weight, which is what they wanted. I ran through 5 bags of charcoal, ate through all the apple wood that I had cut, and finished most of the adult beverages that we had on ice for the weekend.
I snuck in a little nap yesterday afternoon, but not long enough! I got paid for supplies plus a little bit (I still don't know how to charge, I'm not an entity, and I'm not insured), so I wasn't worried about it.
We have also decided to change a fuel barrel that is at my acreage into a smoker. Hoping to start that here in the next month or so!
Sorry for the lack of qview - we were swamped!
