Thread Starter 

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.
