A co-worker of mine is fanatic over my 'Que, and approached me several weeks ago if I would be willing to cook for his church's get-together, which will be this coming Sunday. He's providing the meat, and the charcoal, whichever brand I wanted. All I'd be out is my time and my seasonings, and of course some wood. Being he's a friend and it's for his church, I agreed. I had anticipated finishing my large smoker by this time and this would be good practice run for us to work together cooking. Unfortunately, time played against us and I was unable to finish my smoker, but thanks to a connection, I am able to borrow one for this cook.
So, this Sunday morning, we're loading up and cooking all day at the church for their evening event. In all, it will be about 15 pork loins and 40 lbs of chicken. First time with the new team cooking, on a smoker I haven't used before. Fingers crossed.
