5 Boston butts

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well I've really gone and done it now. My unit is having a safety stand down/ BBQ tomorrow and guess who got volunteered to smoke?! We took up donations and the commissary happened to have butts for $1.93/lb so we got 5.

Only problem is the lid on the chargriller won't close with all five on there. Luckily a contractor buddy has a Bradley electric smoker that he let me borrow. So I'll do 3 in one and 2 in the other. Gonna be a long night.

That's the way to do it...


Put them in and forget about them till temp. time :yahoo:



Have fun and . . .

My main issue is I have the chargriller duo, so the CC isn't that big. Once I modify my other grill into a reverse flow, I'll be able to do ten butts with room to spare.

Sounds like a fun night.

I hate to even mention this, but....... You know you can get the smoke rolling and then finish them in the oven. If it gets too much of a hassle Gunny.


Just a thought.

That's exactly what I intend to do. Smoke about 6 hours and then for another 6 or so into the oven. But they don't need to know that...

Everyone loved the meat.

This is what's left out of all 5.

That looks great Gunny. Sure looks strange to me seeing women in camo though. I am sure its a better service for them being there though.


Ya know I would hate to have to guess how many to cook to feed a bunch of Marines (that wasn't my first choice of names,........ ROFL).


Great job, nothing greater than seeing a bunch of smiling Marines. You know you are no longer in trouble.

They were quite happy. Usually their interaction with me consists of them getting yelled at for something.

For these days, you got a good price in my area.


When I get the desired amount of smoke on them, I am not too proud to put them in the oven and get some rack time.


I don't have to tell you?


Keep yelling at them!


You are saving lives!


Good luck and good smoking.
