Busy Weekend Ahead

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
This weekend will be the test of my smoking ability. My dad retired after 38 years of military service and we are doing a big party. I am smoking two pork shoulders and about 20 pounds of chicken leg quarters. My brother @hoss103 is doing a brisket. I'm also going to throw a fatty on for lunch along with the bacon pineapple crack of @Smokin218R. Should be a great time. We are eating at 6pm so I figured if I start the pork shoulders at 6am and wrap them at 160* IT I should be good. The chicken will take about 3 hours and the brisket is on my bro.

Plan has altered slightly. My parents are the ones that bought the meat and got thighs only. I've done leg quarters before but I don't know if this will change my cooking time much. Also, the shoulders they got are over 9lbs Boston butt roasts so I'm going to start them earlier then planned. We are doing all of this down on our river property and I am going to camp out and start the pork at o dark thirty in the morning.

And we're off. Here are the picnics rubbed down.

I also made some of JJ's finishing sauce. Now it's time to sit and chill until about 2am.

Here's the setup. The green guy is my 7-in-1, the Brinkman is @hoss103 and the trailer is a charcoal grill that we are borrowing and I'll do the chicken, brats, and hotdogs on. It's a really cool setup and nobody else ever uses it so we are thinking about trying to build an offset box for it and have one huge smoker.

It's currently 8:15 and the picnics are at 163* and 151*. Smoker is bouncing between 240* and 260*. Brisket is coming along but I'll let Hoss tell his details.

Well, it was an amazing success. Final tally was 74 people including the kids. The food came out amazing and not a piece left. Of course the pulled pork was better then the brisket, but that's a given seeing who cooked what. ☺ I'm in desperate need of water today and loud noises give me a headache. I think there was some bad hops in that last beer.

Hoss has the pictures on his phone so I'll let him post up. I pulled the pork off at 2:30 pm for a total of 12 hours, let it sit wrapped in a cooler until 5:30, and the only thing I'd do different next time is do 4 instead of 2.
