Pulled Pork for my Wedding

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm catering my own wedding. I will cook the Pork on a BBQ trailer three days prior to the wedding, then freeze it, then thaw (add JJ's finishing sauce) and serve with BBQ sauce on the side. My question is, should I use Pork butt or save some money and buy Pork cushion? The difference in cost isn't huge per pound, but when you're cooking for 200 people every little bit helps.

Congrats to You and your Bride. Three days out you really don't need to freeze, but if you have a system you use, stick to it. Lots to worry about the last days before the Wedding. Cushion is much Leaner and for my taste drier than a Pulled Butt. I use Cushion and Picnic for that matter, for Slice Pork like my MIL made for my Wife. I have made Pulled Pork with it but only if on sale for a great price.

Hopefully you only get married once.

 

I'd go for the butt. Make the PP something everyone will remember!

I havent smoked anything yet. But when we cook pig for a luau we use pork butt because of the fat. It stays really moist.

Just saw this, how did it go? I just got married last fall, chose to pay someone else to cook. Haha! Hope it went well.
