Tired of the commercial buffets for holidays, we decided on doing our own after a disastrous Mother's Day. Pork shoulder was $1.78/pound, the prime brisket was $2.59/pound, and the steelhead most expensive at $6.99/pound. However, even with that, we came off better than a single person cost at the buffet.
Brisket ready to rub and rest
Into the Traeger with probes in the flat and point as well as a grill level probe at the far end
Sliced and ready to eat
Crisped up the thin part of the point - the missus just loves it this way, and I had to convince her to save some of the point for sammies
Meanwhile, pork shoulder in the SRG
I really like how quickly you can make delicious PP in the SRG in such a short time
Pork pulls like butter squishing through your fingers - makes a great impact when pulling in front of the guests that have never seen pork being pulled
... and on another cooker, steelhead (skin on) smoked with GMG fruitwood blend
Our friend Gary wanted a hoagie with pulled pork on one half, and brisket on the other. We do the PP with cheese and caramelized onion. The brisket is slathered with home made BBQ sauce
Randy wanted a plate with brisket flat slices, some of the point, and pulled pork with sides of caramelized onions and sauce - a real meat lovers plate!
