Here is a quick update.
There is a total of 52 pounds of meat in the smoker
I started the smoker at 6:50am it's now 7:12pm. I suspect I will be wrapping up around 2:00am.
The butt's just went into foil, total time sofar is about 11 hours at 165.
The reason it took a while, is that I was sneaking pans of beans in and out. 30 quarts of beans smoked in six pans.
Tri-tip just went in. These will cook pretty fast in comparison. I figure 6 hours to 165, then rest, then slice.
BBq sauce is done, pork wash is done.
Salad is good to go, bought in pre-made packs its sitting in the fridge. We will spruce it up with some veggies tomorrow.
I took a lot of pic's sofar and look forward to posting them as soon as the event is over.
