And now for the rest of the story......
Was feedin' about 36 people. The shower was at 1:00 today so I had to do all the coking yesterday. I recruited a young helper after he got out of school and he stepped and fetched what ever I needed.
Lit the 1st Chimney at 7:00am on the nose. Meat went on at 8:00am. That was 4 butts with an average weight of 10lbs. 1 butt was a bit smaller, 2 were over 11lbs each. Got started on the beans and slaw around noon. The beans went on at about 2:00pm.
Smoked a couple hotdogs wraped in bacon for a little snack. After the beans came off. I put on 2 pizza's nothing fancy, some Digorno's. The dogs and the pizza were great!!!
Foiled the butts at about 170* Pulled from smoker at 195* and into the cooler. Pulled them an hour later. Then back to the smoker with the pork in alum. pans. Wanted to add some more of that god smoke flavor to it.
An hour later all was done.
Total time was 18hrs of smoking/cooking. Start at 7am finish at 1am.
Average smoking temp was 233*
Not bad since it was sleeting for half the day and the outside temp was at or below freezing most of the day.
Ok here is the Q-view.
The set up was done like this ahead of time due to forecast.
The butts before..
Fridge full of butts...
Around the 3hour mark...
The rest to follow in next post....
