Alittle smoke for nephews graduation party last weekend

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
11 boston butts. 70+ pounds worth!,
the most that has been on my smoker at one time----she was full!!!!!!! I dont believe i could've put a hamburger on there!
Smaller ones came off in a little over 10 hours, the biggest was on 13 hours. Twas good eats. fed about 40+ people and still had plenty. Everyone raved on the flavor (it did turn out to be my best smoke yet!). A few ladies wanted the recipe, then when i told them the first ingredient was 13 hours, they said never mind! But it was sooooo good! Served up with a big ole pot of Dutch's baked beans-it don't get no better than that! Here's the pic after only about 7 hours, i would have taken the finished pic, but it was dark-thirty when they were done

Wow Lightfoot.
A "little" smoke, huh? Those things look mighty fine, excellent looking grub.
You have one lucky nephew.

awesome looking load of pork Lightfoot. Nice looking smoker too! Butts love company, and always taste better when you do at least 6-8 at a time!

Is that a reverse flow rig?? Looks like from the picture that the firebox is on the lower left. Good looking load of butts!

yes, it is a reverse flow. built it last fall with some help from a friend and his welder. It's made from two air compressor tanks.PDT_Armataz_01_22.gif

And it cooks like a dream. I think i need a bigger one! (i've actually been keeping my eye out for tanks for a bigger one).

Them beans were a huge (i mean huge) hit Dutch!!. Everytime i fix'em, i get nothing but compliments. Thanks again for the recipe. If anyone here has not fixed Dutch's beans yet-you aint lived!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just did one batch Dutch, (Three of the cafeteria sized cans)!!!
Cooked them in a big deep turkey pan-in the oven. I just adjusted your recipe to fit the amount of beans i had. I wish i had room to put them on the smoker, cause i do like that smoke flavor in them,(thus-the need for a bigger smoker) but i had about a pound of chopped pulled pork from the last smoke that i put in the beans. Trust me, there were no complaints!!! YOU DA MAN!
Points to you on the beans again!

thanks again,

Thanks. I cooked the chickens on it last weekend and they were great. I will be doing some ribs and maybe some sausage tomorrow. I'll post pictures.

Man that looks like a BIG fire box for that size tank. I bet you could get a larger upper tank and still be in good shape. I am trying to do some work on my reverse flow now. Want to put a better suspension underneath it and redo the work shelf / cutting board on the side. I'll send some pics when it is finished. Thanks again!
