Ask her if she has ever seen "Fried Green Tomato's"......when she says 'Yes", tell her not to mess with the barbeque man.

Ok here's the deal.The director let me pull it and put in crock pots to serve.We had 2 very large crock pots (commercial) A total of 49 people showed up.I told the director, how much time and effort I had put into this (free) BBQ, and thank the BBQ god's, she saw it my way. I laid out the buffet,about one hour before hand and had everything ready. The crowd showed up about 30 min later,and my wife and I left. My wife has a phobia about crowds, so we didn't stay.We had bought sonny's bbq sauce (sweet) for people who wanted it. Anyway,we went home. About 7:00 pm we get a knock at the door.It's the director,with some left over macaroni salad, and BB. She handed my wife $50 and said the bbq was a hit with everyone! We tried to give the money back,but she would not take it.We tried to explain that, It was a labor of love and not for profit. Oh well, the neighbors are still telling me how much they enjoyed it,and cant wait for the next one.Thats the best pay of all. Oh well, Thanksgiving is coming,and these crackers havent had any fried turkey yet. This cracker has. Its gonna be fun. Stay tuned. Peace,Love and smoke.

Sounds like a good Idea! How long do you smoke it for? 1-2 hours maybe?

 If already chopped, you can reheat it in a roaster pan in the oven for a couple hours at 250*, stirring occasionally.  Crockpots also work well if doing it somewhere an oven is not available.  Boston butt is very forgiving and freezes / reheats well.
