    Reheat Pulled Pork for 20, at a Park

    We run a concession trailer and I will smoke 20 or 30 butts at a time.  I end up with over 100lbs of pulled meat and vacum pack it at 2lbs per package.  I reheat it just like they said in boiling water then put it in a warming pan and it works great.  You could use one off those warming pans...

    Pulled Pork Success - Kind of.

    Well I finished my Boston Butt smoke and they came out fine.  There was no problem with them tasting bland this time.  It may have been the rub or it may have been the wood chips because this time I had a lot of TBS. However, I had somehing happen this time that has never happened before. ...

    Screwed Up My Pulled Pork

    Here's a little more info.  I use 3 GOSM Gassers.  They are the large 24" ones and I can do about 10 butts at a time that weigh 6 to 8lbs in each smoker.  I used hickory chips and preheated to 225*  I ran the smoker between 225 and 250* for about 10 hrs.  After I put them in I spritzed every...

    Screwed Up My Pulled Pork

    My last batch of Pulled Pork had the flavor of day old cardboard and I think I know why.  When I got ready to smoke I found I was almost out of rub and the ingredients to make any more.  The store is 30 miles away so I went ahead and smoked 6 butts with almost no rub on them.  They looked great...

    Using a finishing sauce.

    I'm talking about the Vinegar based, not the BBQ sauce.  The BBQ sauce is put on when we serve it.  We operate a couple of concession trailers and serve pulled pork sandwiches.  I smoke it up ahead of time and vacum pack it in 2.5 lbs pks and freeze it.  We then put it in counter top warmers...

    Anyone do Overnight Smokes?

    My overnighter went well. I put the 3 8 lb butts on at 8:00pm and spritzed them with 1/2 apple juice 1/2 rum every hour till midnight. No problem holding 250* temp on my GOSM gasser. Crashed a little after midnight and got up at 7:30am. The internals on all 3 were between 160 and 165 so I foiled...

    Can't remember

    I haven't smoked for several months so I'll ask a dumb question. I put on 3 Boston Butts, each 8b lbs. I know I want the internal at 200* when I pull them but I forgot where I should have the smoker set. Should it be about 225* or higher. Thanks.

    Don't Laugh, I'm Serious, I need help !!!

    First, I want to thank everyone for their replies and especially the spreadsheet. I'm sure you put a lot of work into it. Second, I did a trial run today and have decided to scrap the lunch project and just stay with our weekend concession trailer. Here's why. Got up at 6:00am and had 6...

    Don't Laugh, I'm Serious, I need help !!!

    You are right !!! We have to watch the food cost. So far it has been easy with our trailer because all we've sold is hot dogs, nachos, slushees, and things that have a fixed cost. It is easy to put a pencil to a hot dog, a bun, a bag of nachos and things like that but getting into preparing...

    Don't Laugh, I'm Serious, I need help !!!

    Great idea. Sometimes I can't see the forest for the trees. Tomorrow I'm gonna buy 2 and try it. I'll fix one like meowey recomends and the other with no spray and no foil to see what happens. If the no spray/foil doesn't work at least my 2 cattle dogs will love me. Thanks again. Mike S.

    Overnight Smoke ???

    As mentioned in another post, I may be smoking several butts on a regular basis. In the past I have used meowey's basic butt instructions along with SoFlaQuer's sauce and they always come out great so thanks to both. However, I wonder how important it is to spray the apple juice/rum mix and...

    Don't Laugh, I'm Serious, I need help !!!

    We would be serving a combo for $4.00 which would be sandwich, bag of chips, pickle spear and a soft drink. I read somewhere on here that smoking a butt will shrink it about 50% but I don't know if that is correct or not. If so, I would need 50 lbs of butts for 100 1/4lb sandwichs and that...
