    I just realized that I said what I was going to cook in this thread: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=1709 but never got around to posting the results. :oops:

    [​IMG][​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'll tell you, it was a lot of work shared by my wife, BIL & SIL. It took me two nights of sleep to recover from this cook. :) I guess I was still fired up when I went to bed because I couldn't go to sleep, I couldn't stay asleep, and I woke up early....so I was tired all day Sunday. SLEPT GOOD That night though. :lol:

    The pictures are in chronological order and this is what we cooked:
    7 bone prime rib roast
    23 pound beef shoulder clod
    12 pound brisket
    6 racks pork spare ribs
    4 racks beef ribs
    2 boneless pork picnics that were halved
    7 pound pork shoulder butt
    2 whole chickens BCC style
    2 fatties
    15 bratwurst
    a pot of Great Northern beans & onions
    a pan of "The Best Beans on the Planet"
    salmon fillet
    3 pounds of bacon
    24 stuffed jalapenos
    9 twice baked potatoes
    4 sweet potatoes

    We counted about 125 pounds of meat in all. 8)

    Sadly :cry: I didn't get any pictures of the completed prime rib. It was good but WAY overcooked. :cry: We had planned on eating it Saturday for dinner...BUT...no one was hungry. So we took it to Sunday's dinner and it got a little warm in the oven while we were at church.

    We snacked on a rack of beef ribs Saturday and the were without a doubt, absolutely the best beef ribs I've ever eaten :D :D :D The rub my brother-in-law used was a little saltier that I use but the salt tasted good on the beef.

    I know there are a lot of pictures but I was under orders by a good friend to take a lot! :lol:

    What a phenomenal spread that was, Bob!! I'm really impressed with the way that standing rib roast turned out. Too bad it got overdone, but that's the way my wife likes it. Any chance of you sharing the BIL's rub recipe? :D

    Sorry Dutch, my BIL used a store bought rub. I can give him a call if you like.

    The prime rib was still wonderful but way overdone than it should be. We ate on it for days. :)

    The beef ribs were brought by my BIL and were packaged separately. MAN! They were good. :D

    Much of the meat is now vacuum sealed and frozen. We had some of the pulled pork 2 nights ago. First time I've ever seen a pulled pork sandwich topped with mac&cheese and baked beans all in the same bun. :lol:

    Very generous offer Buzzard! 8) Very OTBS of you.
  13. Every time I tried to look at the pics, my eyes teared up! Sniff!!! That was a beautiful sight, Bob!!!!

    ashton, i shold be able to hold it a little while i have a storage unit i keep and i think there should be plenty of room in it. i just dont want to see this go to waste, and see it go to someone who appriciates this fine art. it does need a little cleaning but its in solid over all shape.

    Those beans are excellent. Here's a link for the beans.

    I would prefer them a little less sweet (less brown sugar) and a little more spicy (my wife used 3 jalapenos, I think 6 would have been better).

    You can use brisket or pulled pork, whichever is on hand.

    And since I don't care for kidney beans (my dad always comapred them to eating waterbugs when we were young :roll: ) we used red beans instead.

    Thanks for the link Bob. Those are some eye appealing beans. I got about 3 different bean recipes I want to try so I better get with it. :shock:

    Great!! I have a friend in Allen that I pretty sure I can get to meet up with you and get it out of your way if you need.

    I appreciate this a great deal!
  19. Man o man what a spread that is.........i'm so jealous it all looks so good....especially when i compare it to what comes from my smoker which looks like old leather. I'm sure hoping to learn from all the great folks here. Keep up the good no great work
