    I have a family Reunion coming up in a couple of weekends. I asked how to best cook this ahead of time on a previous thread, thanks for all the great advice.  Yesterday I cooked the butts and as suggested, pulled, bagged and froze.  Here are the pics of the day's work,


    I used Jeff's rub the day before and let rest in the Fridge overnight.


    After a night in the Fridge and ready for the Q.  Plan is to take off heat at 165* and wrap in Aluminum foil, leave on until 200-205 Internal Temp.  Let rest in cooler wrapped with Towels for at least 2 hours, pull around 190*.


    This is right after spending a little over 2 hours in the cooler and removing foil.  Temp remained up while in cooler, 192* when I removed foil. The one on left fell apart as I took the foil off as you can see.


    I applied a modified version of SoFla's Finishing Sauce and pulled.  Placed in 3 lb double zip lock bags and placed in Freezer.  I will take freezer bags out a couple days before the event and reheat in simmering water as suggested.  Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a great day!

    Thanks all for the positive feedback.  I sneaked a bit for lunch yesterday and it was pretty darn good. I will make Jeff's BBQ sauce and a cole slaw recipe I found here the day before the event.  I"ll do a test run this weekend, my wife is going out of town and I have my childhood friends coming up for Golf, Beer and BBQ.  Should be fun.  I will do the Santa Maria Style Tri Tips on Saturday night, I'll post the pics.

    Thanks again and have a great week.

    Thank you all again for positive feed back.  I did a test run this weekend on the re-heat and everything went exceptionally well - very moist and tasted as if I just smoked it that day.  I will most certainly smoke extra PP from now on and will keep some in the freezer for quick dinners.

    Thank you Admin for placing the pics on the banner, quite an honor!
