I got 4 butts (a little over 30# before trimming) in the smoker. Put the largest butt on the bottom rack, smallest on the top, and the last two of the same size in the middle. I used TulsaJeff's pork rub (from his pulled pork recipe with coleslaw)and I will be using Fla-Jeff's finishing sauce. I am gonna make Jeff's coleslaw and a couple bottles of his smokey BBQ sauce, both from the same recipe page above.

I rubbed the butts last night, first with mustard and then Jeff's spicy rub. I didn't have alot of cellophane, so I stuffed each butt in a gallon ziplock bag. All but (or butt) one fit nicely - the last one required a second bag and wouldn't seal. Worked nicely!

Can't wait to see which on wins the cute butt contest. They look so good. I hope this all comes together for you and the finished product is great.
 
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!
Delightful, simply delightful!

Might I guess that this treat is for your fellow heroes? Good going and best of luck and God Bless You All!

Cheers!
 
Thank you!

We have a softball game tomorrow, between my firehouse and a neighboring house. I got the food! They got the easy part - drinks! Gonna pick up some fresh rolls tomorrow from the bakery.

Brought the butts inside and they are in the oven and foiled. Biggest butt is almost 160°, and a smaller one is about 165°. Only a couple hours left to go. Can't wait till tomorrow!
 
Don't have to be at work untill 4:00 tomorrow, can make it to N.Y. in no time. Should I bring anything? Damn they look good. Thanks for the porn, This way I know what the really good stuff should look like.
 
Just finished pulling the first two butts. Another two resting - to be pulled shortly. Here's some porn!

Update: Almost 2am and just wrapping up. Longer than expected, but seems it always is. It's well worth it though! BTW, I used hickory & cherry chunks for smoke.
