Wow great looking slice of Kitchen heaven right there, if I could back up 50+ years I would have liked being a chef I do believe.

So over this past Christmas, we smoked a ton of meat in 4 sessions. Each session being 500 pounds.

That math was around 130 Boston butts and 80 prime briskets -

I sourced prime briskets from a few Costcos around the area for a great price - $3.29 a pound I think..

Boston Butts - ordered them through my food service for around a buck a pound for Smithfield.

For Rub, and simplification, I use and really like Cookshack products.

The Cookshack smoker is built in and holds 500 pounds of meat on 15 racks.

For pellets, I like a blend of Mesquite and fruitwood.

Anywhere from 20-22 hours later, the doors will open again for the first time. I don't wrap them anymore halfway through or do anything to any of it. Just let it go and it turns out perfect. So the routine is that I put them in the smoker around 7 PM and open the doors around 5 PM the next day.

Just incredible! If you don’t mind my asking, who was this meat all for?
