    So I started prepping for the Party tomorrow the original menu was supposed to be Babybacks but when I got to Cash-n-Carry they only had 4 cryo's of some of the sorriest BB's I have ever seen and they definitely weren't worth 3.19/lb. They did have a pile of St. Louis Spares for 2.37/lb.. Kind of a no brainer there for me.

    I am trying to get more pics of the whole process rather than just finished product. So here we go...


    Now that right there is a beautiful Pile O' Pork


    BBQ in our house is a family affair


    Gratuitous promo shot for my rub supplier.. Big Ron's Rubs ROCK!!!


    Half 6 racks done in Hint of Houston 6 in Original.
     
  2. looks like you are off to a great start. love the shots of the whole process.

    That'll make for some serious eatin' tomorrow! You must be expecting a big crowd to be smoking 12 racks.

    Getting ready to make up a batch of sauce.... Recipe was posted a bit ago I added a 1/4t of Ground Chipotle and dropped the Maple Syrup.



    Only thing missing from the pic is the onions and the butter as they were currently in the pan already.


    Shot of the dry ingredients prior to going in the pan..

    And now on to the next appetizer for tomorrow..

    Buffalo Chicken Balls (The recipe is for a double batch cut in half for normal use)


    In the bowl are 2 store bought rottisere chickens that I picked up just to make it easier on myself.

    Recipe is:

    2 Roasted Chickens (Homemade or Store Bought)
    1 1/4c Franks Red Hot Sauce
    16oz Cream Cheese
    1/4-1/2c raw yellow onion (can substitute Red or Green onions depending on preference)
    1Tbsp Smoked Paprika
    1/2tsp Ground Chipotles
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    About 12oz of Shredded Cheese(more or less to firm up balls)



    Mix all ingredients thoroughly and form into balls about the size of a golf ball. Cover with cling wrap and refridgerate overnight..

    Topping
    1c Flour seasoned with your preferred rub
    2 eggs with 1Tbsp of water beaten
    3-4c of Panko bread crumbs or Corn Flake Crumbs( I'm using corn flakes this year)

    Remove from fridge and reform into round balls.

    Do a 3 part dredge flour,egg, crumbs and place on Smoker Rack

    Smoke about 45min-1hr @ 225-250 to heat through and melt cheese.

    First 8 racks getting ready to hit the smoker... do to size limitations I'll be doing the 2 portion of 3-2-1 in the oven while the other 4 racks smoke.. going to take some coordination but I think it will turn out fine.. Now have to get the ABT's all ready to go on after that.

    Well company just left so it's time for the grand finale....

    Heres the ABT's prep'd and ready to rest in the fridge until I can get and open rack in the smoker.


    All wrapped up and headed to the fridge...


    Breading the Chicken balls then back in the fridge as well...


    All breaded and headed to the smoker.


    Ribs resting and ready to slice.. I actually only ended up with 8 racks of ribs that were decent the other 4 ended up so fall off the bone we just pulled them and tossed them in with the Shoulder that a co-worker brought.


    Pulled pork and ribs just waiting for the guests to arrive.


    ABT's fresh out of the smoker they were done just as Halftime started probably the only thing that came out of the smoker on timer today.



    I'll have some more pics once a buddy of mine sends them out to me...
