The wind in my sails. Pain in my Butts.

  1. Ohh boy.

    I got 32 lb of butts on the smoker and even with plastic around the shed I'm fighting to keep this gasser at temp. 20 to 30 mph gust. Seems like every time I do a sizable cook its windy.

    Ill post some qview in a bit. I have my work cut out for me today.

    Yeah, that wind is pretty stiff today, even 30 miles north of you. Don't let that plastic stick to your smoker. Good luck with all that pork, Joe.

    Hope all turns out well for you.

    Those are some lucky folks to have you smoking butts for them.

    I'm sure they will appreciate your effort!

  8. Thank you Al,

    I'm not sure they were lucky, but we did our best. The butts went on at 2:00 pm Saturday, and the last came off at 9:30 pm Sunday. Each was pulled at a 195-200 F IT. Each wrapped in foil, and placed in cooler to rest. I have no pics of the finished product due to near death exhaustion. It was a long weekend between the two events, and the loss of the member of our little family.

    It was a family effort. 

    It all was worth it when we received a thank you card in the mail today from them for our efforts.

    Sanjuana, and I strive to show Ian and Alysia that community matters, and that a community is measured upon how it cares for those who depend on those of us that can help.

    What is one day of our service doing to uplift those around us?
