pulled pork for DIY bike mechanics

During a break on our ride back from the Finger Lakes (NY) Rally 2 weeks ago, our friend Jerry said, "I'm planning on hosting a tech day in a couple of weeks," and Jody said, "John can fix barbecue!"

I got 2 2-packs of boneless butts from Costco mid-week, 27+ lbs. (I'd much rather do bone-in, but nobody could come close to Costco's 1.49/lb price. And they didn't have bone-in. Fortunately, I have a spool of butcher twine.) I didn't know exactly how many eaters would be there, but it looked like at least a dozen and maybe as many as 20. Friday night I rubbed with Southern Succor (a pepper-heavy recipe from Smoke & Spice, my old favorite for butts),


then Saturday a.m. started a full charcoal ring using the Minion Method, and put 3 butts on at 9 a.m.


The WSM behaved itself well all day, but I needed to add coals twice, about 7 p.m. and about 11:30 p.m.


Everything was out of the smoker by 1 a.m., pulled and bagged by 1:45.

I guessed the raw weight at ~22 lbs; pulled weight was 11.5 lbs. Come morning I found that one of the FoodSaver bags wasn't sealed as tight as it appeared, but it didn't leak when reheating in boiling water. Gotta remember: Seal twice. (Griff told me that, but I got anxious to go to bed.)


Ya know, I never did count the crowd, but there weren't many more than a dozen. They loved the Q. Everybody came back for seconds, some for more than that. My reputation is golden.

(Is it catering when you provide the meat and don't get paid? If so, this was my first gig. )

Looking at pics on the bike board, I'm guessing 16 or 17. My memory is no longer good enough to examine the replay frame-by-frame.
