20 Butt cook is finally over

Here they are.....The last six of twenty butts that I have been smoking on with a uds and an 18" wsm for the last two days.





I started the first 10 on Tue at 9AM. They were all off the smokers by 4AM on Wed morning. I coolered them and rested for two...no....more like 1 hour and 15 min.

Then it was time to burn off the grates with the gas grill. That was interesting with all those pork butt fat footprints. By 6AM I was cleaning out the ash and scooping drippings from the bottom of the uds and cleaning out and reassembling the wsm.

I managed to prep, rub and start smoking 4 butts on the wsm while I took the kids to school. by 9AM I was rubbinng the other 6 butts. Finally at 10AM I had two somewhat lukewarm smokers running.

I had to put a wind break up and then the temps began to rise good. The uds had six of the ten done in about 8 hours which suprised me because the temps never seemed to get above 270. The wsm on the other hand was running about the same temps but the internal temps were running 40 deg behind. Go figure.

I pulled the last foiled butt at around 9PM on Wed night.







I still have to vac seal the remaining 6 butts into 3lb packages.

Here is what I want to know :

Who in thier right mind would ever want to open a bbq resturant ? You would have to be some kind of a crazy machine.

I don't care if I see another pork butt for AT LEAST two weeks.

It's all just a blur now. I had a dream that pulled pork was falling from the sky though.
