88lbs of pork is schmoking

Sent out an e-mail to some regular customers at work to see if anyone wanted pulled pork. This is gonna be my new thing, instead of asking what they want and I end up cooking 10 different things, I'm gonna cook pork one week, brisket one week, etc. I get overwhelmed around the Holidays when turkey orders come in, so this will help. I ended up getting 36 orders totaling 46lbs of pork, couple orders were received after I bought the pork, so I hope I end up with a better than normal 50% yield or I'll be cooking more butts this weekend.

Got these butts from Wegmans for $.99lb and the biggest butt was 9.34lbs and the smallest was 8.38lbs, so they were pretty good size. The biggest ones go on the bottom and the smaller ones were squeezed on the top. I've done 10 butts on 2 WSM's before, but never had 10 BIG butts.


2 butts on each bottom grate


3 butts on each top grate BARELY


They're chugging away.....won't be long!

Go Larry go. You need a 22.5" WSM for occasions such as this.
