Cookin' 1600 Lbs. of Boston Butts Tomorrow

at church for a fundraiser. It's much harder than the work I usually do. I started doing it 15 years ago when I was one of the younger guys and we had 25 guys showing up. I'm still one of the younger guys and we have only 5 or 6 guys showing up since membership has dropped-mostly due to death.
I know we'll be eating liver mush, egg, cheese, and tomato biscuits early and food from Price's Chicken Coop for lunch so it's something to look forward to.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

Re: Cookin' 1600 Lbs. of Boston Butts Tomorrow

That's like what ? 170 butts ?

How are you going to manage that and what are you cooking them on ?

I bet you will be able to smell those butts cooking all over Charlotte.

"Liver mush" and "tomato biscuits"? Must be a Southern thing. Good luck to you and the fundraiser.

Re: Cookin' 1600 Lbs. of Boston Butts Tomorrow

The cook went really well. It was the best day ever temperature/wind wise and we had a few extra guys show up. BTW, we also cooked 45 gallons of sauce and 15 gallons of Brunswick stew. We use 3 double cookers made by one of the guys who helps us. We have cooked 2000 lbs. on them before so 1600 lbs. didn't fill the cookers. The guy who built the cookers was a welder/fabricator for Duke Power and knows his stuff. He makes a smaller cooker that cooks 8 large butts that I would have bought if I didn't want a pure smoker.
Lew-it's liver mush (thick cut & fried crisp) with a fried egg, cheese, tomato, mayo, and mustard on a BIG biscuit. It's sold at the Texaco mini mart right down the road. Their biggest seller is a bologna and cheese biscuit. I guess it is a Southern thing.
Nick-My 16 yr. old son and I have at least 15 film cameras but only one digital camera. That's his camera and I know what the body and lenses cost so I don't touch it. I need to get a cheap digital.
