Here we go......

This time of the year gets very busy for me BBQ wise, so I'm juggling a new VERY BUSY INTENSE job with my side BBQ biz..... Over the past month I've cooked 3 cases of butts on 2 WSMs (1 case will fit on 2 WSMs at a time) so I'm getting porked out, but people keep buying it so who am I to complain. I got a couple more orders and didn't have the time to do a full case, so here's 4 butts I put on last night around 5:30pm. They cruised overnight with a slight breeze with temps in the mid 30's. They're sitting at 154*...........when they're done I'm throwing some fatties on. Everything will be vacuum sealed, frozen and delivered Monday morning.

I should start a side bbq business too...the folks at the freight company are always asking if I cooked something over the weekend in anticipation of left-overs!

Do you cook butts on the Primo as well, Larry or not so much?

I have Greg, but I sold my XL a while back and only 2 will fit on the Jr. But the Jr is out of commission right now with a fried gasket.....

Larry.

Do you go ahead and pull those butts before you vac seal them ?

Do you pack them in larger bags when people order larger quantities ?

One more question :

Are you smoking fresh turkey which I cannot find around here or the $10 turkeys that all the grocery stores have this time of the year only ?

I pull, season, chill, vacuum and freeze.

I sell in 2lb increments, normally 2lb bags which is as big as I like to go. I have some people that live alone or a husband and wife who request 2-1lb bags because they can't eat 2lbs at a time.

Fresh brined turkeys. I have substituted the pumped frozen birds birds on occassion.......they turn out great, but still not as good as a fresh brined bird.

Butts are done and the fatties are on. 4 Maple Fatties rubbed with Wolfe Rub Original and 3 Hot Fatties rubbed with Wolfe Rub Bold.

Larry, first, nice to see you back! Second, how many butts do you anticipate you can fit on the new, larger WSM thats coming out? That might be a great answer to your cooking needs!
