I felt like such a slut

You know. You meet someone. Get paid for services rendered. So slutty. Here's the food porn pics of what I did.




Basically, a 12.5 hour BBQ on my WSM at around 275 degrees for a few hours and then 225 for several hard-fought windy hours. The snow at the beginning was fun, but the wind all day wasn't. The lump charcoal and finding a little wind shelter helped. Mostly in the 30's all that day not counting 30 mph gusts. I started with 19 lbs and ended up with 13. I divided this into 3 food saver bags and froze for a week. I handed them over. They were warmed on a grill in aluminum pans and put in a chafing dish for 30 people to make sandwhiches out of. Only one sandwhich was left over.

If I had it to do over, I would have read the weather crystal ball and done it the following Saturday where the weather was sunny with no wind and in the 50's. I coulda used one of them tornado-proof 55 gallon wind breakers in this mess. It turned out well and that's all you can ask for.

Good job!

Thanks Ron. Actually, this was for my boss and his friends. Last year, I lost a dumb bet that the Rams weren't as bad as they actually were. So I made him two butts instead of chili. His friends tore it up. This year, he offered to pay for it. He had lots of other good food. I think 10 gallons of Jumbalya, brats and this. I just handed it to him. I didn't get feedback until the next day. So I was wondering if he'd like it or not. I changed a few things over the year. He gave out some of my business cards, so that was nice. If it had been bad, they would have put him on the grill. Naw, he would have likely disowned knowing me. I think that's what he would have done. Anyways, it was fun and challenging. I think my next gig will be doing ribs and chicken for another co-worker.

Well Eric..mighty proud of you sir. Got a feeling you served them folks up some pushed pork that was a grand prize winner. High Fives and manly man hiney slaps all around. Not sure how much the boss man coughed up of course but will wager you earned every red cent. Put all the stress and worry about it into the equation. That cost a person a coupla hundred bucks per half hour down at the local psychotic place. You was underpaid however much you got my friend.
