Prepping for a KC Royals tailgate

This past weekend I fired up the smoker to cook pork butts for a K.C. Royals tailgate party my wife and I throw each year. It keeps getting bigger and bigger. This year we have 85 folks joining us for the tailgate and 78 going into the game!!! It's a lot of fun.

Knowing I was going to fire up the smoker I took some "orders" from friends to smoke something for them. I love cooking for people, but I am always glad when it's done and everything is cleaned up.

Here are pics of the cook.

The wife took a pic of me as I was getting started. I was cutting the fat cap off the butts to use in the beans. I rub the fat cap with the same rub and smoke them. When I wrap the butts, the fat caps get wrapped in foil and into the freezer until I make the beans! Yummy!



Added a few pass throughs for the probes before firing up the smoker. Beats ruining the probe wire shutting the door on it.


Ready to wrap!

Baby backs and St Louis Spares


Chicken Lollipops

Ribs ready to wrap

First butt pulled.

Chops done

lollipops done

Brisket done, point removed and burnt ends back in smoker

Flat sliced! Juicy and tender...almost too tender, but managed to keep it together for slicing.


We'll serve pp sammies, dogs and brats. Along with beans, pasta salad and chips. To wash it all down we'll have a couple kegs of beer and several cases of water. I'll post pics shortly after the event is over.

Nick, don't forget to add a tablespoon of unsalted butter in each hole. After they've cooked for a few hours, take them out of the tin and set on the rack to cook a bit longer to dry out the skin. You can also sauce them at that time too.
