Saturday Smoke & Block Party

This Saturday was our block party so I decided to roll out the smoker. I did two pork butts, one chuck roast, two fatties, one hunk of bologna and a can of spam. I finally got to use the ProQ stacker and it was great having the extra space but I got to tell you, its a pain in the butt getting the WSM lid off the stacker, the thing is a really tight fit. The other issue I had with it is my Maverick probe didnít fit through the eyelet...argh! One of the fatties I tried rolling cream cheese in the middle and it didnít work out so well, hence the fatty, ball you see in the picture. The bologna was good and the spam was kinda strange, maybe next time Iíll try it with brown sugar. I started getting a little thirsty so I figured around 2pm I could have a pre block party beer and a shot of tequila. The party was a blast as the weather was perfect and the band was really good. Someone called the cops on us but when they showed up they couldnít do anything because the neighbor pulled a permit. Right after the cops came the fire dept arrived because one of the guests had a few too many and twisted her ankle really bad. Anyway, hope you enjoy the pictures and that last one is a BBQ chicken pizza we made for dinner Sunday night.

Everything look great Toby. I'm pretty bummed at the way the WSM lid fits on the Stacker. It's way too tight.
Looks like it was a great time.

Looks like great food and a cool party. Too bad about the injury at the end. It was good that the neighbor got the necessary permit, bad that you even needed a permit.

I think it's great that your neighborhood gets together and does that.

Looks like it was a great day Toby! We have a block party every year and never get a permit. Every year the cops try to circle the neighborhood and just turn around and don't bother us.
I hope this isn't negative!

Toby looks like yall had a good time. Food looked great too. The one that twisted her ankle wasn't from to much party juice was it.
