Great job Cliff! I do a similar cook for our firemans fair. I was doing 6 picnics per smoke, 4 cooks in total 2 months before the fair. It is a lot of work when it's time to do the pulling and shrink wrapping. I hope the function was a sucsess.

I hope this isn't negative!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that the function and the bbq was a great success.

95 lbs of vac pac butts made 45 lbs of finished pulled pork.

I foodsavered 3lb portions and reheated in a microwave. This is not the prefered method but last year it worked out good and this year was no different.

Each bag took a total of 6 minutes to heat. After 3 min I would knead the unopened bag of meat. After six min the bag would have to be handled with gloves cuz it was very hot. Cut open and served immediatley made for some very moist bbq.

As the pan ran low I would zap another bag. I carried 15 3lb bags with me and came home with 0 bags.

6 lbs of slaw went away also.
