This year's total weights

Don't plan on any more major cooks this year...so here is how things shaped up compared to last year

876 lbs of Boston Butts went on the smoker for 2010, down from 1223 lb last year

557 lbs of Brisket Flats went on the smoker for 2010, up from 300 lb last year

of course, this does not include pork loins, a ton of chicken and next week's whole ribeye roasts.

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

Re: This year's total weights

I keep a list of what I put on and what I yield so I can get a cost per pound of finished product. I typically have a yield of 53% for pork and 58% for brisket flats.

So this means your butts suck and your brisket got better, by those numbers........

No, it means I cooked 600 lbs of butts for a church fundraiser in 2009 that I didn't in 2010

Re: This year's total weights

Hey Gary that's really impressive. I assume most of that was done in your Lang. How much do you use the WSM?

I use it on occasion. I use it along side the primo when I want to do a case of butts overnight. 4 on each. I need to use it more often.
