75lbs of BUTT

Got a case of pulled pork the other day totalling 75lbs (10 butts). Between thunderstorms I loaded up both WSM's with a full ring of Kingsford and 5 big hickory chunks each. Sand in one pan and 2 firebricks in the other. Lit the center with the hose torch and let it rip until the dome temp hit 175, then I shut down the bottom three 75%. After about an hour the temps settled in at 245 (around 6pm). Then the storms started coming so I slide the patio table with the umbrella over to cover the WSMs. At that point, I set the Mavericks and went to bed! The therms didn't make a noise until I was coming out of the bedroom this morning (at 5am) and both had dropped to 210, so I added 20 more briquettes. 11 hours in the wind and rain, thanks Weber! Temps are at 160 now, so I'll be pulling some butt around noon!

Here's some pic's from the beginning, I'll update when they are done, I don't open the lid EVER until the meat is done! :wsm:

BTW, Jim Babek how is your overnighter coming along? We were cooking the same amount of meat if I remember correctly?

Way to go Larry. WSMs are hard to beat.

Wonder what he used for rub?

Butts are done, pulled and in the freezer for a quick chill for an hour or so then into the fridge overnight. Tomorrow, everything will be vacuum sealed and frozen. Almost done........

Anyone want to guess what the final yield will be?? I started off with 75.13lba and I'm guessing I will have about 42lbs of finished product. I'll let you know tomorrow after everything is packed.

I'm thinking closer to 40 lbs. Of course, there will probably be a couple pounds of packaging. That's about what the Cap'n said.

Those WSM made a believer out of me on those long cooks and not have to tend to it. My guess is 39.5. By the way are you sending me a pack of meat.
