To recap events of the past cook. On Wednesday my brother in-law asked me if it wouldn't be to much trouble if I would cook some pork butts for him, without thinking I said sure no problem. to paraphrase a line from Uncle Buck "for an imposition this big one can only ask a family member". I should have asked the three major questions before saying yes. Who, what and when. The who was my brother-in-laws sons entire Football team= 90members, the what was a parent player diner and the when was Thursday night not in a week but tomorrow. That night my brother-in-law shows up at 7:00pm with 58lbs of boneless pork butts=8 and all the ingredients for Coleslaw, Rub and my special sauce. The fire was built and the butts where on and sauce made by 10:00pm, dinners is at 5:30pm the next day. The butts where done at 11:00am, I cooked them at a temp higher temp than normal 240 degrees fearing that they wouldn’t be done in time. Double wrapped them in foil and put them in a cooler with warm towels. When we pulled them at 5:00 they still were so hot you couldn’t handle them with bare hands. At 6:00 the on slot ensued, those boys can really eat, some came back 3 and 4 times, it was mayhem by 7:30 we ran out of everything, thank God we had 2 big Costco slab cakes.
