43 Pounds of Pulled Pork

Well that is what it weighed raw.

Done indirect at 220 until near the end, then the temperature rose some even with the Egg almost shut down.  Second time in a row with a good steady temperature rise with out a stall.

Lightly marinated overnight with Dichickos Garlic, and reapplied when put in the Egg.  Did not use a rub.

So tender at 200 internal that it was hard to harvest.

Had wings for lunch, with my brother who lent moral support throughout the cook.

No plated pic, this is for tomorrow.  It is still too hot, after an hour, to completely shred right now.

    Just stole a few pieces, finger eating tonight.  The bark was not dramatic but is darned tasty.  Sauced with my favorite BBQ, Sweet Baby Ray's and Dichickos Extra Hot, 50/50.

    Nice looking cook, congrats! Do you always foil overnight or just when using a marinade rather than a rub? Love the look of those wings too.

    Cheers-

    I do tend to foil, cling wrap, marinate, which I know is not traditional.  Works for me.  When I do one with a rub, I just coat with mustard and rub, right before the cook.

    Pork looks great, are you throwing a shindig or just stocking up?

    Looks great Doc!! I have a niece getting married in August and I need to cook several Boston Butts, I have an AR and was wondering how this was going to turn out. It looks as if I can do 4 at a time. I wonder how they would be if I fixed them a day or so early and then vac sealed until needed?

    I could have done one, maybe two, more if I really cramed them in.  I just about the same amount of work to do four as it is to do one so we always max out and freeze most of it.

    Doc does it affect them to freeze them for a couple days? How is the best way to reheat ... boiling water maybe? I am thinking of shreding, vac pack, freezing, placing vac bags in boiling water to reheat. How do you do yours, any suggestions?

    Doc, about how many people will that comfortably feed? I'll be having a party next month for about 50-75 people. Trying to decide how much I'll need.

    We freeze individual baggies for months and they taste fine.  We just microwave warm, but if we're feeding a crowd we use a slow cooker to reheat, adding some broth for moisture.

    I don't know the finished weight, but if it losses a third of it's weight that should be around 29 pounds of cooked meat.  How many pounds per person are you estimating.

    I did the same thing for last Thanks Giving and reheated two crock pots of meat.  We feed 12 people and ended up giving the second pot full away as take-homes.
