35 lbs of pork

drmarkodrmarko Posts: 6
Had my egg less than 2 weeks and decide to use it to cook for 100 people.  Made a test run of a 5 lb pork butt the week prior and every thing went well.  So loaded up the green egg with 35 lbs of pork rubbed in a simple rub that I found here and let her fly.  Kept the dome temperature at around 240 for 18 hours.  Some of the smaller buts were done around 15 hours, three of the larger ones were done at 18 hours.    I cut up 8 large Vidalia  onions and baked them in the oven for three hours, mixed them up with the pulled pork along with 8 bottles of Bullseye carolina sauce.   I had people coming up to me telling me it was the best pulled pork they ever ate.  I had 10 lbs left that was taken home by guests.  Thank you eggers for the helpful tips that enabled me to pull this off

  • That's some great looking pork.  I see your egg area is under construction.  Please post some pics so we can see the progress.

    Way to do DrMarko. Nothing like jumping into the deep end.
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Aggressive cook only 2 weeks in. Very nicely done.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.
