Got snookered into cooking for Young Son's Cub Scout Blue and Gold Banquet. One Dad, who got a Weber smoker for Christmas (Poor guy), apparently, decided he was Dr. BBQ and volunteered to make pulled pork for the dinner. Well, this was a disaster in the making. First he decided that 50 Lbs of uncooked butt was enough to feed 100 people. Then he complained that he couldn't get it at a reasonable cost. Then a local store put butts on sale for 99 cents a pound, but wouldn't wave the "2 butts maximum" for purchasing. The Dad wouldn't believe me that we'd need like 85 Lbs of uncooked butt to feed 100 people, but we managed to scrounge up something like 75 Lbs, cooked, after I spend all day tomorrow cooking up two more.
So, how can we stretch this? We're Yankees and not a lot of people put cole slaw on their sandwich, although we will have that. And how much Coke do I put in the crock pots to keep moisture in the pork?
Plus, if any of you have an extra crock pot we could use, that'd be appreciated, too. LOL! I'm not sure we have enough.
I need to guide these newbies gently...
