Pulled Pork for the Luau

Our company hosted a business after hours, so my brother helped me smoke 70 LBS of pork butts for pulled pork. It cooked down to 30 LBS, took a total of about 36 hours in cooking time (3 - 12 hour cooks), and the finished product was such a hit I'm still taking phone calls from people that attended raving about the meat. I ended putting about a liter of Coke into 20-ish Lbs of pork, and it came out fantastic. I was amazed how the meat soaked up the moisture

    That's a lot of pig...36 hours! How often did you have to add lump? After about 16 hours my lump is usually gone but so is my cook. But I did have room for more lump in the beginning.

    Good job spreading the BGE gospel! Of course Lindy's will be paying you your regular commission for sales of eggs - right? :whistle:

  • I did a cook of 14 hours, then added lump and started the second cook. Meanwhile, my brother did 4 butts on his LG BGE, so all told it was about 36 hours.
    And thanks Ron, the coke made it perfect, and I'm stoked about Oswego TOO!
