    The one from Walmart will do just fine.

    I notice there is another BGE forum. Is it better (less childish nonsense, more BBQ info?)
    There are many others.  

    Post a question and see if it doesn't get answered.  The other thread doesn't bother me.  Not sure why others have their draws in a wad about it.

  • Re: pulled pork for 80

    First post after almost 5 months of egging. 

    I've had success with pulled pork to feed large family gatherings, and now word has spread - I've been asked if I can do pulled pork for a church gathering next month, expecting around 80 for lunch. 

    Before I say yes, any tips or warnings? I'm thinking will need to do six shoulders,  split into 2 batches on my large bge. 
    You will likely need two rounds or another cooking vessel.  

    When you say six shoulders, what do you mean exactly?  Whole shoulders, or the butt?  

    What other items will be there?  Is the Q the only protein?  How many kids? Big eaters? 

    You're going to need roughly 50-60lbs of meat is my estimate.   


    Note, my estimate is raw product.  

    Estimating 5.6oz per person and 40% reduction/shrinkage.  90 lbs would be way too much.
