    Wow that is beautiful.  I bet a high school football team can wreck some pork!  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • You should share out the pics from the boys chowing down. Watch out it could become a good luck charm and before you know it your roped into a weekly cook....

    That handle is great, where did you find that?
  • Here are the particulars, the setup is platesetter and stock grill over a drip pan 7butts on the stock grill and one on a small grill set ontop of the butts, on the bottom I used bambo sticks to seperate all butts. Smoke was hickory and apple temp was 240 because we only found out about the dinner at 7:00pm last night so I cooked at a higher temp than usual.I made the handle out off apple wood the shape works out perfectly for a forearms closer when yours hands are messy.

    What is the fluke meter? Is it temperature specific?

  • It looks like the Fluke is:

    Pricey compared to the Thermoworks model which looks very similar. No idea if there's any better accuracy for well over $100 more. I have the Thermoworks model:

    Fluke is always pricey. Great products though.

    A mountain of pork.  It is truly beautiful.
  • smokesniffersmokesniffer Posts: 2,016
    Wow!!! =D> That looks like a good time. Is that a record for the largest amount of pork on an egg?? You may just get an award, or at the very least get asked to do it again.
