With tips and tricks I'd gathered from here, I attempted my first big smoke this weekend for a party next weekend. It was a lot of work, but I think it's going to be worth it. I started with 8 butts rubbed down with Jeff's rub Thursday night. Total weight was 65 lbs. At 4:00 Saturday morning I put 6 in my new propane GOSM. The other 2 went in my MES. Sorry, somehow forgot to take pics of the MES ones. You can really see here how the top ones baste the bottom ones. I rotated the racks around to get even heat on them. They all got wrapped in foil at 155 around 11:00. By rotating them around, I managed to finish them all to 200 at about the same time. They all went into a cooler at 3:00. Here is a pic right before pulling. Here they are again about 45 minutes later. I then put it all in the fridge to cool down. Then Sunday I vacuumed sealed it and froze it since the party isn't until next Saturday. My plan is to heat these bags up in a turkey fryer with hot water. Maybe get it close to boiling but not boil it. Then it will go into a roaster with some of the juices I saved. Here it is vacuumed sealed. 42 lbs of finished product. I'll post up next Monday with a report on how it went. Wish me luck!
