My boss at work calls me and asks if I can smoke enough pork butts for 30 people next weekend. Say he'll pay me the cost of the meat and supplies plus a "quite of bit extra" to make it worth my time. Only problem is I'm leaving for Chicago Wednesday morning and his party is next Saturday and Sunday. I hopped down the the local butcher and picked up a couple butts totaling 14.5 lbs and got them rubbed up with some mainstream rub from McCormicks. I used a store rub as I haven't had time to replenish my spice cabinet this week and didn't have time to do so today. Got the MES heating up to 250 since it's chilly outside at 45 degrees today, but at least the sun is shining. I plan to pull them around 200 later tonight, then cooler them for an hour or so, then pull and pack them in to freezer bags to hold them through the week. He is going to thaw them out the night before then reheat them in the oven in a foil-covered pan until they get warm again the day of the first party.
