    After reading many of the informative posts on this and a few other boards, I recently purchased a CharGriller with SFB. I've been doing bbq for a few years now going from indirect cooking on a weber kettle, to an ECB, and now to the CG. I purchased the CG because I volunteered to cook for a wedding (My own [​IMG] ) and I need to be able to cook enough pulled pork for about 60 people. Harris Teeter had Pork Butt on sale this week for 97 cents a pound, so I picked up 10 of them in the 7 to 8lb range. I plan on cooking some ahead of time and maybe about 4 or 5 the day of.

    Thanks for all the great information. I plan on sticking around a while and sharing my bbq experiences.

    Welcome to SMF jstreet0204. Glad to have you with us. It sounds like you're gonna be busy on your big day. I think I'd want to do them all ahead of time, unless it is a really informal wedding.

    Keep Smokin

    Welcome to SMF ... you're in good company here!

    I'm jealous ... there's no way I can get pork but for .97 ... I just paid about $4 lb for a boneless one from a butcher here in Ontario.

    Can't believe you are cooking for 60 ppl for your own wedding! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    The wedding is actually the day before on Fri and will be just close family, then the reception is on Sat. The reception is a very informal Luau party. This is both of our second wedding, so this time around we realized it isn't all about all the flashy formal stuff with a bunch of catered fancy wedding food that nobody really likes anyway. The party starts at 2pm so I will start it the night before. I have all the gear to manage it and still set some sleep so I'm looking forward to it.

    Yup. I'll have some coming up shortly that I took last night and this morning. I went ahead and cooked two of the butts last night to get a feel for how it was going to go doing an over night cook. I just got through suck vacing them with the food saver, but I have to get the wife to be to get her pics of the wedding dress off the camera first since I don't think I am supposed to see it.

    Hey, I did... at least we knew what we were getting! We had a blast, in our own back yard, food prepared by me on my own grill (didn't have a smoker then...) and deep fried turkeys, plus lots of salads and stuff people brought.
