    Went to the store to get all the stuff for this. Ended up buying 3 more Butts . Can't pass up the $0.99lbs sale on them so 5 butts will be going on the smoker Sunday.

    Thought I cooked a lot for me and the wife...... It is hard to pass up on good deals. I had too today when I was at the store. They had $.99 a lb for pork shoulders. We were still running errands and did not have a way to keep cold. But I may go back later this week and take the cooler and stock up for a big cook with the kids next weekend.

    Looks like you will have a little leftovers for some easy meals later :biggrin:
