Largest pulled pork cook I've ever done

  1. Cooked 157lbs of Boston Butt for a pulled pork sale this weekend.  Turned out quite well I believe.  Sold every single bit of it and had to turn people away at the end.  Going for 200lbs next month.

     Got the smoke rolling about 5:00 PM

    What I was working with.

    Rubbed and ready placed in smoker around 6PM after warming up to room temp.  About an hour.

    Time to cover about 11 PM they've had all the Hickory smoke they can handle.

    Some of the neighborhood dogs knew what was up.

    Finished product about 8 AM.  Some of the Butts furthest from the fire box still needed a couple more hours.

    Let me know what you all think.  I didn't inject or baste just a mustard base with a sweet spicy rub I made at home.  It included paprika, cayenne, chilli powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, brown sugar, and just a touch of some table sugar.

    It all looks great, especially that bark! I need to do PP soon.

    Great use of the oil tanks.

  4. Thank you! Hoping to add another one by next year.  The one on the left is 30+ years old and has some holes.  It can be a battle keeping temp right at times.

    That's a nice big smoke!! Them large smokes are a lot of work though. Did you pull all that pork by hand?

    Wow that looks great nice job! I'm doing 80lbs this weekend for a upcoming grad party in June. I do it ahead of time and bag it and freeze it.

    Did you keep yours panned the entire time?
