My job is paying me to smoke pork.....!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'Pork' started by burgi, Jun 1, 2011.

  1. I was at work on Tuesday when I was approached and asked if I would smoke some pork for pulled pork. I looked at her and guess I had a look of "DUH" on my face because before I could say anything she said "we'll go get the pork on wens." So, today we went and got 6 pork shoulders between 7-8 lbs. I came home and did the dry rub, wrapped and the are taking a nap overnight in the garage fridge. I am leaving work at 230 tomorrow to smoke them starting at 400 pm, then on Friday going into work late with 6 smoked pork shoulders.

    I plan on starting at 400 pm, smoking through thursday night and then foiling and put in a towel lined ice chest to keep until 1000 am friday morning when I pull them. I have to admit, I am feeling the pressure..... will be feeding about 60 people. 

    I'll post pics as i do the smoke!!!!!!!!!

    "If I could make a living out of smokin' Q,

    I'd be a millionaire in a week or two.

    I'd be doin' what I love and lovin' what I do,
    If I could make a livin' out of smokin' Q!"

    I was so excited for ya gettin paid, I didn't even THINK of the overtime comin your way!!!!
  12. I wish there was OT in this gig..... I got paid for today and actually had it off and getting paid for tomorrow and have it off. So i guess its paid for 16 hrs and doing something I LOVE for approx 12 hrs........ works for me.

    i cant wait for lunch tomorrow, I'll be there for that!!!!!!

    I have learned a few things all ready.... first- my smoker is good for about 3 of these not 6.... I ended up with 5 on the smoker and 1 in the....gulp.... oven....... but I figure with them all mixed together, it should be Okey dokey......... keeping fingers cross.

    thanks for all the well wishes!!!!!!!

    Sounds like you're going to be the most popular guy at work!  (if you weren't already...)  It feels so good when people appreciate what we do, even better if they want to pay us! Hope you can get a group shot or two of your crew enjoying your que (ooh, I poem-ed!)  and giving you 120 thumbs up!  Have fun!
