    I started at 12:00 noon Saturday and finished at 5:00 am Sunday morning. Smoked 88 lbs. of Boston Butts, 2 sausage fatties and brewed three different 5 gallons batches of beer. The pulled pork was fed to 93 construction workers tonight for lunch along with baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw and lots of deserts. Everything went great except couldn't bring the beer to work or take any photo's of the feed, very restrictive construction site.
    Thanks for looking,

    Great looking job, Coffee. They had to be well fed after all that... but knowing Constr. workers, They probably wanted more[​IMG]  .

    I enjoy a long full Smoker Cook myself:

    I use the local woods, no reason to order or buy wood when you can take a road trip in the P/U and find all sort of Woods people will give you. I do some Bartering too; wood for a cooked animal...and usually they supply that too, just don't Smoke.

     this one was for some Maple...1/2 P/U full.

    I can get and use Hickory ,Maple Cherry, Apple (lots of that around) ,Peach,and have had some Pear Wood, good flavor.

    Get out and enjoy the Summer and our lovely Country. You'll be surprized at what may show-up...

    I know what you mean. I'm lucky enough to have all the wood I'll ever need for smoking. Although I'm living and working in Kentucky, I have a thirty two acre farm in Alabama with all lots of hickory, oak and cherry. Here's a pic of the last load I hauled back, hauled two of these loads last winter. I bought a lot bigger trailer to haul with this year.
