    Congrats! I'd love a grill trophy, cool stuff.

    Well, I'm finally recovering from yesterday. No pics yet from the actual event, but folks were definitely lovin' every bite. Some loaded up the kaiser rolls with chicken, pork, slaw, and lexington dip. We had four different baked beans (one smoked!) and over a dozen cornbreads, including three cooked in cast iron skillets. I was gifted some home-brew and a trophy for holding the party every year. One guy brought his guitar and led a sing-along with about a dozen folks. Some walked to the beach, others played the bean bag toss or horseshoes. We had a ton of food and everyone ate well. Folks took home leftovers and recipes, and there will be a bunch of hits to AR starting next week. My guests handled the clean-up and left us over a case of beer. Everyone agreed that pulled pork and Huli Huli chicken beats the hell out of burgers and dogs.

    Huskee you're right about this being fun. At first I was totally freaking out, but as things went the way you all have described I really did start to have a good time. With all the experience on this site I often feel like such a noob. It's not until I have guests who have never tried to make real bbq that I realize I do have a handle on this, particularly after soaking up all the vicarious cooks here. Thank you all for being so encouraging. I'll do my best to pass it along.

    skatur I've done both lamb and goat on the PBC and they come out great...moist and tender. If you hang them all I'm sure Jerrod can come up with a way to get all that in one barrel.

    And yes, we are hiring! But typically for more than three days at a time.

    Got a a PBC yesterday and tried corned beef on it today(fastest thing I could get thawed). It's on the stove cooling now. I'm not sure how long it will be there. I'll try to save some for the hubby but he don't get home until 2:30 am. Yes, it is Fabulous!
    I have a party here on July 11 for my daughter. Anyone ever hear of a Diaper party? Well we're having one and because there weren't too many guests to invite I decided it needed MORE POWER. I turned it into a Summer Celebration BBQ, invited couples and put my neighbors and friends on the list. We are having a friend do a pig for us but I decided to do a lamb ham and goat ham on the PBC. I'm thinking a couple of ducks and rabbits could be squeezed in here, too. I already want a 2nd one but after reading this post I think I'll pick some brains here and see how much I can do with the one I have. In the mean time, I'll keep my eyes peeled for another one, too.
    Carolts, that looks Maaavolus! Thank you for the inspiration.

    Just awesome! Is your company hiring? I will gladly start the day before the cookout and unfortunately will have to put in my resignation the day after you feed me, and repeat the following year. Great job!...I mean the cook not my three day employment.

    Nice job carolts! That looks like a lot of fun. I don't do big cooks too often but when I do I know I enjoy it.

    ​Eight hours in and they're one. They were stuck to the grill, so I had to lift the whole thing out of the barrel (I love my pit mitts!). They were falling-apart done but don't look burnt. I loaded them up into two big foil pans, added a can of Down East hard cider to each, and covered. Once cook enough they went into the fridge. Today they'll go into the over for reheat, then pulled and served. Hopefully not dried out!

    Then we went for pizza ;-)
