    Thank God for Kids! Fundraiser Butt Cook

    Cooked a few butts for a fundraiser, a couple of weeks ago. I used my old smoker locker. I made some racks for smoking turkeys and hams in it, and thought it would work for butts as well. I had to keep a pretty good bit of wood in the firebox to keep it up to temp, but it did great. Two of my sons pitched in for the cook, and three of them went to the fundraiser the next day and pulled and sauced all the meat. I couldn't have got it done without them. All the guys from the Legion, that said they would help, never showed up. LOL.

    Nice hat. I'm cooking a small butt today. Wife bought exactly what I told her not to buy.

      Bet it was on sale though. My definition for women is buys things they don't need at prices they can't pass up.

      Yeah nice hat Swamp Donkeyz --- I gotta get one of those!

    those look like some helpful kids


      You have some good boys there! Keep teaching them, the lessons learned young will serve them a lifetime! It will seem like you just got up one morning and they will be 40 years and living in Dubai, I know. Dan


        That is a heck of a lot of butts!


          Thanks for the compliments on the kids. They were definitely life savers.


            Like you, my kids and wife are my favorite helpers. Cant do it without em and love every minute of it!


              What a GREAT Family! Someday those boys are going to say-
              "Dad remember that time we did all those butts for that fundraiser? That was fun, we should do that again sometime." Good job everybody!

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

              Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
