    Pork butts for the O.R. Crew

    Did some BBQ for the OR Nurses, Pre-Op Nurses, Post-Op Nurses and the rest of the OR team. Completed pics not available as my Sous Chef (my lovey Bride) deleted the pics taken on her phone. Did 8 pork butts and could maybe have squeezed a ninth on the Yoder YS-640 (would have been tight).

    Used two rubs 1) Eat BBQ rub and 2) MMD. Dry brined for 14 hours then rub on for 6 hours (applied early as I had to get them on the smoker in the early am to have ready early enough for 2-3 hr rest). Was told by all that it was the best pulled pork they ever had including a restaurant owner in town (although Hays isn’t exactly a BBQ Mecca) it was nice to hear.

    Thanks to Meathead, the Amazing Ribs team and y’all here in The Pit for helping me learn enough through the years to pull this off. You all helped make a bunch of hard-working folks and their significant others happy and full.

    Dang I wish you worked up here.


      Very nice. How long was the actual cook? Good job!

        All told about 9 hours with a three hour rest.

      That's great and a very nice thing to do. I'd like to see how many of those I can fit on my 22" WSM.

      Ditto in giving credit where credit is due.
      What you said is so true.


        Nice Job


          Very nice thing to do for your team and co-workers.




              Looks really cool!


                Very nice as usual, Paul


                  Awesome thing for you to do. I am sure it was very appreciated.

                    Thanks! I now have other units in the hospital requesting a similar treat. I guess good news travels fast!

                  Yup, the Amazingness continues! Good work man!


                    Those look terrific. Great job on the good deed. I'm sure that team was loving it. I really hope to have a Yoder someday. I've been admiring those for awhile.

                    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.

                    Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                    We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                    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’.

                    Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                    Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                    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.
