37 lbs. of Pork


I helped my friend with a Kentucky Derby party for about 75 people.  I love watching the Derby every year.  It also gave me a good reason to break out the new smoker I got for Christmas!

I picked up four pork shoulders (“butts”) totaling 37 lbs.!  I dry rubbed them overnight.


Next was into the smoker at 250 degrees (F) for 5 hours.

Third step – place the butts into foil pans and cover with heavy duty foil.  Lower the temp. down to 150 degrees (F) for 8 hours.


Remove the pans and let them cool for about an hour.  Peel off the fat cap and drain the grease.  Then the delicious meat will just fall apart!

Serve on a soft roll with BBQ sauce and slaw if you like.
