Very nice! What's your method? They look great.

I love grilling/ smoking meats. I very nearly decided to smoke a pork butt today, but the thought occurred to me a bit late. At 6-8 lbs they take some time to thaw out and then they need dry brining... takes some foresight.

Smoke them @ 300 when they hit 155 I pull them and crisp them on my gasser. Then I will sauce them in a bowl depending on what sauce and how hot the person wants them. 10lbs makes 2 - 1/2 pans...

Butts don't need brined. I would have just throwed it on frozen and smoked it.

May not need it, but they sure are better for it and there's NO way I'd throw one on frozen.

I follow amazingribs.com methods and use Memphis dust as a rub, with dry brining the night before-- I usually share with up to 30 friends and they leave very happy! :P

When you smoke a lot of butts you buy them by the case frozen. Rub them, throw them on the smoker...they cook up fine.
Is it idea? No but it works.

Funny, this place fits that description pretty much to a tee, there are like two tables, and its usually filled with the owners kids.

So sad I missed this thread until now!

I smoked up a bunch of wings which were glazed with my homemade sriracha BBQ sauce and served with a greek yogurt blue cheese dip. Also did a Choizo/Mushroom queso dip. Add in some Lagunitas and happy times were had. :)

MNF = A large portion of Sriracha BBQ wings, blue cheese dip, and a suped up Chili Con Queso. The chili is courtesy of a Fronter Grill Chili Starter. Look it up online and enjoy. In terms of quick chili it can't be beat. Frankly I'd have to do A LOT of work to make better chili than what comes out of that starter. Strongly recommend for game day eats.

Beer will once again be Lagunitas 12th of Never. Man that stuff is good.

Apologize for the lack of originality, but the wing recipe is killing it right now and the fam and I just can't get enough.

This thread needs more posts. I guarantee I'll have a humdinger on Turkey Day when we thrash the kittens.

Bayless is hard to beat. The man knows his Mexican flavors. :)

I haven't tried the chili starters but I use a number of the other Frontera products. The seasoning sauces are great for tacos. That's the direction I'm leaning for Monday's game: steak tacos. However, I might get some pork and use the Frontera Garlic Pork Carnitas Slow Cook Sauce to make carnitas. I have a packet of it here and it's nice to use the slow-cooker for night games. Smelling the food cooking all day creates even more anticipation for the game!
