How much of each catagory do you cook when you are competing? Have judged several contests and looks like alot of meat is in the pits.

As we are practicing for next year, we need to be able to meet times and I would guess the more you load in to the pit the longer it will take.

I usually do 2 briskets, 2 butts, 6 slabs of ribs, and about 2-3 dozen thighs.

I agree lots o' meat. Do what Jeff does food saver the rest and you will have BBQ for anytime. I only do one brisket but everything else I do as much as everyone.

And yes Pimp we had that discussion over by the Spicewine.

This is about the same amount we use except we do more thighs. Closer to twenty-five because it's hard to get some that are the same size.

I suspect it's because he's cooking in Texas. IBCA and LSBS don't have a butt/shoulder category, unless it is an optional deal.

2 Butts- 2 Briskets- 6 Ribs- 16-24 Thighs.
This amount will give plenty to chose from for turn in. We've never had a problem with leftovers, lots of family and friends. We do freeze some.

2 briskets, 2 butts, 3 slabs, 18 thighs.

Leftovers get cryovac-ed and brought home and given to neighbors/church or frozen.

I bet you are like us....Pastor saying..."So, when is your next contest?" :biggrin:
He's a fan of the Belly Brothers brisket, so I try and take care of him and his family when I can.

Oh yes, they have a wed. evening "Pizza church" session... and what they call rainbow kids, basically Sunday school on Wed. evening for the lil ones... And they want to change it to "BBQ church" instead of "Pizza Church".

You kidding about the loins? Or do you cook something other than KCBS?

My bad, I didn't see that he mentioned butts. I was skimming posts to fast. I was thinking pork loins. I would love to turn those in instead of butt.
