BBQ birthday bash for the wifey
 
So I'm looking to do pulled pork on the 22.5 kettle, ribs on the uds, ABT's on the Char-Griller for the wifes bday. I might just end up going to Costco but wanted to see where you guys buy your meat. Looking for some good Dino ribs for the wifey since that's what she request. Going to sprinkle everything with Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple rub, maybe some Memphis meat dust. What do you guys think? Ya won't see pron until mid July. I like to plan ahead. Thanks

Sounds like a plan. Just remember to show us pictures. :grin:

Ok so final menu is going to be ribs, pulled pork, ABT's with pasta salad and some cole slaw.

I figure 3-4 ribs per person plus and pulled pork sandwich with sides should be sufficient. I'm have at most 16 people so 8 slabs of ribs and a 10lb butt? At least 32 ABT's? Sounds about right?

I may be wrong but unless you have some really big eaters that sounds like allot of food per person. I'm a big guy myself and I would barely be able to eat that much. If you’re serving a pulled pork sandwich with sides and appetizers I'd figure on 1 or 2 ribs per person. My $.02

hachi-roku_fan 07-11-2013 10:26 AM

Maybe I'll lower it to a solid 3 ribs per person to be on the safe side and in case people want seconds

Ok so I just picked up most of my materials.

6 STL ribs from Costco
9.8 lb. bone in pork shoulder
Jalapeños
Cheese
Bacon
Decided to go with sweet Hawaiian rolls
A case of Amstel

Made Shack Attack sauce and bottled it

Quick question. If I want to pulled pork and ribs to be done roughly around the same hour when should I start the pork shoulder? I plan to start serving around 2-4pm.

So up nice and early to put the pork butt in waiting for the uds to come up to temp.

plenty of food, not enough beer

Everything sounds great I thought you were doing beef ribs too

LMAJ 07-13-2013 09:07 AM

I know it's a little late, but for pork I always figure 1.5 hours/pound then I add a couple hours to account for stubborn meat and some resting time.

Sounds like you have a good plan - looking at the time stamps on your posts - did you even go to sleep last night???

hachi-roku_fan 07-13-2013 09:30 AM

Haha yea I did get 6 hours of sleep in. Stayed up until
Midnight cleaning and prepping the meat. Looked at the label on the pork butt and its actually an 8 pounder so I should be ready to eat around 4-5 which is fine. As far as beer goes, I'll be one of 3 beer drinkers today and I'm sure we will get into the whiskey lol

hachi-roku_fan 07-13-2013 09:31 AM

I did a test run on bee ribs and they weren't to the wife's liking so she said let's do STL ribs

firefighter4634 07-13-2013 10:28 AM

Sounds like a fun party. I usually buy all my meat from Sam's. I also agree that you might be a bit heavy on how much food you are cooking, but then left overs are always good!

hachi-roku_fan 07-13-2013 04:46 PM

Everything's going smoothly so far
