Default 8 Butts in the cooker?

I have a Birthday party that someone asked me to cook for. About 100 people give or take, with turkey sandwiches too. (Someone else is making those)

I got a case at Sam's for .99 cents a lb. 8 Butts are 68 lbs. I was going to cook on the Jambo, but my wood pile is soggy with sideway rain the last four days, so I think I can squeeze them on the Treager.

I have never cooked this much meat at once. Is there anything to be careful of or different than my regular weekend gigs of two butts and a few birds? Will that much meat take any longer to smoke?

I figured maybe 50% yield should cover it? Does that sound about right?


I use a formula
24 cans of beer lbs of meat X temp +- foil = vodka
Works almost every time <*{{{}}}><
