Default Been giving the smoker a work out!

Been putting the ol' FEC through the paces lately. I catered a 60th wedding anniversary for 125 ppl and used the FEC to cook the potatoes and beans, then used it as a food holder/warmer when I ran out of room in the Cambro. It was 111 outside. My partner and I were a little worse for wear, but the smoker worked great!

Yesterday I loaded up 135lbs of pork butts for another cook and she handled them like a champ! She held at 240 the entire cook on the 225 setting (which is my preferred cooking temp anyways). Wasnt bad for being 108 outside. We had a brown out about halfway through the cook and by the time the power turned back on, I had only lost 35 in the cooking chamber.

The 16 butts turned out great and fed alot of happy people!

Cookshack FEC-100, Weber Genesis, 4'x6' Santa Maria grill on a trailer
