Default Butts on a Drum ? and Dad's T-Day Menu release!

Okay, my dad has put out the T-Day menu and I'm in charge of pulled pork and Beer Can birds. The birds are taking place of the turkey this year. NO TURKEY this year. We will have pork, beef(mom's making pulled beef, brisket), and chicken. My dad did not want to fark with deep frying turkeys this year. (Thank God!) While it's fun, it's a chore too. I want to try to cook the butts the day of instead of beforehand.
So I have a ? Eating time is slated for 3 PM---SHARP!

If I run the drum hot, 275-300, and let's figure in one hour for resting(or at least 30 minutes, could I get em done in a 6 hour cooking time? Also, what would be the best (maximum) temp to get them up to so they pull like butta with the least amount of rest time?

Gracias!
Bob

Sounds good. I can be there by 3:00, but no turkey?

Nope. No turkey. We celebrate T-Day with my dad's side of the family on Friday, so by then, everyone has had their fill of turkey with their Outlaws, me included. Plus, dad wanted a break from heating up oil, frying, and especially the clean up. I usually help him and watch the birds and fryer so we end up spending a lot of time outside instead of inside with the family. So he scrapped em this year. I'm not complaining either!

I can't tell you a time but when the bone pulls out easily it will be easy to pull. I would start a little earlier than you think you need it done. Then hold your pork in a cooler until dinner time. That way it is done and ready to go. You should be able to hold the pork for a few hours in a cooler without any problems.

Does a 6 hour cook at those temps seem unrealistic? I forgot to mention that my drum is at Dad's and I wanted to cook them there the day of instead of having to haul my drum back home and cook em ahead of time like on Wed or Thur night when I get back from Outlaws.

Yeah, 6 hours seems reasonable. I was just suggesting that you get them done early so you don't miss your Dad's deadline.

Can't advise you on the times as I don't have enough experience, but I always said it's way better to be early than late.
Now, do y'all ship overnight?

That's exactly what I'm trying to avoid. Personally, I don't like cooking with a deadline, so I'm trying to figure out the worst case scenario that will give me enough time to cook em and have the extra hour or so at the end to either rest or pull. So let's say, getting at his house at 6 and drum going and meat in it by at least 7 or sooner and then adjusting vents and making sure it is running right so I can go back home by 8 to pick up wife and kids, etc etc, and then be back by lets say 10 (dad will be monitoring it while I'm gone) Then best case would be they are pretty much done by 1 or so maybe 2 and then cooler and or just quick counter rest and pull as that point. Does it sound doable?

I'll PM you the GPS coordinates to dad's house if you want! I'm sure I'll have plenty of pics to share.

Your schedule is what I was thinking you should do. The extra 2 hours will be helpful.

Mom will have desserts done the day ahead and Dad will get most of the prep work done on Thursday as well. She'll have the brisket in the oven in the early AM, and the rest she'll get done before 3 with the help of Uncle Frank and several glasses of wine accompanied by jazz music. Pretty much the rule is stay the fark outta the kitchen till 3. Before that time Mom is cooking and Uncle Frank is tending to his famous ham in the roaster. We try to stay out of their way as much as possible. During this time my dad, brother and I are out back tending the grills, smokers, and working up a buzz!

Happy T-Day to you too!

Do you go in the 275-300 temp range or hotter? Or start low and finish hot or vise versa? I'm thinking of opening up the drum so it runs a bit hotter as we near the 3 PM deadline!!

Thanks!

Bob

Damn, Bob that is a hittable menu! You may want to do boneless butts, since it is high heat! You get more penetration of the rubs and smoke into the butts.
