We also do chicken and tri-tip, ribs when they are on sale, or by request.

You know Thom it works. Lots of folks are cooking hot and fast these days. We normally chop our brisket for the market, so this method works really well for us. The butts do not seem to care how they are cooked, always come out great. Hard to screw up a pork butt.....wait, I did on Saturday with 35th place :-)

We cook both the butts and brisket until about 170* IT, then put in foil pans and cover. This helps keep them moist and speeds up the cook too.

We still inject both cuts prior to cooking, and cook fat up.

Lots of smoke ring on them too.

Bigmista, for folks interested in getting into vending at Farmers markets What do the logistics look like for your operation.
1.) Licensed Kitchen use or onsite methods
2.) Meat cooked in Kitchen and transferred to Markets.
3.) Or is Meat prepped in Kitchen, transferred to smoker and cooked in route?

Wife and I are considering markets/catering, we have talked to some kitchens but none of the managers have any suggestions other than those discussed (Vaccum packed, ect.)

Thanks for any help

I had a similar question. Let's say you are catering a lunch party, do you show up at the persons house at 4am to start your briskets? Can you cook in the cooker while you are driving?

Good topic... I am in Florida and wanted to know if anyone has experience vending in this State? I would like to try a market but only have the equipment that one would use at a competition. Could I get away with setting up a white vending tent with tables and my stumps smoker behind me?

How involved is everyone else's set ups?
