Default Holiday Bash Has Begun!!!

Well Brothers, after weeks and weeks of preparation, the cooking for todays Holiday Barbeque has commenced. I started burning the hardwood down around 7 pm last night, priming the "Dera and 68 lbs. of meat hit the Pit around midnight. I dry rubbed and wrapped the meat on Thursday - and put a second coat on it just before it went in the chamber last night. It's around 5:30 am now, and I've been tending to it in between naps! Whew, I'm a little bit tired. But I think the shots of Cabo Wabo and Patron will wake me up once everyone starts gettin' here!!!!

I'll try to keep a post going with photos from time to time today. The thin blue smoke is just about perfect right now. Wish me luck Brothers - you've all helped to make this one of my best Q's ever!

Ok Brothers - one brisket has been foiled and bumped up to 190 and in the cooler! The other brisket, sirloin roast and 2 of the butts are foiled and in the pit. The last butt is at 153 and climbing nice and slow. This is by far, the best Q I've ever produced, thanks to everyones tips and insight. I must say - WE KNOW HOW TO 'Q!!!
I tell ya, I've been busier than a one legged Dog at a sausage factory! LOL! This is the first chance since this morning that I've been able to get a breath and do a post. Once everything is in the cooler - I'll be able to post some more pictures. It's 12:45 pm here in Florida, and I think it's time for a cold beer and a shot of tequilla! Raise your glasses, Brothers!

More to come - stay tuned!

Jeff

Well - either Jeff keeled over from the food or is too hungover to give an update.

Yep! You're correct on BOTH counts! Sorry fella's, I appologize for being late on the updates, but as more people started trickling in the demands for my time time precluded me from getting to my computer. I'd basically been up since midnight Friday night to start the pit and the last of the partygoers didn't leave until 2:30 am, Sunday morning! Yesterday was a clean up and "recovery" day. It reminds me why I only throw THAT big of a bash 4 times a year!

Let me just say that the 'Q was fantastic! Once I started feeding everybody, the quiet of everyone stuffing their faces and the raves about the meat afterwards was music to my ears! I suppose that's why we do what we do............ right Brothers? Some of my friends think I'm insane to go through all that trouble, but to me, it's FUN because I love it!!!

It was hillarious to see a bunch of well fed intoxicated adults, sitting around my outdoor fireplace singing along to the Christmas music I was playing! Believe it or not, it had actually dipped down into the mid 40's here in South Florida that night - it was perfect for shooting the Bull around the fire pit.

Here's a few photos, my digital doesn't do well at night, so most of them are with my 35mm. I'll probably do a "photo album" once they are all developed.

Thanks for all the help and frienship guys!
