Default Cooked for a large party last weekend!(pron)

This is my first food pron post(pop goes the cherry!)

Did my first large cook for a fairly big gathering last weekend. It was a party celebrating the life of my brother-in-law who passed back in January, hosted out at my brother's farm. I got there around 9:30AM, and got cookin at 10. Decided to keep fairly simple with pulled pork and my smoked spinach-stuffed meatloaf. My brother also picked up about 10 Amish chickens, though they looked more like turkeys- they were HUGE! I helped him out a bit with those and beer-canned four on my drum grill while he deep fried the rest. He also had some venison tenderloins which he asked me to smoke- I've never dabbled in venison so I just threw 'em on the UDS with the rest of the meat! There was a crowd of about 50 friends and family there, and the food was all well received. I was pretty busy throughout the day but my lady got some photos along the way. Didn't get any of the finished meatloaf though- it pretty much disappeared in minutes! Pork came out great, and that went fast as well. The venison was a pleasant surprise too as I typically don't care for it, but this came out great and not gamey at all. Could be because it's pretty much corn fed since there's corn fields all over out there...
Overall everything went great and I had a blast cookin! Hope you enjoy the food pron

Thanks man. The loaf is a mixture of ground round and ground pork, corn bread stuffing, a little bbq sauce, an egg, seasonings and then its spread out flat, topped with spinach and rolled up and sprinkled with pork rub. It usually takes about 3 hours in the smoker at 275-300*. I brush it with more sauce about a half hour before the end to make a nice glaze on top.

I serve it over mustard mash with a pan sauce made from the drippings-

Great post! How much fun is it to cook for a big group (assuming you did well)? Go to bed with a smile. Nice job!
