Default Troop cook

This weekend I had a going away party for my guys. We have a 9 month long all inclusive paid vacation to Afghanistan coming up. I asked them what they wanted to eat, and all 25 of them wanted pulled pork. so I obliged. All in all there were about 60 people there with families included. I didn't get any shots at the party. My phone died, and we forgot our camera, because I was running late. These are the pictures that I did manage to take. The party was a great success. The food was great, and all of the families had a good time.

A picture of my dudes. I'm the one in front.


I got up at 4am to get the egg going so I could get it steady before I went off to PT at 745. It was 22 degrees out and lightly snowing.


I bought five pork shoulder picnics to cook. I injected them with the chris Lilly recipe. Unfortunately I didn't have apple juice, but I used juicy juice fruit punch, and it turned out just fine.


I got everything on the cooker around 6 am


I ran home around 10am to check on the meat. Everything was going great.


They started getting done around 3. I cooked them until the lowest temp I found in the meat was 195. Then I pulled and wrapped for two hours. This is one of them straight from the grill.


I took this one out of the foil to pull it, and when I unwrapped it, it literally fell apart. This is the most tender pork I have ever cooked. The picture doesn't do it justice.


Faced with the prospect of pulling five giant pieces of meat by myself, I caved and used my mixer, which I have never done until this point. I will never pull meat by hand again.


After 20-30 seconds in the mixer


If I can find some pictures of the party, I heard a rumor there might be some out there, I will edit and put them on. Thank you for looking. Cheers.

I couldn't have said it better so I'll just say "me too!"

Also... I have one of those mixers so I'l have to give that a try. (Technically SWMBO has the mixer but I use it. )

Cool use of a mixer. Not sure my wife will let me try that with hers.

Your Troop looks like they will be able to take care of business in country.

Be safe.

The pork looks great! Thank's for your service and I guess you've answered some questions about how much meat you can get on a large BGE. Nicely done.
