Default 75lbs of BUTT

Got a case of pulled pork the other day totalling 75lbs (10 butts). Between thunderstorms I loaded up both WSM's with a full ring of Kingsford and 5 big hickory chunks each. Sand in one pan and 2 firebricks in the other. Lit the center with the hose torch and let it rip until the dome temp hit 175º, then I shut down the bottom three 75%. After about an hour the temps settled in at 245º (around 6pm). Then the storms started coming so I slide the patio table with the umbrella over to cover the WSMs. At that point, I set the Mavericks and went to bed! The therms didn't make a noise until I was coming out of the bedroom this morning (at 5am) and both had dropped to 210º, so I added 20 more briquettes. 11 hours in the wind and rain, thanks Weber! :D Temps are at 160º now, so I'll be pulling some butt around noon!
Here's some pic's from the beginning, I'll update when they are done, I don't open the lid EVER until the meat is done!

Looking good Larry.

I am a little suprised that you had to add any charcoal at all.

We had some big storms roll through last night. With the rain and wind, it eats up more coal.

Boy do you know how to pack your butts tight!
I've never put 5 butts in a bullet before? Was the total cook 18 hours?

Butts are done, pulled and in the freezer for a quick chill for an hour or so then into the fridge overnight. Tomorrow, everything will be vacuum sealed and frozen. Almost done........
Anyone want to guess what the final yield will be?? I started off with 75.13lba and I'm guessing I will have about 42lbs of finished product. I'll let you know tomorrow after everything is packed.

At 40% loss, I figured 45 lbs of finished product, so you are definitely in the ballpark.

So, you cooking this amount just for you, or for someone else?

Looks really good!

I vacuum seal and freeze in 2lb bags and sell for $20 a bag. Most of this is already spoken for, so I may have a couple bags left!
