Default Wampus's BLOCK PARTY

So a little while back, the wife and I decided to send out invitations to our entire neighborhood to come to the house for a pitch-in dinner. We've lived in our neighborhood for about 3 years now and since we don't know THAT many people, we thought this may be a solution.

We bought the meat, I cooked it and everyone else was asked to bring a side and their own drinks. We ended up having about 30 people come and it really was a good time. Got to meet several new people and have since given and received many a wave coming and going.

Anyway....

I dug out a shank portion Cook's ham and 2 whole chickens out of the freezer, and went and picked up 2 cryopacks of butts from Sam's.

The butts:


Rubbed with KC's Rub (of course....what else???) and put on the UDS the night previous (at about 11:00 pm):


The next morning at about 7:45 after cooking at 225 for the entire time:


At about 11 am, I rubbed and put on the ham, also rubbed with KC's:


After a couple of hours, I spatchcocked the 2 chicks and put them on to join the ham (no pics here).

After about another 1-1/4 hours, the ham and chicks were done:


MMmmmmmmmmmmmm..........ham goodness (photo taken after the whiskey-brown sugar glaze):


The chickens:


And then it was time to pull the pork (which had been coolered since removing from the smoker). My son had a friend over to spend the night and they were both MORE than willing to help out. Errrr....my son is the one with the "I'm so hungry I'm going to eat until it hurts!" crazy stare.


Pulled the pork, carved the ham and chicks and served. Didn't get any pics of the final spread (!!). We got RAVE reviews on everything. I had many a comment like:

"You know, I don't usually care for chicken, but THAT was incredible!"
"VERY good meat. I tried a little of everything, but, I gotta tell you, you REALLY outdid yourself with that ham!"
"You should compete against Squeelers! (our local BBQ joint) Your pork is a LOT better!"
"You can cook for me anytime!"

And the best question of the day.....
"Say....how much would you charge to cook for a party for me?"


Thanks for looking. We've got a lot of friends in the neighborhood now.

Nice looking spread of meat (who cares about the other stuff right?). Especially interested in the ham, considering doing one myself. Can you give me a start to finish run down on the ham (exact cut, precooked?, glaze recipe?, time in the smoker) Thanks in advance.

Great spread and great way to meet the neighbors. I have done the same thing, and got the somewhat the same responses.
Cooked for quite a few parties. I cook for cost, this helps me perfect the trade. Almost like free schooling.

What did you use on your chickens? and what temp? Color and skin look great.
