Decided to celebrate spring with a bbq at the house. I was expecting about 30 some friends. I made a trip to restaurant depot and of course went overboard.

2 packs of pork butt each over 18lbs (36+lbs of pork butt) and a 13 lb brisket.

I used Simply Marvelous Cherry Rub for the pork butts, and 50/50 kosher salt and pepper on the brisket. I didn't get pron of the prepped meat though because I was in a rush to get it done.

My plan was doing the pork butts at 235 that way when i put them on at 1230am. The brisket I cooked in the kettle using the ring of fire method settled in at 250.

I woke up at about 6amish to the mini's and kettle still going strong. The temperature dropped some in the kettle so I threw a couple more lit coals into it.

At about 11am the mini's started dropping temperatures. The coals were just about done. So instead of loading up more coals, I threw them a 300 degree oven to finish and put into a cooler to rest. The brisket finished about 430pm and rested in the cooler. Party start was 5pm but I know my friends so I knew I had till 6-7ish before a majority of the party was here.

One pork butt pulled. Nice and moist and tasty. I finished it off with a little bit of Eastern Carolina Dip.

The brisket (which was the 3rd one I have ever done) I think I could of trimmed the brisket fat a little bit more. But overall this was the very good. It was nice and moist and tender.

The party went through the flat of the brisket (mainly because I hid the point so I could enjoy it throughout the evening) and 3 of the 4 pork butts! Everybody love it and asked me when the next time I was having another party.

Looks great!

What are you using in terms of pots for the mini WSM's? Are they porcelain coated?

Thanks for sharing,

Dave

I am using the IMUSA 32qt tamale pots. I have them painted with flat black high temp spray paint.

The pulled pork looks fantastic, but it's the brisket that's doin' it for me! That looks amazing, Ren. I'd happily take a plate of that! :thumb:

Thanks guys. 3rd time is a charm for me with briskets. The first two I thought i had it taken off at the right time only to find out it wasn't as tender as I wanted. This one had the perfect texture.

Waking up at six and grabbing a cup of coffee and checking on the smokers is a great way to wake up :)

nice!! i love seeing a brisket cooked on a kettle!!!!

It took me 3 tries to get it right! My roommate was impressed I could smoke a brisket on the kettle. He thought it was only a grill.
