I did our Memorial Day cook for work on Friday. Cooked 5 prime briskets, 6 pork butts, 32 lbs chicken breast, 12 lbs sausage and 35 lbs of pork butt burnt ends. I cooked it all in the vertical cabinet smoker except the chicken. That was done on the large grill. I rub all with Oakridge rubs.

I wet brined the breasts overnight and finished with white sauce when they came off. I started the smoker at 11 pm and the brisket and pork butts came off about 9 am. This worked good as they rested in the cooler I finished the burnt ends and cooked the chicken. I pull all the chicken at 160. Ran the smoker 225-275 during the night.

This was the first time I got prime briskets from out local Sam's and although they were a little small, all bout 11.5 lbs, they worked good.

All tasted excellent.

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

When I cook for work I plan on feeding at least 100. We always have plenty of leftovers which doesn't go to waste.

I do it three times a year. We usually change up the menu somewhat but one item they always require is the chicken. I am always amazed at how many people love the chicken. As stated above I wet brine it overnight and pull it at 160. Yes I check every piece. Then cover in Alabama white sauce.
I also cut each breast in half to prevent over cooking the thin part. It also makes a good serving size when you have all the rest.
