View Full Version : How do you…

Make 20 guys quiet at the same time?

Feed ‘em!!

I took a gamble with the new drum I made this weekend. Last night about 8 pm I put four butts on the UDS, left the shop and went to bed. When I got in this morning at 8 am she was chuggin along at 232 and the butts were in the 150’s. This was the first time I have ever left a barrel unattended overnight and the first time I have cooked for the whole group. Because of the chorus of “when do we eat”, I had to pull the butts a little earlier than I wanted (188 ) and couldn’t rest them as long as I wanted but you coulda heard a pin drop for a few minutes.

All in all I was pretty happy with the results, Brisket is comin up.

Yeah I know, “no pics it didn’t happen”, but I wasn’t sure it woulda been safe to stop for photos. Maybe next time.

What fuel did you use and how much?

Heheee, you got that right. I made some pepper beef with smoked chuck roll and took it in today. The guys went through a package of flour tortillas and half a loaf of Texas toast in about 20 minutes.

I used about 2/3 bag of Royal Oak lump and a few big chunks of pecan. She went 16 hours, no sweat.
