Spent the day running around get "stuff" for the July 4 Pig Picking. Smoking a 130 pd pig.


Started the day at Lowes hardware getting 10 pags of charcoal and some hickory chunks. The charcoal was buy one get one free! Will be running a DO table, my WSM and the pig smoker.




Stuff to make rubs, sauces, and the Saturday night dinner.


The fridge in the garage is full of butts, brisket, cabbage, and assorted stuff for the party!

Tomorrow I pick up the cooker and make the sauces. I'm getting excited and ready to cook a pig.

Will keep you posted.

DAMMMMMN, Dan
You need a third member under that bottom shelf. Shocked
I'm glad all my stuff fit into 2 - 150 qt coolers.
Got beans on now. Smoke tomorrow, rest for a day in the fridge. Turds for the cook tonight. Plenty of beer. And neighbor wants a smoked meat loaf tonight.
No rest for us Marines, huh Dan. Laughing They must want the best. Very Happy

Now that is a pile of groceries! where's the pig? Good luck and most importantly; when everything is piling up on you, you're a bit in the weeds one cooker running hot, one cooker running cold, eyes bloodshot from the smoke, fingertips burnt to hell...Remember, you've been through all this before and this is what we do and love! Of course everything will be fine, and the food great. You are a pro after all!

I think your beer:food ratio is a little low but you do have plenty of charcoal.

Brinnie, thanks brother I hope all is well with you.

Hell Fire Grill, Haaaaaa! I'll see what I can do about that! Very Happy

Left early this morning to go pick up the cooker.






When I called the place a month or so ago asking if they had a smoker (not a super cooker) for rent I was told the cooker has a water pan. Given I cannot find a smoker in this area to rent it sounded like the closest thing I could find to a smoker. When I got there today the "water pan" is what I would call a drip pan. Roll with it!




Drip pan drain


Temp gauge.


After coming back from picking the cooker up I started making the three sauces for the picnic.


First batch.


Second batch...habanero sauce.




Third batch.


Bottled in gallon jugs. I have pump dispensors when ready to serve. Need to make another batch of mustard sauce.


After the sauces made up a huge batch of rub for the butts.


Butts and briskets...its a beautiful thang!




First of three briskets.


Washed, rubbed, and wrapped.


After rubbing the meat then I loaded the cookers on the trailer. There are ten bags of charcoal in the cooker, two bags of hickory, five grates, a shovel, a fire stick, and a lid to a kettle. Packed in there very nicely!


Will use the kettle to grill the corn on the cob and to keep some coal going to feed the cooker.


Will add the coolers and other stuff in the morning and tie her down.


Been a full and busy day!

Will keep you posted.

Thanks Guys!

Rare Breed, I got these at Wegmans. I called the butcher downtown F'burg asking if they have bigger briskets. I was told they do in the 12-15 pound range. So, next time I'll go there. Where do you get your brisket?

Ready to roll gear all loaded up!






Go Skins!


Back seat of the jeep....white vinegar to wash the pig, DO shovel, claws, DOs and other stuff.

See you guys Monday! Yeeeeehaaaaawwwwwwwwwww! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

HAPPY FOURTH Ringers!!!!!!!!
