Funny WBH brought this up today. A long series of small stupid acts led to me doing a complete clean and search of my desk for the 1st time in 20+ years. In amongst the debris and disarray I came upon an old notebook full of recipes from my grandmother.

Looking forward to trying a couple.

The search was unsuccessful.

Will do, thanks. I thought there was a couple threads around here about how to cook some delicious butt.

Awaiting Jake's report.

I have been slated to cook for one of my wife's friend's son's grad party on Saturday the 29th for a few months now. Pulled pork, so should be pretty easy to not screw up. However, I knew I might have to travel the week before for work. I had 2 client workshops lined up. Naturally, both are insisting that the workshop be that week. So I have to go to Toronto on Monday - Wed, then to Chicago and home on Friday, landing at like 9. No idea how I'm going to pull this off but I intend to. I guess I will shop on Sunday before I leave and just cook Friday night, or take the trailer onsite early Saturday AM. It's gonna be a long week.

I don't do sides unless I'm hosting at my house. Even then, I try my best to farm them out.

WBH come cater my wedding. That sounds fucking delicious!

_________________
SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Wow! Mouth watering. How long has it been in there? Did you have to add more coal? Please more pictures. Well done.

Cooked it around eight hours. I had it going good and left for a couple hours. Coals were about done and down to less than 200 when I got home so had to add more charcoal to get temp up again. Temp was around 350-450 most of the time. I turned meat 180 degrees after taking temp because one side was more done than the other.

No bone. I didn't have any wood so it's strictly charcoal.

I bought that exact grill under a different name 7-8 years ago. My daughter and SiL still use it. The only things I didn't like about it was the grates to hold the charcoal up were a little flimsy as were the hinges on the lid. I think back then it was around $120, at $86 it's a lot of grilling area and a pretty good deal.

Yeah, it's just a metal tray with holes in it now so I'm not sure how long that's going to last.

No bone. I didn't have any wood so it's strictly charcoal.
Hope it turned out good, which it probably did.

My 2 cents for next time:
Bone-in butt. The bone is a built-in doneness thermometer.
Lump hardwood charcoal, not briquets unless Stubbs
Wood chunks. You can find a variety (hickory, apple, cherry, pecan) at Home Depot. Lowes only carries wood chips, which are useless

Stick your tongue on it. If it's burned to the point of blistering, the butt is done.
