    Frozen Butt Bowl..

    Pork Butts were 1.29/lb this week. Time to get busy.

    6 in the office freezer.
    4 more in my upright freezer. (yeah, I know.............)
    And 3 I picked up on the way home.




    The usual suspects... (and numb fingers)




    14 hours later... WA LAA.




    The MAK butts came along a few hours later. All piled in the Nebraskan Cambro stack.




    Pull, pull, pull, weigh, package, pull, pull.




    Last 4 went on around 1 this morning, and finished around Noon. Lots of grease...

    I need a nap!

    Her Spaghetti and Patty Melts are pretty good. I'm not a quesadilla fan. Too much cheese.
    I don't mind pulling them by hand. Only takes a couple minutes per butt. Then I can pick out any undesirable looking pieces/parts..

    Just inventorying the freezer.. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to haul all of this to the office tomorrow. I might just put 3 big coolers in the truck and load it now. Heading into the 20s tonight..

    Load 'em up!

    It's headed into the 20s tonight, so I opted to load my truck now instead of 5:30 tomorrow morning.

    The players...



    4 down the front left side hold 4.75 lbs each. 6 next to them hold 5 lbs each. The 3 across the back (4 lbs, 4.75 lbs and a hefty 9.5 lbs) aren't frozen, as they will go on the lunch line tomorrow.


    After a bit of ciphering (and trips up/down the attic ladder), I came up with this.

    6 into the Cambro.



    The rest into my big rolling Igloo cooler. I jammed some towels around the buckets to keep everything in tight.




    Oh, and you can't serve 67 ( ) pounds of pulled pork without a bit of..

    I agree with you squirt as far as the hand pulling. I bought the bear claws and used them for 30 seconds before aborting and dawning the gloves to pull with my hands.
