    Default Lotsa butt cooks, how do I prepare in advance?

    Ok, my niece is graduating this spring and wants pulled pork. Another family member has a large grill in an old fuel oil tank. He ďhot smokesĒ. My niece has made it known she prefers my pork over his and wants me to do the pulled pork. Iíve got a 1400. Im thinking weíre going to be on the order of 200 folks. Iím thinking half a pound a piece, plus sides (not my problem), but thatís still gonna be like 15 butts.

    Any thoughts for me on preparing that kind of quantity? The only thing I can think of is to some as many as I can at a time and somehow freeze or refrigerate, but Iím afraid of drying out and trying to rehear that much.

    Any guidance from my big quantity/food truck/restaurant preparers, or anyone else?
