Prepping for the big day!

Postby Txdragon » Thu May 10, 2018 10:22 am

5 briskets, 40 lbs of chicken breast, 12 lbs of pintos, 12 lbs of rice, 4 gallons of cheese dip, 10 lbs of pico de gallo, 500 tortillas.

This is my list for the wedding I will be cooking for this saturday. I've already begun the beans and will start the brisket rubdown today. That gets put on the smokers tomorrow. I will start marinating the chicken either today or early tomorrow morning. They want brisket tacos, cilantro lime chicken tacos, refried beans and spanish rice. Chips and queso as well. I am just cooking and setup, no service required (thank goodness because it doesn't pay that well lol) Given that I have to roll out 3/4 of those tortillas myself, I still don't think i'm charging enough :lol: It's for a friend though and they wanted an easy menu, so I was happy to keep it in their budget. There will be pics here along the way, no doubt! Stay tuned!

When is the sampling? I mean, you need us to check quality, right? 'Cause I can be there....In a New York minute!

Good luck with the cook!

I am down to only 1 smoker, so the briskets get started tonight. Oklahoma Joe needs to hit a home run! The 2 smallest briskets go on now. 11.5 pounder, and 13 pounder. The 3 remaining are 15, 15.5 and juuust shy of 19lbs.

4 hours in, 225 degrees. Looking pretty good so far. They should be ready to pull about 3am or so. I'll let them rest in the oven while I get a nap in.

The halfway pics I posted up a bit ago are the only ones so far. It is 520am for me now and I'm still up waiting on these 2. Lol! Just added a chimney of lump after I dozed off for a brief nap. Temp dropped to 200 after my last check at 4am. :shock: I'm hoping to get the others on before 9am.
