During an open bar at a wedding, my friend hired me to cater his graduation party. It seemed like a great task to embark on. My Dad is like the best pork cooker in the world. So I figured I have been learning from the best. This would be a great way to congratulate my friend and cook some ribs & BBQ on the way.
We got the Boston Butts & ribs from Costco, prepped them with my fathers spicy, but not too spicy, addictive dry rub. And come 7 AM friday morning I lit the first match, and did not finish till 2 PM saturday afternoon. Low and Slow is the only way to go. I’m not going to get too in depth in the entire process but this guys will, «it’s a great read.» He pretty much just tells it how it is, no bullspit. He offers his opinion, the way he does it, and why, also with the techniques of other BBQ masters.
I will tell you that I was pretty happy when I took the first bite. That is a lot of hours to be tending something and a lot of hours to be thinking,”eeeesh, I hope this turns out”. But it was a hit, there were kegs, fireworks, lightning, and good company. A perfect way to celebrate finishing college in 4 years flat(way to go Alex, good hustle), and bringing on the summer parties…..outside. Where they should be.
