How much do I need?One of the most asked questions we have for customers that do not order often is "How much do I need to feed X?" A couple things go into determining just how much to order: 1) Are you serving multiple meats, 2) Are you having sides and 3) How big of an appetite do your folks have? For a rule of thumb, you can use the following guidlines: If serving a single meat and sides, figure 6 oz of meat per person If serving multiple meats and sides, figure 4 oz of each meat per person If serving a single side, figure 6 oz per person If serving multiple sides, figure 3-4 oz of each side per person Add 2 oz of each meat and side per person for larger appetites Where this is by no means a cut and dried science, at least it will get you in the ball park!
Whats the best way to re-heat my foods?One of the best things we can provide our customers is fresh, delicious smoked meats and sides. Sometimes, it's just not possible to have food fresh off the smoker. Because of that, we have trialed and tested various methods for reheating our food that will deliver a product with quality that will rival fresh off the smoker. Whether you are taking your purchase straight home and tearing into it, or have purchased enough to freeze and get your through until our next event, following these simple step will ensure you have great tasting BBQ, any time you are ready for it. For best results, and if you have one availalbe, re vacuum seal any leftovers. For Pulled Pork and Brisket DO NOT OPEN THE BAG Use a pot large enough to allow the bag to be completely submerged. Fill the pot with water until the bag is completely submerged. Over medium heat, heat until the water just begins to steam, but does not boil (You are shooting for a water temp of about 165-170 degrees). Leave the bag in the pot for about 15 minutes (for 2-3 pound bags) to 25 minutes (for 5 pound bags). Carefully remove the bag from the water, pat dry with a dish towel (BE CAREFUL, BAG WILL BE HOT AND HAVE WATER DROPLETS CLINGING TO IT). Open, serve and enjoy! (Note: Pulled Pork needs to be “fluffed” before serving, stir gently with a fork to break apart the large pieces.). For Ribs If you have a pot (or electric roaster) large enough, you can follow the directions above If no pot is available, pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees. Place thawed unopen bag on a cookie sheet and place in the oven until heated through (approx. 20-30 minutes). Carefully open and remove ribs from the bag and place back on the cookie sheet for an additional 5 minutes. Cut them apart and share the goodness (or keep it all for yourself!). For Hot Sides Empty your sides into a covered microwavable container. If re-heating Smoked Mac and Cheese, add a splash of milk. Heat on high for 60 seconds. Stir. Heat an additional 30 seconds. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until desired temperature has been reached (minimum of 165 degrees recomeended).
