1st Annual Brandon Wrestling Smoked Boston Butt Sale

On February 2, 2018 we had our 1st Annual Brandon Wrestling Smoked Boston Butt Sale.  As part of this fundraiser, we sold over 170 pork butts with 65 of them being donated to Liberty Manor!

The Boston Pork Butts were smoked over 8 hours which resulted with each Pork Butt having a crunchy bark but tender and easy to pull apart.  Each one was then cooled and then vacuum sealed so that they can be frozen.

Due to the high number of Pork Butts we had to run the smoker twice for a total of 18 hours.  We used 372 lbs of charcoal and 200 lbs of oak.  Over 1,360lbs of Pork Butts was cooked!

Proceeds went to support the Brandon Wrestling Team.

Thank you all once again for helping in making this a successful event!  We look forward to the 2nd Annual Brandon Wrestling Smoked Boston Butt Sale in early 2019!
