Can understand that, I learned to cook at about eight years old due to my mother being quite ill for a time and my father was no cook either. And years of batching it in college and between marriages.

I usually use any one of a few rubs that I like and some are quite a bit different from the others so a light salting may be in order.

Ordinary table salt lightly sprinkled on the outside with all fat trimmed as well as a generous mixed injection of salt, water, apple juice and apple cider vinegar. I've tried it here at home with good results. Nothing earth moving just a little flavor profile change as well being very juicy after a good rest in a cooler

I'll smoke till 160* on my new drum then foil wrap in a steam table pan till 205*.

Pull.

Know fat, know flavor. No fat, no flavor.

I tried going vegan, but then realized it was a big missed steak.

You got this, Denny. Cooking for a group can be easier than for just a few. Just more dishes to wash! You know where you can get help and advise, so knock this out!

I did a small butt yesterday on the drum ' cause I had some leftover slaw and was near the bottom of the jar of one of my favorite rubs and had a jug of Sweet Baby Ray's on the door of the 'fridge as well

A generous application of RRD

https://www.richsriverdirtbbqrubandseasoning.com/product-page/sweet

over charcoal for 5 hours then finished in the oven @ 275 till it hit 205*. and dumped on Kaiser roll with slaw wound up being one of the best BBQ bites I've done in recent memory.

The SBR on top of the pork rubbed with RRD just plain popped. I think I'll take at least one butt done this way to the gathering. Thinking a slice of onion up top would have been tasty as well..

i did all my kids grad parties, family reunions, etc. most i ever did was for my boys grad party. 18 racks of ribs, 3 pork shoulders, 2 hams, 6 dozen stuffed cabbage, pans of ziti, mac and cheese and baked beans and all kinds of salads and desserts. i still get people telling me that was the best grad party they ever went to. it cost me about 1000 bucks between the food and the tent rental. i had fun but it was a long day.
