The most recent BBQ Broker adventure brought me back to the 908 Cigar Lounge at the Woburn Elks for the annual Smoke & Swine to benefit the Veterans. In years past, I’ve attended this event but this year was extra special as they asked me, along with a couple of my brothers in BBQ, to cook for the guest list of about 125 people. It was a couple days of shopping and prep and an overnight cook, but we pulled off an extremely successful party! Brisket, pulled pork, ribs and pork belly burnt ends were the main event, but we also served up coleslaw, baked beans and cornbread. As always, the brisket stole the show! An even bigger bonus to the night is that we were able to raise $7,400 for the Veterans Committee. I’m already looking forward to next year!
