3-25-2010 "Hogmaster Chairmen" Steve Sturm works with a fellow Troop 11 father on flipping over 2,500 pounds of Boston Butt pork shoulder.
Boy Scouts and troop leaders gathered at the Providence United Methodist Church parking lot at 4 o'clock Wednesday morning to begin barbecuing over 2,500 pounds of Boston Butt pork shoulder. A total of 4,000 pounds of pork, caked in a zesty homemade rub, marinated in bags Wednesday night in preparation for the Thursday-Friday barbecue marathon. The 2,500 pounds of barbecue smoked on Thursday will be processed and sold by the pound on Friday, when the additional 1,500 pounds of meat will be cooked on site. The barbecue is sold at $9.00 per pound. The troop also sells barbecue sauce for $4.00 a jar. Due to the event's popularity, over 700 pounds of meat has been set aside for pre-order pickups.
The barbecue is available for purchase by the pound on Friday from 11am-8pm and on Saturday from 8am-1pm. In addition to buying by the pound, the troop will be selling by the plate- with all the fixins- from 11am-2pm and again from 4pm-7pm. Folks are welcome to dine inside of the church from 4pm-7pm.
The money raised is distributed between the Scout Council, Providence Methodist Church, but mainly goes towards sending the boys of Troop 11 to scout camps and other scouting events.
The Boy Scout Troop 11 is cooking up barbecue today as a fund raiser. We drop in and sniff the sweet smell of southern barbecue. They are at Providence Methodist Church 2810 Providence Rd. at the intersection with Sharon Amity Rd.
