Smoke-a-Thon IV: It Begins…Plus, a Giveaway!


It’s time for the annual guessing game! How many pounds of pork do I have in my fridge right now?


For Smoke-a-Thon IV: The Ass Kicker, she is nigh upon us.


And that means PORK.


And some chicken and veg. But mostly, PORK.


If you can tell me – closest without going over – how many pounds of pork are currently in my fridge, you could win fabulous cash prizes!


Okay, not really. But you CAN win this fabulous journal, made from the covers of a completely inappropriately-for-the-occasion named cookbook from the 70s, The Forget-About-Meat Cookbook, courtesy of Ex Libris Anonymous journals. Awesome covers, acid free paper, with bonus pages from the book itself thrown in. One of a kind, just like the Smoke-a-Thon.

Leave your answer in the comments, and may the best guestimator win! Open ’til Sunday at 10pm.

  1. I’m going with 63 pounds..

    so what are you going to do if random people start trying to fly in for your porkening? *remembers reading about last year & drools*

  2. Lets see…. I had 4 whole shoulders in mine LAST weekend… that was 38 lbs… I’m going to go with 30.

    Happy Porkmorial Day weekend

  3. 33.5 LBS.

    My favorite (childhood) book on Ex Libris is currently in the neighborhood of $220.

    I desperately want to read and own it again, but that’s a pretty fucking high price for someone to put on my memories, the bastards. I curse them.

  4. I say 41 pounds, and hope against hope that I win…. but I would also like a sliver of the smoked swine too… THAT would be awesome!

  5. I’m saying 44 pounds. And in a shameless pandering for support here, I’m asking everyone to click over to and vote for my French toast in this week’s contest. Because I learned from Michelle that one should always use challah to make French toast and for that reason, even if there were no others, she rocks!

  6. I was going to guess 36 but that’s taken so I’m guessing…31.75 lbs. I so wish I was going to be there. Last years smoke-a-thon sounded amazing!

  7. I think everyone is woefully underestimating your dedication to pork! I’m going to estimate that you’ve got 63 pounds of porkiliciousness stored away for the event. I’m supposed to go to Ohio this weekend, but a short detour in Jersey looks to be in order…

  8. I’m going to say 37. I just inherited my late fathers coveted Weber water smoker in which we will be doing a whole turkey with a rack of ribs draped over it like a porky baby blanket. What’s better than smoked turkey? Smoked turkey that tastes like pork!

  9. I will guess low with 17.5 pounds. The pork sounds delish but will you send whatever is being made with all the heavy cream my way? Please…

  11. I’m gonna throw caution to the wind and say 39 pounds. I’m in PA, Michelle, and if I could find my way to your house, I’d crash the porkening. Seriously….

  13. 52.4 lbs…and getting ready to eat some manyana as we honor the fallen…right, that’s what this holiday is about? The men and women in uniform? A memorable smoke-a-thon sounds like the perfect way to salute those who fought for our right to sit in backyards, and enjoy the long weekend that officially heralds the start of summer!
