    Picked up a 7.6 lb. pork butt at the store yesterday.... couldn't resist. [​IMG]

    I injected it with a mix of Sweet Baby Rays, cider vinegar, Tony Chicharos, and apple juice. Let it sit in the fridge for 6 or 7 hrs. Concoted up a rub of brown sugar, paprika, dry mustard, cayanne powder, Tony Chicharo's, and some dry onion soup mix. (wife had made some oatmeal butterscotch bars for desert ealier.... they jumped into the picture [​IMG])

    Slathered the butt with some yellow mustard and as much rub as it would hold.

    .... 10 hrs. later and ready to wrap it up in some foil (minus a little piece I "sampled off of one of the ends).

    .... will post some updates in a few hours.... mmmmm!

    BTW: I just realized, this place has more good looking butts than Hugh Hefner's house!

    Now thats too cool with the squirrels but you might watch out for that crazied women. I have heard that she's really into that VooDoo stuff now. But your butt looks pretty good but I would like to see the finished pics.

    So after finally escaping the clutches of the Jedi Mind Bending Secret Service Squirrels (JMBSSS), I finally rememberd that I had one last picture to post of the butt after it got done with another 4 hrs. wrapped in the foil, followed by 2 hrs. resting in a towel filled cooler. The blurry parts of the photo are actually where the steam was coming off of it! Notice the bone about to fall out all on its own. It pulled beutifully! Just firm enough to stay in nice chunks, tender enough to cut with a fork, and the bark still had a nice texture without being mushy.

    Are you sure it's safe?

    You saw the SST facility!

    Did you see any JMBSSS members hanging around your yard?[​IMG]
