    My 1st attempt at pulled pork and I figure if I screw up 1, I can screw up 2 just as good so here we go.....

    Starting with 2 pork butts (bone in) with a total weight of 22 pounds.
    The rub is Traegers Sweet Rub.
    The wood is Maple.
    Temperature 225

    Rubbed and ready for the smoker.

    In the smoker and letting the thin blue smoke roll...

    I will add here as I progres. Right now it's 3:15 am and time for some sleep.

    Got to sleep at 5:30 am and woke up at 8:30 and it's a good thing, besides having to work the butts are ready to wrap in foil. 1 is 170 and the other is at 165.

    It looks lonely!!!! That's cause I almost forgot to take pics, the other one is wrapped.

    Ok, both butts (I like the sound of that word...LMBO) are wrapped and probed.

    And the smoke is rollin again.....

    Be back with finished pics later...

    Sorry for the large pics, photo bucket is messin with me.....

    Ok, here are the final pics of my 1st pork butt...

    1st butt after sitting in the cooler for 4 hours. Pulled and went to eat at my friends rest. They all loved the pulled pork and it was so juicy I didn't use a finishing sauce.

    1st butt pulled.

    2nd butt after 8 1/2 hours in the cooler. I couldn't believe it was still very hot after all that time. When I opened the foil the butt just opened up like a blooming flower. It was so tender I think I ate a pound of it while I was pulling it.

    2nd butt pulled.

    Those things you see are bear paws and they worked out FANTASTIC!!!!!
    They make pulling so easy and quick it's probably illegal to use them!!!![​IMG]

    So all in all my 1st pulled pork was a great success and I got lot's of sammiches to make....[​IMG]
