Hello all! This weekend, I took the plunge and did my first pork butt. Actually, you'd probably call it more of a butt-let since it was only 3 lbs and a bit. I figured it would take 1.5 to 2 hours per pound and I had it on the smoker for about 5 hours. I have no idea if it plateaued, or what temp it was when I took it off. And since it was my first one, I might have been a bit in a hurry to consider it Done. But it pulled nicely (as far as I know, since I've never had pulled pork before) and had good bark. Yeah, yeah, I know: pics, or it didn't happen So here's some questions: I've got two people to eat this stuff and this three pounder is going to make three meals for us. I picked up this small chunk of meat at the grocery store because I wanted to try smoking it and it was on sale. But its about a quarter of the amount of meat I'd get in the cryovac butt packs at the wholesaler stores which are a much better price per pound. So, what am I going to do with the leftovers? (Other than sending them to one of you?) How does pulled pork freeze? Should I freeze it before or after pulling it? I need to find a better rub than I used, which is the Southern Succor Rub from the Smoke and Spice cookbook. It had waay too much black pepper and cayenne in it for my taste. Any suggestions for other things to put in my rubs? Has anybody used green chile pepper powder in a smoking rub? And the big question: Should I try again? I thought the finished pulled pork was okay, but nothing to rave about. If you love pulled pork, what is it you love about it? Any suggestions about things I need to do to make mine better?
