    Mustard and homemade rub. Spent the night in the fridge. Lit the pit at 0545 this morning. Meat on at 0605 with apple wood.

    1118--- internal temp 144 degrees.
    1450--- internal temp 165 degrees. Pulled from smoke, placed in pan that had been under it all smoke with drippings and apple juice. Double foiled and back in smoker.
    1703--- internal temp 203 degrees. Pulled and wrapped. Resting in cooler now.
    I'll post a comment with the finished product after I pull it after while. Many thanks to Bearcarver for the step by step I followed on this smoke. Awesome guy!

    Pulled great. Didn't even need the wolverine claws. Mynoldest son says it's better than Log Cabin which is our best local BBQ place. Made a Lexington style sauce to go on it on the Sammie's and we have 2 kinds of slaw because we are a house divided on that front.

    That's a delicious looking butt!  I'll bet it made some mighty tasty pulled pork sammies!

    Great first attempt!

    My wife has spent months trying to develop the perfect coleslaw for BBQ sandwiches. She just recently achieved success. You don't see or hear about many people on this forum using it, but to me, you just can't beat a BBQ sandwich with a few shots of Texas Pete hot sauce and a scoop of coleslaw on a sesame seed bun![​IMG]

    I grew up with mayo based coleslaw but my wife grew up with red vinegar based slaw so we had both. And I'm a fan of meat, coleslaw and Texas Pete too. Best way to do it.
