I Like Big Butts

Discussion in 'Pork' started by cwmcintyre, Nov 8, 2014.

  1. After exhaustive research in this forum, I am ready to embark on my first pork butt adventure. I spent all night in the kitchen making the sauces and, at 1:15 in the morning, I am ready to throw 20 pounds of pork butt into the Vision S Pro. Special thanks to @SoFlaQuer for the finishing sauce and Carolina mustard sauce recipes, @simmosez2 for the rub recipe (Pork Perfection), @khuhner for the Memphis sauce recipe and @diamondmarco for the Texas chipotle recipe.

    I have learned so much the past couple months from all of you. Your wisdom is greatly appreciated.

    Here is the first of several Q-View shots to come over the next 16 hours or so.

    Good Smoke and Patience...
  6. Eight and a half hours in. Pretty sure the neighbors can smell what is in store for the, later tonight.
  7. Last couple Q-View pictures. Hit a stall at 172*! that lasted two plus hours. I was prepared for a stall - just not one that long. Ended up foiling since guests were arriving sooner - rather than later. With the foil in place, it came up rather quickly. Removed from Vision S Pro at 199* am
    Nd let rest for about an hour. Attacked with bear claws and applied @SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce. Dinner guests had nothing but great comments and, quite frankly, they all seemed sincere. Thanks to everyone for all of the help getting through this. You guys rock!

  11. Lenny,

    Here are links to the sauce recipes that I used:

    Rub (Pork Perfection): http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/155664/various-rub-recipes

    Finishing Sauce: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/49892/finishing-sauce-for-pulled-pork

    Carolina Mustard Sauce: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/51920/soflaquers-carolina-mustard-sauce

    Memphis Sauce: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/85648/memphis-bbq-sauce-recipe

    Texas Chipotle (second one down in diamondmarco's reply): http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/151839/great-texas-style-bbq-sauce-recipe#post_1087520

    They were all incredible. I think the Texas Chiipotle was my favorite. Next time I will go with an additional chipotle over what the recipe calls for and give it a little more heat. The Carolina mustard sauce was my wife's favorite. We spent a couple of years in Johnson City, TN right after we got married and she developed a taste for that type sauce while we were down there. She said this was the closest thing she has had to the sauce from a little place called Dixie Barbecue that we frequented while in TN. Make any of them and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. 

    B-one and Poseidon, thank you very much for the comments. It was truly a great meal. I made a little extra finishing sauce and it is great for adding to the saucepan when reheating the leftovers.

  12. Thanks for the links I will give them a try they all look good!
