My first Pulled Pork with Q-view

Discussion in 'Pork' started by custom99, Oct 29, 2011.

  1. I have been wanting to make some Pulled Pork since I got addicted to smoking. I decided to make some for the Pittsburgh Steelers game on Sunday, Thanks to the help from some great members on here I have some totally incredible Pulled Pork on the counter right now. TANK, thanks for the sauce recipe. The family loves it.

    I started out with 10 pound butt and cut it in half to help with cooking time. I used a rub of brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika, BBQ spice, minced onion, and chili powder. Into the smoker at 230 degrees at 3 pm with some hickory.

    After hitting 100 degrees internal I started spraying a mixture of apple juice and crown royal every half hour.

    Once I hit 165 internal I wrapped in foil and poured some of my juice/ whiskey combo in with the meat.

    9 hours later I hit 195 with smoker temps at 230-240 all day.

    I wrapped the meat in towels and let rest for one hour in the microwave. After cooling slightly I pulled it. It just fell apart in my fingers. It was so juicy and flavorful that I could have skipped the finishing sauce, but since I already made it earlier I used it. This is some of the best pulled pork I have ever had. My son is a major fan of pulled pork but could not stay awake long enough to try the finished product. This is one that I would not change even one thing the next time I make it. Now the trick is to to see if any even makes it until game time Sunday when everybody shows up.

     Sorry about the pics. I have been using the phones camera since I have been having battery problems with the digital camera.

    Looks good.  I am glad you like the sauce.  I think pulled pork is always better the day after so you are in for a treat.
     
  10. Thanks all for the nice comments. Mama, the company I work for is based out of Johnstown. They had 8 inches of snow overnight. I could never handle that amount of snow.

    I don't know if it was quite 8" but pretty darn close. That real wet sloppy stuff, that you have to slow down in when you drive. I work in Johnstown, have about a 35 minute drive to work, today was  more like 45. It will probably be in the 60's next weekend.

  18. This is a copy of the recipe sent to me by Tank. We really like it. I put this on right after pulling and we are also going to have some bottled sauce out for choices for everyone.

      West Carolina Vinegar Sauce:
    2 c. cider vinegar
    1/2 c plus 2 tbsp ketchup
    1/4 c firm packed brown sugar
    5 tsp salt
    4 tsp hot red pepper flakes
    1 tsp ground black pepper
    1 tsp ground white pepper
    - Combine all ingredients and whisk together. Use immediately or refrigerate overnight for more developed taste

    Do you boil or heat it first or just stir and use?

    PP looks nice!  I especially like the whiskey spray.  Not sure if I would be able to go the whole time without sampling from the bottle!!
