  1. but not to cooking...ribs and brisket are my specialties largely due to my rub concoctions I guess....developed the rubs over the years...but lately been adding Black Jack to them for texture and smoothness...

    Did my first Boston Butt yesterday..on my MasterBuilt Propane smoker...
    turned out edible...but the internal temp...was 190 versus a dersired 165
    or thereabouts...narrowly avoided disaster methinks...oh well...

    Ribs and chicken and salmon I do on on a CharBroil propane grill...and the neighbors flock around for my chipotle sauce and rub....use limes almost incessantly as well...but then this is the Southwest...jalapena poppers are also delightful...I hardly cook anything anymore without chipotle...

    Use mesquite to smoke the butt with...well looking forward to learning a lot from this site...Blessings and thanks in advance...Gila Jorge

    Gila, Welcome to the SMF. Your 190 internal temp sounds okay to me. (for pulling many here go 195-205) There is lot of info here so ask questions and take a look around.

    Here is a link to a pulled pork how to in the pork section.

    190° should not be bad. For pulled pork I take my butts to 200°F. Did it taste good?

    Take care, have fun, and do good!
