    I'm thinking about trying to do some pulled pork for the 4th. I've done it once, but it was a while back and I can't remember exactly how I did it. I'm also thinking about doing a brisket and some ribs, but I'll post about that in the other sections. (Can these be done at the same temp on the same grill?)

    How do you do pulled pork? Can someone give me a good step by step guide? I have a bunch of people coming over and don't want to screw this up. You guys are my secret weapon, lol.

    Also, any good "fall off the bone" ribs recipes?

    I going to hit the store after work today and grab everything, so please help.

    Butts will take 12 + hours so looks like your in for an all nighter to get it done. My last one took 17 hours.

    I put mine in a pan in the smoker. It will catch all the juice ( I defat the juice and pour it back over the pulled pork when its all done)

    and if its in the pan all you have to do is put some foil over the pan when the IT gets around 165. If you want more bark don't foil.

    it will take longer but the nice bark is worth it. If your short on time then foil it will speed up the cooking. Take it to 205 IT. Then put the butt

    in a cooler. wrap in foil. if its in the pan just put pan in the cooler with foil across the pan. then fill the cooler with old blankets or towels.

    leave it in there for 3+ hours. As far as cooking temp I have done them at 225 up to 350.

    if you need more info just PM me.

    good luck !!

    Awesome thanks guys! I'm using a chargriller with side firebox and a stoker to keep the temp steady.
