I had to do a trial run on a butt prior to Mother's Day to make sure I was happy with what I am going to be serving! So I picked up a 4 lb. boneless pork butt today and here she sits on the smoker. More Qview to follow!
I had one hell of a stall! This 4 lb butt was on from 11am till 8pm! I stuck the probe in her at 4 hrs and she was at 151. She went up to about 161 and just stayed......I finally hit 163 and decided to foil.... About 1 hour after foiling it she broke 170 and cruised along to 205.
BUTT!!!!!!! I must say it was the best pulled pork I have ever had and I enjoyed the extra time I had to soak up some beers!
I used a combination of hickory chucks and apple chips!
I didn't get to rub it down the night before so I decided I'd try mixing 2 tbl of cider vinegar 1 tbl beer and 2 tbl of my spice rub and inject this little concoction into the butt.
Then I gave it a coat of my spice rub.
I also used the finishing sauce mentioned above and that took this pulled pork to the next level!
Well.....I had a great day and I hope ya'll enjoy the qview!
Notes taken from trial run.......
Gonna prolly smoke the night before to ensure dinner is served at 1.
Definitly gonna use a finishing sauce only I will prolly half the crushed red pepper.
Other than that I have to say I think my guests will be very happy come Mother's Day!
