I picked these two butts up this afternoon on my way home from work. I work at a tuxedo rental shop so we are super busy with prom tuxes this time of year. Needless to say I put in 55 hours so far(in for another 5 tomorrow) and I didn't have time to do my usual pre rub and set in the fridge over night. Instead I did the same trick I tried last time and mixed some cider vinegar with my dry rub and injected them.
Hope you enjoy the view and more will follow!
Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there!
Pickle roll-up's MMMMMMMMMMMMMM
My lil' guy and his B-Day present.....E300 electric scooter that I took for a little test drive last night!
My beautiful wife and Mother to our three awesome kids! Happy Mother's Day baby!
OK here is how this went down......The butts went on at 6 o clock pm saturday night. I had planned on just staying up till they were done and sleeping in this morning. That didn't happen. My neighbor had his 50th B-Day party last night so my wife and I went over there for awhile while the butts were smoking. Several beers and a few jello shots later and it was midnight and I was kinda sleepy. I told my wife we should take a lil nap and I would get up at 3 am to check the smoker. I set 2 alarms for 3 am and 3:15 and slept through them both. Woke up at 6 and was freakin' out about my butts. The positive thing was I had moved all my hot coals towards the air intake and added a bunch of lump to kick in the minion method for a long burn. When I went out to check the butts they were almost to 199 and I had a half load of charcoal still burning(thank GOD). So at that point I just wanted to go back to sleep so I pulled the butts, panned them, covered with foil and threw them in the over to finish them off. After my extended nap.....AKA full nights sleep the butts were done and I had to go to work on Mother's Day/my son's 9th B-Day. While I was at work all our friends and family enjoyed my pulled pork. My wife said everyone loved it! The money shot of my plate is of what was left over when I got home at 4:30 this afternoon. All in all I had fun smoking them and enjoyed the reheated left overs! Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday!
