So today I attempted to smoke a pork butt for the first time using my Grillpro propane smoker. The smoker came with it's own recipe for pulled pork and it called for the meat to be cooked at 200 F for about 1.5 hrs/lb - in this case it worked out to 5 hours of total cook time.
I had done pulled pork in the oven many times using a dutch oven with tremendous results, usually running the oven around 220 F for the same amount of time.
So I figured what the heck, both oven and smoker cook times/temps were roughly the same so away I went . . .
When the 5 hours were up I opened the cabinet and pulled out a beautiful, fragrant hunk of delicious meat. Took it inside, stabbed it with a couple of forks to pull it apart and . . . no dice! The meat was solid! Would not "pull" in any direction!
Perplexed and wondering if it wasn't done yet I decided to quarter it to see what the inside looked like. Well the meat was white and moist and obviously cooked all the way through yet instead of pulled pork I got myself a nice little pork roast.
So now I join these forums to ask you, the experts, what the heck did I do wrong???
Thanks in advance for your time.
