Round 2 on the UDS - Pork Butt

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

First cook of yard bird was a hit that I decided to try a longer smoke, so yesterday I was up at 5 to fire up the UDS.  Rubbed the 10lb butt the night before and let it rest overnight.  Filled the basket to the top with coals and put 2 small pecan logs in there.  By 6:30, the butt was on and UDS steadily held its 225 degrees which still amazes me.  It hit 165 degrees about 6-7 hours in, so I took a pic and foiled it.  I pulled it at right about 200 and wrapped it and threw it in a cooler for an hour to let it rest.  It fell apart which again means....happy wife :)  Next time, to make the effort worth it, I will cook 2 or 3 at a time as I can vac seal 2lb portions and freeze them very easily which is pretty nice.  Ok, some Q-view.....

 

The sweet spot:

The setup (farther from the house to help with smoky living areas!)

6 hours in (Sorry, no pics before this as I was too much in a hurry to get it on the pit)

Amazing how much "fuel" remains after 12 hours of smoking:

Looking good Pulled Pork is my favorite smoke until the kids come back from my parents I just don't have enough people to cook for.  I am stoked that you are enjoying the UDS....

Nice BUTT, looks good!

Did you try Jeff's finishing sauce, it really adds that extra something. I'm from Texas and wanted to stir things up a bit, by not serving a Texas style pulled pork.

Also, how long was the smoke, what was your total time?

It went on at 6:30 AM and was off and in the ice chest all wrapped up around 4:45, so a little over 10 hours.  I let it rest for an hour and then opened the foil and gave it 15 mins to breath and then pulled bone and chopped.  I havent tried that sauce yet, but I take it that it is good stuff?

Great looking Pork. Saturday I just smoked 3-9# pork butts for a party. In my UDS it took me 91/2 hours to reach 160. I did the same as you. At 200 I wrapped them in a towel and into the ice chest for 2 hours. When I pulled them they just fell apart and were still hot. After 16 hours I still had at least 1/4  a basket  of charcoal.
