2:15....Just probed the butt and she is sitting at 161 after 3 hours 45 minutes.
I also have a batch of BBQ sauce going. I took my recipe X5 I'll be canning 2 pints of the extra.
And if I am gonna have the smoker going I can't go with out some ABT's!
The one pint of BBQ sauce in a water bath for canning.
Not the greatest pic....Sun was at my back...But the ABT's were on and I added a lil extra brown sugar to the ribs...I was out of foil for some unknown reason so what better reason than to try spares no foil!
Spares slathered in sauce and ready for slicing!
Not quite the smoke ring I was looking for.....
Ladies and Gentlemen.................The Money Shot! Also featured are home grown heirloom tomatoes, garden green beans from the slow cooker with ham and red potatoes, tweaked out Bush's baked beans, and a baked tater(2 spuds....I know seems odd, but, I love my taters)!
My brother in law says.................."You don't need teeth to eat Crezy Jake's Ribs!"
And no.....I haven't forgot to give you an update on the butt....Here it is sitting at 197. And again since I was out of foil there was no better time to try pork butt no foil! The bark looks amazing!
The butt finished while we ate some tasty ribs. I pulled it at 209 at 5:30pm. Then I let it rest till about 8:45(the pulled pork is tomorrow night's dinner). Here is the end result after pulling....
Here is my view on the no foil ribs and butt......I thought the ribs a little bit more pull than I like. They were still extremely tender but I like em with a slight pull. The bark however was amazing! So, next time I am going to do a 3-1-2 method. The butt however I WILL NEVER FOIL AGAIN! I like the faster cook time when foiled but I loved the bark I had on the no foil method. Man the bark was so good it was hard not to eat it all while I was pulling it! Well, I hope you enjoyed! I know I did!
