Wifes Birthday BBQ (w/ Bear View)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Wife turned the big 4-0 this weekend.  So had to do a smoke for the family festivities.  Picked up a Brisket Flat and a pre boned Pork Shoulder for pulled pork.  I like to marinate the pork before I smoke it, this time I used OJ, Old Bay, and a little Lowery’s and soaked it for 24 hours.

I used Jeff's Rub and wrapped them for a nap in the fridge.  Sorry I couldn't get that picture to load properly. 

After a night in the fridge they hit the smoker.

Using Kingsford Mesquite charcoal and apple wood.

 

I let them hit 160 IT pulled them foiled them and put them in the oven at 225 so I could get some sleep.  Once they hit 200 IT I double wrapped and put into a cooler until party time.

Sorry I didn't remember to take a pick of the shoulder before I put into the oven.

Brisket made very good sammies, I got the PP a little dry, this could have been due to the fact that I forgot to set the audible alarm on my thermometer, so I am not exactly sure how long I left it under heat after the meat hit 200.  But when mixed with Jeff's BBQ Sauce it tasted Fantastic.  The Brisket needed nothing, was tender and very juicy. 

 

There was very little left when the party was over, so no one complained, was a good time.  Thanks for looking.

Thank you!



I kept mine at 225 for the cooking temp.  Time just depends on the meat it's self.  Jeff has a guesstimate about all types of meat on the main site.  Check it out, it is a good guid.  Time also changes if you foil or not.
