Short Sweet and to the Pork! (lol... I'm punny)

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Our local cash and carry started to carry bone in pork butt in a two pack cryovac so I thought I would give it a try. Picked up a 17 lb. bag and the results are this:


Butt #1: Rub was 1C brown sugar, 3 Tbs. of very spicy Jerk rub, and 2 Tbs. of kosher salt.




Summary: This is a definate keeper! The bark was sweet and spicy, the meat was very juicy. Super tastey!



Butt #2: Rub was 1C brown sugar, 4 Tbs. Old Bay Seasoning, 2 Tbs. fresh black pepper.




Summary: Very juicy but not as much flavor as the other rub. Still very tastey and would be any chain BBQ joint hands down.

I really like the butts both of them and that old bay rub sounds alittle familiar to me.

Man looks great, I like Old Bay taste and smell. Usually I just put it in my crab boil along with a bag of  Zatarains boil.


Think I will try a little bit added to my rub.

Thanks everybody!


I found adding Old Bay to a rub really is a nice way to get some additional flavor into it, I use it in place of cellary salt/seed since it has some cellary salt in it. It did OK by itself in the rub, but it didn't stand out after the butt was cooked. I also like using Old Bay on chops and just pan frying them with a little EVOO - that is very tastey!


The winner was definately the Jerk seasoning butt. I could have just eaten all the bark and been happy... lol.
