Today's Boston Butt Smoke

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

 

    Been away from the forum for awhile,wanted to get back into the smoke scene with an 8 lb Boston Butt today for pulled pork.I used Billbo's red rub on it last night and let it sit in the fridge overnight.Got up early and fired up the MES this morning and put it in.Am using Pitmaster choice blend with the AMNPS.Am going to try and get a decent bark this time so did not place inside the pan as I usually do.Will see what happens,I'll update as the project progresses.

Thanks all for the kind words!IT is perking along at 148,I have been spritzing hourly with applejuice.went out a little while ago and picked up a pair of bear claws so I can handle these larger cuts of meat easier.Sure beats trying to use a couple pair of tongs and damaging the bark!Can also use to pull the pork too!I have gained a garage fridge since the last time I smoked something so plenty of room to freeze and stash left-overs now.I saw early on if one gets into this hobby very deep additional fridge/freezer space is almost a necessity.I can now think about brining for bacon and other projects that are just not practical with a single fridge household.

To follow up,

 

   This project took a total of 15 hours,including 1 hour of rest for the meat before I pulled it.I will have some of Jeff's finishing sauce on the side.The bark came out great,looked better before I foiled it but did not get a picture at the time.
