Pork butt, chicken and sides

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I had family and friends over for some good times and good food.  I cooked the 8.5lb pork butt @225 degrees for 12 hours.  I pulled the pork butt @ an IT of 195 and put in a foil pan, wrapped it and put in a cooler and then a towel around it and let it sit for 2 hours.  I put the chicken in a brine for 12 hours and then pulled off the skin while washing off the brine.  I put the chicken, corn and beans on @250 degrees for 2 hours.  Everything turned out really well.  I wasn't sure how the chicken would turn out without the skin, but I was really surprised that the chicken had a really nice crispiness to it and was extremely juicy.  When I grabbed the chicken with the tongs I could hear the chicken sizzling on the inside.  That was my first time using a brine and I'll most definitely do it again.  I personally felt that it made a big difference on the juiciness.

 

I injected the pork butt with this

@ webowabo

I loved the creole butter too!  I'll definitely be using it again.  I want to try other recipes and store bought products, but I know that I'll be stocking up on the creole butter next time I'm at the only store in my area that carries it.  I won't hold it against you that you're a Cowboys fan!
