Pork Butt in the MES 40

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Ok I'm up late (10:20am), hungover (that's not to unusual if I don't have to work OT on Saturday), and rushing to get this pork butt in the MES!

Rubbed it down last night about 10pm. Nothing fancy in the rub, just a homemade basic rub for pork (brown sugar, pap, onion, garlic, etc...). Sorry forgot to take pictures. I was drinking remember?

Shot the butt up with about a cup of this combo:

Why? Well Vernors cause I'm from michigan, and pork and ginger seem to go together well, and the captains because I wasn't man enough to finish it last night. Although I did make it till almost 5am!

Amazn is lit! Had some issues keeping it lit last weekend.

Totally forgot to take any pictures of the butt rubbed, or shot up with that delicious capt/vernors combo. Sorry told you I was hung over, and in a rush.

Bought some new toys a few months back and haven't used them. I'll test them out with the iPad today. I boil tested the probes and they were within a few degrees of where they needed to be.

Here's the Qview of the meat in the MES.

Alright gonna rehydrate with some powerade and I'll update as the smoke goes on.

Just over three hours in and I'm at about 131.

I cored out some jalapeños I stuff with some sausage mixed with rooster sauce. I'll wrap in bacon, and hit with some rub right before I throw them in.

I like what you got going on with those jalapeños....

Thanks Mule. Turned out pretty good! Pork butt stalled hard at 150 and took a few hours to get to 160. But besides that everything went fine.

The jalapeños came out great bdskelly! Love stuffing them with sausage!

Final plate

Started this mission about 13 hours ago, and just finished eating. To much PBR today. Felt full before I even ate, and the first time I ate was half hour ago. BBQ, beer, and listening to country music, and baseball on the radio with my dogs all day. Thank you America! What a fantastic Saturday!

Hope you all enjoyed.

Appreciate it fellas. It was a pretty successful Saturday if a hung over Sunday was your goal. Lol!

I don't know if I mentioned it earlier but I finish the wings and jalapeños on the grill with sauce to crisp them up a bit more. Today I used Sticky Fingers Habanero bbq sauce on the jalapeños, and Tropical Pepper Co. XXXXtra Hot Habanero sauce on the wings. That quad x sauce is pretty hot! The heat sticks around well after your done eating. I bought some Scorpion Pepper, and Ghost Pepper sauce from the same company but haven't had the guts to use them yet.

The igrill worked well. The pork butt cooked so long my ipad went from 95% when I started to 10% about 8-9 hours in. I had to shut down the iPad because of it. But as far as the igrill itself it worked the way it should have.

We had plenty of left overs Steve! Gonna read and not cook at all tomorrow. Rooster sauce is fantastic! I use it on everything from bbq, to Mac n cheese, to eggs, and pizza! I'm honestly afraid to use the ghost and scorpion chili sauce. Freakin 500,000, and 780,000 on the Scoville scale!!! I'll try them, and then pay for it! But you only live once! It'll just be another reason for more beer! That's always a good thing!
