Preparing Smoker & Coals. This Mini WSM is so efficient. This is my third smoke and I still have a bit of Stub's Charcoal in the 1 Bag that was used.
Before rubbing the mustard and Worchestershire Sauce, I tenderized the Butt using a meat fork and punched hole on both lean and fat sides. After this I applied the mustard and Worchestershire Sauce on the surface and worked it into the Butt. I would have used the Pirates Gold Marinade in place of the W-Sauce, but the daughter doesn't like Soy Sauce.
Pork Butt Plastic Wrapped and Refridgerated Overnight. I leave the rub off at this point because the sodium/salt content with pull the juices out of the meat.
Removed from Refridgerator and rubbed with Simply Marvelous Sweet Seductions Rub. I usually remove the Fat Cap from the Butt, but on this smoke decided to try leaving the Fat Cap on and placing the Fat side down to protect the underside from burning. The Pork Butt has plenty of fat to keep it from drying out during the smoke. NOTE: I do not do this for Brisket, I always place the Fat Side Up!
Place Hot Coal onto Unlit Charcoal and Pecan & Apple Wood Chunks.
Steel Pizza Pan Modification in place.
Smoking Begins - Note another modification - One eyelet each for upper & lower rack to insert temperature probes.
Butt was spritzed with Apple, Mango, Peach Juice beginning at 3 hrs. into smoke.
Pork Butt Reached 160 Degrees in about 6 hrs. - Pulled, Double Wrapped and Placed back in Smoker.
When double wrapping, put in some Apple, Mango, Peach Juice, some more Sweet Seductions Rub, Butter, and Fresh Pineapple Slices.
Here are the fresh Pineapple Slices. This was added because of a momentary idea because our daughter had a fresh Pineapple by her juicer.
When the Pork Butt was complete, the Money Muscle was removed and sliced. This was main entree' for Supper! It was tender and done to perfection!
