Like eating candy w/ Q-View

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Pulled out a small bone-in Butt and rubbed my own, home-made dry rub on this at 8am, pulled it off at 6:30!  Wow, just cannot get any better.

 

 

I've smoked so many butts over the last couple of years and have always had great success with this method:

  1. Rinse and pat dry.
  2. Keep the fat pad up, slice into the pad about 1" square, don't worry about pretty, the bark will be covering :)
  3. Coat liberally with yellow mustard - this acts as a binder for the rub and adds a little flavor.
  4. Rub - the love - on the outside that feels good on the inside!  I make my own and contrary to popular opinion it has brown sugar in it, about 1/3 brown sugar to 2/3 pretty good spices and seasonings.  (I never inject)
  5. While I normally will prep a day ahead and let the meat sit overnight to soak in the rub, this time I did not, it went straight into a pre-heated smoker set at 220 degrees.  I plugged in an instant read digital and let it smoke.
  6. Again, contrary to popular opinion I did not spritz - why wet the bark?  The smoke is sealing the meat and if it is cooked low enough there is no drying out.  But when the temp gets in the 190-200 range it is ready for pulling.
  7. Grab the tongs, quarter turn of the bone and it pulls out clean. 
  8. Enjoy!

 

This weekend it will be ribs!
