Had a shoulder I bought from Harris teeter and couldn't decide what sausage I was going to make so I decided to smoke the butt.......... When I opened the kryopack it had an odor that concerned me. I continued to run my hand over the butt and it was getting a slimy film so off to Harris teeter I went. The manager apologized many times and doubled my money back so off I went to get another one from the meat counter.
Injected it with a light salt solution of 1/8 cup kosher salt and 2 quarts water........ Rubbed it down with some modified Jeff's rub and let it sit while I got the Braunfel stoked
Two chimneys of charcoal and my smoker sits between 225 and 250
On the smoker going with some pecan I picked up from down the road last year.. I have a stock pile in the shed
Pulled it out at about 165 and finished it in the oven... I'm a lazy smoker plus the beers were taking their toll
Into a 260 degrees oven.. Going to take it to an IT of 190 and then going to foil and take it to 205
Out of the oven at 205. I hit a stall at 190 for about 2 hrs
Nice looking bark............... Tasty...............
Set it in the fridge overnight and pulled it this morning.......
A nice close up
Turned out excellent.. This is one of my better butts I have smoked.. I like the pecan
Going to make some of SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce and take it to work for the guys....... let them taste what real pork BBQ is...LOL
Thanks for looking
