This is the story of a man, his dog, and the 14 hour journey to pulled pork perfection. Also, it was the trial run for my new AMZN Pellet Smoker.
It all started with a 6.5# boneless shoulder, fresh from my butcher at Branded Meats, in Henderson, NV. Got it home on Wednesday and got it all rubbed up and in the fridge Thursday night.
Saturday Morning, 1AM, I roll out of bed cursing as I trip over baby toys, make a cup of coffee, and fire up 'ole Semla to get her to 225 and pull my pork out of the fridge.
Next, I load up my new AMZN Pellet Smoker with a pound of AMZN pellets, half Pecan and half Apple and take my mini torch to it.
Pellets burning, coffee mug empty, the pellet smoker, and the pork go in at 2AM.
Locked and loaded, I attempt to take a nap. Spritzing every hour or two to keep her moist. After 7.5 hours of smoking, the AMZN burns out and the pork is looking awesome.
Let it finish out with no additional smoke and pulled the pork out about 4PM, at 192 IT. Pulled, sauced, sandwiched, and ate.
It came out amazing. Flavor and texture was spot on. The AMZNPS is the best investment I've made so far for my smoking. Thanks again to Todd for all his help and his amazing products. Looking forward to sending him tons of money in the future.
Happy Smoking Everyone, and May The Pork Be With You!
