front quarter sugestions. HOG

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ive got a front hog quarter thawing out.

I plan on smoking it sunday. Can i cook this like a brisket to an IT of 200? Or should i pull it at 165?

Can you only succesfully cook certain cuts of certain meat brisket temperatures?

With pork loin from the grocery store i cook til 145. But ive never cooked anything to brisket temperature and i dont want pulled pork
Id rather slice it


Suggestions?

I am planning on keeping it simple and stayimg with worscechetire sauce salt and pepper.

Being a wild hog id assume cook to 165 on my maverick, to be safe. Or does 145 suffice for all pork?

Tips and suggestions please.

Personally I would smoke it like a Pork Butt or Shoulder. Smoke it at about 250* smoker temp to 200* IT for pulling, but if you want to slice it, just pull it out at about 190* IT, let it rest, then slice it.

I wouldn't trust Wild Boar at 145* like regular Pork.

Thanks a lot. Im not sure of the weight. I was hoping to start this morning but i will probably start it tonight. I figure to get up to 190 it would take quite a bit of time... 12 plus hours

I roll mine at 220, and 20 yours for a 9lb. butt is common. So you are definitely looking at 12+

I forgot out of the smoker pics. I have another quarter in the freezer. I pulled at 196. Did only worchestire and pepper. Added some baby ray to my pulled pork.

We decided to pull it as it was falling aprt so easily. More to come

Nice looking Pulled Pork!!!Thumbs Up

 

If you wanted to slice it, you had to pull no later than 190*, like we mentioned earlier.

 

However like I said that's some real nice looking Pulled Pork!!:drool
