Made my first pulled pork for today and everyone is still wanting more.
the smoker is ready
needed something for breakfast and to fill the extra space
then came THE PULL
and the payoff!!!
The butt was 81/2#. The stall started about 2 pm (170 degrees) after a start at 6 am. It stayed there until 6 pm and started to rise and hit 205 at 10 pm! Smoker temp stayed very constant at 240 -250 throughout.
Looks like great Q! Don't ever think you need to do 16 hours for great PP, 6-8 hours will blow your mind as well trust me. My first PP was about the same time and was incredible, now they are done in 7 hours and even better! Keep Q'ing and experimenting.
From what I've heard, you can't go wrong with Jeff's rub. I have been trying to create my own for years. It's a constantly changing recipe. lol Which is why I keep forgetting to buy Jeffs. I want to buy it to show support. I just keep putting it off. Thanks.
BTW, can someone tell me what PP means?
