First 2 butts scored and ready for rub

Add a little glue

Rubbed

 

All 4 butts rubbed and wrapped for 24 hours

First set of 2 on the smoker

6 hours later ready for the foil wrap

Day two, second set of butts on the smoker

4am and ready to wrap.....thumb1.gif

And pulled......

 

I fed 64 very happy people and only ended up with 1/2 gallon ziplock bag left over! 

 

FYI...SoFlaQuer's Finishing Sauce is AMAZING!!!!!!:drool:

You started with 37 lbs pork butts. What was finished weight? Last time I made some pulled pork I started with 43 lbs and ended up with 21 finished product. That makes it about $4.00 - $4.50 per lb.

Do you always rub mustard on your butts? Does it makes a difference in taste? I've never tried it but I see a lot of people doin that so my next butt i smoke I'm gonna try it.

I don't think it offers any flavor enchancement but maybe others will disagree with that?  I was originally told to brush on some yellow mustard to help keep that rub on the meat.

No taste at all, just serves as a "glue" for the rub to stick to.  Totally not needed, more for personal preference.

Not sure what my final weight was but I seem to only experience around 40% loss this time.  I've had butts shrink up way more than these did but I normally figure around 50% loss to be safe.  I was serving 1/3lb servings, total count was 64 attending and a few came back for seconds.  I only had roughly a pound left over so if I were to guess I was in the low 20's

SoFlaQuer's Finishing Sauce, cover with foil and throw in a 350 degree oven until it reaches 155 degrees. I've found PP to be very forgiving in the reheat as long as you add a little moisture.  I actually think it tastes better the second day but that is just personal preference :icon_mrgreen:
