This is another gem I drudged out of the photo album. Started off with two cryo packed butts from Sams. I loaded them up with rub. I use a variant of Jeff's rub with some local honey to make it stick. The wife and kids really like the subtle difference the honey makes.
While I was waiting for the butts to sweat out I went and started the Akorn. Got it rolling then pinched it down to get to temperature.
It does pretty good at this setting when it is a little cooler. During the summer or a windy day I have to squeeze it down just a bit more. This one was laid in with a mix of 20-40-40 hickory-apple-cherry. Got those suckers rolling along at 225. Checked them towards the end of the smoke and they were perfect. Here they are right after coming off the smoker.
I put them in foil and old towels and let them sit for about an hour and a half. Once they were done resting I got to work. They were so tender I pulled the big bone right out by hand.
Then I set to shredding it. It came apart very easy. I was so happy with it, I took a video before my hands got too messy. I'll upload it to youtube so I can link it in here. Once I was done I put on some finishing sauce. I typically modify Jeff's sauce for our regular bbq. For the finishing sauce I dilute it 1:1 with water and heat it up over the stove. I put it on, tossed it around, and then sampled it.
It sure was good. I had to chase the kids off so I could freeze some!
