Trying Something New...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Im 5 hrs in on two 7.5lb butts. Standard rub, using hickory and apple, and spritzed with bourbon, apple juice, and worschestshire at the 4 hr mark.

I decided not to wrap this time, so I decided to put some JJs finishing sauce in a pan mixed with bourbon on the smoker. Maybe this will give me a nice smokey sauce to pour over the pork when reheating tomorrow...maybe not?

Regardless, Im getting hungry...

My experience is it will taste like an ashtray but give it a try and see what you think. My life lesson: don't drink the bong water.

What will taste like an ashtray? The meat or the sauce the way gitaryz is making it?

Just my experience that the water after smoking meat (or anything else) does not taste very good. But maybe it's just me.

I would drink the bourbon and save the finishing sauce for the finishing. I do like to collect the drippings though. You can pour them in a jar and set in the fridge while your butts are resting in the cooler. The fat will rise to the top and you can defat to have a great addition to your finishing sauce or just add it back into the pork once it has been pulled. I have never tasted an ashtray but you might be doing something wrong there Bama.
