So I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan and the frame for the back of the drivers seat had a cross member crack. Lucky for me I have a neighbor who is a young (mid 20's) hungry guy that likes BBQ and just so happens to be a welder by trade with his own TIG welder at home. So I offered him a couple of lbs. of pulled pork for some welding on the seat frame - rather than spend $300 on a new drivers seat!
.... and it gave me an excuse to fire up the WSM and smoke up some pork!
Started with 18.5 lbs. raw, trimmed about 1/2 lb. of fat off and gave it a good rub down:
Set up the WSM with hickory. Home Depot now carries these splits that work great for getting a nice long smoke time without having to constantly add chunks of wood. I buried two in the very bottom and put 4 on top to help hold the lit charcoal in the middle when I dumped it.
Meat went on at midnight, and it was a cold windy night so I wrapped the WSM in it's welding blanket and went to bed.
Checked it at 6:00 AM, and tossed in two more splits. At 10:00 AM they were ready to come off of the smoker - you can see how the bone is ready to just pull right out of there!
Rested them for two hours, then shredded and vacuum sealed in 1 lb. bags. Stared with 18.5 raw weight ended up with just shy of 8 lbs. finished product, and gave three lbs. to my neighbor for the welding job.
Now I just have to figure out how much pulled pork it would take to get a new fence and deck! LOL
