1st BBB

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Took three pork butts and turned them into....Amazing!
I highly recommend doing this...Or being related to someone who is doing this.

The cure is salt, brown sugar and Prague Powder #1.
New scales and universal cure calculator made the portioning part safe n easy. Thanks DiggingDogfarms!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bagged them for two weeks or so. Turning daily.
Rinsed, tested for salt, rinsed again.
Dried in the fridge for 24 hrs or so
I put coarse pepper on them before hitting the pit
Put them all in the smoke for a while
The first three halves came off to be sliced thinly. and the other three (leaner ones) stayed on till they were like a tender brisket. I cut those over 1/4" thick.
Pretty cool stuff!

Pics got out of whack,

Looks Real Good, BeeRustler!!Thumbs Up

 

Mighty Tasty!!:drool--------------------:points:

 

 

If you would take the leaner halves up to about 205° IT, like you do for Pulled Pork, you could have some Awesome Pulled Butt Ham to go with your BBB.

 

Just a suggestion.

Yep, Thats what the bottom left pic is. I raised the temp and left those three in the pit after the first three came off. Must say that I like that version the best. May pull the next batch

In the pic its hard to tell how tender it is. I put it in the freezer before slicing, but when re-heated and browned in a pan

It tries to fall apart, even at close to 3/8" thick. Made the best meatiest BLT Ive ever had last night. I guess Im hooked, I bought six more butts @97 cents a pound a couple days ago.

    I'd like to do a couple corned beef/ pastramis next, But The price of the briskets is a bit silly right now. I thought they would go on sale  during Houston Rodeo season. Haven't seen that happen yet.

 

BTW, Thank you Bearcarver for all your factual info on this board. Helped me a lot!

97 cents a pound for Butts????

 

Do you have to wear a ski mask & carry a weapon???

 

Usually about $2.29 is the best price around here!!!
