The kids are coming over today and phoned me yesterday on the Menu request. "Dad, how about pulled pork tacos and sandwiches?" Sure kids... No problem... So I zipped to the store and found a nice 10 pounder. Back home, I gave it a wash and trimmed of the loose bits.
I injected this pig with Butchers Pork injection mix. I'm a big fan of all Butchers products. I am switching the rub to a spicy garlic. ( I usually use Jeffs on all of my pork.) I put the butt in the smoker at 220 degrees at 8pm.
At 8am the next morning the Butt has an internal temp if 169. Still a ways to go so I think I'll make some buns for those that prefer sammies over tacos.

STUFF YOU NEED
After mixing form a ball and place in an oiled bowl cover with a wet towel and allow to rise in a warm place for 2 hours or until doubled.
After 2 hours, lightly deflate the dough. Cut it into 8 equal portions and roll in a ball.
Press the ball of dough onto a well greased baking sheet to about 3" diameter. Allow the to rise again for 30 to 45 minutes.
Brush the tops with a bit of melted butter. Bake them in a preheated oven at 375 for 15-18 minutes.
Place those great smelling hot buns on a wire rack to cool. I like to use an electric knife to cut bread. ...because I am lazy...
I'll check back with you in a bit... I think I deserve a brewski... b
