Lemon slices and onion on top of butt?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am going to smoke my first butt soon.  I'm not scared!  :-D

 

Before I had a smoker,I just made pulled pork in the oven with a big butt, with lots of sliced lemon and onions on the top (along with a rub).  It is always a hit.

 

I am sure the smoked will be a grand slam, but can I put lemon and onion slices on the top of the butt in the smoker?  I was thinking I would try and catch the juices and see if they are any good.

 

Thoughts?

Very interesting!  I've used orange and lemon juice when making Cuban style pulled pork and Mojo marinade and sauce.  It too was a hit.  You can absolutely put lemon and onion on the butt, though I've never done it.  Definitely put a drip pan under the butt and use the drippings.  I use drippings ALL the time.

Thanks for the responses.  I think I'll give it a shot and see how it goes.

 

The other thing I was thinking about was adding a dose of caramelized onions and smoked lemons to the pulled pork, after the smoke.

 

Can you smoke a lemon?
