More butt pictures...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I cooked my first pork butt Saturday on the BGE, my first ever actually.  It was awesome!  Low and slow at 225-230, with some apple and cherry wood, until it hit 160 IT and then in the foil it went with about 1 1/2 cup of apple juice.  Then take it on up to 206 IT. Right at a 10 hour cook.  Let it rest for about 30 minutes and it just shreds almost by itself.  All of this with Jeff's rub recipe,,,,mmm, mmm!  I'm still amazed at how easy this cooker can make you look like you've been doing this forever.

 

So, with Tuesday night dinner with all of the kids coming over, what do I do????

 

 

The same thing all over again, x2, but this time with some creole butter injection.  I hope they turn just as good.

Sure sounds like you're another convert.  Really hard to beat a slow cooked, very tender butt.

 

Nice job

No, I'm sorry, I didn't get any finished pictures.  It was late when they came off and taking pictures was the last thing on my mind.  Next time, I promise!  However, they did turn out amazing!  Had plenty of left overs so each of the kids got a zip lock bag of pulled pork sent home with them.  PERFECT!  

 

The right one was done about 45 minutes sooner than the left.  But that's ok, it gave me time to deal with them one at a time.  This turned out to be a 12.5 hour cook with temps of 225-250.  I'm really enjoying the BGE!
