Butt two ways on the WSM

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Smoking two butts overnight one for pulled pork the other for carnitas. Pulled pork butt seasoned with Plowboys BBQ yardbird rub. For the carnitas a recipe found online and slightly altered it contains garlic,dehydrated onion,cumin,salt,oregano and cracked black pepper. Pulled butt to go no foil all the way,most likely. The carnitas one will be panned and foiled at some point and will get the juice from two oranges and a chopped jalapeño on it,may add chicken broth to keep liquid in the pan.

Love letting them roll overnight! Just wrapped the one for carnitas poured ice from two oranges on it and added the chopped jalapeño as planned butt was at an IT of 172*.

Hi B-one, good looking food there.

Please talk a little more about when you put them on,

when you took them off.

I tried a couple yesterday that didn't get done in time.

Thanks.

Morning Ed, I put them on at 8:00 last night and just wrapped one this morning and the other is going no foil all the way my IT is currently 170* it will be awhile before there done! The WSM has been holding steady around 230 most of the night it dipped some this morning about the time I panned and wrapped the one butt so I kicked it to shake some ash and opened a second lower vent and opened the one I had set at half all night long. As you learned butts take along time lots of us have made time mistakes with them!

If you catch a plane you might make it before there done. Foolishly I let the coals go down to far but I added some more so I can turn the corner and finish these without putting them in the oven,I hate having to smell them in the house as they finish.drool.gif
