Picked up this nice butt from a gourmet grocer, its one of the best I've bought. Real nice and large. Have a BBQ Saturday evening with some friends, and i volunteered for the butt (otherwise it owed have been burgers and Dogs).
I threw together a quick rub or Sea Salt, Fresh Cracked Pepper, Fresh Coffee Grounds, BrownSugar, Scorpion Pepper, and a bit of paprika. Rubbed her down with some mustard, and then the rub. Threw it into the smoker at 9pm at 235.
I had some pork belly trimmings frozen u left over from the last time i did bacon, and so i grabbed those (I think i got the idea from Bear) and put them in a pan above with some holes poked in it.
So far it looks like I've been getting a steady baste as those trimmings loose their juices. This was the butt this morning when i opened her up. I threw the mav probe in, and now up just waiting for the stall. Once she stalls ill throw it into a pan and wrap it up until 200ish.
I also cooked up a couple of BBQ sauces, Ive never done a Mustard based sauce, and often avoid them, cause i don't like the typical yellow mustard with some vinegar type, so i found a few recipes, and also improved some others.
For the traditional sauce, i just used Jeffs sauce recipe, but also added some other herbs to make it a bit more bitter. And for the mustard sauce i used, yellow and dijon mustard, honey, brown sugar, siracha sauce, scorpion pepper, apple cider vinegar and balsamic vinegar, a tiny bit of ketchup, and some Werschester sauce. Its super good, ill keep the recipe on standby for future.
Ill keep them pictures rollin ad they come. This is where I'm at now!
