I'm frustrated. (And a newbie at this so the issue is with me, nowhere else)
I haven't been successful yet in getting an easy to shred pork butt- I bought the twin pack of pork butts (no bone) at Costco- the first did not come out well at all - I'm hoping with the feedback I get here I can get the other one I still have to come out nice.
So I did the typical prep on the butt the night before- yellow mustard and a rub and then let it sit overnight. I set the smoker for 225 and had it in there from about 9:00 to 6:00. It looked nice when I took it out but unfortunately it was still tough and very difficult to shred. I never checked the internal temp so I can't say for sure what it got up to. Is it possible that the 9 hours I had it in there for wasn't long enough? I think the butt was around 5-6 lbs.
Is there a magic surefire way of getting it to come out so my family actually wants to eat it??
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
