Yesterday I smoked my first two pork butts (a 6.5lb and a 7.5lb) and shared it with our neighboors during an impromptu block party. The pork was a hit!
I wanted to say thanks to the SMF community for all of the information and tips that helped make some amazing bbq.
In particular, I have to say that SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce:
http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/49892/finishing-sauce-for-pulled-pork#post_3455 was incredible. After pulling the pork, I added the sauce to just a portion of the meat and encouraged our guests to try it without the sauce and then with the sauce. To a person, everyone thought the unsauced meat was really good, but the sauced meat was amazing. I had to agree 100%.
As for the smoker used, I have a cheap bullet style water smoker.
So, thanks again for the information, SMF community! I am looking forward to reading about, making, and sharing more delicious bbq!
