Re: Pork Butt

I injected it with a half cup apple juice, then I gave it a yellow mustard rub, used some bad byrons butt rubb from the local harveys then I wrapped it up in some cling wrap and let it set overnight and as for wood i am using a hickory/mesquite mix.

Re: Pork Butt

I agree, that is a nice looking butt. Great color on that bark! Looks like you're in for some very good eating. Will you rest it when it's done? If so, what's your method?

Re: Pork Butt

I am finishing it up in a 250 oven since the storm clouds are rollin in :( I am gonna bring the internal temp up to 200, wrap in foil then put it in the cooler for hour or so.

Re: Pork Butt

That is a good looking Pork Butt. Can you explain that mustard sauce? the glimpse of the meat in 1 pic looked very good to eat, I would have just picked up a bun, 1 slice of that roast, a beer, Football on TV. Wake me when the TV goes off, cause I will not want to be disturbed.

Steve, Excellent job. Makes me wish that I was having pork butt. Since I'm working today, dinner is up to the wife and she's fixing pot roast. What to do, what to do-it's a toss up between a pork butt or a packer brisket for next weekend. It's been a long while since I did my last brisket so I leaning towards that as my choice. :D

That does look great. I have always made my injections more complicated than apple juice. I will definately try that on my next Q.

Thanks for the idea

Re: Pork Butt

I was wondering all the info I have read aboout pulled pork is it takes anywhere from 8 to 12 hours for it to reach 195 in a 180 to 220 degree smoker. and that was for a 6 to 8 pound butt. but mine only took about 6 or seven hours. I had 2 themometers so i know that the temp in the smoker was correct. does any one have any ideas on what happened.

Re: Pork Butt

All meats don't cook alike. That's why everyone says to cook by internal temp and not by time. If your meat is a real tender cut to begin with then it may skip the long plateau and will finish quicker. The time thing says 1 to 1.5 hours per pound. If you had a real tender butt and it weighed 6 - 7 # then 6 -10 hrs would be about right.

Did you do any triming of the butt prior to cooking.

Re: Pork Butt

No triming.
