Okay guys and gals here it is...I smoked a 8# Pork Butt using Hickory and Apple wood. Cooked it till 145 degrees then foiled it and finished it off in oven until internal temp was around 200 degrees. It came out of the oven at around 1:00 AM and at 2:00 AM this morning I pulled it. Bone came out effortlessly and meat pulled beautifully. It took about 14 hours to cook at 225 degrees. This is my second Butt and it was definitely better than the first! I used Jeff's Rub very generously and it definitely gave it a great tasting bark. I plan to use his finishing sauce tomorrow when we have the pulled pork for supper. Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions, and thanks to Jeff for a wonderful rub! ...This is a great site with great people! I have attached Q-Views of the finished product. I have pics of the pulled pork itself, the Au-Jus, and the lonely bone that basically fell out of the meat. The only problem I had was not eating too much as I was pulling the meat! Enjoy!!
