My First Pork Butts! w/Q-View!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Did my first 2 pork butts this weekend...

It was a much shorter smoke than I had expected, after reading some of the threads here. Threw the butts in at 11:30ish, each with a different rub (one with Jeff's rub and the other with another recipe). The smaller one finished up around 8 and the larger one around 10.

Here they are pre-rub, 14.8 lbs total weight:

And here they are at the 100 degree mark. Check out the smoke coming off those bad boys!

Here's one of them at 165 degrees, right before foiling:

And finally, the finished product:

The color on my camera phone does NOT do this pulled pork justice. It was actually more of a pinkish color and looked much more appetizing than the picture above. I really need to get a digital camera, but it's the best I can do for now!

The tray you see above was brought to my office at about 1:30 this afternoon, and right now (at 2:15), it's gone! Rave reviews from my co-workers. After the last batch of ribs and the pulled pork today, I am now the most popular person in the office! I've just been recruited to smoke a bunch of food for the holiday office party.

I used SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce, and it turned out absolutely melt-in-your-mouth delicious. Rep points to SoFlaQuer for the sauce!

Overall, a great smoke, and the Pats won to top off the day!

Nice job. I had to be out of town and missed a great day. Mid 60's and no wind.
