Spent yesterday trialling the mods to my ECB, by doing some pulled pork. Used cushion meat which worked out very well. Jeff's rub over mustard, and SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce. I reserved all the pan juices, and after defatting, added all of it into the finishing sauce. I'm glad I did that, because if anything the cushion was quite a bit leaner than most butts (might just be how it was trimmed up) and ? dry. Turned out very good and the family said best they've ever had. The ECB mods seemed to work pretty well, and I didn't have near the heat variation I've battled in the past. Pretty much used the minion method for coals and only had to reload once in the 11 hour smoke. Used moist chips in foil pouches for smoke app. Also did a loaf of sourdough bread and Goats sourdough cobbler only with hucks. Both of these turned out real good too, I've got shots of them in their respective sections.
