My best Pork yet

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Decided to break out my ECB and do a seven pound pork shoulder. Rubbed it with mustard and dry rub last night and then put it on the smoker around 9 a.m.

Smoked it until it reached 165F and then wrapped it with foil and added a braising liquid. I used pineapple juice, Worcestershire, some leftover rub, and 4 cloves of minced garlic. Was about 1 1/2 cups of total liquid. Cooked on ECB wrapped until it reached 205F. Took it off and wrapped it with towels and rested it for 3 hours.
I drained the liquid and when I went to pull the pork, a huge chuck just fell off. I knew then that this was going to be the best shoulder that I had ever made. As a matter of fact, this is the best BBQ I have ever had. And I made it myself. I never brag or try to talk my food up, but this pulled pork was the best thing I have ever had. The pineapple juice added an incredible sweetness and mixed very well with the garlic and the juices from the pork.
Wish I had some pictures to post. I started to take some but forgot halfway through.
I took a little bit of knowledge from all of the posts that I have read and turned it into one great pork shoulder. Thanks SMF!

Norrell, congrats on your butt success. It's a great feeling when you take all this knowledge and create some good eats (sorry Alton). Look forward to the q-view next time.

Nothing wrong with bragging about what you cooked!! There will be days when nothing seems to work right so rejoyce when things work out....we will be happy when you do good and sad with you when things don't work out.

Very good.

Never forget that BBQ restaurants are in the restaurant business, not necessarily the BBQ business.

I usually don't add braising liquid when/if I wrap my butts. I do however like to inject the butts with fruit juice & spices.

on a better note,,, congrats on your smoke, glad it was a good one,you will find that the best bbq is always whatever is coming out of your smoker. I think that is awesome, never thought I would go to the local bbq restaraunt and feel like I wasted my money.

Kind of harsh for a friendly site. I guess if my camera ever breaks down, I won't dare post anything about the foodicon_sad.gif
