2nd Butt on the GOSM w-qview

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
After an afternoon of smoking yesterday, I set the alarm for 3:30 a.m. to get a 7+ lb. butt on the smoker in time for dinner tonight. I rubbed the butt with mustard, and rub last night. I added some cherry kool-aid to my rub to see how it will be.

Got the butt on @ 4:00 a.m., and mopped it 3 hours in with a mix of oil, apple juice, my rub, and cider vinegar, so far soo good.

I had to switch out the propane tank about 4 hours in(5 smokes, close to 30 hours out of that tank). I had a reserve, and was glad I did.

3 hours in pre mop:

Ill update as the day progresses.

Serving the pulled pork on Hawaiin rolls, with some cole slaw, and some sweet corn. And of course beer.

thanks for looking.

cherry kool-aid, just 3 tsp added to the rub & tart wash, adding a nice color to the bark.

gonna take my first pork temp reading @ the 11 hour mark @ 3:00 p.m.(damn probe is broken & I havent repalced it yet.).

so far so good though.

Looks like a good start Chisox. Looking forward to the updates and final q-view. Kool-aid to add color to the bark. I think that's an intresting idea. Let us know if you percieve any added taste to the pork when you add it to the rub and wash.

I thought this was the best pulled pork I have eaten/made. THe cherry koolaid in the rub and the tart wash imparted a slight tart cherry taste, one I liked, Ill be using that one again. I was skeptical about kool-aid in the rub, but really liked it. I'll recap. I put the 7+ # butt on @ 4:00 a.m., & kept the temps between 230 & 250 the whole time. I and waited 3 hours before I mopped the butt with cider vinegar, oil, apple juice, and some of the rub. I also sprinkeld rub on after mopping. I mopped only one more time around 6 hours, but saw that this butt had such a nice fat cap it would keep itslef moist as it melted off.

I was @ 185 degrees after 11 hours, and let the butt go 1 more hour before I pulled it and wrapped it in foil. I squirted some honey on the foil, and put some more rub down, and about 2 tbsp of apple juice. I put the butt in the foil fat side down, wrapped it up, and wrapped it ina towel. I put it on a cooler, and finished got the rest of dinner set. The butt was in the cooler maybe 45 minutes before I took it out. The bone pulled right out, and the pork pulled very easily, a desent smoke ring, moist, and great flavor. I ate mine with a little bbq sauce, melindas XXX hot sauce, and topped with slaw. Served on one of these "hawaiian rolls" I see at the deli. Bun held up, and the slaw ontop of a pulled pork sandwich is one of my favorite things. Also had some corn on the cob, and some potato salad my mom brought over.

it was a great dinner imho. I might have to have some of that pulled pork for dinner in taco form(perhaps with an overeasy egg on top like last weeks pulled pork tacos..). PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif

Looks like a heck of a good meal... Nice Job! I will be having pulled pork this Saturday night while watching pre-season football. Can't wait!

Congratulations on a Great Smoke. I'll be doing a similar smoke soon and will use your posting as a reference. The pork looks great. I am sure it tasted even better. Thanks for the posting and q-view.

football, and the NFL season ticket on DirectTv were the reason I bought the GOSM gasser 3 weeks ago. steady temps so I dont have to leave my couch and the football game.

thanks, $.99/lb was how I got my wife onboard with having more pork last weekend(shes getting tired of bbq pork, even though I try to change it up with chicken, mussels, etc.). PDT_Armataz_01_01.gif
