My first pulled pork was a hit....

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have been asking a lot of questions here and I wanted to thank the forum members for their help.

My first pulled pork was a huge success! Everyone loved it and they went on and on about how good it was. I say "was" because there is not one fragment left.

Here it is out of the foil after sitting wrapped in a blanket in a cooler for an hour. It was juicy and the flavor......oh well, you know



It just fell apart.



And here is how I presented it. Plan and simple



Thanks again for all the help.

Nice job. The bark looks good. What temp did you take it too? I bet it tasted excellent.

Smokin Jim, and all, this is what I did.

At 4:00 p.m. the night prior, I rubbed the meat with yellow mustard and a pork rub. I wrapped it and placed it in the fridge overnight. In the morning I lit the fire at 3:30 a.m. and the pit was up to temp (225) at 4:30 a.m. I used lump hardwood charcol and hickory and apple wood for the smoke. Once the internal temp of the meat hit 100 I began spraying it with apple juice ever hour. I wanted to wait until the IT hit 165 to go to foil, but the weather was horrible and I was freezing, so, with the advice of some on the forum, I went to foil at 145 and placed it in the oven at 250 degrees until the IT hit 195. I then wrapped it in a blanket and placed it in a cooler and let it sit for an hour before I pulled it. I had guests coming at 6:30 and I got it done just before they arrived.

I would have loved to do the entire thing on the smoker, but with the weather (28 degrees), and the schedule I had to keep, (Dinner Guest Arriving at 6:30 p.m.) I went to the oven icon_redface.gif

My wife is still going on this morning about how good it was. Now she wants me to do some ribs. icon_wink.gif

Yep, I think I'm hooked.

Thanks for the compliments guys and thanks again for all the help!

Excellent job! That looks so juicy and tasty -- congrats on your first pulled pork.

I learned something valuable from you. Do two!! :-)

That is a winner in my book. I think you stayed cool and calm by using the oven. Stress does not lead to good Que.
