My brother wl_kb3 came to town for the weekend and we fired up my smoke shack and filled it with meat. It was a long day of smoking as we got a bit of a late start. The meat went on the smoker at 8:30 AM and we didn't get done with pulling and packaging it until 2 AM. We ended up throwing on 5 butts, 2 chuckies and a full packer brisket. We also threw a few stuffed burgers on for lunch yesterday. This was the first time that I have tried a picnic roast butt and also the first time I tried not foiling a butt. I have not eaten the pulled pork yet to see if there is a big difference in taste between the foiled vs. non foiled but I think I will keep foiling in the future as the 4 foiled ones pulled like a dream and the non foiled one was a bit tougher. It still pulled ok it just wasn't any where as easy as the foiled one. I did foil the one butt and let it rest in the cooler before we pulled it. Well here is our qview.
We tried out a different marinade for the brisket.
The 5 butts.
The two chuckies.
I tried a marinade for the chuckies that my buddy gave me for a brisket. I don't think I will use this again as its made for doing a brisket in the oven and giving it a fake smoke flavor. The marinade has liquid smoke added. Still tastes good but there is no need for liquid smoke when I am putting it in the smoker.
Its the next morning and its time to get the rubs on the meat and get them into the smoker.
Brisket ready for the smoker.
All on the smoker.
Some stuffed burgers for lunch.
Chuckie all rested and pulled like a dream. I normally slice them but this one was so tender there was no way you could slice it.
The point of the brisket pulled like a dream as well. We were going to make burnt ends but my brother decided he wanted to try pulling it.
Here is the brisket.
One of the butts after the bone was pulled out.
Nice and clean.
Well you get the idea. Thanks for looking at our Qview.
