Due to some of my neighbor's relatives throwing a Monkey wrench into our 4th of July celebration, we had to move our Pork Butt Bar-b-que to Monday instead of Saturday. Not so much a problem as I would not have to rush this butt with my fast smoke method and did it the low and slow way. Around an 8 1/2 lber. It went in at 7 AM. Removed the fat cap entirely. Then used a mixture of Bad Byron's Butt Rub (night before) and some MDM rub the morning of the smoke.
Wood of choice was Oak and Hickory. An occasional spritz of Wiser's Deluxe and Apple Juice. Around 4 1/2 hours and I had the internal temp of 160º.
This was done in my Charcoal to Propane Conversion GOSM. I lay a peach can down on the burner and throw in some charcoal and my selection of wood. Finally a little after 8 PM (around 12 hours 20 minutes) it was at 204º internal. In it came. Rested in a cooler for a little over an hour.
Yes, she was steaming!! Pulled out my bear claws. As I was removing it from the aluminum foil, it just fell apart.
Needless to say, it did not take much to pull apart.
Drained off the excess fat and popped all the pulled pork into a baggie. Will reheat it Monday evening for some great Sammies. I've started to like waiting a day or two before we eat it. The Flavors just go WOW after a couple of days.
Hope you enjoyed the Photos. Everyone have a happy and safe 4th of July.
