Pork Butt and Fatties 9_1_10

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I was in the grocery store picking up a few things and of course I had to browse the meat case. This 7-1/2 lb pork butt called out to me. I did the butt and a couple of fatties, I'll do a seperate thread for the fatties. It was a long day, put the meat in at 8 am, I didn't hit 205 till 9:30 pm! Had a couple of stalls, seemed to take forever to go from 190-205. I had a couple of big temp spikes that worried me, I have a Mastercraft vertical propane and the wood chunks caught fire. The spikes didn't seem to hurt it though.

Spotted this gem and couldn't resist, it had my name on it. Unfortunately I was going away for a couple of days so I couldn't smoke it right away, had to freeze it. Since I found this site and got serious about BBQ I shop meat like women shop shoes.

Rubbed and ready to go in. I used Memphis dust for the rub. I injected it with a mixture of apple juice, vinegar, worsteshire, and some spices.

Temp hit 165 after about 7 hrs, foiled it at 3 pm,

I don't know what happened to this pic. Anyway, it didn't hit 205 till 9:30 pm, I put it in the cooler and pulled it around 11 pm. It could of stayed in the cooler longer, was still pretty hot but I didn't want to be up all night, I used SoflaQuer's finishing sauce on it with a little modification, I cut the vinegar in half and used half apple juice and cut down on the red pepper (my wife still whined that it was too hot) I added a couple of drops of liquid smoke.

My buddy, he stays close whenever I am cooking, if he hears 'whoops' or 'Oh ****' he comes running with his nose to the floor

LOL, The words & phrases we use on the forum are really strange to the rest of the world:

 

I told my brother I was admitted to the "Order of the Thin Blue Smoke".

He said, "Is that the club Ralph & Norton or in?"

 

No, that would be "The Raccoon Lodge".

 

LOL----WISE @$$ brother !

How did you defrost it? How long did it take to defrost?

I took it from the freezer to the fridge, took over 2 days to defrost, I am not sure of the exact time. I put it in the fridge on Saturday night late, it was still somewhat frozen Monday, by Tuesday night it was thawed, I was able to inject it and rub it for smoking Wednesday.

That's a nice looking butt (lol).  Looks like it pulled nicely.  My last 3 butts I tried to do without foiling and they took me forever to smoke...going to take someones recommendation and bump my temps up to about 250* for butts and see how that goes.
