    Busy night here. I have 2 butts, one for my boss and the other for a payback going to Utah with some pastramie and a buckboard bacon that is curing right now here. http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=76080

    Back to the pulled pork.




    2 7# pounders @ .99 a pound.



    My usual rub, I like to keep it simple.




    Ahh fire.



    Flipped.



    In the smoker.



    Drip pans with 3 cups water, some beef stock and some thinly sliced onions for the finishing sauce.




    The bonus is the ribeye smoked till 110' and finished on the Weber gas.





    I had to rewarm Carol's in the Mic she likes med.



    Through the door after 1 1/2 hours at 93'.

    Here is the plan. Smoke another 3 -4 hours and put them in the drip pans and foil, turn the MES down to 190' and go to bed. When we get up I will pull them.

    Thanks for watching. More to come!

    Looks great as always Ron. Once again, I stare and lust over the MES with the window. I'm trying to think of an excuse for the wife to have to buy a new one.

    I think I'll have to try to smoke some steaks. That ribeye looked amazing, great grill marks, cooked to perfection. Nice job.

    Looks great as usual !!!
    Do you normally sear your butts or is this an experiment? I know I like searing brisket, but have never thought of trying a seared butt.

    I always sear, even before I was smoking I seared and then in the oven. Makes for a good bark and flavor.




    Nice.



    Bone came right out.



    Easy to pull.



    Chilled the au jus and defatted and added back to the meat.

    The other is done and picked up by my boss. $40 bucks in my pocket.[​IMG]

    Thanks for watching.
