Hawg Heaven Rub

By forluvofsmoke, May 1, 2011 | |
  1. A very good, mild dry rub for pork. I use this with Here Piggy-Piggy Brine.


    ****for approx 16lbs of brined pork butts****

    4 Tbls ground apple

    4 Tbls ground red bell pepper

    3 Tbls ground tart cherry

    1 Tbls ground rosemary

    2 tsp ground oregano

    2 tsp thyme

    1 Tbls onion powder

    1 tsp cumin

    1 tsp ground sage

    1 tsp chili powder

    1 Tbls spanish paprika

    1.5 Tbls gound black peppercorn

    1.5 Tbls garlic

    note: if using for non-brined pork, add salt as desired

    Some exerpts from this recipe's introduction to SMF...(a no-foil pork shoulder smoke)

    Brined butts ready to go to hawg heaven:


    Fat-cap scored and dry rub applied:


    The big pig is @ 157*, and the smaller one's @ 160*:


    The slicing subject, just out of the Vault:



    Pulled Pork subject:

    25.5 hours and we're into the foil at last...

    I preheated a large bath towel in the oven on a pan @ 170* while the butt was creeping over 199* (therm reads decimals), double foiled, wrapped it nice a snug and tossed in the "O" and turned it off. Should be good for at leat 6 hours, so we'll both take a nap now, as it's creeping up on 1:00 am now.

    Hi all - I'm Del Monte Red and I am pleased to join your forum.

    I would like to start off with a, for me, a question of critical importance! Tomorrow I will be smoking 10 individual pork tenderloins for a dear friend's 80th birthday party (& 35 guests!). My question is: how much time is required when smoking 10 as opposed to only 1 tenderloin? I intend to use my Masterbuilt 40 inch at 225°. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
