Ok...so the wife wanted some pulled pork for dinner and I needed some to take to work for lunches this week...so off to Walmart.
Started with a nice trimed 8.5 pound butt.
Gave it the rub down...which is where I cheated. I was feeling a bit rub mixing lazy...so I did the unthinkable...bought...
I recently did a 12 pound turkey, and it took just a tad over the 4 hour mark to reach 162.
The bird was thawed in the refrigerator 2 days and then submerged in the sink with water for over 24 hours. The bird was completely thawed when ready for cooking.
I would have to agree with other...
A bit late, but we decided to smoke a small turkey as a test.
Started with a 12 pound turkey 6% solution.
No brining for this bird just a generous lather of butter and herb rub above and below the skin.
Smoked at 230 with maple for about 4 hours. Then upped to 275 for about 30 min to crisp...
