10lb Pulled pork

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smokingd, Jul 31, 2009.

  1. [​IMG] OK so I am starting with 10.5 pound pork shoulder (cost $15) I have it rubbed with Wild Willy's number Onederful rub


    The Rub

    3/4 cup paprika
    1/4 cup fresh ground pepper
    1/4 cup coarse salt (i use sea salt)
    1/4 cup sugar (Your choice)
    2 tbsp chili powder
    2 tbsp garlic powder
    2 tbsp oinion powder
    2 tsp cayenne ( I prefer around 4)

    Once again I am using birch for my smoke. I prefer to peal my logs I find that the bark gives a bitter taste. My temps are hovering between 220-250 depending on wind gusts.


    Oh yeah I am having to do this on my uniflame charcoal grill



    Can't wait to get a new smoker. Here I have my beauty pork shoulder on the grill. It took around 20 min to get my grill to the right temps and start my log smoldering.



    In an hour or so I will put a probe in the meat (I have 2 probes one therm)

    Thanks for checking I will update as the day goes looking good so far. Thank for checking out my pp

    Hey Dennis,

    Looking good so far. I have a pork shoulder in the smoker since 6 this morning as well.

    I already have the cole slaw made and stewing in it's own juices and am about to throw together some of Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans.

    Debating whether that is enough or if I should throw some corn on the cob in too.

    I guess I will let the wife make that call when she gets home at noon.

    Also picked up an awesome idea from someone here in SMF. I ran by Home Depot and picked up a couple of ceramic tiles for pizza (tomorrow) and have them seasoning on the grill.



    Will post qview later.......Can't wait till dinner.....

    On the Q. The sholder Coming along nicely


    The wind got real crazy here so I wrapped in tin foil with some apple juice and into oven at 225. I pulled and into a cooler will pull in a couple hrs more pic's to come.

    Thanks for sharing the Q-view D, it looked great!!
     
  11. So I took my Pulled pork to the inlaws family reunion. My mother inlaw had challenged me to make a better pp then she can make in the oven (LOL). Well as you can see mine came out great. (I was not allowed to photograph her food). The drippings I added from the pork complimented mikey's sauce quite well. Don't get me wrong her food was awesome she used her fav BBQ sauce and then added a small jar of orange marmilade it was so good I am going to try it smoked lol and so are her and dad. I also gave my dad inlaw a little smoker designed for the side burner of his gas grill then spent the weekend talking smoke with him. Mom has since accepted the fact that my smoker will always out do her oven.

    This is a neat little smoker and seems great for those who probabley won't go to our extremes.

    Once again thanks for checking out my post
