1st attempt at pulled pork with new AMNPS & MES

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smoking b, Dec 16, 2012.

  1. After my first try at ribs this morning went so well I decided to try out a picnic for pulled pork. After the smoker cooled down from the ribs & salt today I cold smoked some cheese. While that was going on I prepared the picnic.

    I cut the skin off it

    Rubbed & wrapped for a couple hour wait till the cheese was done & the smoker was warmed up again...

    Into the smoker at 9:00 I have the AMNPS filled with pitmaster blend this time to try out. Updates to follow...

    EDIT: fixed typo

    Busy beaver today.....
  4. Lol - the ribs gave me inspiration as soon as I tasted them & realized how awesome they had turned out...
    Yup that's what I'm shooting for - hovering around 232 still waiting for things to stabilize before I make any adjustments...

    Gotta catch up with this in the morning..sounds like you're on a roll...why stop all the fun, huh?

    Dude, you sound like me a couple years ago...fire up a smoker or two (heck, sometimes three) and never let them cool-down between smokes for an entire weekend! Ah, I have slowed down a lot since then though...but those were some fun times!

    EDIT: Oh, sure, now ya post a pic while I'm replying and I missed it! LOL!!! Lookin' tasty already!

    That picnic is looking mighty tasty. [​IMG]
  9. Thanks guys [​IMG]   It looks like I made it to the stall - IT has been 162* for over an hour & a half now. I went out to check on it & figured I would take a really quick pic.

    I think I'm gonna take a quick nap & maybe dream/drool about the yummy food that awaits me later today  [​IMG]   This picnic is starting to look delicious!
  10. Still stalled at 162 like a champ! Might need the big one for this lol!  [​IMG]

  12. Looks like it made it through the stall - IT is now 171* smoker temp 230* Snagged another very quick pic.

    Smelling really good now too  [​IMG]
  13. Looks great. You are on a roll for sure. That's going to be awesome.

  14. Thank you!
    Thank you! & I've already decided to smoke some more nuts later today & perhaps even a top round for sammys as well - I just picked it up Saturday & might as well smoke it so I don't have to freeze it  [​IMG]  
  15. I would love to have half of your energy! Good luck on the rest of the smoking.

    Looks great....... What IT are you going to pull it at? Are you going to let it rest in some type of liquid? Did you use a rub? Did you save the skin to make pork rind pellets?

    Looks good you are banging out some great chow!...JJ
  20. I am going to pull it at 200* to wrap & rest. I'm not sure about the liquid but I guess I need to figure out soon. I'd like to keep as much bark as I can. Yes I did use a rub & I saved the skin to try out but I don't have a lot of faith in it working from what I've read. Won't know till I try though...
    Thank you Chuck!
    Thanks Todd!
    Thanks Jimmy!
