Anniversary Pork Butt!

Discussion in 'Pork' started by medic92, Mar 19, 2015.

  1. Today is my tenth wedding anniversary.  While out running around I picked up a nine pound pork shoulder at $1.49/lb.  It's rubbed and ready to go tomorrow.  I think I'm going to use the Brinkmann vertical smoker on this one and see if it holds temperature a little better now that it's a little warmer than ten degrees.  Pictures will start in the morning.

  4. Pork butt is rubbed and on the smoker.  I'm using a mix of pecan and apple wood, smoking at 275 since we celebrated our anniversary well into the night and I got a bit of a late start this morning. 

     
  5. Congrats on the 10,   Butt looks good

    Looking good Medic, keep em coming. :)
     
  7. About 3 1/2 hours into the cook...although it's performing just fine I'm realizing I honestly don't care for the vertical smoker.  I think I'll give it to my neighbor after this butt's done.

     
  8. Looking Good ,   What is it you don't like about your smoker ?

    Doesn't seem to be anything wrong with that smoker-the shoulder is looking real good! I'm curious too what it is you don't care for. David.

    Happy anniversary Medic, and many more. Don't give up on that vertical smoker just yet. Good looking pork shoulder there.
     
  11. I just don't care for the setup for the most part.  Like I said, there's nothing wrong with the vertical smoker, I just prefer using my offset.  :)

  18. It was decent but I don't think the quality of the pork was very good.  I think I'll stick with getting mine from the meat locker and paying a little more.
