A friend asked to smoke pulled pork for his daughter's birthday, and I get to keep one of the butts. Sounds like a deal to me! Plan was to smoke Friday night and then let rest in the oven until the party. Due to an unforeseen trip to the ER in Tucson for my 3 year old, we didn't get home until 2300. I just didn't have it in me to fire up the smoker and stay up all night, so against my instincts I put the butts in the oven at 225 and then on the smoker at 0700 Saturday morning, smoked until 1300 and then pulled. I don't think anyone knew the difference.
