Boston Butt Smoke

Discussion in 'Pork' started by kandl, Mar 16, 2014.

  1. Hello everyone, I have a 6 lb butt to go on the UDS tomorrow.  I am wanting to try an injection on this one but my question is can I inject it and rub it down tonight or is it better to inject and rub it down in the morning right before it goes on.  I usually add my rub to briskets ect the night before and let them rest but with the injection I wasn't sure if that was a good idea or not.  Thoughts?

    Seems to me that would be fine as long as your injection has nothing in it to soften the meat.

    Everything happens the night before at my house. Depending on what you are injecting time helps on making it disperse better..especially any dark colored stuff. Let us know how it turns out. .

    Draggin it out an beating the heck out of it with your fists..helps a lot too. Can prevent domestic violence if you get the drift..that make it assimilate better also.

    Pecker tracks from dark injections is not nice to paraphase the 3rd Grade teacher.."A word to the wise should be sufficient" lol. What in the world are you shooting them up with? Kindly dont make me tell about this guy I knew one time who had a chicken pumped so heavy it exploded when the first judge decided to cut into it. It was sorta like the bloated sperm whale that wiped out half of Tokyo..to hear him tell it anyway. Yeppers yall are pushing some of us over into the edge of insanity.

    At 160 degrees when I put the foil over the pan.

    After that it went pretty fast to 200 where I pulled it rested it in a cooler and pulled it apart for supper. I have to say its the best pulled pork I have done yet!!

    I know the feeling. Lol

    Looks great
     
  14. Thanks! I was amazed at how much liquid was in the pan when it hit 200. It was almost bone dry when I covered it. I shredded it with man claws and mixed the juice back into it. And it was amazing...

    I will have to try it some day
     
  16. I haven't in the past either this one was all new except for the rub. First injection and tried the pan going to 160 and simply covered the pan with foil.

    How was the bark? I like bark.
     
  18. There was still some but not as much as with no foil obviously. I enjoy the bark as well but I was happy with the amount I ended up with.

  20. Thanks Disco!  I am very proud of this one.  I had even mixed up some finishing sauce but liked it better without! I will definitely try to reproduce these results again.  [​IMG]
