got some pork ready for 2mrw smoke

Discussion in 'Pork' started by bbqchris, Mar 20, 2008.

  1. So a lucky it was late night shopping 2nit as its easter long wend starting 2mrw (fri) which means public holidays on fri sunday and monday (4 day wend [​IMG]) as the butcher that i went to for my brisket didnt have any shoulder pork, plus it was gonna be $19.90 a kg which seemed a lil steep. Anyways off track, but just got to a butcher as he was closing in a mall after work and scored a 1.65Kg slab of pork scotch fillet.... only $13.80 aud

    Still good to follow the same principals for smoking the shoulder u guys think?

    about to give it a rub now. q-view to follow 2mrw .

    Hmmm I'd say 20 a Kg is highway robbery for shoulder/butt. Around here it's like $4-6 US for a Kg.

    Only reference I can find to "Scotch fillet" is a rib eye cut- possibly a loin? We don't see that name/cut here that I'm aware of.
  3. before the rub. got something to look forward to doing 2mrw morning [​IMG]

    ps - the butcher sed the cut was from the 'neck'

    Hmmm close to the shoulder. Looks too marbled to be a top cut of loin. How were you planning on serving it? Sliced? Pulled?

    congrats on finding your pork cut Chris! cook like u did the other, take to 175 for sliceing-195 to 205 for pulling-good luck buddy. Like Rich says those prices are pretty high.I'm doing a shoulder Sat. I paid $2.50 a kg.( its a 3kg. roast) but I bet your mutton is cheap heh?

    Looks like it's gonna be some tastey vittles! Enjoy the long weekend!
  7. Looks like good stuff Chris. By my calculations its 11:30 friday morning right now down under...I am sure your smoke is well underway. Hope you are enjoying the day. Send over some q-view when you gat a chance.

    Looks like an end loin roast to me. They are really cheap where I shop. I'll be interested in the finished view and results!

    Looks good Chris. Not familiar with that cut but who cares, it will be smoked pork right. [​IMG]
  12. Put on the smoker at 10:45am this morning (first pic) with hickory chunks
    7pm now (2nd pic) with an internal temp of 161 F

    the meat temp has been moving very slowy thou [​IMG] and wondering if i should move to oven as its coming up to 8 hours of total time in the smoker soon ... or should i expect it to start oving quicker after teh plateau is over (if it ends is what it feels like now)

    mine went 10 hrs. Chris to temp of 190-I wanted 205-pulled and wrapped in the cooler now.was thinking on oven but said no.

    how hot you got the smoker going-kept mine about 225-250
  15. yep sames got the smoker temp at 225 - 250.

    ill go check the temp now again to see if changes **
  16. 163 F @ near 7:15 now... this is going to be a late dinner lol
  17. 181F just after 8:30... glad its climbing
  18. took it off it round 10:30 i think.. most parts of the meat seemed to be above 190F, then foiled tightly + wrapped in towel.

    turned out really GOOD! nice smoke ring. Had with some mash, buttered bread and topped with finishing sauce and a pepsi :)

    time for some pics.

    i think next time if i get the same cut i'll slice the pork cut in half lengthways for a quicker smoke, plus alot more bark which i find the best bit as does my gf (she was nice enuf to take pics whilst i sliced n pulled)

    cheers for help once again all, and in case anyones interested the meat made us dinner and the next 2 days worth of lunches (im not buying a huge big cut of meat until i get a vaccum food sealer [like the rest of u seem to have].... friggin expensive round here thou)
  19. and dinner of course (well worth the wait)
