Mid Week Pulled Pork and Sides (Q-View Journey)

Discussion in 'Pork' started by Misplaced Nebraskan, Sep 26, 2018.

  1. Few friends and I decided a Tuesday was a good day for a Q, so decided on some Pulled Pork, Dutch's Beans, and Mac & Cheese. Just recently started getting into photo-documenting the cooks more, so figured I'd post it up. I always enjoy coming on here and seeing how and why people do things and wanted to do my part to start giving back. Anyway, enjoy. Comments and Feedback welcome. [​IMG]

    On The smoker at 06:00 am. Due to work I needed this to run low and slow all day so I started at 190°F

    [​IMG]

    At lunch I went home and Foil Wrapped the Butt with ACV and Wooster Sauce and bumped pit temp to 275°F. I set the Pitts & Spitts Meat Probe temp to 200°F. Once the meat hits the setpoint, the controller backs the temp off to 180°F to hold. Super convenient while at work. The butt hit a final temp of 205°F after carryover. I pulled it and left it venting for about 20 mins and used a baster to pull the juice out of the foil.

    I wrapped the Butt back up and placed in a cooler to rest for an hour and made a vinegar side sauce

    I have an S7 with an Otterbox Folio case. You can't take good pictures because the Folio case likes to throw a weird shadow. On the other hand, it's nice because Otterbox lol. I need to find a proper camera and start doing blog stuff because people keep nagging me to do it!

    I also have no idea what DSLR means.. ;)
     
  14. I like the OtterBox cases. DSLR just means fancy camera :D

    But definitely start taking more pics. I like reading/seeing posts. Guess I'm just simple and like pictures haha.

    That is a fantastic looking meal!
    Very nicely done!!
    Actually I tried to put this on the carousel & your photo's would not show up.
    I don't know if it's because you edited them or what, but it sure should be up on the carousel!
