My first pulled pork on new 40" MES BT with Q-View

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smokin papallo, Mar 13, 2016.

  1. My first Boston butts for pulled pork on 40" MES 2.5 BT. Using AMNPS with pitmasters choice. I am thinking about 14 hours but will cook to roughly 200.

    Pork probed and AMNPS fired up..

    Pre-rub looking good. Used sweet heat blend with chipotle, turbinado, espresso, garlic, freshly ground BP, sea salt etc...

    The waiting is the hardest part.. I will gladly Q-View finished goodness..

    Great start!

  4. Turned out soo good. I had issues keeping AMNPS going, even after microwaving pellets before hand. I had to relight them a few times. Still got plenty of smoke, though..

    Good job.  Looks delish.  Nice bark on the butt, especially cooking it in a MES.

    Awesome pulled pork!  Great job.  Points!

  8. Thanks.. The bark has been outstanding on the brisket and the butt I smoked on my mes 40 2.5 Also, I know not foiling and just being patient with cook time has helped.
