    Yes you read it right
    Meanwhile as you know,pulled pork is not eaten here in belgium
    but by the many posts here on the forum,I went for it
    This link has helped me a lot

    The problem is that I can not compare it with nothing
    but it was super

    First I ask the butcher for a piece from the shoulder ,but there was no bone in 2,15 kg = 4,75 pound

    I rubbed him with my universal rub

    in the refrigerator for 14 hours
    and 1 AM in the smoker,smoked with hicory

    The temp has hung for 2 hours at 68 C = 154 F ,it was best that I already had read that this could happen
    at 9 AM 76 C = 169 F wrap in alu foil

    back on the smoker until internal temp of 94 C = 201 F
    10:30 AM
    wrap it in a couple bath towels and put it in a cooler

    00:15 PM still 88 C = 190 F

    pulled with 2 forks

    my burger sandwich with pulled pork

    Now I do have one question, it is normal that you have lost so much weight
    started with 2,15 kg = 4,75 pound
    and ends with 1,32 kg = 2,91 pound that is 38% lighter

    My whole family has enjoyed it
    it is certainly not the last time, it was very nice[​IMG]

    Thank you all [​IMG]

    Yes it is normal to lose that much weight. Looks like you had great success! Next time you will have to experiement will different finishing sauces to you can try the different styles of pulled pork that are out there. Job well done.

    Hi Treegje
    Yes the weight loss is normal and it sure looked good - One question I did have is what was the red sauce you put on the sandwich? Hope it was BBQ sauce LOL
    Nice job!!
