PORK BUTT ----- Again !!!!

  1. Pork Butt and Beans

    I decided at the last minute to smoke the Butt I was going to do tomorrow. I was later than I really like to start, But decided to smoke @ 275 ° instead of my usual 225 °.

    Got my smoker going with about a chimney of charcoal then a split of pecan, I used my weed burner to get it going and heat up the smoker.

    I went a little different on my Rub today. I went more Brisket Style, Salt, Pepper and a little of my rub (Mostly S&P)

    I don’t inject, no need Butts have plenty of fat and I want to taste Pork, not Beef broth, Dr. Pepper Fruit Juice or anything else just pork. Not to say that sometimes I will do a different flavor profile, But not today.

    Got it going at 9:00 AM  (Pretty Late)

    Put Beans and Hot Links (Homemade) on at 11:00 AM

    (Link to my Beans) http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/201533/garys-smoked-baked-beans

    Pulled Links off after about an hour and a half.

    I Maintained 275° throughout the first 5 hours.

    Pulled Butt after 5 hours and wrapped in foil then back on.

    Added another couple of splits and now waiting.

    Pulled it at 5:00 PM   Perfect

    Let it rest for about 45 min.    Great bark, super juicy and great flavor.

    Lite on my rub Heavy on the S&P

    Smoking at 275 º

    2 hours in, just put on the beans

    Beans are Ready

    Hot links are ready too

    Butt after 5 Hours   Great Bark

    At 5 hours cooking at 275 º  IT was 158 º - 160 º    I never check the temp

    Just did it for the post.  I know when its ready when I can wiggle the bone.

    After 8 hours

    Bone pulled out clean

    You can see how juicy and tender it is

    Pulled with the bark mixed all through

    And Finally  MY PLATE   Pulled Pork Sandwich, beans and cole slaw

    Thanks for Looking

    Man that looks excellent Gary. As I sit here eating an iron skillet chicken breast, I can only imagine how great your meal tastes.

    I've never smoked beans before. I'll have to give that a go sometime.

    Nice job!

    Hey Gary


    Beautiful job.  That bark looks great, and so much of it. Mix that in with all that juicy meat, and I'm guessing the PP was real delicious.  Good thing we just finished eating, or I would be drooling all over my computer.

    Pulled Pork with coleslaw is one of my favorite foods.

    That's one advantage of your smoker over my MES--the bark.  I can get some, but nowhere like yours.  Great job.

    Boy does that look good!

    I just the last of my pulled pork tonight in some chilli. I noticed yesterday at Sam's that they had pork shoulder/Boston butts on sale at $1.69. Quests there I going tomorrow! Don't know when I'll cook it, but it won't be to far in the future -- I love my porkie sans witches for lunch!
  8. Lookin good! Did you notice any difference in the taste/texture of the meat cooking at 275 instead of 225?

    Nice looking pulled pork, we had PP sandwichs for lunch today. I always forget how good it is till I take that first bite, then I wonder why I even have sanddwich meat in the reefer.

    Great looking meal.
