  1. Pulled Butt Ham, Had to give this one a try. I would like to thank Bear again for his fantastic Step by Step's

    (His Link) http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/138526/buckboard-bacon-and-pulled-cured-boston-butt-ham

    Started with a Butt from Sam's, de-boned and split it. Half for Buck Board Bacon the other for Cured Butt Ham

    Rubbed with proper amount of T Q and Brown Sugar bagged and in the fridge for 8 days, turning each day

    Day 9 out of the fridge, rinsed and soaked for about 45 min. patted dry seasoned with a little garlic powder and black pepper

    on the drying rack and back in the fridge for a day.

    Fired up smoker, pulled butt out of fridge and let sit under a fan till smoker comes to temp.

    Smoker at 125 º Put meat on, added pecan and maple chunks

    Note: I was also smoking the BBB and was cooking Beef Ribs later on.

    Smoked BBB for 6 hours till IT was 120 º Pulled the BBB and added more lump and a split of Pecan cranking the 

    temp up to 225 º 

    Put on Beef Ribs, Took Butt Ham put in foil pan added pineapple rings and juice, covered in foil and back on the smoker.

    Cooked till IT was 205 º took about 5 more hours, Here are a few pics.
