    My mother in law asked me if I would smoke some pulled pork for a work party she is having.  Of course I couldn't say no.  Sorry no before pics, but here are some of it ready to go.

    2 butts,17.5 lbs total precook weight, trimmed of most of the heavy fat. started at 8:45 pm last night and pulled of the WSM at 12:45 today, 16 hrs.  206 IT when taken of the WSM, foiled, toweled, and in the cooler, three hrs later still 186 IT and too hot to pull with bare hands.  


    Pulled and in the roaster.


    Here is the bone

    The pulled pork looks amazing. I can't believe it takes 16 hours to cook though? Isn't there a faster way to do this?

    You can cook it faster at a higher temp, but I think low and slow is the best for most things on the smoker, I try to dial my smoker in around 225-230 if I can.  However, my chicken is cooked around 275.

     That is a long time, or did you not foil either?? That will definitely make a difference.

    EDIT: saw you foiled.  I have actually done an 8 1/2 lb butt in 9 1/2 hours now. After reaching 170º internal and foiling took the smoker up to 295º. Saw no difference in the taste of the meat or its smokiness.

    You are correct flash I did not foil this one until I pulled it off the smoker, so no foil at 6-ish hours on this one.  I do it sometimes, and when I do it will tend to shave a couple hrs off typically.

    Nice catch Flash
