Here is my Saturday plan for my first pulled pork:
Have a beer
Slather my butt w/ yellow mustard and Jeffs rub
Have a beer
Smoke my butt w/ apple wood till it 160ish and wrap w/ foil till 200
Have beers
Pull from smoker wrap w/ towel and put in cooler (ice chest) for 1-2 hrs.
Have beers
Pull and apply florida jeffs finishing sauce
Serve w/ a jack and coke and Jeffs bbq warm on the side
I think I have it.
Any suggestions to my Saturday plans?
I like apple wood but is this what I want to use for pulled pork?
I have one suggestion...

Liquor before beer, your in the clear
Beer before liquir, never sicker.

Other than that, it sounds like a plan!

Apple is awesome on pulled pork!
You might need a few more Beers but if your Q-pics start getting out of focus
and crooked were going to cut you off and we'll drink your Beers
no beer run needed. I have a fresh 30pack of bud in the fridge. i will put the mustard on the pork butt. The wife already looks at me funny and i do not want to scare the kids. All bets are off if i finish the 30pack.
ok seriously now, I love jeffs rub on ribs but I have not used on anything else and I have never done pulled pork before so is the rub good to use and spray it w/ apple juice every hour or so like i do ribs?

The direction you initially indicated should produce some fine pulled pork. Jeff's finishing sauce really adds great flavor to the pork. Just one other observation ..... it's all a matter of personal preference and what works for you but I also like to use cherry or my old favorite hickory wood for smoking pork. You might want to give it a try. Enjoy!
done. came out wonderful. no pix. i do not need the razzing from the wife about being a dork. even thou her hobbie is scrapbooking which is all pix. anyway, I did as above smoked at 235ish over apple. when i wrapped in foil i sprayed the butt w/ a LOT of apple juice which i kept the foil dripping and poured into the pulled pork. i did not have the nerve to pour the finish sauce into the meat. I put it on the table and we added as we wanted along w/ the q sauce. The wife and i liked it. next time i will add the finish sauce. the finishing sauce recipe made much more than i think my 4lbs butt could handle. next time i will add 1/2 the amount and give a true try. I will probably use hickory next time since the apple is such a light flavor that we did not really taste the smoke but the meat was wonderful. it seemed easier and less work than the ribs that i have been doing. It does keep you home all day. got a lot of yard work done between adding wood and spritzing the meat. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
