Boston Butts for work - QView (bragging post)

Discussion in 'Pork' started by twistedx, Apr 30, 2013.

  1. I did 4 butts, 4 chickens, 3 dozen eggs, and a block of gouda.

    2 of the butts injected and rubbed.


    Butt's nearing 160 (almost time to wrap) - below the butts, is an experiment of jalepenos and spam.  Smoked jalepenos were good in my hot sauce and the spam was pretty good but I will go with the low sodium spam next time.


    The pork, chicken, and sauces at work.


    Smoked eggs and cheese at work.


    And I'll leave you with a small teaser - some tasty chicken wings.


    Thanks,

    Travis

  3. Those butts look beautiful. I can't get that "shiny" caramelized color on the outside of my butts. Any suggestions? More sugar in the rub maybe???

    This thread is enough to motivate me to throw some butts on the wsm next week when I am on vacation!

    Great job Travis!I bet everyone loved it. How many requests did you get?Bill
     

  6. I use a brown sugar called dark muscovado. You can order it from Amazon.


    And using more will probably help. when I make my rub I try to make sure I can taste each spice with salt and sweet being the main flavors.
     

  7. I cooked for about 75 people and I keep getting requests for me to cater family reunions, graduations, weddings, etc. it hasn't slowed down. but i tell them when it becomes work and it's not fun I quit. so i do what I can but I have twin one year old girls and a full time job. so my time is limited.
