Classic Pork Butt with a Q-view.....

Discussion in 'Pork' started by ejbreeze, Jul 30, 2011.

  1. I am going to smoke a small butt in the morning for pulled pork sandwiches.  I am going to follow the classic recipe that most of you senior smokers use.

    When I unwrapped the meat I found one of those pop -ups stuck into it.  Has anyone ever tried this when smoking.

    I rubbed it down with mustard first.

    I then covered it with a rub in hopes of achieving the classic bark.

    In the fridge and we will see ya all in the morning.  I'll start the coffee.

  6. Just stuck the probe in her after 4 1/2 on the smoker.  The temp is 151.  Should I hit it with apple juice and the captain every hour or does it really make that much difference?

    The apple juice is your call I put mine in when  I foil it for a couple of hours and let her sleep in a cooler.
