  1. Cured, Smoked & Pulled Pork Butt
    I had a half of a Butt Curing in the fridge, Today was it's big day.
    Butt cured for 8 days, Pulled it out this morning rinsed and soaked it, patted it dry and put a light coat of Garlic, onion & honey powder along with some black pepper. Let it sit in the fridge a couple of hours while I did a few other things.

    Fired up the smoker with a chimney of lit charcoal and a big split of Pecan, got up to 225º pretty quick, 

    Put the meat and beans on.

    Didn't do a step by step, since I have done one before  (JUST FOLLOW BEAR'S STEP BY STEP)

    Started with a whole butt

    De-boned and removed a little fat

    Split in half

    Weighing so I can get my TQ and Brown sugar measured correctly

    Half a butt rubbed and in the zip-lock to cure

    After 8 days rinsed, soaked, dried and seasoned​
    Waiting to go on the smoker

    Beans ready and waiting

    Butt and Beans on

    Have to have a little Boudin !!!

    Everything on

    Beans ready

    Added Pineapple rings and juice, cover with foil and back on the smoker

    Butt ready,  Had to take a fey links and 1/2 the beans over to #2 son's 

    since he had ribs going on his smoker

    Look at that beautiful pork   Wow !!   you can see the steam

    And my plate

    A BIG Shout Out to Bear for his great step by step. I guarantee you will love this

    the flavor is outstanding

    Thanks for looking

    Sorry I'm late, but this was posted 14 hours ago, and this is the first time I've been on here since before Penn State lost to #1 Ohio State. (15 hours ago)

    Dang, Gary---That all looks sooooo good !!![​IMG]-----------------[​IMG]

    I love Pulled Butt Ham, and yours looks Awesome!![​IMG]

    Those Pineapple Rings don't hurt anything either!![​IMG]

  3. Thanks Buddy, after all it's your Recipe.   I'm not saying this because I cooked it, all I do is follow your step by step   BUT THIS STUFF IS FANTASTIC,  you ever make it once I promise it wont be your last.  The only thing I added was a ham glaze.

    Yeh I knew I should have waited to post, with all the football games going on, but oh-well

    And thank you and Brian for the point

    This post inspired me so much that I threw a chunk of pork cushion into some brine last night. Can't wait to try it!

    Looks wonderful! I'll be checking Bear's step by right now!
    Uh, what happened to the other half?
  11.  As bad as I hate to admit it I baked it in the oven,  I know, I know    But I have to keep peace.  A while back I got banned from smoking, so I don't want to mess that up again

    BTW   I'll be smoking a whole butt in a couple of days  for some friends of ours.  (Not Cured)

    We cook then in the oven from time to time. Kinda like them that way
  13. Hey, that works, I've done that from time to time

    Totally understand, Gary! A few weeks ago I pulled a rack of ribs from the freezer and Mary Lou said she wanted to do them in the NuWave instead and was kind of tired of everything smoked all the time. Give and take is what it's all about!

    They're actually pretty good that way. Strange machine, but she does wonders with it.

    Hmmm. I have a good amount of tender quick left over from a sausage making party. Pork butts are kinda cheap right now. Maybe I'll give this a try.
  17. Yeah I looked at the Grocery store flyer, this week Pork Butts are $.99 lb
