First Boston Butt

Discussion in 'Pork' started by ljmaxx, Feb 19, 2012.

  1. I have had my Masterbuilt Electric Smoker for about 6 months but have never tried a Boston Butt.  I bought a good looking 7 pound butt at Publix and when I got home washed it with fresh water, applied lots of L&P Worcestershire Sauce, then rubbed it down with a homemade rub.   Put it in the fridge over night and in the morning put it in the smoker.   I also used an AMNS for extra smoke.  Ten hours later the piece of meat was at 180 degrees and ready to be wrapped in foil for an hour.   Turned out pretty good for my first BB.   Thanks for the info Johnnie.

    Looks dang good, but no pulling. You going for the sliced pork?
     
  6. Thanks for the comment and I fixed my profile.  My name is Jim, not Johnnie.  I was thanking Johnnie for telling me how to post a pic on this site.  I see you are in Sebring.  Love that area.  Any decent fish in the lake that is in Sebring  that US27 runs by on the west side?
     
  7. Thanks for the comment.  Yep sliced pork not pulled.  From what I've read I'd need to get the butt up to 195 or so.

     Yep 195º is a starting point, I tend to go 205º just to make sure. You do any saltwater fishing?
     
  10. Yes I do.  Love going after reds and have fished Cedar Key in the past but usually end up in Crystal River Area.  If you see this boat come over and say hello or maybe we can just go fishing in my boat.
