First Time Pulled Pork

  1. Tried a pork roast for pulled pork for the first time yesterday.  I only had a 3# boneless roast on hand but I thought it was big enough to experiment with.  I used Jeffs rib rub on it and I thought it was beautiful before it went into the smoker.  I used the same method that Jeff described as his "Big Mistake".  I smoked it in the Char-Broil offset for about three hours with cherry sawdust in a smoke pan I made from a fruit cake can.  It worked great!  Then it was into the oven at 225 until the meat temp was up to 208 (about three more hours).  I let it rest for about 45 minutes and then opened up the foil pack.  The meat was so juicy and tender that it was falling apart as I unwrapped it from the foil.  This is going to be supper tonight but I couldn't resist sampling as I was pulling it.  SUPERB!!!  It's going back in the oven to warm for several hours before supper and then the final judgement will be passed down by my wife and a couple of friends I've invited for supper.  I'll add latter just what that judgement is.  My wife is pretty picky when it comes to smoked anything so I hope she likes this.

    I'm sorry about no Q-view, but I don't own a camera that I could use to post pics with.  I wouldn't know to anyway.  I'll have to get the kids to help me out with that part of these posts in the future.

    It really sounds good, and since this is your second post we'll let you by this time with no Q-view. Seriously we live for Q-view!

  4. OK, sorry about the no Q-view, but even if I had a camera, I wouldn't know how to post pics. 

    Well, so supper is now over and done and my wife has decided that it was good.  My son even ate two sandwiches and he doesn't like pork.  I must have done something right.  I think the lighter flavor of the cherry was more to their liking.  In the past I've used hickory wood or a combination of woods and they complained that it was too smokey.  However the heavy smoke on my summer sausage they liked.  Go figure.
