  1. Well, I think I finally blooded my smoker last night…I kicked some butt!


    Here we are at 1:00 am
     
  2. Here I am at 4:30 am, we have attained 160°… time for foil
     
  3. Pulled her at 7:00 am…200°, toweled and now ve vill spend some time in ze Kooler! unpacked her at 4:30 in the afternoon…still 150° Notice, she broke in half lifting her out of the foil! Talk about tender!
     
  4. Pull 2…Eat 1
     
  5. Whipped up a little of TJ’s finishing sauce, but already had plenty of juice as you can see, and finally sat down to some bread & butter corn, taters au grautin and some homemade slaw…didn’t even use any sauce!
    I’m like a pig in ? And I gotta say, thanks guys, for all your help! Really!
    Here this is for you, You want a nice cold Penn Pilsner to go with that?

    Excellent!! Good Looking Stuff.

    What, no IC Light? (I lived 75 mile NE of Pittsburgh for 20 years. Then I moved here to the winter capitol of the whole northeast. I miss IC.)

    Best regards,

    Meowey

    Great looking grub!! I've done one butt, and it didn't look like that. I have a good feeling that number 2 will be closer to perfection with a little inspiration from you!! Thanks for sharing...

    You know your food must look good when the only comment from this group is about your choice of drink. You make a great looking plate, and I firmly believe that BBQ with out sauce is very fine BBQ. You have the confidence that the meat can be a star on its own.

    For me, no slaw, but an extra pickle would be nice. A cold one would be better.

    sweet job!!!! what temp were you smoking at?
     
  14. I was smoking about 230°.
     
  15. Looks great. Is that a Boston Butt Pork Roast?
     
  16. Yep, I’ve heard them called that…to me it’s just a pork butt. They all eat the same :)

    Awesome looking!!! Where's your Iron City? I can send some Yuengling out to ya if ya can't get it out there in Pitt! That pork looks awesome. Where did you find a sauce recipe in here? I've seen a couple, but haven't seen the one you referenced. Did you do a finishing sauce?
     
  18. Sorry, never cared for Iron, now my bro-in-law! (another story!)
    Actually I was weaned on National Bohemian (I’m originally from Maryland). However, I’ve been known to tip a few black & tans! I just really like Penn Pilsner–it’s from one of those macro breweries here on the North Side.


    That finishing sauce can be found under:
    Smoking Meat (and other things)
    Pork
    Finishing Sauce (for Pulled Pork) by SoFlaQuer
    I found it real tasty-but don’t use the whole batch at once, it could get real vinegary if you used it all!

    What no baked beans? :D It looks delicious. Thanks for posting...
    I am not much of a cole slaw guy...My wife loves it...I have my first ever pork butt roast on still. I put it on at 7am this morning. I hope it looks as half as good as yours. I have also mixed up Dutch's receipe for the Wicked Baked Beans and they are in the smoker.. So in a couple hours, I am going to try and pull the pork and start eating. I have also made a batch of the finishing sauce to try...Keep up the good work and keep posting...It helps us that are still learning the techniques....

    Thanks again,
    Steve
