May 20th-Smokin 30# of pork butts

Discussion in 'Pork' started by smokeeater, May 20, 2007.

  1. I got 4 butts (a little over 30# before trimming) in the smoker. Put the largest butt on the bottom rack, smallest on the top, and the last two of the same size in the middle. I used TulsaJeff's pork rub (from his pulled pork recipe with coleslaw)and I will be using Fla-Jeff's finishing sauce. I am gonna make Jeff's coleslaw and a couple bottles of his smokey BBQ sauce, both from the same recipe page above.

    I rubbed the butts last night, first with mustard and then Jeff's spicy rub. I didn't have alot of cellophane, so I stuffed each butt in a gallon ziplock bag. All but (or butt) one fit nicely - the last one required a second bag and wouldn't seal. Worked nicely!

    Delightful, simply delightful!

    Might I guess that this treat is for your fellow heroes? Good going and best of luck and God Bless You All!

  10. Thank you!

    We have a softball game tomorrow, between my firehouse and a neighboring house. I got the food! They got the easy part - drinks! Gonna pick up some fresh rolls tomorrow from the bakery.

    Brought the butts inside and they are in the oven and foiled. Biggest butt is almost 160°, and a smaller one is about 165°. Only a couple hours left to go. Can't wait till tomorrow!

  14. Coming up on 14 hours. Two butts are in the cooler resting. Two more are in the oven and crawling their way up towards 190°F. Good thing I can sleep past 9am tomorrow!
  15. Just finished pulling the first two butts. Another two resting - to be pulled shortly. Here's some porn!

    Update: Almost 2am and just wrapping up. Longer than expected, but seems it always is. It's well worth it though! BTW, I used hickory & cherry chunks for smoke.
