My First Pork Butt Q with Qview and BearView

Discussion in 'Pork' started by ptcruiserguy, Sep 24, 2011.

  1. Okay, I decided to do a pork butt for PP.

    I used Jeffs rub on it last night kept it wrapped and in fridge till 5:00am.

    Cooked it at 235 using Hickory.

    after about 5 1/2 hrs it got to temp 165*.

    Wrapped it in foil, then put it back in and dropped temp to 230 for the remainder.

    Finally pulled it out about 5:30 pm wrapped in foil again and put towell around it and put in cooler for 2 hrs.

    In the process I decided on Smoked Mac and Cheese. Using a recipe I found on here ( can't remember who's, sorry bout that).

    Now for the food line up.



    Rubbed and ready for smoker


    Mac & Cheese before


    Wrapping in foil and going back in smoker for second round.


    After being wrapped for 2 hrs and ready for pulling


    PP money shot. Added a finishing sauce, and ready to serve. (mmmmm, and it is soooo goooood)


    Smoked baked Mac & cheese.

    I would have never been able to accomplish this feast, if it were not for all the advice I have read here.

    You all are great, and beginning to make me a good cook.

    Thanks to all

  5. Lol, well the mac & cheese is gone, but I have more then 1/2 of the Q left.

    I was hoping that would happen like that so I could freeze some of it.

    nice job.   It all looks great.

  11. well actually Teez, it was a little drier then I wanted. Next time I will add just a tad more milk and cut the cook time down by maybe 30 mins.

    It was all fantastic though.
