    After Our first ever seen, smelled and eaten pulled pork


    A continuation could not can stay away

    I went to the butcher with my picture in my hand
    And ordered 3 pieces, total weight 13 pounds
    yesterday I could bring them home

    I got them rubbed, back in the refrigerator for 13 hours
    I rubbed him with my universal rub

    This morning at 6:30 they went into the smoker
    Smoked with hicory

    I have done an experiment
    Two of them I wrap in alu foil at 169 F, and the other not

    And a half hours in the smoke

    Two hours in the smoke

    Three hours in the smoke

    Spraying with a mixture of 3 to 1 apple juice and whiskey

    Four hours in the smoke

    Five hours in the smoke

    Six hours in the smoke

    Eight hours in the smoke

    Ten hours in the smoke, 169 F time to foil

    Twelve and a half hours in the smoke, time to put it in a cooler

    The not foild piece just before the foil and cooler

    This is one of the two foild ones

    This is the meat of not foild one

    The foild ones were easier to pul
    were both good taste,the not foild one had more crust.
    I've enjoyed it back

    Thanks to watch

    looks like you did a fine job. Which one did you prefer- foiled or non foiled?

    I see that you like the butt for pulled pork. Now I didn't know that you couldn't get them there in Belgium. But they looked really good and I personally like my butts foiled.

    Good looking smoke! I still foil mine, just because (hopefully) it holds more juice.

    Very informational! That was a good experiment! Sounds like you proved that the foil method keeps more juice in the meat. I've only smoked one butt, but I will definitely try the foil next time.

    Good morning boys and girls

    The non foild one had slightly more flavor, my opinion
    But the other family members could taste no difference
    We all love more of the structure of the foild ones
    And they are a little better to pull

    In the future I will continue to foil them

    I know tastes is differences for everyone
    But this is the only Pulled pork that we've ever eaten

    Greetings Geert

    Looks great, thanks for the pictures.

    I'm wondering what type of wood you use or is available in Belgium?

    I can get through Weber to Hickoy wood,because the trees do not grow here.

    Mesquite I can get through weber also , but I use it no more, to strong
    Mesquite grow here also not

    Otherwise I use a lot of oak and beech,These are native trees

    Great experiment! At what temperature did you transfer your pork to the cooler? Did the foiled ones reach that temp at the same time as the unfoiled ones? How long did you rest them in the cooler?

    I've always done unfoiled, but simmered the pulled pork in a finishing sauce. I may have to give foiling a try!
