Pork Butt and Spares

Discussion in 'Pork' started by jacobtia, Sep 5, 2011.

  1. Hello fellow smokers! It has been 3 months since I have posted....for that I am sorry! Summers are just a lil busy around my place. And since the school year has started again I have a little extra time to share some smoke with ya'll!

    So here it is. I picked up a 4.5lb butt yesterday and had some spares in the freezer from a recent sale! 1.79 a pound! Gotta love that price for spares!

    I didn't get any pics of the rub down! Due to the fact that my wife and I didn't get home till 12am after a trip to the dirt track fpr some races! None the less I got em rubbed down with my own special recipe and put em to bed for a little rest.

    Here's where they are now. 11:30am...Butt's been on since 9:30 and the spares went on at 11. I'll keep the q-view comin'

    I also have a batch of BBQ sauce going. I took my recipe X5 I'll be canning 2 pints of the extra.

    And if I am gonna have the smoker going I can't go with out some ABT's!

    Not the greatest pic....Sun was at my back...But the ABT's were on and I added a lil extra brown sugar to the ribs...I was out of foil for some unknown reason so what better reason than to try spares no foil!

    Ladies and Gentlemen.................The Money Shot! Also featured are home grown heirloom tomatoes, garden green beans from the slow cooker with ham and red potatoes, tweaked out Bush's baked beans, and a baked tater(2 spuds....I know seems odd, but, I love my taters)!

    My brother in law says.................."You don't need teeth to eat Crezy Jake's Ribs!"

    And no.....I haven't forgot to give you an update on the butt....Here it is sitting at 197. And again since I was out of foil there was no better time to try pork butt no foil! The bark looks amazing!

    The butt finished while we ate some tasty ribs. I pulled it at 209 at 5:30pm. Then I let it rest till about 8:45(the pulled pork is tomorrow night's dinner). Here is the end result after pulling....

    Here is my view on the no foil ribs and butt......I thought the ribs a little bit more pull than I like. They were still extremely tender but I like em with a slight pull. The bark however was amazing! So, next time I am going to do a 3-1-2 method. The butt however I WILL NEVER FOIL AGAIN! I like the faster cook time when foiled but I loved the bark I had on the no foil method. Man the bark was so good it was hard not to eat it all while I was pulling it! Well, I hope you enjoyed! I know I did!
