    Howdy. I've been smoking pork butts for pulled pork for a little while now and finally have some qview.
    Did one last weekend. Came out perfect.
    Technique: Bilbo's rub prior to smoking. Smoke at 225º to 245º until internal temp hits 165º (~9 hours). Spray with apple juice every hour or so. Remove from smoker, spray heavily with apple juice, wrap tightly in foil. Into the oven at 250º until internal temp hits 205º (~2-4 hours).
    Remove from oven, keep wrapped, let cool slowly to around 165º or so. Unwrap and pull with 2 forks. Save juice that accumulates in foil in oven; decant and save. Makes a great flavoring consumme.

    Finishing sauce:
    1/2 C Cider Vinegar
    1/2 C water
    1/2 C catsup
    1/4 C apple juice
    1/2 C brown sugar
    1/3 C sweet pickle juice
    1-2 tbsp meat drippings from the smoked pork butt
    1 tsp Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning
    Black Pepper
    Red Pepper Flakes
    Hot sauce to taste
    Heated up just enough to combine.
    1 tbsp butter at the end melted into the sauce off heat

    Pretty yuummy!
