I'm pretty new to smoking and am doing my second ever batch of pulled pork for an engagement party. The first batch went well as I really just followed cooking directions my dad gave me. As I'm getting more into the idea of smoking I decide I want to make it my own so to speak. In doing so I've read dozens of recipes and methods for pulled pork and to summarize it seems like there are so many decisions to make that vary from person to person. I wanted to know you guy's opinion on these different options Meat Selection- Boston Butt or Picnic? Bone in or boneless? Over night meat preparation- Rub with mustard or rub without mustard or rub with vegetable oil or brine or not at all? Inject? Smoker Placement- Fat up, fat down, or fat trimmed? Mid-smoking- Mop or not? If you are with a brush or spray? Foil or no foil (aka Texas crutch)? Post-smoking- How long to let it sit? Did I capture everything? Right now I'm planning on buying boneless boston butt from Costco (only reason why it will be boneless), rubbing with mustard overnight and injecting with applejuice mixture, placing on the smoker fat down with not mopping or texas crutch and letting it sit for an hour on the counter before pulling. What do you guys think?
