Pulled pork for the Deer Shack w/ Qview

Discussion in 'Pork' started by bigfish98, Nov 6, 2011.

  1. I took the ecourse and now have applied my learnin'!  I picked up 15 pounds of boneless pork shoulder from the local grocery and rubbed it down with some yellow mustard and Jeff's rib rub.  Placed the two butts in separate pans, and loaded them into my MES 40 at 230 degrees at around 7:30 PM last Thursday.  I had sick little helper so I was off work Friday.  I smoked them using cherry and hickory chips (my amnps came in the mail Friday after the butts were done.  THANKS TODD!!!  I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY IT OUT!!!!!) for about the first 4 hours.  Once they hit 140 degrees, I foiled the pans and went to bed.  Got up at 6:30 the next morning as the wife was getting ready for work and the butts were at 180 degrees.  They climbed slowly throughout the morning until they hit 185.  Then came the dreaded "plateau".  They sat at 185 from about 8 until 12:30 pm.  As the whole family was going to be heading to my in laws for deer season opener later that afternoon, I bumped the heat up in the MES to 275.  Finally, at about 2:45 pm, they hit 200 degrees.  I pulled them from the smoker and let them sit until about 3:30.  That didn't leave me a lot of time to pull it so I decided to hold off on pulling it until the next day.  I placed each butt in a separate tupperware container with its juices and into the cooler they went (along with the pastrami and rare roast beef I had smoked the week previous) and we headed to the in laws.  The next day, my beautiful wife took care of scraping the fat that had congealed on top of the au jus and pulling the pork.  The guys at the deer shack were very happy with the final product and they really enjoyed the pastrami and roast beef.  I am thinking may some ABTs for next weekend!!

    And so it begins.....
