    My wife and I had a hankering for a pulled pork pizza, so I grabbed an 8 lbs'r and a can of cocunut juice, and decided to do an overnight smoke.

    After a maple syrup lather, I went half & half 3 little pigs KC CHamp & KC Sweet for the rub

    Injected a butt w/ this awhile back. Decided to try it again.

    Scored the fat cap, filled the channels in with brown sugar

    After a couple mins on the smoker

    Put it on at 8:30 pm Sat night. At 8 am the next morn it hit 165. I was running the Pitmaster iQue @ about 215 degrees

    Nice color smoke ring. Great bark from the rub.

    Big ass bowl o' pork

    I picked up a jar of Blues Hog BBQ Sauce after several recommendations. It's a got a very unique taste. Much different than what my grocery store offers.

    Check out the ingredients. A lot of common players, but then you see there's Anchovies, and Tamarind in it.

    Laid out a pillsbury pizza dough, w/ just over a half cup of Blues Hog over the top

    A healthy portion of mozeralla and pulled pork

    450 degrees for about 10 mins, and here's the finished product

    The pizza turned out great. Different than the last one I did like this. The blues hog has a stand-out taste of honey or molasses at first, then the pepper hits you at the end. Good stuff! I love some SBR's, but this was definitely a nice change of pace. For those who don't feel like messin w/ making a sauce someday should keep a jar of this in the fridge.

    I was a little disappointed in the shoulder. I think Costco/Sams quality is noticeably better than the "enhanced" grocery store butts. Nevertheless, I'll have plenty of ways to make some fun leftovers

    Sweet looking pizza and pork. You are really selling me on that Pitmaster iQue. So did you have to tend to the UDS at all? Man it would be nice just to throw on the meat and go to bed and get up the next morning and its almost done.

    No tending at all. It's going to change your smoking even though UDS's aren't high maintenance. It's great to get something out of fridge, start up chimney, throw it in drum, put meat on, set dial and go to bed. Also, there's nothign like waking up to TBS early the next morning, and a piece of meat smoked to perfection 10 hours later.
