    First off this is not my normal Q-view overload as most of my pics weren't recognized by the computer. Not sure if it's a camera issue or the computer cuz im no techy.

    Anyways I love pulled pork but ever since getting bit by the Buckboard bug I've been curing every piece of butt/shoulder that I buy. I am totally hooked on bucky and so are my friends and family. Lately I've seen alot of pulled pork on the pages of SMF and I couldn't take it anymore. I needed a pulled pork sammie.

    It was an 8lb bone in that I injected with apple juice, rubbed with apple juice then a mix of garlic powder, onion powder, kosher salt, pepper and brown sugar. Let rest overnight and into the MES at 8am. I read some old threads here about people throwing charcoal in an electric to get a smoke ring. Along with the pecan chips I broke up three charcoal briquetts and added them throughout the smoke just for grins. I actually got a little bit of "wannabe" smoke ring. Too bad my "Bear Views" of the smoke ring have vanished along with my prep pics.

     Smoked at 230 and foiled at 167. 12 1/2 hours later it was at 196 and I didn't have patience to let it hit 200-205. I needed a sammie.

    Made SoFla Quer's finishing sauce and it will forever be part of my pulled pork smokes. Amazing!

    Btw JJ today was the first time I placed the pork in a foil pan and covered with foil for the foil period. Normally I take it in, wrap it tightly in a couple layers of foil and take it back out and put it in the smoker. I read the pan suggestion made by you in someone elses thread and decided to try it. Much easier and it wasn't as messy when adding the apple juice.

    Thanks for the tip(even though it was on someone elses thread.)

    Thanks for all the kind words guys. Really wish you could've seen it all pulled in a big bowl and the "Bear View" of the sammie, open faced with melted mozzarella and provolone.

    nicely done Teez.....great pics......two questions......did you have a water pan in there while it was smoking?       and can you post the recipe for SoFla Quer's finishing sauce, I've seen that mentioned before but not exactly sure what it is?  thanks      [​IMG]

    Hey Slicer,

    I poured some apple juice/captain morgan  in the water pan for some apple rum steam but I also sat a foil pan under the pork to catch the drippings. I save the drippings to pour over the pork when I reheat leftovers in the crock pot. Helps keep it super moist.

    Here's the link to SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/51933/soflaquer-s-finishing-sauce-for-pulled-pork  , I doubled the recipe so I had some in the fridge for next time. If you like a spicy, vinegar based sauce then this is it. its not a traditional BBQ sauce by any means but I found it was all I needed.
