Saturday's Pulled Pork w/Q-Views

Discussion in 'Pork' started by mj-air23, Oct 21, 2007.

  1. Okay guys and gals here it is...I smoked a 8# Pork Butt using Hickory and Apple wood. Cooked it till 145 degrees then foiled it and finished it off in oven until internal temp was around 200 degrees. It came out of the oven at around 1:00 AM and at 2:00 AM this morning I pulled it. Bone came out effortlessly and meat pulled beautifully. It took about 14 hours to cook at 225 degrees. This is my second Butt and it was definitely better than the first! I used Jeff's Rub very generously and it definitely gave it a great tasting bark. I plan to use his finishing sauce tomorrow when we have the pulled pork for supper. Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions, and thanks to Jeff for a wonderful rub! ...This is a great site with great people! I have attached Q-Views of the finished product. I have pics of the pulled pork itself, the Au-Jus, and the lonely bone that basically fell out of the meat. The only problem I had was not eating too much as I was pulling the meat![​IMG] Enjoy!!

    Nice job! Looks like yer well on yer way to being famous for "Q"! BTW, electric stove? Ugh... Not wishing any misfortune, but if that thing ever needs service, just get gas.. :{) WITH an electric oven ideally... Once ya get used to gas, it's amazing how much easier it is to cook over.

    On edit: Hmm yanno, I guess I just take for granted natural gas is available everywhere. Guess there might be a reason for the electric... and people I know with "pigs" for LP are dyin' with the price increases this year... sigh.

    You did good!! You and I have the same problem...what I call "Pulled Pork Impatience". I'm always tasting bits and pieces when I'm pulling it apart, especially the bark! The q-view made me drool [​IMG]
