Some Pulled Pork With Qview

Discussion in 'Pork' started by peanut72, May 5, 2010.

  1. Ok so this is my second smoke and the first attempt at doing some pulled pork.
    -I started out with about a 4 lb picnic.

    -I whipped up a batch of Jeff's famous rub, slathered on some mustard and gave it a nice coating of the rub.

    -I wrapped it up nice and tight in some saran wrap and stuck it in the fridge overnight.

    -Took it out this morning as i was getting things fired up. I used a combo of Oak and Hickory for smoke and both lump and briq's for heat

    -I had a little trouble with the temps being a little high at first but finally got it under control sort of. It started out at almost 300, but finally leveld out at just a shade over 250 according to my thermometer. The stock temp guage read dead up at center of ideal so i figure im in good shape.

    -While it was out there and between the baby tugging on my leg I managed to make a batch of Jeffs "GGSA" BBQ Sauce.

    -I gave it a little spritzer of apple juice every now and then and finally wrapped it up in foil at about 175

    -I left it on the smoker until it hit 185 and the temps in the smoker kept dropping until it was at 200. I think this was because the charcoal pan was getting full. Even with the raised grate. Tried to get temps up so I could leave it on the entire time, but just didnt feel like fighting it so I brought it in the house and put in in the oven at 240 to finish it off.

    -It just now came out of the oven at 199 and sitting on the counter resting before i pull. The house smells soooo good right now and I am starving. Cant wait to get into this stuff.

    Here are the pics I have to this point, will post finished product later.

    Looks tasty! Looks right on the mark with some awesome bark!!

    Hope you post some of the puled pics.
  6. Fresh off the rest period


    Overall I will call this a success. Especially for my second time using the smoker and first attempt at pulled pork. I think I hit it just a little too much with the somke maybe. I Just picked at a few pieces and the park pieces are pretty strong, but the inner pieces arent too bad. I figure all mixed together it should make a good sandwich. Can the liquid left in the bottom of the pan be poured back in with the meat? Kinda sounds like a dumb question now that I aske it, but im gonna leave it out there.

  7. Those pan juices can definitely (and should in my opinion) be mixed back in with the PP.

    Good job!

    What I'd suggest with the juices in the foil is to put them in a measuring cup and place it in the freezer for a little while as it cools the fat will congeal on the top once thats done scrape it off then microwave the juices till hot again and pour over the pulled meat. By the way it looks great!!
  9. Ok, so dinner is served. Overall Im happy with the way it turned out. The sauce is a little sweet for my taste, but I know what to do different next time. the pork turned out great, made an out-freaking-standing sandwich. Here are the final pics. I even included my little helper, i guess cooking wears him out.

    Dinner served

  12. Well its official. I just got back from moms and they all agree there that it was good. I even told them to let me know something needed to be done different so next time i could fix it and they still insisted it was great. even the old man said it was just right. And the wife gives it a ten. So thanks goes out to you guys for doing all the hard work for me and showing me how to do it and and supplying me with the recipies. All I had to do was keep a little smoke going.

    The one thing i hope to not do next time is lay my arm down on a hot coal. There was one random dime size piece of charcoal laying on the ground after i moved the smoker and i sat my forearm down right on top of it. that stings a little!!
