    Pork Butt Roast 4.4 Lbs.
    12 hrs prior, mustard and GrillMates Pork Rub & a pinch of Slap Ya Mama [ Go easy. It's HOT. ]
    Back in fridge.
    Saved some of the drippings in a water pan for use in re-heating PP later.
    Smoked with hickory for total of 12.5 hours. Very slow going the last 4 hrs.
    Sprayed it every hour with a 3 to 1 mix of apple juice and Captain Morgan’s Original spiced rum.

    At 165F wraped it in Heavy Duty aluminum foil.
    Put some of the spray in the foil to help braise the meat.
    Put in a pan in the oven set at 250F.
    Continued to cook in oven until the internal meat temps got to 200F ( 2.5 hours. )

    Removed foiled meat from oven, wraped it (still foiled) in a couple old bath towels and
    put it in insulated cooler to rest for an hour before we pulled it.

    From "Backyard BBQ" by Richard McPeake
    Twice Smoked Pulled Pork
    "I have won numerous ribbons and awards for my twice smoked pulled pork. You can't go wrong with this winner!"
    "Remove from smoker, allow the meat to cool (in the foil), once cooled, hand pull. Allow meat to stay in large pulled chunks. Place the pan back into smoker about 1 hour before service to increase the smoke flavor. Just before the service toss the meat well."

    I like pulling the butts when cold, (I mean fridge overnight cold) you can pick out alot of fat that way.

    I smoke butts the day before a party to make it easier on myself, pull them in the morning while cold, then put in disposable alumminum pans with sauce and warm up in the smoker next to a couple fatties, or ribs somthing that dosnt take forever. I guess that would be twice smoked

    Also doing it this way ensures that we can eat at a set time...those women always want a "time when it will be ready".
  10. Very well done. Man am I ready for a PP Samitch!
