#1556122 Smoked pork butt!

Posted by NeedsWork on Today, 02:43 PM

Finished product.  I can tell that I rushed it by pushing the temps.  The brazing liquid reduced into a great sauce!   

 

Almost no heat.  Very mild flavor, pork forward, rub middle, and smoke finish.

The butt went on at 5am.  After the four hour mark, I decided to try a brazing liquid like Mike's: http://thehotpepper....-smoker/page-13

Thanks! Rub was a little salty for my taste but everyone else liked it.

Cooked a prime rib tonight on the offset.  Two bone took about 5 hours to reach 130 by the bones which was a nice medium rare.  

 

I cooked it bone side down, toward the fire.  I trimmed most of the fat off before cooking.

Still no Butt pics?

 

Where ya at NeedsWork?

 

I knew I was forgetting something last night!

 

 

I slept through my alarm Sunday morning - so the butt didn't go on until 8am.  I cooked it hotter than usual at ~275F.  Being my first cook on the $30 stick burner, there was more temp fluctuation than I would have liked.  I used random hardwood firewood for most of the cook. 

 

My independent food critic (my wife) said it was my best butt to date.

 

We served it picnic style with jalapeño cheddar andouille cornbread, chipotle mac & cheese, and micheladas.  :cheers:

Nothing special this time - using almost the same method and extra rub from the last one.  No brine this time.  I wasn't as aggressive with the trimming because this is my first cook on the new setup.
