Pulled Pork

Post by Gray Goat » Thu Apr 03, 2014 04:31

The weather finally broke, so I decided to use a few pork butts for something other than sausage :shock: :lol:

I put on my favorite rub and wrapped them, then into the fridge overnite. The next morning, they are good to go.

Image

I loaded up the BGE with lump charcoal and a few chunks of peach wood

Image

Pork butts on and the smoke is starting

Image

After six hrs they hit an IT of 195° and were very tender, so off they came

Image

I double wrapped them in foil and let them sit in a cooler for a few hrs. Then I pulled them and added the liquid from the foil to some vinegar and spice rub and seasoned the pork with the mixture.

We haven't had any pulled pork for quite some time so it was a nice change :grin:

Boy howdy, that's a nice lookin' piece of work for being where the grass don't grow for quite some time yet. My wife lived in Chicago for about eleven years so I know for a fact that most folks from that area are not normal. Nice to see a BGE getting some pub, I was looking at getting one a couple years back and just couldn't pull the trigger. I love pulled pork! RAY

GG that is some fine looking pulled pork going to be a real treat on some good buns.

I prefer to smoke and roast in an enameled roasting pan so that all of the dripping stays with the meat.

Hey, hey, Goat Man! Way to go. Wow, the smoke really makes the difference eh? Worth it all. Bon Appetit brother!

Best Wishes,
