Theedge does pulled pork Wed, 02/16/05 6:50 PM (permalink)
So I've really been getting into this smoking thing. Last month I was into ribs, this month it's pulled pork. Here is a 4.7 pound pork butt. I rubbed it with yellow mustard and an off the shelf pork rub. I put it in the smoker set at 225 from 7:00 pm, until 8:30 a.m. The internal temperature hit 200. The thing pulled apart beautifully, some of the best I've ever had. I'd like to do an 8 pounder and mop it a few times during the cooking process. It's a matter of having your timing down, heck I guess I'm always up at least once during the night anyways...

      Thanks, here is a pic of one of my earlier attempts. The pork wasn't as good as I didn't bring it up to the 190-200 range. But the sides we're tasty, can't eat that to often with out needing bigger pants.

        Looks pretty good! I cook 7 pounders at 205 for 15 hours. Ain't never had a bad 'un.

          Theedge,

          Your pictures are making me hungry. I know your efforts were rewarding!

          I have always enjoyed the whole ritual of smoking meat.

            Theedge: Looks really go to me. Why don't you join the Glee Club in Lexington, TN on Saturday morning and share your success.

                Good job!Thanks for the pictures. I tried a pulled pork yesterday from a new place in the area and it was the driest glop I ever had, yours looks perfect.

                  Thanks guys - Sundancer7 I've been trying to sing, boy I'm just not very good. Been playing piano for 27 years, so I really wish I could. I've even got a little PA set up in the basement with my electric piano...after a few cockails I think I sound just ok.

                    Thanks for getting the gastric juices rolling!! I was introduced to BBQ years ago while stationed in Arkansas, a local friends folks ran a Qshack, my fondest gluttony memories are of a creation we called a barcheburger, a cheeseburger topped with pulled pork,frenchfries,slaw and of course hotsauce.... There's hardly a week goes by that I don't smoke something. When I'm not in the mood to mess with the smoker "Sonny's" has a decent pulled pork take out, then it's over to "Bono's" for a quart of takeout BBQbeans, then home for a lil afternoon delite gourmond style! Now where did I put my truck keys????

                      mmmm a barcheburger, sounds like something I'd like to try. The closest really good Q is about an hour from my house so it's nice to be able to make my own.

                        I don't think the Glee club in question does all that much singing :-)

                          Man that looks good! Thanks for sharing! (Try dousing it in Mesquite Seasoning (powder) next time! Adds a real nice flavor!)...
