Title: 22 lbs of Pork Butt
Post by: zueth on June 17, 2011, 09:09:02 AM
Last night I started smoking three pork butts about 7 1/2 lbs each.  I did a different rub on each and let them sit in the rub for about 36 hours. Here is the lineup.

They are bricks, they help to keep the heat up when I open the door.

Are you planning in finishing them up in the Bradley or are you going to transfer them to a slow oven?  I'd be interested to know what your total time was.

All Pork Butt's are done pulled and in the refrigerator.  I cooked all Butts to a IT of 195 and FTC for 3-4 hours.  The first butt was done after 24 hours and was the Bad Bryon's Butt Rub.  I forgot to get a picture of it after FTC, but here it is after being pulled.

The next butt was done at 25 1/2 hours and was the Gun Powder Butt.  Here it is after FTC.

Had to take a sample of all three and I think there will be some satisfied people at the party today :)
I don't have a opinion of what rub I like the best yet, but will after some more sampling.  I didn't really notice a difference in the GP butt with injection, not sure the injection really did anything.
