I unwrap these butts and the bone broke away clean and the smell is awesome.





My whole house smells like a BBQ joint.

I hand pulled these butts and chopped the bark (the bark was not really
that hard due to the slathers that were applied). As I was mixing them up
by hand I kinda gave each turn a squeeze to help the juices mix up. I won't
have to wait two or three days for smoke taste in these butts, it is there.

The one on the right is the carolina/mustard (you can see the yellow tint to
it) and the left one is the Remoulade.

You know, I have never had pulled pork or beef brisket, but I know they look good. I will have to try one sometime. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
I like to walk threw life on the path of least resistance. But sometimes the path needs a good kick in the ass.

Q, Habs has a vaunted vinegar sauce for pulled pork that is pretty good (I add more black pepper to it) and it is on the recipe site.
Some of the forum drizzle back in some rub sauce and spice as they are mixing it up to add to the flavor. Boston Butts are inexpensive
and require the low slow smoke/cook like a brisket.

Hi cousin.  I can't believe you haven't had either PP or brisket.  Neither one is complicated, they just take some time.  As far as the Food Network is concerned, you'll never have anything as good as what you make yourself.  I've watched the shows for years and believe me, the people here are far more creative and dedicated to top-notch food than most of the BBQ joints on the shows.

I hope you can get into one or the other real soon.

CRG,

Did you age those butts?

And what flavor(s) of smoke?

Thanks,

Joe
