Smoked Injected Pork Butt
« on: January 11, 2010, 03:22:17 PM »
I was running out of pulled pork and did up another butt. Here's the stars of the show.


Injected and ready for the slathering.


All slathered and waiting for his dance partner the Brisket. (That will be another post)


After 4 hr Pecan and a day in the smoker set at 220 F.


The bone pulled right out with NO resistance.


Pulled and ready for a sammie.


The sammie with some yellow sauce on top and some BBQ beans.


Mmmmmmmmmm Gooood.

OU That looks like some fine swine!!  What do u inject with, straight bbq sauce? 
As i am still rather new, if I want a pork but is that what I ask the butcher for?  It's actually part of the shoulder right?

There are two ends of the pork shoulder.

The Butt (boston) end and the shank end (picnic shoulder)

The butt end lends itself to pulling while the shank end is better for slicing.

This one I injected with Carolina Treet, its more of a cooking sauce than a bbq sauce but you can use anything you want just try to stay away from sauce's that have allot of sugar and tomato based sauces as they tend to burn if you dont keep an eye on them. You can use those sauces if you put them on towards the very end of the cook, that way they dont burn.

Pork butt is the upper half of the shoulder and is some times called the Boston butt.

That is one good looking piece of meat.  I hope the butt I am doing this weekend turns out that good. :)

The recipe site has "the renowned Mr. Brown rub"  - I like it. It is a "peppery" rub.

Apply (up to) four hours of smoke @200-225F - I like Hickory on Pork

Empty/refill the water bowl after the smoke is done.

Continue to cook @200-225F until an IT of 190-200F - This will take around 12-16 hours.

FTC for at least one hour.

Pull - EAT.

For sauce I would suggest the Vaunted vinegar sauce from the recipe site.
