LAN Party Butts
« on: March 11, 2010, 06:09:33 PM »
My son wants to have some friends over for an all night LAN gaming party.

What does he want to eat?

Pizza? NO

Burgers? NO

Pulled Pork? YES (That's MY boy!)

~35lbs of Pork butt. (Pork shoulder boston butt)

I did the molasses slather. Nice and messy. I didn't nuke it, it seemed to flow ok.

I couldn't find the BBQ brush, so I engaged in hand-to-hand combat.

Butts slathered:


I had some Jan's rub already made up, so that went on:


I covered the bin with plastic wrap and left it on the counter while I went to (yet another) broadway rehearsal.

An hour and a half later - everyone into the smoker:

I figure there might be some leftovers...

I'll get up in 4 hours and empty/refill the water bowl and rotate the racks top to bottom.

I think I used about 3/4 of a cup of molasses, and probably at least 1 to 1.5 cups of Jans' rub.

The rub kind of dissolved into the molasses and made a slurry.

Hmmm.... Add the rub the the molasses and maybe try to reduce it down to a paste ? I think the salt in the rub draws out some of the surface moisture of meat, making it watery.

Molasses/Rub paste?  Now that sounds like it has possibilities!  Sounds like very thick bark in the making to me.  Good idea FLBR.

I'm assumimg you're going full time in the Bradley on that big load?  MMMMMMmmmmmmmm.............
