What is the correct internal temperature for pulled pork?
« on: March 06, 2012, 02:50:33 pm »
Looks like the new Bradley will be here by Thursday so I want to smoke something this weeked! ;D I think I will start with pulled pork. What is the correct internal temperature for pulled pork when it is done and ready to pull from the smoker?

I usually take my pulled pork to an IT of 200º and then wrap it in Foil, Towel, and place it in a Cooler (FTC) for 3 to 4 hours before pulling  ;D  ;D

While you're waiting for your Bradley you might start looking around for different rub recipes to put on it 1-2 days before you smoke it.  There are many to choose from if you do a Google search.

I have seen the recipe for  "Jan's Rub" on the form and it seems to be well liked. Any others?

I may be different than most...I prefer to pull between 190-195.  FTC brings it up nicely and I like the texture more.  But then I've only been doing it a year on the Bradley.  And this is what I decided I like. :)

I made my first batch of the spicy version of Jan's Rub the other night for some ribs.  I liked it although I have not tried it on a pork shoulder.  I like to experiment and so I usually do a Google search for a new rub to try.  I keep a folder of the ones I like for future reference.

What is the minimum FTC? An Hour?

For me 3hrs up to 5hrs.  If you take it to 200-205 I don't see why just an hour wouldn't hurt.  But I'm sure the more experienced will be along to help.

I like Jan's rub.  It's a really good place to start.  You really can't go wrong with it.  It's easy to make and it's good on chicken, pork and beef.  You can branch out from there.
