14 Pound smoked pork butt turned out fantastic.
« on: April 21, 2009, 06:02:51 am »
Made a 14 pound pork butt for easter. It fed 10 people and still had half left that lasted the rest of the week. So tasty and easy to make!

Used CYM (cheap yellow mustard) and then a rub.

My rub recipe.

1/8 cup black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup raw natural sugar
1 teaspoon Cheyenne pepper
1 tablespoon mustard powder
2 tablespoon garlic powder
2 tablespoon onion powder


Put it into the smoker and gave it 4 hours of hickory smoke. When done smoking, changed the water in the dish and that's all I did. Then left it in the smoker over night (no mop or anything else was done to it), then finished it in the oven, wrapped in heavy foil with a splash of apple juice at 220 degrees fahrenheit, until internal temp was 190 degrees fahrenheit. Then did the FTC (foil, towel, cooler) for about 3 hours.

It was so tender and tasty and a big hit. Served it with assorted buns, coleslaw, my home made secret sauce, and many other dishes.

Didn't take too many pics this time because I was too busy serving food.

14 pound whole pork butt. CYM and rubbed with rub.


Into the smoker for four hours of hickory smoke, then left over night in smoker to cook.


Half of it left after dinner. We ate this over the week. It was very delicious!


Made 2 lemon cheesecakes with strawberry sauce for desert.

Looks great.  Congradulations on the great smoke.

That looks fantastic! The places I shop rarely have a butt over 7 pounds.

Everything looks good. That looks like a whole shoulder; butt and picnic.

I have two 9 pound B Butts in now.  I mixed the rub ingredients in with 2 cups mustard. Painted it on. I will start a new thread with pictures after it's done.

Made another 15 pound pork shoulder pulled pork. It turned out fantastic!

In the wrapper.


Cleaned of skin and excess fat.


Rubbed with CYM and my rub mix.


Into the smoker for 4 hours of hickory, then left over night to slowly roast in the smoker so total of 16 hours in the smoker, came out at internal temp of 151 F.


Out of the smoker. Put it into a baking tray, splash or apple juice, covered with tin foil and roasted at 225 F for 3 hours. Reached internal temp of 185 F.


Then it was put into the cooler wrapped in a towel but left in the baking dish and was transported to a birthday party. This is what is left of it. So delicious served on soft onion and cheese buns with sauces, coleslaw, other salads and fixins.

Ditto.  I think I'd call that a shoulder.  However ours around here would have more of the shank end on it.  I like the looks of that cut.  Pretty even in size and thickness.  Don't matter as that thing looks GOOD and TASTY!  even the leftovers!

Why not leave it on the smoker with no smoke and pump up the heat to 250° to finish it?

Geo,

That looks so good, I am going to try it this weekend.  I have only tried Brisket and Ribs.  How do you apply the rub/mustard combo and do you let it sit overnight.
