Cold Cold Comp Butt Practice

I decided go ahead and start doing some comp testing on BBQ Centrals comp pork. I picked a great day, it's 12* and I also realized I'm getting old. I head out the deck to light the coals in my normal shorts and t-shirt. After about 5 minutes I realize, IT'S COLD!!! Years ago it wouldn't have bothered me, guess that's what age does to you! It was a balmy 40* yesterday and I had planned on doing these overnight. Well I made the injection and went to the garage to get the butts from the fridge and to my surprise, they're not there! I yell inside to my wife, where are the butts and she replies, I put them in the freezer yesterday! Thank God I was in the garage where the cold beer is because I just about lost my mind!!!! Why? Why? Why? is all I could bring myself to say. So that's why I'm doing it in the freezing cold this morning.

So back to the butts. One is injected with a highly modified version of the injection recipe on the WR Site and the other is injected with a Top Szecret concoction that Finney created. Both are rubbed with WRO. They were approximately 7lbs each before injecting and are now easily 8.5lbs after injecting. Wood of choice is my favorite, Hickory!

Looking good there Larry

Better watch how much stuff you put on top of the stove.
You might break something

Larry, go back to the garage and have a few more beers. That should help getting your blood to flow again! Nice start to your cook, keep us posted.

Craig the one HERE is the one I'm using on one of the butts. If you like your pork a little on the sweet side this will work great. You can add more or less Wolfe Rub to your liking along with other ingredients to tweak it to your liking.

I've done alot of butts.....................................I've never had the bark look like as dry and as burnt marshmallows like these. But......................................this ended up being a very good thing. Both injections worked perfect and I'm very happy with the flavor from both!!! Can't wait for the team to give them a try and hear their results!
