Last minute call

Okay, so Thursday I'm coming home from work, thinking nothing but about Fridays surgery. I get a call from the knuckleheads from the firehouse asking if I can cook some pulled pork for superbowl. Doh, stupid me says yes. So off I go this morning to Costco to pick up butts. I've always cooked shoulders before and these things look like a total different animal. They were boneless so after preping, I rubbed the inside where they had been de-boned and tied them up. Mustard slather and "Renowned Mr. Brown" was rubbed all over. Gonna throw them on around 4:30 - 5:00, hopefully I can have them pulled and in pans by 4:00 tomorrow. I'm going to a different party!

Nick that is exactly why I don't buy butts from Costco! All they sell at least around here is boneless butts!! They'll cook about the same, you'll be fine.

I hope your weather was better than the steady wind/rain downpour we had! Today is better : 40 mph gusts with heavy snow! Glad I cooked this stuff Friday!

No Woodweather, we've been real lucky this winter. Rained all last night but I'm undercover where I cook. Zero on the wind! Bruce, we had an above ground pool where that putting green is and when the kids out grew the pool, i told my wife I couldn't cut all the extra lawn when the pool came down so I put in a putting green. BTW, I just took the butts off the smoker and have them resting in a cooler.

Well, all pulled, cleaned up and ready to party.

Starting to pull



This loads for the boys at the firehouse


Total from 6 butts. (Yeah some for me and my buddy)


This was the first time I did butts, usually I do shoulders. These things seem meatier than shoulders and have more outside surface area which = more bark. They were a little bit more work up front with having to tie them together after the butcher de-boned them but there was less fat to cull out of the finished product. This was also my first cook with the new Kingsford, 90% of the bag was used and it didn't last 15 hours. I usually get 20 hours out of a burn with no problems, but this time I had to re-load after 9 hours to make sure I would make it through the night.

Pork in the foodsaver bags looked great. Do those guys like the Mr Browns rub? I get mixed reviews with it because many people think it's too spicy. Of course I'm serving with a vinegar pepper sauce. That doesn't tone the heat down any.

At the firehouse I put my own sauce on it which is sweet. That kills the heat quite a bit or rather gives the nice sweet heat. The foodsavered bags have nothing in them. I gave 1/2 to my buddy and 1/2 for me. He like a vinegar sauce and his wife likes sweet, so I gave them a little of each sauce that they can add as they like. My family likes the sweet and I enjoy Rev. Marv. or my own vinegar sauce.

We gotta be talking about different pictures 'cause those bags sure look like they have meat in them.
