Naked Pulled Pork

I haven't made pulled pork in a long time and wanted to try something a little different and more traditional. So while the weather was cooperatiing, I smoked a butt yesterday. I didn't add any seasoning, flavor came straight from the charcoal and cherry wood. Wanted hickory, but I did not have any.

Put the pork on straight out of the fridge.


Then I lit the smoker, I know it's opposite of most folks, but it's how I roll and it works for me.


I wanted the pork done faster than normal and with no sugar or rub, I let the temps go. For a bit, temps were in the 335*-350* range without worrying about the sugar burning. This was an 8lb butt and it took right at 10hrs total.


After a 30 minute rest, it's time to pull and eat!


Very tender, very moist.



And the bone is clean!


I have made a lot of BBQ, a lot of different ways. THIS reminded me more of Eastern NC BBQ I grew up eating in NC than any I've made before. Probably, some of the best I've ever made.

My sandwich with homemade slaw, homemade potato salad and homemade broccoli salad.


Had to add plenty of Texas Pete and a glass of Crown Royal.

Re: Naked Pulled Pork

That all looks great. I may have to try & see how it comes out with hickory & oak.

Re: Naked Pulled Pork

Looks like a great old school way to go. But dude, you need to get yourself a Guru to controll those temps!

I had a Digi Q used it 5 times and got rid of it. WSM works fine, I actually wanted the temps higher on this cook. When the sun goes down it's too daggone cold for me!!

Re: Naked Pulled Pork

Looks great Larry. Like the idea of a naked butt as long as it's of the pork variety.

Re: Naked Pulled Pork

Looks good. I let an old boy trick me into cooking an un seasoned brisket one time. Dang it tasted bad. Glad to hear porkers dont treat a person so shabby. Now I was with you till I seen that Texas Pete. That stuff is nasty and made in Ohiya or Cinncinatti or some other odd place like that. When I got a good tip on Sirriachi that is all I buy anymore. I have a bottle of Franks which aint been touched in five years.
