Pork butt

Smoked a butt Wednesday on the big cooker, along with 4 slabs of ribs. The butt was rubbed with Ninja Dust and refrigerated over night then cooked over pecan for 14 hours at 230 degrees. This thang had a bark that would tree a coon.
Probably the best one I've done yet..Thanks![attachment=1:egjk7ook]DSC00310.JPG[/attachment:egjk7ook][attachment=1:egjk7ook]DSC00310.JPG[/attachment:egjk7ook]

Re: Pork butt

Butt looks great. I've never tried pecan, that's something that will have to come in the near future.

Re: Pork butt

Pecan wood has a mild not so sweet flavor. It's not readily available in most parts. Luckily, I have access to it where I live.
It's a middle of the road wood. It tends not to over smoke the meat.

Re: Pork butt

That butt looks great. I use Pecan and then a bit of Apple for more flavor. Keep up the great work.

Re: Pork butt

Fine looking butts. Pee can is supposed to be a kissing cousin slightly milder version of hickory. I have used quite a bit of it and it seems to share a trait with mesquite which is the flavor is dependent on the geography. I have three big ones out in my backyard and they provide a smell only slightly superior to card board boxes. On the other hand my old ex pal Burt from Jouston brought me a big load from down there and it smell absoloutely wonderful. Sorta like perfume. Now it has a reputation of not being a good producer of coals. Burns itself plumb up etc. Neva testesd the thesis but I would like an Oak base just for the heck of it. The best flavor from Pecan comes from the nutshells. It is also fairly easy to get over smoked with it in a real tight environment. The wood not the shells.

Re: Pork butt

Maybe it's a particular characteristic of each tree. I don't know if there is a difference on the wood depending on region. I've had some pecan before that had a strong odor resembling locust. Not sure what happened there. This particular load of pecan hasn't got that strong of an odor. I'm glad of that.
