Pork Cushion Pulled Pork

I know I've been absent the last couple of months but I've been preoccupied with several things. Good news though......... I have something smoking in the Keg!



I brined four hunks of pork cushion meat all totaled about 12.5 lbs overnight. Two in a salty brine and two in a sweet brine. Then I decided to use some of the rubs I got at Kegtoberfest 2014.





Then on the Keg they went with alder and apple wood for smoke.



I'll update later but these are smelling fantastic already!

3:00pm update and they're looking great and smelling even better!
The three smaller chunks are at 172 degrees IT and the larger one is 169* after about six hours on the Keg.

Annnnnd...... the pork is done!
Just took it off the Keg looks great smells fantastic and taste is outstanding!!!!



Each skewer is labeled with the rub I used on it and which brine was used also. I'll pull it when it cools a bit and package separately. I have a feeling this will NOT last very long at all. Lol....

Only tried it as I was pulling it. Very good! Much leaner.
