Competition Pork Butt

I am part of a BBQ team for a contest in September. My assignment on the team is to cook the pork butt for the contest. I have cooked many pork butts for family and friends. My question is what do you guys do differently to your pork butts when you are cooking for a contest. Any tips or recipes you are willing to share?

Sometimes, depending on who the judges are, I'll oversmoke slightly just
to make sure they can taste and distinguish the smoke. I also inject.
I truly believe that you rub sauce and choice of smoke woods need to
all work together.

yeah I did the Lilly in the spring. Did my own in the fall, but it had vinegar
and it may have made the meat too mushy.

I inject in comps as well. My scores got better when I did. I use the Lilly's injection sauce as well.

I tried to make a girl one time. It's harder to keep the parts connected than you would think. 8-[

I would incorporate the injection with the rub you are using for your pork....

You're thinking this way to hard.

The injection is super simple. Look at the ingredients. Anything you put together will go with that mix. I like to go with the KISS methods. In fact as a rule I use Sam's Garlic Pepper Blend on most of my larger pork cuts.


Good Q!

Jack

The KISS method works for most people. I'm a rocket scientist you know. Why do something simple when you can do it the hard way?[/quote:3lpfhsas]

No kidding, cliff h. is proof of that......

It is a nice needle. I really like the fact that it is small enough to break down and put into my tool box. However, if anybody wants to contribute to the general fund...this is the bad boy I want.

All I gotta do is talk Mary into it.

Good Q!
