I've been reading his weekly newspaper article in my Sunday paper for some time now ... I enjoy it, never seen him on TV though ...
If you cook it longer at the temp he was able to cook it in two hours, well yeah, cooking it longer is gonna dry it out. I think I'm gonna try his sauce and rub recipes, or at least give them some consideration.
He has said in his articles, how did he put it, 'Here is the Home version of this great recipe I do' something like that. Dummed down for the average Joe or to protect his secrets.
This pork butt sounds in the same vein. Lets face it folks, how many people would actually try it if it says up front ... 'This will take at least 14 hours, more like 20, but no promises, it's done when it's done'. From that way of thinking it's ok, but he could call it 'the quick, easy recipe'.
thanks for the post Suzan
