    Finally got a "Perfect" Butt

    I add the parenthesis just because who's to say what's perfect? (haha, many, i'm sure). But, it was a personal best and really a grand slam with the eating audience I had on hand. I went with Meathead's "easy" method of kosher salt dry brine for 12+ hours and Memphis Dust hit before cooking. i put it the barrel at 9am and didn't even look at it until around 1pm just to make sure it was still hanging. it hit 175-degrees at 1:45 and i put it on the grate and again didm't touch it. i finally pulled the lid at 6:05pm when it was sitting at 202-degrees for almost 40 minutes. at that point the bone was loose and it was ready to go (Note to self - calibrate thermos or invest in new ones!!). i pulled it and let it sit for 30 before trying it. a volunteer had already slid of and was deliciously received! oh my! it tasted good!


    out of the barrel and resting. oh my, a chunk fell off!

    Looks good, it seems like I have the same problem as you, a small piece always falls off.

    Looking good. Pork shoulder was the first cut of meat I ever smoked, and itā€™s still one of my favorites all these years later!

        I have thrown meat I ruined in the trash before anyone could taste it on more than one occasion. "Who wants pizza!"

            I perfected my own human butt years ago. it's the best kept secret in the LB.

          #11
          Looks great! I always have to sample lots of barky pieces as I pull the pork. If my wife is in the kitchen during the process, she is sneaking bits too as I shred the butt up!

            Beautiful job! That bark is killer.

              I use to hear that a lot. Now it's only when I smoke some pork.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
