    That Gorgeous Pork Sandwich on the Opening Page of the Free Side

    I have been salivating heavily since that beautiful pork sandwich picture was posted on the free side! Now I have cooked many a pork butt, but never one that looks this pretty! I have cooked butts into the low 190's F for slicing and into the low 200's for pulling. Mine always have turned much darker (I assume due to temps or perhaps rubs ??). I see that this butt was cooked for chopping. To my recollection I have never chopped a butt but think I want to give it a try next time.

    Could someone in the know please tell me how to achieve this sandwich's looks as well as cooking Technique, cooking to what internal temp, temp used to cook the butt, etc.

    Thanks folks, I am all ears and getting more and more hungry with anticipation.

    That sandwich does look really good. I wonder if the lightness of the pork is a function of the lighting in the shot. But, it does look chopped/sliced.

    I did some tacos al pastor with pork butt and took it off between 175 and 180 and that is roughly the effect I got.

      I agree it has the effect of causing the mouth juices to flow.

      I roll my smoker(s) long bout 275°~300° F...

      My best guess is that the pork pictured was cooked much lower, an slower, therefore: much less dark / bark than th meteorites that are my deliberately desired end results.

        Looks a lot like the sandwich pictured here, pork looks the same as does the bun.

          Does indeed look like the other pic. I will study this one for sure. But I do not plan to cook the butt in a crockpot. The wood smoke flavor is why I smoke them to start with and I cannot stand the taste of liquid smoke.
