    Pork butt on sweet potatoes

    Cooked a pork butt yesterday. Was trying to think of something new to do with it and this is what I came up with. It took a bit of time, but turned out to be worth it.
    Charcoal prep... which I learned here (thanks guys):

    Then pork prep. I dry-brined per Dr. Blonder's and Meatheads recommended 1/2 tsp per lb. I only had 16hrs to brine, but it still helped quite a bit. Then coated with thin coat of olive oil, and my own dry rub (can't forget lubrication solution for the cook). I also used a water pan to keep the humidity high in the UDS.:

    While the butt was smoking at 250 (I usually do 225, but was short on time), I mixed up a Carolina Red style sauce:

    Here's the shredded pork (can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the butt before shredding... dummy):

    And the final plate with a side of black beans. just put a couple of sweet potato slabs down, top with pork and sauce. some caramelized onions, red cabbage (a little more sauce) and a dollop of chutney. This was my wife's plate and she has a sweet tooth, so she goes heavy on the chutney. I think that overpowers the meat flavor, but everyone has their own tastes:

    Anyway... hope you all enjoy. This is my first post, so constructive criticism would be appreciated!

    No criticism here (other than a couple sideways pics but it happens). That looks amazing! Never thought of that chutney with pork but it makes sense.

        Only problem I have is that knife not in my kitchen! Looks great, I was thinking of making a sweet potato hash just last night.

          I think you have a fundamental problem here.

          What will you ever do for an encore???

          Beautiful!! As usual, I am envious! GREAT first post. I am really looking forward to the encore!

            That looks delicious, love black beans and yams, great combo that I'm sure is only better with smoked pork.
