    Another great pulled pork smoke - Granddaunghter seal of approval

    Our trip to visit kids and grandkids in New Orleans was cancelled. Darn. But decided to smoke a pork shoulder using a rub from my favorite Q spot in NOLA -
    The Joint
    . Smoked for 16 hours and it was great. Dropped some warm extras off to our local son and grandkids and our granddaughter had to take a break from playing to eat some of grandpa's pulled pork. My wife even said it was great air freshener for the house. Anybody sell BBQ air freshener or is this a business idea I should explore?

                    Young lady with a gallon bag of pulled pork. Beautiful!!! By the way, I have been to The Joint, I think I still have some of that same rub somewhere around here. Going to have to look for it.

                      I think the Joint is only one of two NOLA restaurants I have been to more than once. There are so many good choices, but I really like their Q.

                            FredS Pork looks almost as good as the granddaughter. We drove over last Sunday to our son's house. He lives about an hour away, and manages a Farm/Fleet type store. Wife had made masks for everyone in the store. Our 3 year old grandson could not understand why grampa and grandma were not getting out of the car.

                            But, I'm also glad to see your butt, and the bark, and hear the compliments from others. I was doubting my sanity a bit today. Last night a guy posted his pulled pork on a Facebook page for Grillas and it looked about like yours. I thought it looked good, and evidently he did when he posted it, he wasn't asking what he did wrong, although after a bunch of comments about how it was "burned" and suggestions about how to keep that from happening again he gave a couple of reasons why it looked like that. The pictures of what others were posting of the color they were looking for looked like what is showing through where the bark has split on yours. I commented that I guess those looked OK, if you didn't like bark, and while I wasn't flamed, I was informed I was definitely wrong. As I said there, when I pull my pork I've gotta fight of family trying to grab that "burnt" bark while I'm pulling.

                            Gotta stick closer to home. You guys here are my people!

                            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                            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.

                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                            Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
