Smoked Pulled Pork

Been smoking some meats lately and I thought I would post pics and stuff here.

Pork Butt:

I used Alton Brown’s recipe as a guide. This meant soaking it a brine for about 10 hours.

I used a store bought rub.  I coated it in mustard first and then applied a generous amount of rub to the entire butt. While it was coming up to ambient temp I got the smoker heated and a good head of smoke going.

I ended up fighting with the temp all night and eventually ran out of charcoal. I also used about 7 pounds of apple wood chunks. At this point the butt was not done and I threw it in the oven to bake at 225 while I went and took a nap.

Nice bark!

And then all that was left was the pulling and the eating! So delicious.
