9# pork butt today

Post by towtruck » October 19th, 2019, 9:44 am

I have a bone in pork shoulder that has been rubbed down since yesterday and it's all prepped and ready to hit the smoker once it reaches temp. I started the smoker at 7 am and will be smoking this one at 250* or as close to that as I can get. I want it to go until 195-200* internal temp and hope to get a good bark and a bone that slips right out.....time will tell.
Using charcoal and applewood on this one......pics to follow.....

Just under 6 hours on the smoker so far and the internals are 161*....I feel a stall coming on. I have been keeping the pit right around 245-255* except for the last 40 min or so...I let it dip to 235 while I took a soak in the hot tub...I did not want to have to get out and adjust the temps during my nap...
=))

edit.....it's been 6.5 hours and it's at 170* now.....still waiting for the stall...it may not happen...I'm good with that.

edit II.....were at 179 and still climbing....no stall yet.

Coming up on hour 9 and this is where we are at....

I got it all pulled and the bone came out clean except on one end where there was some cartilage still attached. Smoke ring was deep and the bark is tasty. Wife tossed together some pulled pork tacos and they were super tasty!!!

Nice indeed. :kewl:

So far this roast has made sammich's, Burrito's, tacos, and Enchilada;s. I still have two bags of meat frozen waiting for the next meal plan! I'm going to smoke a few other cuts the next time to better use the space in the smoker and cook more food for the fuel burned. Then I can freeze it and dig it out when needed. I might have to do a butt and a brisket next time. I'll be checking out the sale bin at the butcher next trip.
