Intro: Smoked Pork Butt
That's right, its time for pork smoking
Step 1: Scoring the Meat
Winter is starting here, perfect time for some smoked foods.
Start with a pork butt, approx. 7 lbs.
Using a sharp knife cut a cross hatching into the fat side of the pork butt.
Step 2: Add Spice to Life
Make your own spice blend, cheaper than buying!
Here I have farmed sea salt from Ireland (amazing and can be found on amazon), garlic powder, cafe grind black pepper, dark chili powder and a smoked paprika.
Once you have your blend,....rub it into all sides of the pork.
I dont have picture as my hands were pretty dirty after this step!
Step 3: Smoke, Smoke, Rest
Once spiced, I place the butt in the smoker and I set it at 210F for approx. 6 hrs
I used apple wood chips which I soaked in water.
I likely used about 1 cup of hydrated apple chips.
After the 6 hrs. I removed the pork and instantly wrapped in tin foil and let it rest.
Step 4: Dishes
After an hour of resting the pork is ready,......
With a smoking like this you are left with options, I used some of the pork for dinner and most of it I put back into a crock pot with apple vinegar. Cook on low while at work then go home and shed it up for pulled pork bbq!
Step 5: Crockpot Update
this is after another 10 hrs in a low crockpot!
