Pulled Pork sandwich

Finally had some nice weather and knocked the dust off the smoker and cooked an 8lb pork butt for pulled pork sandwiches. I used a rub I have been working on that is excellent on chicken and smaller cuts of pork.

8 lb pork butt, rubbed and reporting for duty


Early start. 10 hours plus cook time ahead.


Water pan and thermometer (with potato stand) ready to go.


10 hours later, maybe more. Ready to rest before pulling. It was falling apart already.


All the sides are ready. Vinegar based bbq sauce, tomato based bbq sauce, cole slaw and pickles (store bought bread and butter).


Pulled pork. More like melted in my hands pork.


I marinade mine in vinegar based bbq sauce and eat it with tomato based bbq sauce on top with slaw and pickles. Thats just the way I do it. My wife just uses the tomato based sauce.


One of my favorite sandwiches.


Here are the base recipes for the sauces I make. I added orange and lemon zest and juice to the tomato based sauce just to try something different.

Vinegar based barbecue sauce recipe

1 Cup white vinegar
1 Cup cider vinegar
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 Teaspoons salt
1 Teaspoon black pepper

Mix together and let stand overnight. You can also put split fresh chilies in this recipe for really spicy sauce and you can add more sugar if you prefer it sweeter.

Tomato based barbecue sauce recipe

1 Cup ketchup
1 Cup chicken stock
1⁄4 Cup apple cider vinegar
1 Onion, chopped
3 Cloves crushed and minced garlic
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons molasses
2 Tablespoon dry ground mustard
1 Teaspoon cayenne or one fresh cayenne chili cut into ringlets with seeds

Mix together in a sauce pan and heat to simmer. Simmer 20 minutes and let cool.

Enjoy!
Bryan

Wow, makes me want a smoker! I have to do mine in a crockpot. It comes out okay but that looks fantastic!

My brother would make pulled pork in a crock pot and was excellent. He would use a smoke flavored sauce to finish it.

I use a Maverick Thermometer #ET-73. Its sturdy although I have burned up more than one set of probes by not paying attention. I payed about $45 for it a couple years back and I think now they are closer to $60. Well worth it to know what the internal and cooker temp is. really made a difference in my bbq foods.

I have also used it to check my oven as it seems to fluctuate in temp.

Thanks for all the kind words. I am excited to get on with some warm weather.

The ET-73 is very useful when BBQing. I do wish it was more robustly made though. Oh well, they aren't all that expensive. I did burn out a food prob and Maverick sent me one as it was only 2 months in.
