Smoked two Boston Butts on the Big Green Egg today. Took 8 hours over a low fire to bring them up to temperature.



After pulling:



Tomorrow night's dinner: pulled pork sandwiches! Yum!

I always wondered that, too, but your question spurred me into action. So I googled "pulled pork" and of course the first link was the Wikipedia article about "pulled pork". And sure enough, it explained what "pulling" meant.

But that isn't meaningless or drivel so I won't mention it any more. Not nearly as much fun as having a discussion.

Yes I do. But we usually only have a dessert when we have company over for dinner. "Chcoclate Lava Muffins" are a favorite.

See the second picture. After the pork is cooked, it's so tender that the meat can be pulled apart with a pair of forks. The meat is then served on sandwiches with BBQ sauce.

Except in this case, the "butt" is the shoulder.

They're good! I usually serve them with raspberries and some espresso whipped cream.

Did you probe the temperature inside the meat or just estimate the time?

What temp was the grill at? Like 225?

Any smoke? Mesquite, hickory and apple seem to be the big three with cherry a close fourth. I helped a buddy cut down a pear tree a few years ago and the cut wood smelled nice. I should have kept some to try. I also wonder if there's enough sugar in sugar maple to make the smoke sweet, thus imparting some sweetness to the smoked meat. Probably not.

Estimating time is the surest way to failure. It's all about the internal temperature!

I use:

I think it averaged about 230ºF.

Pecan.
