I started by trimming all the fat off the outside of the butts. I then injected them with Chris Lilly’s pork injection. Next step was to cover them with a generous amount of Slab’s pork rub. They went into the fridge overnight for about 6 hours.
About 2:30am Saturday morning, I fired up the cooker and got my butts ready for the fire.
Just out of the fridge.
Ready to go on the cooker.
I got them loaded about 3:00am and set the temp to 150 degrees for the first 2 hours which will give me some extra smoke during this first period.
Raised the temp to 275 and cooked and smoked the butts until the color and bark looked right (about 6 hrs) and took them off the cooker for the foil wrap.
Looked good enough to eat now but still not done.
Each butt was wrapped in foil with a half a bottle of the Stubb’s Pork Marinade and then back into the cooker.
I mixed up a light blend of my catering sauce and added it to the meat. I then added some finely ground rub to the meat and mixed it all up and it was ready to be bagged.
Gonna be some happy folks at the local Ford dealership come Monday about noon.
