My First Butt(s) - Going for Turbo
We are having a potluck luncheon at work on Tuesday so I decided to try some pulled pork to bring in. Had planned on cooking them on tomorrow, but thunderstorms are expected so thought I'd get them done today. Time won't allow a regular low and slow and with on and off showers expected, I'm going to try the Turbo Texas Crutch Method that Hi54Putty did here. http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1137430/turbo-butt-success-and-pic
Basically 350 dome until the stall hits around 160, wrap in heavy duty aluminum foil (HDAF) and pull around 200F internal. Have twp butts for a total of 14.5 lbs from Costco. Trimmed a lot of the fat off, and on one slathered regular old mustard followed by Dizzy Pig Dust and the other just straight Dizzy Pig Dust. Figured might as well run the experiment since I have two.
The plan is to pull them tonight once they are done and store in ziplock baggies. The bulk will be reheated in a crockpot on Tuesday with some added coke a cola for the PotLuck.
Should I freeze or just refrigerate since the potluck is going to be three days away?
