Thanks everyone for putting up with all my questions and for all the advice. Mere moments ago I finished pulling some of the best tasting pork I have ever eaten in my life, definetly the best I have ever cooked. I woulda liked a little more smokey flavor, but man is it good. That rub I posted tasted great too. My aunt dropped by while I was pulling it and I thought I was going to have to cut her fingers off 'cause she was eating it about as fast as I could pull it.[p]All in all, my 7.66 pounder took right at 18 hours (shorter time due to 420* spike at about the 11th hour). Had it not been for that one little problem (which was my own fault), this would have been near effortless. Anyone hesitating about doing a butt should just go for it. Look at me, even if you don't do it perfect, the results are still outstanding.[p]Mikey
Definetly going to do this again!
