First Pulled Pork

Yesterday at 11:00 AM I began my first Pulled Pork cook. I got the Egg stabilized at 200 % and she stayed there until 10:00 PM. At that time the pork temperature was 164 %. I open the bottom vent, but nothing happened. I open the Egg, removed the meat, and stirred the lung, put the meat back on and the temp rose to 285 %. At 4:00 AM the Nu-Temp went off to tell me the meat was at 200 %. Took it off, warped it in foil, waited two hours and pulled the pork. Man, it this stuff GREAT. Now I understand why everyone raves about it. [p]This will not be my last PP, but I will not start the cook in the morning again. From now on I will begin to cook at night, so I can get some sleep. Wife made me campout on the couch because I kept getting up to check on the cook. But all was well when she tasted the final product.[p]Thank you so much for all of your advice. This forum is great source of information for those of us new to Egging!

    Butch M,[p]Yah, that can be some gooood stuff! Congradulations on your first one! It freezes great too! I usually will do a 7-9 pounder and freeze leftovers in single serving sizes. About 1 minute in the microwave and I have lunch![p]Smokey[p]

    Butch M,
    So did you eat a pork sandwich at 6:00 am?
    It is hard to resist that stuff at any time.

  • Butch M,
    I did almost the idnetical cook as you yesterday, almost to the numbers. Only.. I started mine at 11 p.m. Thursday night. 200° all night long. Opened lid for the first time at 10.A.M. Put a polder in and it was 163° in smaller one (6 1/2 pounds). I had two on.. I kicked the fire to 275° and at 4 took off the smaller one at 203° internal. Pretty close huh?
    Oh Yeah though, Mine weren't on my egg. they were on the WSM, but still...[p]
