Thanks everyone for the great advice on my recent cook of pulled pork. Everybody loved it so much that I get to cook again.
Is it neccessary and if so, why do you put mustard on the butt?
At 69 cents a lb., I'm stocking up for future cooks but this is going fishing with me at Beaver for stripers.[p]CWM

    Car Wash Mike,[p]You don't have to add any, but some say it adds a little more crust (bark) on the outside. Some claim it helps tenderize a little, but that seems like a stretch on a pork butt. Bottom line, it don't hurt nothing. I prefer to put the rub on the meat and omit the mustard or rub on 1st and mustard last. I have put mustard on my endangered species list and leave it for my hot dogs.[p]Tim

    Tim M,Thanks Tim. I wasn't going to use it, just wanted to make sure my butt, egg, or anything else didn't break if I didn't use it.[p]CWM
