As an added bonus, the day before Labor Day is National Bacon Day and we don’t know about you, but we like putting bacon on anything and everything, so we’ll definitely be celebrating that.

Tonight's Pork Butts On...Anyone else?

My wife hinted on the fact that we are ‘low’ on vacuum packs of pulled pork in the freezer, so I was given the task of doing a few Butts. Oh yeah….Twist my arm there! I've won them over on pulled pork.

Anyone else doing any overnighters???

2 Pork Butts (approx. 7.5# each)
Fab 'Free' mixed with Apple Juice and overnight to thicken before injection.

Injected with the Fab Free, attempted to massage the butts (ha!) every 2 hours. 15 hours in fridge after injection.

Slathered in yellow mustard; then rubbed with my latest homemade rub, which I really like on the ‘dry’ taste test.

On the Egg....at 250. This is the first time I’m putting liquid in the drip tray under the butts. Not sure if there is a difference from reading a bit.

One the Egg at 11:00pm….again, without a Guru. I’ve had dome temp stable now for 1.5 hrs., so I should be fine through the morning. I'll be up for a while yet though. Fingers crossed!

These Butts from Sam's had a 'different' shape to them??? More 'square' than all the others I've bought. Any thoughts?

Injected in the cryovac package.
