Pork Butt Question - Where's My Bark!?
This morning I put a 6.5 lb pork butt on my Egg and have left it going for about 8 hours now. This is only my second attempt at a pork butt. The first one I did turned out fantastic, but when I opened the egg to temp this one I was surprised by what I saw! The bark on my last butt was dark and crusty, but this one didn't seem to bark up much at all. I cooked it in the roasting pan the whole time (ordering my indirect setup from CGS next week, I hope.) Is the pan the reason it didn't bark up .. or is this even a problem? Having some family over for dinner tonight, and hoping I haven't screwed up dinner! The pork is at 182 internal now, so I still have a little time to work. Thanks for any input!
