Cilantro Lime pork butts rubbed up and waiting for the egg.


  • two pork butts about 7 lbs each
    2 fresh limes

    chili powder
    2 small bunches fresh cilantro

    all put in hand blender chopper then rubbed on pork shoulders

    add in the egg magic, (which is happening right now) dome temp 225-250 going on 14hours

    then add a mixture of roughly the same, to taste after it is pulled.

    Looks scrumptious! I am a big fan of pork butt, may have to give this a try.

  • Sorry for all those that asked. Didn't get any finish pics. Had to run home at lunch break to pull them off the egg and didn't have time to get pics.

    They turned out wonderful just like they always do on the egg. Pulled at 195 and coolered for about 4 hours. Then pulled and served.
