When I got up this morning there was a note in my chair asking me to please make pulled pork for dinner. It was already after 7 and the butt was 6 lbs., so I knew time was going to be a problem. I put the mustard and rub on it and threw it cold into a 300 degree oven and went about my normal morning routine. When I finally got it into the egg around 11:15, it was at 155 degrees. That should give us dinner at a reasonable hour. My question is, how much flavor do you suppose I've lost by roasting it in the oven first? I put apple and pecan chips in the lump, but am afraid the meat is past the point of absorbing the smoke. Is that right? I'm sure it will still be tasty, I'm just curious.
