Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Turbo Butt (lots of pix)

My wife's two favorite meals are Ribeye Steaks and Pulled Pork.  I made her the Steak Diane last night, and today I made her Pulled Pork.  :)  It's a win-win for me because I get Brownie Points AND I get to eat steak and pulled pork!  ;)  Trimmed and Smoked this 8 lb Turbo Butt up with Apple and Hickory at around 325 deg f.

Spritzed the Butt down a few times with a mixture of Apple Cider Vinegar and Canola Oil.  Here are some progress shots when spritzed them down:

Once I achieved the bark I was looking for, I foiled it up to finish.

I let it rest foiled in a cooler, covered with a towel, for about an hour before pulling it.  It melted like butter!  :)

Bone slid right out...

The bark tasted great, and the pulled pork was very moist with just the right amount of smoke.

Topped our sandwiches with Shealy's Mustard-Based Sauce.  A local favorite.  :)

    Damn Dyal. Eating like a king lately. Can't wait to see what you do with the rest of the pulled pork. Thought about that? I need to make a trip over to Shealys. That place is hard to beat.

    Gotta dip the Pulled Pork Egg Rolls in Mustard-Based BBQ Sauce....  you dip Asiany Egg Rolls in Asian Hot Mustard, so it just makes sense!  :)

    And BBQ Pizza with Pulled Pork, Tomato-Based BBQ Sauce, Cheddar Cheese, Sauteed Onions and Bacon is always deeeelicious!  :D

    We need to get together and egg in SC.  I know you guys have talked about it before.  Maybe for a Clemson Carolina 'x'ball game.  That would be the shiz

    Thx again fellas... r270ba, I think that's a great idea. I just looked and there are Clemson/Carolina baseball games March 1st -3rd.

    http://www.gamecocksonline.com/sports/m-basebl/sched/scar-m-basebl-sched.html

    1st game is on a Friday in Clemson. 2nd game is in Greenville on Saturday. And Sunday's game (March 3rd) is on Sunday in Columbia. I probably can't do the Friday game since that is a work day, but Saturday or Sunday would probably work. Maybe we could do some tailgating or something?

    My daughter is starting at South Carolina next year we would love to crash the tailgate in Columbia next football season. It may be time to get a mini.

    An Elementry question for some of you guys, but at what temp do you pull your butt? Ok that sounded weird but you know what I mean. :))

    It really depends on how sweaty I'm getting. Swamp-butt sucks.

    Now, for pork, I pull between 195-205, whenever the meat is starting to fall apart and the thermapen is moving through it like butter.

    Most excellent looking plate(s)! Smoke a butt and you eat well for days. I've been thinking about pulled pork pizza too - gotta do it. That mustard based sauce sounds really good.

    Suspicious minds were wondering what you did to get yourself so deeply in the dog-house, but I'll buy your story. It certainly never hurts to keep your wife happy!

    I made a late supper on the Egg last night, so I didn't eat this AM. I am regretting that decision now. You're killing me with all of those pictures of mustardy goodness. I've not tried a turbo butt yet, but I think you've persuaded me I need to do it soon. And that BBQ pizza...so much to do, so little time.

    Looking good, Dial Soap. You really must have been missing your Egg during your trip out west to see the big hole in the ground to come back and do two back to back cooks like that. How do you cook the Egg rolls? Just fry them up in some oil?

    Thx guys! The Egg Rolls are really simple. You can find the egg roll wraps in the produce section. You just lay one out and put some slaw and pulled pork on top. Then just wrap and seal shut with a drop or two of water. Then fry them on your stovetop in canola oil at about 350 deg f. I like a simple slaw of EVOO and Seasoned Rice Wine Vinegar for the Egg Rolls.

    I pull my butts at about 195*-200* every single time. I then wrap, generally in foil, but lately I've been wrapping first layer uncoated butcher paper and then foil and then in towels and into the warm cooler for a couple of hours. Always a crowd pleaser, even if it's just a crowd of one!

    I was gonna bring up legs, but that was the other board  ;) . I never figured out what my SO saw in me either. And to be honest I'm making something for my wife tonight so I'm guilty too.

    That looks great, especially the bark.  About what temp were you at when you foiled after achieving the bark you were going for?  I am new and have not got my bark looking that good.
  • Dyal_SCDyal_SC Posts: 1,760
    Thx, y'all.

    Jim, can't wait to see what you have in store for tonight's dinner! :)

    Bente, I've been using an apple cider vinegar/canola oil spritz for years. It is my go to "mop", although I spritz and seldom use a mop. I don't like mopping off the rub, so I use a squirt bottle instead. I like the flavor that the apple cider vinegar gives, and I always get a better bark. I don't like a dried out bark, so I personally find that the added fat from the oil helps resolve that issue..it makes sense in my half brain anyways, and I get good results doing it that way. ;). And yep, those are clear Christmas Lights all around my grill gazebo. :) Helps out at night time.

    Bezdecr, I think it was around 175 deg f this time around. I pay more attention to the bark than the internal temp before foiling. Sometimes I have a nice bark at 165, but sometimes it takes a little longer with the turbo method.

    Dude; Saweet! I think Turbo Butt just moved to the top of my Super Bowl menu! Thanks. So to clarify Turbo Butt technique, correct me if I'm wrong here (cause I've never Turbo'd before and I wanna get it right). So it's still plate setter indirect, but 325* instead of 250*, spritzing along the way, and after the stall you foil, around 165* to 175*, after the bark hardens, until all the way done, around 195*. FTC as always. Do I have all the steps?

    Has anyone experienced a different texture with a turbo butt? I have tried them before on the WSM (I know, I know), but wasn't happy with the taste. It tasted almost greasy when doing turbo. I'm assuming the far superior BGE doesn't have that issue?
