Pork butt and new slaw recipe.

Sunday's cook was a Boston butt. Been awhile for pulled pork but was really excited. Injected with a brine of apple juice, pineapple, Worcestershire, soy, Tabasco. Then 2 different rubs indirect till reached 200 internal. Juiciest and best butt I have done. Cole slaw was a ranch based slaw with blue cheese and bacon.

    Crazy question, but I am new to the BGE world.  Do you let the butt rest after you inject it or put the rub on and to the BGE it goes?

  • Looks real fine and satisfying

    I inject my butts, and then from the injection liquid that leaks back out of the butt, i coat the butt with the liquid injection before applying the powder (Bad Bryons) rub.

    @swb10pin I just inject & then add rub. I start the egg get it going do some other things getting all set up, so usually 30 mins or so, then I throw on the meat.

    Please rephrase all of that. I'm sorry, I'm twisted like a country road.

    Thats why i posted the pictures:
    1) See the butt with the injection leaking out?
    2) pick up the butt at this point and spread the injection liquid all over the butt.  Then apply the rub!
