Last weekend I did a cook for a big party we had - two pork butts. They were both about the same size - 8lbs or so.
I cooked them both on my large for about 6 hours at 350. I pulled them when they were both just under 200 degrees via the ThermaPen.
The pork came out great, but I ran into a problem pulling the meat. About halfway through each one, I got to a core that was really tough to pull. I'm guessing they were simply under-cooked, and I probably should have left them on a bit longer.
Anyone else ever experience this?
The good news is that there was plenty of pork to go around and everyone thought it was great.
Sometimes nothing can be a real cool hand.
