Turbo Butt - cazzy style!

edited June 2013 in EggHead Forum
Was raining last night, so nothing went on and I said I would figure it on in the morning.  So at 8am, I decided I would do a turbo butt.  So I lit my egg, then went to the market and picked up a 8lb Boston Butt , apple smoke chips, and some Franklin's Sweet Vinegar BBQ Sauce. 

I decided to put my own spin on it, so I stabilized the egg at 320-325 dome.  My hope was to get some decent bark, so I lowered the heat a little, wrapped @170, and scratched the foil.  I opted for butcher paper since it breathes pretty well, and I think it did help preserve the bark.  Total cook time was 6 hours.

As expected, the bark is still better on a low n' slow.  However, this was fabulous, and I will definitely go this route again if i'm in a pinch!   ;)

    That looks awesome, think I'm going to try and do a overnight tonight as long as storms don't pop up in the next couple hours.  If they do I may give the turbo @cazzy method a go.

    Yeah, it's the same butcher paper that Aaron Franklin uses to wrap his briskets. Picked it up in Austin.

    Nice!

    The bark looks good. The one issue I have with turbo butts is the lack of bark, but the savings in time can't be beat. I'll try "cazzy style" next time!

    Cole slaw and sauce only. Lived in NC for 5-6 years and visited many times after that (inlaws) and never saw a sandwich with anything else. But if you like it, it's cool. :)

    Sure turned out well. Do you see any difference between parchment & butcher paper? Also see the alum pan, was that put on with the paper after 170?

    Um, parchment paper is a lil thinner, but you could probably double layer it.

    The aluminum pan was purely for transport and its where I pulled it.

    Franklins Sweet Vinegar is awesome! A must buy!

    Also, @Skiddymarker, the Apple Butter BBQ Sauce was great and it was perfect for pork. We're going to need to get a replacement!

    Don't know if it did or because I had a drip pan underneath. I cooked it indirect with my rig.

    No problem. :) I personally prefer KFC style cole slaw, which is the easy way out. This recipe is a dead ringer, though I think it's a bit better. Kind of a pita to chop all that cabbage, even with my food processor. It doesn't keep as long as KFC either. Guess my recipe doesn't include the preservatives.  :D Unless you're having a party, I would suggest cutting the recipe in half - this makes a LOT of slaw!! Enjoy!

    I always have pickles with pulled pork, mayo too. Looks good Cazzy. I turbo'd an 8 lber yesterday and used persimmon wood for smoke(1st time) and really liked the results.

    Glad the apple butter worked out, one of our favorites.

  • I recently met a guy who swore by butchers' paper for all his low and slows. I had never heard of it, but after seeing your pics and results, looks like a proven technique. I'll keep it in my back pocket.

    What species of persimmon? I have a "Fuyu" that I cut some wood off of and am going to use some next week.

    This was my "GO TO" slaw recipe for years and it is very good.  I "tripped" over a change that makes it MUCH better though.  I was in a hurry and had all the ingredients except i didn't have milk, nor the buttermilk???  Then i remembered i had a pint of heavy cream, that i was holding to make a potato recipe.  I used the full pint of heavy cream, in place of this recipe's milk and buttermilk  -----  try it you will like it!!!
