Greetings friends,

In a few days, I will be slicing a pork butt into ~2" steaks and low and slowing them to try and get a pulled pork maximum bark finished product. I'll prolly use the v-rack. The outside of the pork is always the tastiest. I shall update this thread as progress warrants....

See you on the other side!!

    Did something similar but I think it was more like pork on a stick.


  • Or maybe it was @chubbs


    Good luck anyway. Post some pics


  • I wonder if it will still be moist and tender if the total mass is reduced like that. Let us know how it goes.

    Don't see how it won't dry out before a good bark forms, but hey, what do I know?


    I'm ashamed what I did for a Klondike Bar!!

    I sliced an 8 pound (boneless) butt into 3 pieces trying for maximum barkage and it turned out great. I had to keep a closer eye on the temps because they all cooked differently. Good luck.
