Boston Butt Pulled Pork - In The Rain x 2

Came out GREAT!  Good bark and real juicy. 

Saturday night about 9:30PM I had the meat on around 275-300 @ the grill (grill was outdoors and it poured!). Went to bed and woke up a 7AM, temp was at 175.  Opened up the vents a bit and temp slowly came up to 300, wrapped in foil at 9AM, internal was about 165.  It got to 190 by 10:15AM.  FTC till 11:30AM then pulled. Unreal.

Let shoulders get to room temp, rinsed, dried then coated with mustard and Emeril's Essence seasoning. Used big chunks of Hickory. 

2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme

    Looking good!  I have purchased the big jar of Emeril's essence at Costco and it makes a great base for a rub.  I mix it with turbinado sugar and dry mustard powder.  

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • I'm about to cook another double boston butt, what temp do you suggest??? I got a DigiQ DX2 for Christmas so low temps will be easier.
  • With a controller, it really depends on how long you want to cook IMHO. 250-275 works well for me, but I'm controller-less.

    Since it'll be your first run with the DigiQ, you might consider aiming for 250 degrees.  That will give you some room (up and down) to recover from if things go astray on your first use. 

    Scan through these threads to take advantage of input from others:

  • I'm going to start around 5:30pm. And cook at 250F. Will post pics. If they are ready early then they'll just sit in the cooler.

    If you start at 5:30 and cook at 250, they could be done in the middle of the night. At 250, 1.5-2 hrs per lb is the rule of thumb, but you never know. IMO, 5 hrs is max in the cooler.
