  • Re: Real Deal Pulled Pork- I finally get it (took long enough)

    I would say to Add it to all that you pull to eat today. They can add sweet baby rays on top of it. The vinegar adds a ton to the pork- you can still use regular sauce on top if you want
    Yessir. I use the vinegar sauce once pulled and stir up nicely. Then use a different sauce once plated
  • Re: Fire Went Out on Butt Overnight!

    It is fine. Going forward go higher than 225. Really no need to go that low. And if that's dome thermometer you are closer to 200 at
    grate temp. Needs to be stabilized for a while if going temps that low before meat goes on

    Just tell others to bring food to the shindig and they won't know what got them sick. I kid. 

    You should be fine. First any bacteria were likely  killed with the temps. Second the heating back up should kill any that remain. 

    Few things of concern for next time. The fire should not go out. Like never. If egg wasn't getting over 230 or whatever and egg was wide open there has to be lack of oxygen flow internally. Usually the little holes in the factory fire grate. Shine flashlight up there or see if you see fire glowing through grate holes. If not the holes are blocked with ash. You can poke them with coat hanger to clear holes. There's an off chance your lump could have gotten damp but thinkyou would have known that. The temp should be stabilized for a good while before meat goes on which sounds like you did. How do you light lump? Shouldn't trail to a side and go out without other pieces igniting. Unless you didn't have enough lump in. For long cooks always fill to top of fire ring to be safe. Enough lump (fuel) and airflow (oxygen) and you should never go out. If you had enough lump you had to have O2 restricted somehow likely how I mentioned above. 

    Good luck. Remember to cut against the grain and shoot for probe with no reistance.
