    Rubbed down and layered with a little peach preserves, just waiting for the egg to get to temp and clear smoke...

    Came off the egg around 4am, quick rest and pulled.. Would of posted sooner but by the time that was done I had to shovel snow and off to work...Came out absolutely amazing, the bark was incredible and the pork itself was super moist... Probably the best "butt" I have ever laid my hands on (outside of my girlfriends of course - it is Friday after all)... Will be doing this method in the future as long as time permits it, especially the peach preserves part, thanks @YukonRon ;

    @johnmitchell hoping she is satisfied and then it's a win in my book !

    Great documentation and result.  If the winner is based on the amount of food left over, then a win, hands down.   
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.  
  • Oh... I would say that is the most succulent butt I have seen in a while. :o

    If you are serving a red BBQ sauce, add about 3/4 cup of the peach preserves. It is awesome. 
    My daughter would never eat pulled pork until she tried this. Now for every occasion we serve this, I have to make her the BBQ sauce as well. The pulled pork does not last long. We are lucky if we have enough for pulled pork nachos.
    I have had others tell me they were going to try apple preserves and jelly. 
    I have not tried that yet because, well, this is too good, and my family doesn't want me to. I have not read about how those turned out. I am sure they were really good. It has been my experience, pork butt is difficult to mess up.
    I smoke it with peach mostly, and occasionally I will throw in a chunk of Apple, or Pecan or both along with it. 
    It really does not matter. It is delicious when it come off the grill. 
    I hope your folks enjoy it as much as mine do.

    @yukonRon - thanks for everything, without your creativity and appetite this would of never happened and I would of never been introduced to a whole new world of pulled pork.  The sandwich I made this morning for breakfast (guilty) I mixed in some of the preserves with a sweet heat sauce and it was outstanding.  I picked that note up from one of your posts while searching the forum.  Absolutely amazing and this will be the way I cook pork butts in the future, and I will be trying with Ribs this weekend.

    I did ribs for a charity function about a month ago. I did several racks with peach and several racks without. When I told those that inquired, they went straight to those without. I pulled out one rack of the peach gave them one one bone. I did that twice. The peach was gone in <5minutes.
    i won't do pork any other way.

    Hey @yukonron I think I may be in the peach preserve with pork for life now as well... When doing ribs, like the butt, do you put the preserves on prior to putting onto the egg? Or after a few hours etc...thanks again

    Just like the pork butt. I put them on withe the preserves at the very beginning. It seems to help with moisture retention better. I have tried it both ways, my personal favorite is going to the grill prepped, and not having to mess with them on the process, until pulling. Both a very good.
