Butts and Apps

Posted most of these pics on another thread, but here goes some more. 

About $23 for 18 lbs-ish of pork butt. These were boneless.  Didn’t realize that until I went to pull them. Turned out ok I think. Bark is tasty, but didn’t try the leaner pieces. Freezing the meat tomorrow to reheat for another date. Might add some apple juice and a little butter when I do. 

Did these low and slow with apple and hickory for about 10 hours. Once the bark looked decent, I foiled them up until they were finished. 

Also tossed some meatballs and little smokies on top of the butts to pickup some smoke before saucing them up with a mix of cranberry jelly and bbq sauce. Finished those in the oven. Kids destroyed those tonight along with some cornbread. 

Butts finished and shredded up. Off for the freezer tomorrow.

    That is "real nice!"

     I like bringing them back up to temp in some Apple cider vinegar!  Give it a try!

    Great Cook!
