Unfortunately my weekend is such that I only had time to do one. 8 bucks will give my family at least 2 meals.

It's at 160 degrees over a 245 degree pecan fire. Pics might follow.

So here's the first pic. This cook was was a nightmare of unpreparedness. I didn't have apple juice, so I injected it with Dr. Pepper. I didn't have any peach or apple wood, so I just used pecan. I could find my 9×13 pan, so I had to pull it in that stupid metal bowl. And I forgot to put brown sugar in my rub so I added it about 7 hours into the cook and it obviously didn't melt all the way. Still, all is well that tastes good, and this still tasted spot on.

2nd pic.

This is pulling the bone out. I cooked it to 189 internal temp in about 14 hours and the bone slid right out like it's supposed to. My fire crapped out on me or I would have taken it to 195.

Last one.

Pulled with two forks. It pulled apart like butter. The hardest part was mixing the juices and pics up from the bottom. I missed my 9×13 pan. I probably ate a half pound before it got to the table.

I was going by the first pick. The other pics looked just fine!
No doubt. There's nothing like the colorful mosaic of black, pink and tan that is a well smoked pile of pulled pork. Not like that brown garbage you get at most restaurants.
