Have a day off, and recently acquired smoker/grill to use.


Seasoned it up with Salt, pepper, and garlic.


Started it smoking 10:45.

what's your set up look like, the coal in the pic doesn't look like it will be enough for the entire smoke.

It is certainly not enough coals to last the whole smoke. I've been adding another handful of briquettes every 30-45 minutes





Also smoking some "country style ribs" that I had in my freezer, and roasting some red peppers to make a harissa.


Gives me something to do at home besides staring at the sun.

Looking good. Eastern NC vinegar sauce and hushpuppies, right?

no hushpuppies, but tell me more about NC vinegar sauce...

Where's your rub? Looks like it's gonna be dry...

You need to actually put the salt and pepper on the butts.

A bit underseasoned.

More than a bit I'd say... Not sure what OP's goal is though. Pulled pork? If so you'll be adding lots of sauce for flavor at consumption.

Pork butt I usually coat with mustard, then pack on rub so that it almost completely coats the butt. Plastic wrap it overnight before the cook. Right before putting it on I'll also inject it with a mix of the same rub and Dr Pepper or Coke. Also make a vinegar based mop to apply a few times throughout the cook.

Should look something like this before it goes on if you don't do an overnight wrap..

My plan is to pull it and eat it with harissa and sour cream.

I am realizing that I do need more heat though...

Looks a lot like mine. Slather on mustard then cover in rub.

Looks like a hunk of charcoal when you're through (between the beans and the bacon).

It's about 95% vinegar. I use apple cider vinegar, but some people use white vinegar as well. Mix in some hot sauce (I like Texas Pete), red pepper flakes, and some Worcestershire sauce, and salt to taste. It's real redneck stuff, and I love it. White hamburger buns, pulled pork, few splashes of the vinegar sauce, and coleslaw on top. Hushpuppies on the side, and sweet tea.

Puts Texas brisket to shame.

That vinegar sauce sounds pretty good, I'll have to try that some time.


The fruits of my labor.



I'll probably freeze a bunch of it tomorrow. I have a baby on the way and will need some quick keto friendly meals here soon.

Looks good man. Pork butts are hard to mess up. Let us know what u liked, and what u didn't like. What temp did u pull at?

Vinegar sauce is unique, but it's what I grew up on. Riles up my confederate soul, but it's not for everybody.
