Since the trees have already budded out and I know some of the apple trees at the back of our property need trimming, I killed two birds with one stone.

There is a soon-to-be Bacon palooza pictorial coming at some point and I plan to use apple wood so it will be ready when the time comes. This is more than enough for today.

Then all the butts get a rub down

After 8 hours in the smoker, the pork butts were ready for pulling.

Image

Pulling pork is a perpetual pain in the posterior and something I wanted to speed up so I went to Ace hardware and bought a cast iron floor drain (like you probably have in your basement floor) a few 3/8 bolts and nuts and a 12 inch long bolt to make the perfect pork puller.

I invited the folks from Youtube over to have some pork and to video the perfect pork puller in action. The pork is only minutes out of the smoker and very hot. You will notice the steam. The Youtube folks were nice and all but they sure can eat. Click below to watch the video.

I only pulled two of the butts, the other 3 will be vacuum sealed and frozen for another day. Then I added just a splash of BBQ sauce to the two I pulled and mixed it tp.

Add some beans, potato salad, a bun and a big frosty beverage and call it day.

Then he would be RICH Sweeny instead of Retch Sweeny. Not a bad tradeoff.
