HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

Okay, so I bought a new Brinkmann 60K BTU, 5 burner gas grill on Memorial Day weekend. I have always wanted to cook a boston butt, but never had the time. So, I am doing it this weekend. this will be a long and slow process, so picks that I will be posting tonight are all that will be posted until tomorrow morning, when this bad boy hits the heat. I will be only using one or two of the 5 burners, depending on the ambient temp as the day progresses to keep the grill at around 250-300 degrees. the wood chips I will be using are hickory chips and they will be placed in a pan directly over the lit burners after they have soaked. So, now I will get started:

You can see in the pic below what we will need.
I have 1 nearly 8 pound Smithfield boston butt, 1 gallon of non sweetened apple juice, 2 jars of pork rub, a thermometer, 2 large pans for the butt itself, 2 small pans for the wood chips, I am using hickory chips, but you can use whatever you want, and a flavor injector.


Okie dokie, now we open the pork and we inspect the fat cap. this fat cap along with the fat in the pork will help bast the meat as it cooks. If the fat cap is too heavy, then trim some off. This one is not heavy at all, so I am leaving it all on.


Next we grab a bowl and mix some of our rub with the apple juice. we then inject it into the pork, getting good coverage.



After we get it injected, we use the rest of one of the jars or how ever much rub it takes to completely cover the butt. get it on real good, all over all sides of the meat.


All we need to do now is cover up the pork butt and let her sit in the fridge and get happy with the rub and apple juice. Tomorrow we start the actual cooking part.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

Alright fellas...it is about 10 mins til 8AM here and this is how we are gonna start up the morning. We are gonna cut open our hickory chips and pour about a cup to a cup and a half of the wood chips in there and add water. We need these things to soak for about 1/2 hour, so they will produce smoke when placed over the heat. If we don't soak them, they simply burn...we DO NOT want that.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

Okay fellas, what I have done now is drug my grill out of the back porch, then I removed one of the burner racks and the warming rack. I fired up 2 of the burners up til the temp reached 200degrees then turned on off.



While we wait for the grill to settle heat wise, we go into the kitchen. We get a spray bottle and mix apple juice with some rub. We will use this to baste the pork every hour or so.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

Okay after a little bit, I go back and look at the temp on the grill and it is holding at a steady 250-260 degrees, so I drain the water from the pan of wood chips and place them directly over the lit burner.



Then I throw the butt on the grill



Now it's just sit back and let the heat and smoke do the work now, I will go back ever so often and check on my wood chips and replenish when needed. It's a good idea now to go ahead and get more chips soaking. every hour go and spray a little of our apple juice/rub blend onto the butt too.

******IMPORTANT*******
Make sure that you point that fat cap of the butt up. This will allow the fat to baste the meat too as it drips down.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

UPDATE:
As you can see from the pic below, the grill is doing an excellent job at holding a steady temp. We are slightly under 300 degrees, which is great.



I noticed some ash forming on this pan of wood chips, so I am going to switch them out.



Guys, the smoke from the hickory chips is amazing. Ever since I opened the grill up, thats all I have been able to smell.

I've had pulled pork, but usually it's just actual pulled pork (none of your flavorings) with bbq sauce. Not as fancy as yours.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

update...checked the temp about 5 mins ago. It is just a little under 170. I rotated the pan on the grill to even out the cooking.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

well.. i knwo what i'm doing next weekend!

Questions:

About how long did you cook this for? from the posts it seems like you cooked it for approx 7 hours. Which would seem about right for an 8lber at 275 or so

With the rub and the apple juice, how much rub did you per say cup of apple juice. I wouldnt think you would need all that much but i could be wrong.

Also when you rubbed the butt before you put it in the pan, did you coat it with olive oil or anything or just straight rub

Questions:

About how long did you cook this for? from the posts it seems like you cooked it for approx 7 hours. Which would seem about right for an 8lber at 275 or so

With the rub and the apple juice, how much rub did you per say cup of apple juice. I wouldnt think you would need all that much but i could be wrong.

Also when you rubbed the butt before you put it in the pan, did you coat it with olive oil or anything or just straight rub
I believe I put it on @ 8:30AM and took it off at about 3:30AM. But don't go off of that. Internal temp on a pork roast if you are gonna slice it should be about 170-185 degrees, if you wanna pull the pork for sammiches cook it til 195-205 degrees.

As far as the fun goes, for the injecting solution I just out maybe 1/4 cup of rub with enough apple juice to make it really runny.

As far as rubbing the pork itself, the Smithfield one was really juicy in the vacuum pack it came in, so the rub stuck really well on it. You could however use anything to bind the rub to the pork though, like apple cider vineger, apple juice, oil, ya know, have some fun with it.

Where's the final product on the plate with the rest of the crap you made? If I see potato salad I may just cry.

Mo, if you were on my FB you would have that answer.

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

You motivated me to pull a steak out of the freezer to hopefully grille tommorow. I need a new grille. I'm thinking about a $30 tabletop one since I only grille for two.

Those charged with marijuana possession are Worthing High School teacher Sean Thomas, Wheatley High School administrator Gina Thomas and Whittier Elementary School teacher Susan Michael.

So it looks like they're targeting the teachers at schools that begin with "W."

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

From KC.. you add the apple juice to the wood chips a day in advance. Rub, dry rub is just that.. you rub it dry on the meat. If you want to marinate the meat prior with some type of concoction that is a different step.. BBQ POLICE IN EFFECT ON THIS ONE!!!

were you think APPLE WOOD SMOKED gets it's name from?? Well anyway that is from some pro smokers ( BBQ restaurant owners and award winning bbq recipes holders).. brisket an other things are all done different. It is the little prep things that make BBQ.

Looked like you liked it. keep er up. Also the true BBQ guys use briquetes.. they don't use gas.

I have nearly rebuilt this damn truck 100%!!

Re: HOW TO: Smoked boston butt on a gas grill.

meh, I dont fall for the whole briquettes over gas thing...this was true bbq, cause well, I seen it with my own eyes...lol...

I believe the term apple wood smoked comes from smoking the meat with wood from an apple tree (apple wood chips) which I could have used if I had went to Lowes, but I was already in WalMart and they had hickory and mesquite chips there.
