Pork butt on the Saffire

Post by TMAN » Thu Dec 04, 2014 8:26 pm

My local butcher cut this for me today and getting ready to put in a brine for a low and slow on my saffire roughly 7 KG in weight

Image

Image
My brine in a concentrated form which I prepared yesterday , toasted all my aromatics, dissolved the salt , sugar , and mollaces , added some cider as we'll

Image

And in bucket ready to go in the fridge till tomorrow
Image

Will put it on tomorrow night with some apple wood for a light smoke as I have the kids around and they aren't fond of a heavy smoke. Now to get a rub going .

Will post pictures as it goes
Question . Fat cap up or fat cap down ??

Cap up, you want the fat to baste the meat!

Haven't found one yet...the hole size is a pain! Half inch is easy to find!

Next day and this is the brined product , out patted dried waiting for the rub
Image

Rubbed with my own rub

Image

Covered in with glad wrap ,for a few hours
Image

Uncovered and letting get to room temp while I light the saffire
Image
Image

And after half an hour to forty five minutes in getting the saffire to temp , the pork goes on.
Image

After two hours sitting on 262 keeping an eye on it adjusting the daisy wheel , would like it a tad lower

Been on for roughly 9. 30 hrs currently sitting on

Image
The internal temp has been on that temp for an hour or so ,I'm assuming it's plateaued.

That will be the stall mate, when it's rendering all the sinews/cartlidges/fats. You will have to wait until it's pushed through for good pulled pork. It can take 2hrs or 4 what matters is you get through it. I've been checking how the bone feels latly, as in if its ready to slide out. I'm not an expert but that is what is working for me.

If you want to speed up the stall you can foil it at this stage. It won't be taking on any more smoke flavour now anyway. Wrap in baking paper first then foil, and add a splash of apple juice or similar.

Went out for a while and just got back in its now 11.55 am and internal temp is still same . This is my first pulled pork that I'm not going to foil , I'm going to see if there is a significant difference in the bark .
