Cooking times

Post by Gizo » Wed Jul 27, 2016 5:05 pm

I have smoked two scotch fillet porks today.
One was 2.1 kg the other 2.3 kg.
They have been on since 8:15 this morning at around 120c
One was ready at 2:30 the other is still going and sitting at 89c .

Why such a difference in cooking times?

pork neck or scotch fillet is good for low and slow, as to why the difference in cooking times, perhaps different temps in sections of the cooker, sometimes no two bits cook the same. Hope it came out good

The pork neck is part of the money muscle that comes out of the pork shoulder, and the scotch fillet is cut from the rib section very tender and needs searing as apposed to low and slow

Pork Scotch Fillet is cut from a different muscle than Beef Scotch Fillet, you can keep saying your version until the cows come home but it won't make it right. Pork Scotch Fillet comes from the pigs neck.
