Smokey Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Since the hubz was waking up at 4am to smoke brisket anyway, we thought we should toss a few more things onto the smoker to maximize his efforts. After debating between a second brisket and a few other meaty goodies, we decided on pulled pork sandwiches.

The hubz took 2 honkin' pieces of pork butt and covered them in the same rub that he used for the brisket and let them sit in the fridge overnight. That's a lotta meat!


At 4am, he put them on the top rack of the smoker so that the juices would drip down onto the brisket and baste it while keeping it moist.

After hours of slow cooking in the smoker, a beautiful bark developed and it was ready for pulling!

When I went to go "pull" the pork, it was so tender that it literally fell apart! You can also see how deep the smoke penetrated the meat. Yum!

And just like last time, I'll let this website give you directions on how to pull off the meat for this amazing sandwich. We added my husband's homemade bbq sauce like we did for the brisket and some homemade cole slaw that I'll blog about next.

that looks like it would have been hard to resist stealing bits to eat while you were pulling it apart!

I love the shot of all the roasts lined up on your counter! Dang, now I'm having smoker envy... but we already have so many contraptions that we never use. I just have to make sure we always say yes when invited over to someone elses place with a smoker!
