Hey all, i am gonna be doing a smoked pulled pork for a 4th of July family get together. I bought the soluble Pa’s black bull, butter garlic seasoning, prime rib seasoning, and ultimate pork chop and roast rub. Keep in mind i cant have it spicy for the family members. So i was thinking first with the black bull of using chicken broth to make it injectable instead of water. Also for the rub using the butter garlic, or should i use the ultimate pork rub instead
@twilliams I would think that broth or beer would work great with the Pa’s.
Perhaps you could try tying a piece of twine around the butt vertically and apply one rub to each side to try both at once? Like a half and half pizza!
@twilliams The broth will work well as long as it is thin enough to not bother your injector. As for the seasoning, I would go with the ultimate pork rub as the butter garlic and Pa’s don’t seem like they will compliment each other as well, at least to me, I could be wrong though!
@Jonathon the controller is from Auber Instruments. I ran PID controllers for 8 years and wanted the WIFI / App capability and also program capability to help drive consistency. It is capable of handling 1800 watts but I knew that I would be drawing more than that running 2 heating elements with fans from a convection oven so I hooked up a solid state relay in line to handle to load. The controller has 6 steps that can be programmed to jump to the next step based on time or temp from probes. It also lights the igniter in my smoker attachment when programmed to.
The other app shown is for the Fireboard thermometer. I purchased this so I could have a thermometer that I could move around to the grill or oven, access remotely and log sessions . It really helped me become aware of the heat variation that I had in my custom 1950 International Harvester fridge / smoker that was my grandfathers. This is why I added the convection oven fans and also the two fireplace fans.
@craigrice I actually eat very little of it. Give most as gifts at Christmas. I will hold some back for company or special occasions
@leesanders looks good , how long will that last ?
