    pigman34 You won’t get any heat from the Pa’s…it’s more of a flavor booster if anything. You should be able to get an idea on the rub by simply tasting it. I normally inject and apply a generous amount of rub and let sit overnight before heading to the smoker…I might just have to go get a Pork butt.

    pigman34 I just picked up a small pork butt at the store and decided to go with the Bloody Mary Jerky seasoning and the Pa’s injectable. I will rub the outside with horseradish to give the seasoning something to stick to and let it rest overnight. I will finish with Tajin seasoning to give it a little more acidity like a real Bloody Mary.

  • I just did a dozen pork butts in my smoker for a church function over the 4th weekend. I always leave mine rest over night. The most important part to me is to make sure you get the internal meat temp up to around 190 degrees… the connective tissue breaks down at that point and the pork pulls really easy and is super tender.

    pigman34 i injected, rubbed olive oil then with the excalibur ultimate pork rub and vacuum sealed and put in fridge over night before smoking. Everyone loved it

    pigman34 How did it turn out? Did you like the Pa’s Black Bull on pork?

    Jonathon sure did, and so did the other 11 out of 12 people conpared to that half hog i did. They said that both were delishous but like the black bull better. Now with that said the 1/2 hog had alot more hours of smoke time which gave it alot of smoke flavor where the black bull had more seasoning flavor. 1/2 hog was 23 hour cook with approx 6 hours smoke and one 8 lb pork butt only had 2 hours smoke. Took both meats up to 160° then cut off smoke, wrapped in foil and finished cook to 200°. Both were extremely juicy
