Day 68 – BBQ Pork

Sunday, April 22, 2007: BBQ Pork

Picked up a boneless pork butt from the butcher for Sunday dinner.

The meat got a dry rub (chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, smoked paprika, oregano) and an overnight stay in the fridge.

Sunday afternoon, I fired up the Weber and soaked some cherry wood, pruned from my in-laws yard as part of their year-end clean up, in a big bowl of water.

The pork butt went on the weber for about five hours at 250. It came off the cue and was all smokey goodness.  Baking potatoes went on for the final hour and green beans wrapped in foil went on for about 10-15 minutes.

This is a very low maintenance meal. 

I pulled it into shreds – the kids getting unsauced versions, while K. and I doused ours in a cider-vinegar based bbq sauce.

The Verdict
The kids really liked the pork and the green beans, they took a pass on the potatoes (who doesn’t like potatoes, sometimes I can’t figure my kids out).

While I liked the sides, I’d really like to figure out how to make BBQ baked beans…
