Pig, Glorious Pig!

Let's be clear--I love BBQ.  I grew up in the KC market, and it truly has the best BBQ on the planet.  I have been in Texas now, for ten years, and have been converting Texans, one at a time, to the joys of Gate's Sauce...

I love to cook BBQ.  Yard bird, smoked turkey breast, brisket...all are good, though I personally am not happy with my brisket, though the guys seem to think it is quite fine.  But my forte, and my preference, is for piggy....glorious, delicious piggy!  Be it spare ribs, pork butt, bacon and baby back...all are on my personal favorites menu.

We had friends in town last weekend, from out of state.  So I made plans to 'Q up some pork butt.  Since I was expecting up to 9 total around the table, I snagged two pork butts to smoke.  After all day on the smoker, the bones just pulled on out...

The pork after a few hours on the Weber.  Nowhere near done yet.


Done at last!

Delicious piggy goodness!

(Yes that is one of the Monkey's wrist rockets in the back ground.)

One tub of pulled pork went back home with our friends.  One got eaten by us, and a second started into, and two more tubs got frozen for later enjoyment!

Sauces of choice were Gate's (of course!) and Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory & Brown Sugar, which is a fine sauce if one prefers a sweeter taste than Gate's.


  1. Sounds like a great party. Looks like you really know what you're doing, too.

    Now I'm thinkin' it's time to be hungry.

    Happy Thursday!

  2. I have been craving BBQ lately. I am always looking for new sauces to try so I might have to order some Gate's.

  3. Oh I am drooling and very hungry now. B

  4. I love pulled pork & BBQ...the Pres doesn't though...:). JP
