Do You Scrunch Up Your Butt?
« on: May 15, 2013, 03:42:21 PM »


  went delving for information & found this goodie ~~~>

"Do you scrunch up your butt?"

At 1st glance, this might seem like a rather personal question......Butt I tried a little experimenting Sat nite / Sunday AM ~~~~~>

 My biggest butt almost filled this container used for rub / injection


Then noticed the meat's pliable enough to scrunch it up into one end.....



 So I thought: Would it cook any different if it was cooked all scrunched up as opposed to streched out ?

Stump's & Wicked Good & black walnut blocks ~~>


Followed the progression pretty tightly as I tried to make something scientific out of BBQ :
Started @ 10:30 PM ~~~>


Ron's "In the House", love that stuff!!
Also paid attention in class the other day on the thread about 'smoke ring' &
rubbed it several hours ahead of time & put on cold straight from the fridge

Did one all streched out..........


And one scrunched up......


Feedin' abt 40 people, so I did up some ribs, no streach on these dawgs, 6-1/4 # on the big ones....


And some of 'Jarhead's Roadhouse Green Beans'~~~>
(with a little extra meat thrown in,insipation from Italian Skewer's post on pulled rib tacos:
http://www.thesmokering.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=57897 )


These things are grate !!
Recipe can be found here:

About the time the ribs went on, the pork progession was a bit more than half way around the ring...

Coal all done...



Pop up timers out......



Then,gazing over my pork belly, the watch sez 1:00 PM
(13-1/2 hours, for those who like to keep track of such stuff)
197 & time to wrap & head out to cook more stuff !!!



Did a pot of beans w/ pork bark & bits (from previous stuff, frozen)


Two kinds of zuccini & asparagus.....



Grilled off about 30 sausages & some really good marinated
flank steak, 20 ears of corn,125 ABT's, etc, etc.

The ribs were terrific......So tender, they started to melt into the grates....


Thought I got a better pic here, but it's in the shade
Anyway, smoke ring went all the way thru...



The butts turned out just right.....
The verdict on strech??
1)Done at the same time
2)scrunched one slightly more moist than the streched
3)Not a big deal

I couldn't pull the pork fast enough for these folks, even with bear claws !!!
NO PHOTOS, It's GONE !!!

In the end,everybody had a good time......



After all, it's not rocket surgery, just BBQ......

To the original question ... Why not? It's gonna shrink nearly 40-50% anyway, eh?!???

Jam it on one of your 20+ kettles and sit back.  :D 8)

As always, Ken, a very nice display of outstanding eats.  :)

 Thanks, Ron !!!
I'm a pretty big fan of your cookups, also.....just want to make sure you know that !!!

Thanks, Mark.....ya they do this "All Hail the GrillMaster" stuff.....kinda get self-concious about it.....but it happens after everybody eats, so I don't usually get nervous & screw up....... 8)



PS: I do my best work late at night......silent & alone....... :-X
