So I finally got to try out the new Akorn, that has been sitting on the deck for the last 3 weeks ( I know, I know). Started off with a rack of ribs. Read a lot of posts, here, there and everywhere to determine the best cook method. Went with 1.5 hrs on the grill uncovered, about 40 mins wrapped in foil with a little apple juice and a final 15 mins uncovered with a coat of Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory and Brown Sugar for the sauce. Turned out not bad for a first attempt. The missus seemed to enjoy them. Time for some tweaking to make them ours!
Ok so I started my first pork butt cook with a pit temp of 275. It is a 8 pound bone in pork but. After 2 hours the internal meat temp is already 124!?! Is this normal? I was thinking at 275 I was looking at about an hour a pound? I backed the pit down to 250. Should I be worried or am I over thinking this?
Here's my entry for October's PP challenge. This is actually a double leftover. I made sloppy joes using leftover pork smoked in my Akorn. Since that's basically a pp sandwich that will not be my submission. I decided a pp omelette was the ticket with a Carolina twist BBQ sauce and coleslaw. It was scrumptious. Chopped Onions, red peppers, green peppers, yellow peppers and a 3 cheese blend rounded out the rest of the ingredients.
