    That pulled pork looks perfect. I love that you didn't shred it to mush and left it in big chunks, and the bark looks delicious!

    Was the bark still crispy even though you finished it in the covered roasting pan?

    I did my first butt over the weekend and used the America's Test Kitchen method b/c I wasn't familiar with the smoker which required wrapping in it Al foil and finishing it in the oven. After wrapping it in foil, any bark lost all its texture due to being steamed in the foil.

    That's the nature of the beast. The bark will always soften up if you wrap the meat in foil and leave it wrapped for an extended time. Personally, I don't think that it's necessarily a bad thing though. You still get that smokey flavor, but since it has softened up it blends with the rest of the meat better. You can always remove the bark after pulling the meat from the smoker so it will stay crunchy before wrapping the butt and putting it the oven. This way the bark can be served as an appetizer. The other option is to just finish the cooking in the smoker which is what I do.

    I think I speak for many of my fellow forumites when I say how disappointed I was when I opened this thread only to find pictures of some stupid pork roast.

    Considering the demographics of this forum, I was overwhelmingly NOT disappointed after I opened this thread "only to find pictures of some stupid pork roast"

    Just saying....

    Yeah, I shudda said, "when I opened this thread, by Lucrecia...." Otherwise, we might have found ourselves in the Deliverence forum.
