My present to you..........

Pork Recipes for MTF's Chef

Smoked Pork Butt "Kyle Style"

2 cups cider vinegar
1 cup corn oil
1 can pineapple concentrate
1/4 cup salt (non-iodized)
1/8 cup paprika
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/8 cup white pepper
1 chicken bouillon cube (dissolved in 2 tablespoons water)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup salt (non-iodized)
1/3 cup black pepper
1/4 cup paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon celery salt
1 tablespoon hickory salt
1 tablespoon msg, optional
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground sage
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon honey

1 pork butt (approximately 5 pounds)
Apple and hickory wood chips, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes, for smoking
Charcoal, for smoker

Place all ingredients in a non-reactive bowl and whisk together.
Rub: Place all ingredients in a container with a lid and shake well.

Glue: Whisk ingredients together and place in a squeeze bottle.

Pork: Reserve 1 cup of marinade and set aside. (The reserved marinade will be used to base the pork during the cooking process.) Inject a little marinade into the pork butt in numerous places. Place pork in a resealable plastic bag and cover with remaining marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours.

Remove the pork from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels.

Cover pork with a light coat of the "glue" mixture to help the rub stick. Sprinkle generously with rub, making sure to work it into the meat.

Prepare a smoker to 225 to 250 degrees F and add the apple and hickory wood chips to the lit charcoal.

Place pork on smoker. Be careful not to over-smoke. After 2 hours, baste pork with reserved marinade and return it to the smoker for 1 hour. Baste again and return to smoker for 1 more hour. Repeat 1 more time, with the basting and smoking for 1 more hour. Remove pork from smoker, wrap in aluminum foil and return to smoker until the pork has an internal temperature of 200 degrees F. (Alternatively, you can finish cooking the pork in a low oven preheated to 250 degrees F). When the pork has reached 200 degrees F, remove it from the heat and let stand for approximately 15 to 20 minutes before slicing or pulling.

Pulled Pork

Pork Preparation:
5 pounds pork butt or shoulder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Vegetable oil, for searing
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 large white onion, medium diced
1 jalapeno, chopped
1 (2 liter) bottle cola
Pork Seasonings:
1 cup cooked black beans
1 red onion, julienne
2 green onions, sliced thin on the bias
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup Spanish extra-virgin olive oil
1 jalapeno, julienne
1 bag tortilla chips, optional

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
To prepare the pork, slice the pork into manageable 1-inch thick pieces. Season with salt and pepper. In an ovenproof pan, add the oil and sear the pork on all sides until a golden brown crust has formed. Remove the pork from the pan and add garlic, onion and jalapeno. Saute until tender and add cola. Bring to a boil, and put the pork into the cola. Transfer to the oven and braise for at least 1 hour or until the pork is fork tender. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature. Do not remove pork until cool.

To make the seasonings, shred the room temperature pork. Toss the pork with the black beans, and 1/2 of all of the ingredients. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and transfer to a serving dish. Take the remaining ingredients, combine them in a mixing bowl, season with salt and pepper and place them onto the pork as a garnish. Serve with tortilla chips.
