Thanks all for the compliments. I'm gonna need a rodeo clown to get my kids away from the meat cooler... I can't fight them off much longer ;)
Also: When I had a lil sample, the rub was too salt/peppery.. would probably be great for beef, but I'll use a more neutral-tasting rub for pork next time.
When you pull the pork and have the chunks with bark mixed it, it won't be too salty and peppery. The nice thing about an almost 10lb piece of meat is that it is very hard to overseason.
