The Renowned Mr. Brown

     I decided to try another recipe on my “to do” list.  From the book Smoke & Spice by Cheryl and Bill Jamison.   It came out great.  The rub produced a nice thick bark.  I halved the amount of black pepper to keep it from being to hot for others.

Southern Succor Rub

1/4 Cup Ground Black Pepper          1/4 Cup Paprika

1/4 Cup Turbinado Sugar                  2 Tbs Salt

2 Tsp Dry Mustard                             1 Tsp Cayenne

Succor Mop (optional)

Remaining Southern Succor Rub      2 Tbs Salt

2 Cups Cidar Vinegar                          3 Tbs Black Pepper

1 Tbs Wocestershire Sauce                1 Tbs Paprika

1 Tbs cayenne

The night before the cook, rub a 6-8lb pork shoulder (Boston butt).  Put the butt in a plastic bag and refrigerate overnight.  Apply another coating of rub and sit out at room temp for 45 minutes.  Smoke at 200-250 degrees for appox 1.5 hours per pound.  Mop about once per hour.


The blade bone pulled out of the 8 pound butt cleanly after the internal temp reached 200 degrees after about 14 hours on the smoker.  I used pecan and hickory the entire cooking session.


And here is the pork after pulling.


I will definetly do this recipe again.  The chewy seasoned bark is addictive.

    It’s hard to go wrong with any of the Jamison’s recipes. This is one of my favorites in the Smoke and Spice book.
