Hot & Fast Kosmo Butts (pics and a bonus recipe)
Tuesday I did a test butt cook with Kosmo's pork injection. I loved the beef formula,
so I was sure this will be equally good.

I mixed 3/4 cup mix to 3 cups of apricot nectar and injected them evenly.
I then applied a liberal coat of my competition rub and let them marinate for
two hours.

They went on the UDS at 350*.

Two hours into the cook and the two smaller (top) butts (just shy of 7 lbs each)
were at 122* and 124*.

The UDS vents were wide open and running at about an average of 315*, but I
use a water pan, so a lower temp at the grates is expected.

The water was almost gone, so the temp ramps up from here, just like I
want it to.

Note that the money muscles are coloring up nicely.

Three hours in, and I checked the temp on the larger butt on the lower rack
(about 8 lbs). As you can see, it was at 138.6.

The two smaller butts on the top rack were at 154*.

While waiting for the porcine festivities, I cooked up some a quick and easy
beans.

What's hog without beans, right?

Saute a diced medium yellow onion in a little olive oil and garlic salt until
just they are starting to brown around the edges.

Deglaze with about 1/4 cup of apple juice.

Add one can of Bush's "Southern Pit Barbecue" and "Homestyle" beans
(the large can).

Add a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce, cover and cook at very
low heat for about an hour.

Done!

At 4 1/2 hours in the smaller butts were at 181*. Time to wrap these bad boys
with some apple juice!

I double-wrapped the smaller guys with about 1/4 cup of apple juice each, and
I put them back on the top rack.

The larger butt (lower rack) was at 168* so I left it there.

Note that there really isn't much of a plateau when cooking hot-n-fast. The meat
just powers right through it.

At 5 hours and 45 minutes the smaller butts were done (at 197*)

Here is the shot of the finished product.

I must say that I am very impressed with Kosmo's injection. The moisture and
flavor were outstanding. It really boosted the pork taste without even so much
as a hint of an off flavor.

I highly recommend it!

Well, my big cuts go on between 2 AM and 3 AM, but I still seem to manage to get just a few hours of sleep.

Dude, I have never fired any cooker up at 5 or 6 at any comp, so I can't relate. Smile Even in my WSM days I put my big cuts on at about 10 or 11.
