***disclosure update: Adrenaline Barbecue Company (makers of the Slow ‘N Sear) loved this comparison video so much they offered me a video deal to make videos for their social media. I love the SnS so much I accepted. It didn’t have anything to do with this video or anything else I say on my own social media accounts, but I feel like that’s important to disclose. Also, to clarify that relationship came AFTER this video was made. BTW, I’m very excited about this! lol)
If you like this Weber Summit smoked pulled pork video, you’ll probably like this one as well.
(Texas smoked brisket on the Weber Summit Charcoal Grill. The Weber 27 (26.75) Kettle is not in the brisket cook video, but the Weber Summit is…and the bbq goodness that came off of it was amazing. One of my most popular videos.
In this video, I smoked Texas Style BBQ pulled pork in the Weber Summit Charcoal grill and compared it to pulled pork cooked in the the 27 inch Weber charcoal kettle (aka the 26.75 kettle) with the Slow ‘N Sear XL (SnS) manufactured by Adrenaline Barbecue Company.
I used Kingsford charcoal and monitored the temps inside the Weber Summit Charcoal Grill with the Maverick et-732 temperature controller. Actually there were 2 temp controllers. One in the Weber Kettle with Slow ‘N Sear (SnS and one in the Weber kamado.
The smoked pork shoulder was cooked to 160 degrees and then foiled (Texas crutch …when in Rome) for the remainder of the smoke session, however the Boston Butts remained inside the Weber grills for the remainder of the smoke.
The pork shoulder took 10 hours to cook in the Weber Summit Grill and the 27 Weber kettle and then it rested for 2 hours before it was pulled. It was great.
The pork butt in the Summit had a lighter smoke profile and tasted more like the rub that was one it. The pulled pork cooked with the Slow N Sear in the Weber kettle had a much heavier smoke profile and deeper smoke ring penetration. The outcomes were surprising different yet equally fantastic.
I liked the pork off the Slow ‘N Sear (SnS) a little better and my wife preferred the pulled pork off the Weber Summit charcoal grill but we agree both pork shoulder (boston Butts, pulled pork) turned out great.
