Smoked Meats

Hey everyone I think I already know the answer to this but are slow smoked pork butts, chicken brisket Paleo? I know the rubs and sauces I use would have to be modified to be paleo, but is that method of cooking and meat paleo. I did some searching but couldnt come up with anything.

Re: Smoked Meats

I don't think the cooking method should factor in the "Is it paleo?" equation.

But if you think about it, smoking the meat is more "paleo" than throwing it in an oven or slow cooker.

Yeah thats kind of what I was thinking as well. I have a killer smoked pork butt recipe that I want to do this weekend. I always have a ton of leftovers, and it makes great lunches and dinners. Obviously cant make a sandwich but oh well. Does anyone have a paleo pork rub by any chance? Or is there such thing?

Re: Smoked Meats

Anything that involves herbs and spices and doesn't use chemical additives is good enough. Throw in some apple cider vinegar in there and, dare I say it, a few tsps of blackstrap molasses. Bangin.

Re: Smoked Meats

The recipe I use for smoked pork butt has sugar in the dry rub, and black strap molasses in the mop. I don't worry about it since it is a very small amount considering the amount of pork I am smoking.

Re: Smoked Meats

In the interest of science I think you should send me a sample (10lbs should do) I will run it through my top secret testing laboratory where I will grind it up add some acids and enzymes then break it down and utilize the nutrient content and make a full evaluation. I'll be happy to supply you with a full written evaluation.
PM me for the address.
