Picnic Roast

Discussion in 'Pork' started by carney, Jan 1, 2016.

  1. Started a smoke last night for a pulled pork dinner.  I am looking for a 202-205 degree target temp. 

    I got a Pork Shoulder 8.39lbs @ $1.34/pound

    I rubbed it down with a Bassi BBQ rub I make and decided to smoke on apple chips.

    35 degrees outside

    Smoker set to 225

    7:30PM - smoker started, apple chips added

    8:00PM – Picnic Roast place in the smoker, at 225 degrees

    8:30PM – Added apple chips.

    9:30PM – Added apple chips.

    10:30PM – Added apple chips.

    2:45 AM – Temp Alarm went off, smoker temp at 199 degrees.  Smoker was off.  Unplugged the smoker and plugged it back to regain power.  I think the extension cord is not making a proper connection.

    9:00 AM – Insert the temp probe.  Internal temperature 178 degrees

    10:00 AM – Internal temperature 185 degrees

    11:00 AM – Internal temperature 189 IT

    I'll post some pics of the finished roast. 
  2. I continued threw the afternoon and pulled it out at 4PM

    12:30 PM – Internal temperature 194 IT

    1:00 PM – Internal temperature 196 IT

    1:30 PM – Internal temperature 198 IT

    2:00 PM – Internal temperature 198 IT

    2:30 PM – Internal temperature 199 IT

    3:30 PM – Internal temperature 201 IT

    4:00 PM – Internal temperature 202 IT

    Right before i pulled it out of the smoker.

    A couple minute rest before I pull it.

    And finally it pulled. 

    It was served up with some homemade BBQ sauce, and coleslaw.

    That sure enough looks like pulled pork.

    How long was your rest, and did you wrap it for the rest?
  4. I let it rest for about 15 minutes.  Mostly because I find it too hot to pull.  I use to kitchen forks, I do not have bear paws.  I also did not wrap it.
