Pork shoulder in the snow with Q-view

Discussion in 'Pork' started by flip me over, Feb 28, 2015.

  1. Getting ready to smoke a 9lb pork shoulder tomorrow. It's going to be almost 30° out tomorrow, so I thought it would be a good day to do it.


    Gave ti a mustard bath, then a good rub,and put it to bed for the night. Got everything ready to set up outside when I get up tomorrow morning. Should be a good day, I'm looking forward to it!

  4. Well, I didn't get up as early as I wanted, but I got everything in just before 8am.

    All set to go.


    Fire pan full.


    Put the meat on the bottom rack this time. 


    Potatoes in a pan with boiling water. I've not done them like this before, but we don't like them just done on a rack. The skin always is ti dried out. I used to put potatoes in the water pan, but I switched to sand in there. It was a big improvement, now I just have to get potatoes down. Never tried whole onions before, and I ran out of room on the rack lol. So I just put the others on top of the taters. 


    Yup, we got some snow!

  6. 4 hours in, added more fuel.


    Potatoes are about 1/2 done (so excited! I think we almost like taters water-smoked better than the pork!) 

    Onions are nice and tender. Taste pretty darn good, too. Should make a good sandwich topping. Bet some would be really good in scrambled eggs.

    Looking good!

    Do the onions serve a purpose during the smoke?  I haven't seen that before

    Those onions would be great in salsa or beans on burgers and steaks endless possibilities!!

    I bet you could make some pretty amazing bacon jam with those onions.
     
  10. Hi Mike, 

    No, I just wanted to try smoked onions. I like to cook with them and thought they might taste good. They do![​IMG]

  14. Ok, the potatoes are done. I rinsed the bitter cooking water,and they are pretty darn good. 


    Ready to come out.


    Pulled the shoulder out of the snoker at 170° Wrapped in foil and into the oven to finish up. The house smells wonderful!

  16. I finally got a chance to post the last pictures. The bone pulled out nice and clean.



    I like a good crusty roll, meat topped with coleslaw. I added some slices of the smoked onion... They put that sammy over the top [​IMG]
