    Had a large 10lb shoulder smoke over the weekend. Here are the photos:

    Trimmed up and ready for rub:

    Rubbed up. I decided to use honey instead of mustard to hold the rub but couldn't notice any difference in the taste.

    Wrapped up and into the fridge overnight

    Onto the smoker at 225-240. I smoked it with pecan and apple until it hit 140, then just used the coals until it hit 165. Sprayed every hour with apple juice and rum.

    Here it is at 165 before it went into the foil.

    It finished in 14 hours and then rested in a cooler wrapped in towels for 7 hours. Here it is finished when it was unwrapped. Why does it feel like Christmas morning when you are unwrapping your butt??

    All pulled and cleaned up.

    Onto the bun with slaw and sauce.

    Ready to go.

    And 1 happy dog with the bone.

    Thanks for reading!

    Nice looking pork.
    I tried using honey as a binder once and agree that there was no noticeable difference.
    If you are looking to add some good honey flavor to the meat try injecting it with honey and letting it sit overnight.

    I'm with jim on this one too if you want a honey flavor inject it and let it set in the refrig overnight. But that buut looks awesome and juicy too. Was that homemade slaw or what. But you did a jam up job on the PP [​IMG]

    Looks good. It's about time for me to do some butts. I am approaching almost a year since I have done them.

    Oregon, that is a serious violation! [​IMG]

    ChefAl: excellent PPB, everything turned out great and congratulations on an excellent sammie. Picture perfect, except for the plate (as pretty as yours are) it needs to be on a cheap foam one, or even better, one of them paper ones that bend under the weight of the baked beans and spill them on your lap!

    Great BIG hunk of pork well done!

    was purchased at Costco, but I did make the slaw sauce, finishing sauce, and the sauce on the sandwich from scratch. Thanks for the points!
