i needed to pick up a few pork shoulders for my brother-in-laws b-day party this week end and saw that our local safeway had a killer sale on chops. i picked up a 7 pack for 11 dollars and these are cut about 3/4" thick. so i jumped on them. i decided to toss 3 in the smoker with cherry wood to see how they turned out. i vacuum sealed the other 4 for later use. i had the temp set at 185 and smoked for about 3 hours until the internal temp hit 160. i did not add any outside seasonings to see how they turned out. next time i will use apple wood, the cherry seemed a bit strong with this batch. trial and error...the name of the game. thanx for looking.
