Smoking Pork Shoulder Tomorrow, a question.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I am preparing the shoulder for tomorrows smoke.


There is a flap of meat, should I cut it off, or tie it? If so, what kind of string?

Don't cut it off. It'll make a nice burnt end if untied. If you want to tie it, use cotton string. You could also spear it with a toothpick or skewer to hold it against the bulk. Good luck, and post pix!

It looks like where they de-boned it, maybe the butcher got a little sloppy.


Its in the smoker now, but the smoke seems to be white...


I am using RO lump with Hickory chunks, but I know wood, and there were quite a few red oak chunks in there.


my smoker is the grill pro vertical.


I have been taking pictures already for the Qview.

I was posting, and then when I went to check it, the smoke was blue, maybe the temps were still stabilizing.

It turned out great. I put it in at 7:30 am, and it was going well until I ran out of charcoal and had to buy some cowboy from the local grocery store. it burned like crap compared to the RO. at about 6pm, the in-laws were going to bed so we had to take it with us and I finished it in the oven, the plateau lasted forever, and at midnight I went to bed, I got up every hour, and checked it and it was finally up to about 190 at 530, so I wrapped it in foil and towels and let it set till 7, when I got up and pulled it. I used SoFlaQuer's finishing sauce, and it turned out great! My father In-law wants me to make it for the memorial day party next weekend. I think I will, along with some ABTs and maybe some ribs.


My Weber wireless thermometer malfunctioned, I think the wire got pinched in the door.
