Sunday Smoked Pork Shoulder Butt!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey guys! im getting ready for a long smoke tommorow.. i got myself a 11 1/2 pound "bone-in" pork shoulder butt.. from what i read this is a fairly large size compared to most of the butts.. but i can assure its one piece and i would have taken photos but its already rubbed and in the fridge.. but i dug out the wrapper from the garbage "with some gloves" to show u the label..

Foiling at 165 or letting it go unfoiled is a personal preference. They take less time if you foil them, but you won't get nice thick bark.

I never foil but again that is up to you...  It looks good so far...

Like said foiling is a personal preference.  I foil to help speed up the remainder of the cook.  I have found I still get a good bit of bark.
