I will be starting a shoulder at 10PM in my Master Forge propane with modifications (gaskets, upgraded water pan). I will be using my maverick so chamber and meat temp will be good to go.
I want a good bark but also want it to be tender. I was thinking to foil it at 170 and then take it out of the foil at 190 and firm it back up till it reaches 205. Will that dry it out? Will I lose my bark because of the foil? With my upgraded water pan I get great hummidity....and I will spritz with apple juice and rum.
Here are the options I as I have read them:
Foil at 165 and leave it till 205
Foil at 170 and unwrap at 190 and firm up till 205
I will be resting in foil for a couple of hours as the pork is for a family event a little later in the day.
I am really torn on what to do....I would love to hear from you guys on what you think is best.
