My first SMF smoke thread - Pork Shoulder

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all

I'm smoking a couple shoulders today for a BBQ I'm hosting tomorrow.

Here they are after a night in the fridge:


And unwrapped:


Using a rub of paprika, brown sugar, salt, cumin, black pepper and cayenne pepper, amounts of which are highly classified and I'd have to kill you if I told you.

Here's the rig:


And the dog waiting patiently for scraps... Sorry bud it's gonna be quite a while


And here we go...


4 hours in, internal temp at 124

On this smoker, I've done brisket twice, ribs 3 times, two hams, salmon, a turkey, and fresh bacon once each.

So far it's been great. The second time I did brisket it was somewhat tough but I think that was a combination of my impatience at the plateau (I turned the temp up.. oops) and a bad cut. I got the cheap stuff. Everything else has been spectacular. My wife isn't much of a meat eater. She'll usually eat two or three baby back ribs at a restaurant if she ever gets them and the first time I made spare ribs she ate an entire half slab on her own. The temperature is incredibly easy to regulate. I don't have the time or patience to deal with charcoal. I'm sure there are flavor benefits to using charcoal but I'm happy with what I get. When I say it doesn't take much time with this electric guy here's an example - I changed my brake pads and rotors out front today and just had to check on the smoke every half hour or so. It's especially helpful when there's people coming to the house tomorrow and the wife has expectations of chores LOL

This is my first shoulder. My family gives me a hard time about not having done a shoulder until a year after I've started but now I'm doing it.
