Having a little get-together so this is the first time I've smoked two shoulders for PP. 7lbs each.
I tried a couple new things this time.
Instead of mustard to hold the rub, I used a light EVOO.
I'm using Todd's Mesquite pellets for the first time.
I'm also trying a couple new finishing sauces and finally, I made two types of fresh slaw from scratch.
Started at 4pm Friday.
MES 40 is reading 236° but the mav is reading 195°. I think the mav probe is hanging by the front window which should be cooler but not that much cooler.. Might have to get a third temp probe to see who is on the fritz...
8 hours in and the stalling has finally begun....
These are sitting right on the racks with pans below. Both IT temps are only reading around 145°.
I've decided to not foil them because it's late and I'll be up in 5 hours. I'm hoping the temps will be close to 200° if not at or around 205° when I get up to check on them. Then I'll foil them, depending on the IT, and towel and cooler them for a few hours - or as long as I can hold off from eating some PP sandy.
Let's hope they don't dry out while I'm sawing logs!
