I am going to be smoking 2 - about 5lb Pork Shoulders tomorrow morning on my Old Smokey Electric Smoker. Total weight of the 2 shoulders together was 10.81lbs. I bought these 2 cryo-packed together from Costco this afternoon and I have rubbed the pork with a slight variation of the Mild Bubba Q Rub that Chef JimmyJ posted on the below thread.
I did not have any Turbinado sugar or sweet paprika, so I used white sugar and smoked paprika. I have also read the Instructions from the thread that Meowey has in the Pork Sticky so I plan on foiling them at 165°F I did not get any pictures of the pork before I put the rub on them. I was excited and forgot.
Here are the 2 pics of the shoulders with the rub on them.
I plan on using a 75% Apple Wood / 25% Hickory Wood mix when I smoke them and I plan on starting them at about 6 or 7am so I can get an early start on the cook. I will be updating this thread with more pictures of the pork butts after put them in the smoker and throughout the cook.
Let me know what you think
