Successful first pork shoulder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

First attempt at a shoulder went well yesterday. Smoked for 9.5 hours with a combination of hickory, apple, and pecan chips at 230 degrees. Starting weight was just under 8 lbs. After reaching 165 in the smoke, foiled it with a cup of apple juice and cranked the smoker up to 275. Took about 2.5 hours to get to 200. Took it out of the smoker, wrapped in towels and into a cooler for 1.5 hours. Unwrapped and pulled it apart. Bone pulled right out. Of course had to sample some even though will be serving it tomorrow. Made up a batch of some N.C. vinegar based sauce and some cole slaw to go with it. Very pleased how well it turned out.


Finished product
