SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
Good morning,It is 9:00 am. Meat on pit. Internal temp at 185,pit at 235.Added addtl coals earlier this morning.. Maverick doing a good job keeping tabs..on temps..Plan to take off at 195-200 or when I think it is done.. Pictures will follow..
Trying to post pics..Links giving me a hard time today. will try again later. Shoulder came out real good. taken of at internal temp 195.. however it is just a little dryTastes very good,should be just fine in sammies later today..
JON, I MIGHT NOT FOIL AND PUT IN COOLER. I THINK JUST A LOOSE FOIL AND A REST MIGHT BE FINE. ALSO, DONT THINK I WILL SMOKE ANOTHER SHOULDER PICNIC. A LOT OF WASTE.LARGE BONE.. BEING THAT IT IS ONLY THE TWO OF US ,I THINK A BUTT WILL BE FINE. PLUS A LOT LESS COOK TIME. THIS SHOULDER WAS ALMOST 91/2 POUNDS. 16 HOURS ON THE COOKER.ALSO WILL CUT BACK ON THE LIGHTED COALS AT THE BEGINNING. PIT RAN HOTTER THAN I WOULD HAVE LIKED. OTHERWISE VERY HAPPY WITH RESULTS.. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR COOK..

Don't forget that pulled pork freezes and reheats well! Divide what you have into smaller portions for later use. When you start getting low, look for butts/shoulders on sale and stock up again!
Yours looks great.
