One night I lit the fuse, put the pork on the Weber and went to bed. Bottom vent wide open, top vent almost wide open. It must have been mind if windy because I woke up about 6 hours later and what shoulda took about 9 hours to burn was just about fizzled and the butt looked like it was gonna be burnt. IT TURNED OUT AMAZING!!
Yeah sounds about what happened to me lol.
Thats why I love pork shoulder because its so temp forgiving. If you just give it enough time it will turn out good.
I just got the IT at around 200-210* so I just pulled it off the grill a few minutes ago. People are coming over around 4 so Im just gonna let it rest in the cooler until we are ready to eat. Gonna make some of Dutch's baked beans on the grill while we wait.
Already made some BBQ sauce that people can put on if they like.
Other than that I got the coleslaw, hot sauce, and dill pickles ready to go!
My only worry might be if its too smokey. I used about 7 small hunks of pecan wood. I pulled a little piece of the bark off before I put it in the cooler and it tasted pretty good so I am sure its fine because pecan is a lighter wood. The smoke ring looked really good!
