Good morning all SMF! Picked up a nice 5lb pork shoulder at the local grocery store that I usually don't shop in.
Don't know if the news about our local Market Basket chain is making it out to the big world, but we have three of them in town and I had to go to the next town over to do my grocery shopping.
Anyway, I got the shoulder, got it out of the fridge last and rubbed it all up good with some cajun seasoning, chili powder, cumin, red pepper and garlic powder along with some honey as a base to hold it all together.
Rolled out of bed at 0530 and fired up the half chimney of Royal Oak lump and fired her up. The chimney dumped into the minion charcoal setup pan of my Brinkmann ECB at about 6am and now we are just waiting for the smoker temps to get up to speed while the wrapped shoulder waits on the counter, coming up to room temps. I anticipate the shoulder will be on the smoker at 645!
Hope you guys will check me out during the day! Have a great Saturday and remember your smoker misses you. Go get some meat and get that TBS in the air!
Note: I don't mind doing that at all. See the non-union workers (no one is unionized) walked off the job when the majority holding share holders removed the long time and beloved CEO. The workers responded by walking off in all of their 70+ store in MA, NH and Maine. * Walked off, not for more money, or better benefits or anything. But because their boss got fired. I support the workers and I know several other fired workers (supporters of the CEO) who were terminated. I have even met the CEO. I have been shopping with these folks for the last 30 years and they are great folks!
