Pork shoulder in the snow with Q-view

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Getting ready to smoke a 9lb pork shoulder tomorrow. It's going to be almost 30° out tomorrow, so I thought it would be a good day to do it.

 

 

Gave ti a mustard bath, then a good rub,and put it to bed for the night. Got everything ready to set up outside when I get up tomorrow morning. Should be a good day, I'm looking forward to it!

Well, I didn't get up as early as I wanted, but I got everything in just before 8am.

 

All set to go.

 

Fire pan full.

 

Put the meat on the bottom rack this time. 

 

Potatoes in a pan with boiling water. I've not done them like this before, but we don't like them just done on a rack. The skin always is ti dried out. I used to put potatoes in the water pan, but I switched to sand in there. It was a big improvement, now I just have to get potatoes down. Never tried whole onions before, and I ran out of room on the rack lol. So I just put the others on top of the taters. 

 

Yup, we got some snow!

4 hours in, added more fuel.

 

Potatoes are about 1/2 done (so excited! I think we almost like taters water-smoked better than the pork!) 

 

Onions are nice and tender. Taste pretty darn good, too. Should make a good sandwich topping. Bet some would be really good in scrambled eggs.

Looking good!

 

Do the onions serve a purpose during the smoke?  I haven't seen that before

Those onions would be great in salsa or beans on burgers and steaks endless possibilities!!

I bet you could make some pretty amazing bacon jam with those onions.

Hi Mike, 

No, I just wanted to try smoked onions. I like to cook with them and thought they might taste good. They do!:grilling_smilie:

Ok, the potatoes are done. I rinsed the bitter cooking water,and they are pretty darn good. 

 

Ready to come out.

 

Pulled the shoulder out of the snoker at 170° Wrapped in foil and into the oven to finish up. The house smells wonderful!

I finally got a chance to post the last pictures. The bone pulled out nice and clean.

 

 

 

I like a good crusty roll, meat topped with coleslaw. I added some slices of the smoked onion... They put that sammy over the top :drool   

 

Thanks for lookin.
