First smoke of the year, Cuban style pork

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well time for my first smoke of the year I am doing a pork shoulder (I believe it's a shoulder I forgot now). As you can see from the photos this is probably the last run for my smoker, last year it literally did hundreds of pounds of pork & chicken for our dealership feeding a bunch of hungry employees/customers. I have not decided on its replacement yet! For the shoulder I marinated it for a couple days in Mojo marinade with fresh oregano, lime juice, lemon juice, chopped onion and choped garlic. It should be a tasty dinner! grilling_smilie.gif

So far so good! I was thinking of doing this for my next shoulder. What wood are you using for smoke?

This reminds me of Puerco Pilbil. I have done that before and it was pretty awesome. Hard to find banana leaves where I live now so I don't know when I will do that again.

I am using what's called Southern Blend it's sold by a local company, it's on the sweeter side of the spectrum it should compliment the citrus well.

For charcoal I am using good ole Royal Oak. The mop sauce I'm using is what I always see the old Cubans use which is just beer!

Almost as important as the meat itself is the cigar, drink and music selection!

For the cigars I'm starting with the Ashton, then the Liga No. 9 for the back half and the LFD for the after dinner smoke to compliment the spice:

For my drink it will be my go too G&T made with Hendricks gin:

The station for music:

In action, poor old thing:

The fire box handle fell off:

Got a little hot on the bottom so I flipped it and move it down further from the fire:
