pork shoulder

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ive been getting great info fro this site for a couple years now. I just joined and this is my first post.


Ive been using a propane master forge (or something) smoker for a couple years. I recently decided to upgrade. I have a MES 30 headed my way on a UPS truck. Now my question:


I got a deal on a 20 pound pork shoulder. I don't think I will have a problem fitting it in the smoker but is this to big of a piece of meat for the MES 30  ?   I started second guessing if the MES can handle it.  I plan on smoking it next weekend.

It is probably too big. 20 lbs is most likely the whole shoulder. You can split it into the picnic (lower leg) and butt (upper shoulder) and then it will fit fine.
