First butt/shoulder on pellet smoker

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hey gang.  Once again I am turning to my fellow brother and sister smokers for a little advise.

 

I am going to do a couple of shoulders/butts this weekend.  Although it's not my first, it's the first time on my pellet smoker.  I'm using a recipe for a Hawaiian style smoke pulled pork that I've used before with great success.  It calls for a rub of kosher salt, freshly ground pepper and ground green tea.  I'm mixing in some mesquite smoke using my Big Kahuna cold smoker to provide a little more bark.

 

The big question is...at what temp should I put the shoulders/butts in at?  What is my target finished temp?  And any guess as to the approx time figuring a 4-5 lb chunk?

 

It goes without saying but I thank you all for any advice.

Pellet Smoker/Grills are no different than any other smoker you have been using. The pellet smoker may have easier temp control and less babysitting  but you already know how to smoke what you like. If you have gotten good results at 250...Set the Pellet Pooper to 250. If you like the way they pull at an IT of 205 with a rest...Do the same. If you been averaging 14 hours, plan for 14 hours with a 2 hour pad to CYA...JJ
